Why We Keep Our Sugar in the Single Digits

Quest Protein Bars, Hero Protein Bars, Protein Cookies, and Snack Bars use sweeteners like erythritol and stevia, which help avoid blood sugar spikes and contribute either zero-calories or very few calories to our products. That means every person, regardless of sugar restrictions, can enjoy a sweet snack with Quest.

Stevia Sweeteners

A zero-calorie sweetener derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana. Does not metabolize in the body and does not spike blood sugar.


A zero-calorie sugar alcohol that occurs in nature in small amounts and is made through fermentation. Does not metabolize in the body and does not spike blood sugar.


A low-calorie sweetener with 1/10th the calories of table sugar. Used in Quest Hero Bars and occurs naturally in certain foods like figs and raisins.


A zero-calorie sweetener and sugar substitute. Up to 600 times the sweetness of table sugar, so used in very low quantities in Quest products.

Reasons we Limit Sugar

Our metabolic truth is based on the idea that everyone should be able to enjoy our snacks and foods. By making our foods sweet without all the sugar, we offer people the freedom to feed their cravings.
