Our new Energy Bar with Protein is packed with 10g of protein and 19g of carbohydrate per bar, but what is the benefit of carbohydrate energy with protein?
It can be useful to take on an all-in-one energy and protein blend when you anticipate a period of hard training, on multi-day endurance events or when you plan on taking a big step up in training intensity or volume – such as a training camp.
This is because research shows that carbohydrate-protein ingestion improves endurance performance to a greater extent than carbohydrate alone, particularly in cycling.1,3,4 Meaning you can benefit from taking on additional protein as part of your nutrition plan during your training.
Research also shows that carbohydrates with additional protein calories reduces time to fatigue in endurance athletes2 as well as reducing muscle damage2,4 – meaning protein is not just for recovery! Athletes that take part in endurance sport can benefit from additional protein with carbohydrates.
When upping your training intensity or taking on a multi-day event, it’s more important than usual to take care of your recovery so you can continue and finish strong throughout.
Energy Drink with Protein
Our Energy Drink with Protein is formulated with this in mind – making it an all-in-one sports drink for both during and after exercise. With a blend of carbs, protein and key electrolytes, it helps sustain performance as well as promotes the growth and recovery of normal muscles – this can result in stronger, more resilient muscles.
Energy Bar with Protein
As a continuation of our Energy with Protein Range, we’ve developed Energy Bar with Protein – an all-in-one sports bar with 10g of plant-based protein.
With a mix of real fruits, nuts and seeds, Energy Bar with Protein is the optimal great tasting balance of ingredients for any training session or active lifestyle. Made with real food and filled with plant-based protein, this bar fits right in your jersey pocket for the perfect mid-ride snack.
Energy Bar with Protein is formulated with pea protein, which has all the essential and branched chain amino acids your body needs but cannot create itself. It’s also easy to digest and suitable for vegans, making it the ideal bar for those looking to follow a more plant-based diet.
As always, we don’t compromise taste for performance. We’re here to end the idea that something which genuinely works and supports your body, should taste artificial, and we push to create scientifically engineered sports nutrition that tastes delicious.
Energy Bar with Protein comes in two delicious flavours, Peanut & Banana and Cacao and Raspberry – made with real ingredients such as dried fruit, nuts and seeds, with no unnecessary fillers or artificial flavours.
