Why are energy bars great for training and exercise?
They contain complex carbs to fuel your muscles
A typical energy bar usually weighs between 45 and 80g and contains roughly 200–300 Cal (840–1,300 kJ. An energy bar is able to provide energy quickly, due to the fact most of the carbohydrates contained are sugars such as fructose, glucose and Maltodextrin combined with complex carbohydrate sources like oats and barley.
They can help to regulate blood sugar levels
Energy bars can metabolize in your body within about 2 hours. This causes your blood sugar to spike, which can stop you feeling faint and fatigued. Energy bars help prevent the spike-crash crave cycle to help regulate your blood sugar levels.
Quick, easy & convenient
Energy bars are so convenient. With long use-by dates they can be thrown in to your gym bag, not taking up any room or time preparing and consumed easily when you need it most. Whether you are a runner or bodybuilder having an energy bar in your bag can give you a much-needed boost when you need one.
Who are energy bars for?
Energy bars can be used as a convenient energy source during sporting events like tennis, cycling, marathons, triathlons and other events. They are also great for most outdoor activities and gym-based training where energy expenditure is high for sustained periods of time.
Not all energy bars are created equal. There are literally hundreds of choices but you can rest assured knowing SportsFuel have selected only the best energy bars to fuel your training.
