Veloforte's foundations are based on an ancient Italian fortifier: A delicious blend of fruits, nuts and spices, used to create a speciality of Siena in Tuscany, called Panforte.
The earliest references to Panforte date back to the 13th century. Baked by spice sellers, who were the pharmacists of the day, Panforte was held in high regard not only as a delicious food, but also as a fortifying mix to restore health and vitality, by virtue of the presence of its healing spices.
It is documented that Panforte fuelled the Roman Legions and powered them through the long treks into foreign lands – perfect due to its robust form, energy-giving properties and long life span.
Panforte has been produced by generations of the Giusti family whose ancient and fiercely guarded recipes form the basis of our delicious bars and provide the guidance and values we follow for our break-through range of hydration mixes and all-natural energy nectars (gels) too.
Try some. You'll feel it too.
