Apricot, Almonds & Fennel
12g of complete protein energy bar & award-winning recipe.
Fuelling for exercise is well understood, but for any workout that lasts longer than 90 minutes it is essential that you fuel for your recovery too (30,31). The best way to do this is with 100% natural & delicious real food, with the optimal balance of Carbohydrates and Protein (16-18).
Juicy apricots, crunchy almonds, aromatic fennel & the power of complete protein makes the Forza the optimal workout refuelling and protein bar.
"Yum... lovely chewy texture & not too sweet. Feels like you're eating your way back. It's fantastic!" - Jonny, Bedfordshire
Fuelling your recovery means you should aim to rehydrate, replenish glycogen stores & start to rebuild muscle within the first 30 minutes after exercise (30).
Your muscles store energy in the form of glycogen that is released when you exercise. When you work hard your muscles' stores of glycogen are depleted & this is known as the Glycogen Debt. To optimise recovery it is essential to top up these stores - the quicker the better. Glycogen stores are built up by eating glucose and that means that carbohydrates are your best friends at this time (30).
With an optimised Carbohydrate:Protein ratio of 3:1, each 70g Forza bar has enough of the essential stuff to kick start your recovery (17,18).
Each Forza bar is packed full of apricots, orange juice, agave nectar, cane sugar & honey...100% natural rapidly available carbohydrates to restore those tired muscles.
Our apricots are unsulphured so are naturally darker & sweeter, full of essential carbohydrates, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals (29). Fennel is a great source of manganese & is recognised for its anti-inflammatory power (33), perfect to regulate blood sugar (32) & calm muscle soreness after prolonged exercise.
Protein repairs & rebuilds muscle tissue after exercise (16). The 12g protein within the Forza comes from one of nature's best natural complete protein sources... egg whites
A complete protein is one which contains all 9 essential amino acids to facilitate muscle repair. With a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score of 1.0 (the highest level possible) our pasteurised egg whites are free from saturated fat & cholesterol, easy to digest and 100% natural (34).
