PowerBar Performance Product Information

Low fat. PowerBar contains less than 2.5 grams of fat, which is naturally present in ingredients such as grains, cocoa, peanut and other nut butters. With less than 10% of calories from fat, PowerBar is an excellent low fat energy source for athletes and active people on-the-go.

Complex carbohydrates. PowerBar contains maltodextrin (a complex carbohydrate from corn), brown rice, and oat bran. About 65 percent of PowerBar´s 45 grams of carbohydrates are complex carbohydrates.

Simple carbohydrates. Fructose, which comes from corn, grapes, and pears, is the main source of quick energy in PowerBar. About 35 percent of PowerBar´s 45 grams of carbohydrates are simple carbohydrates.

High quality milk protein (lactose removed). PowerBar contains high quality milk protein, with the lactose (milk sugar) removed.

Free-form amino acids. More than 200 mg. of high quality, free-form amino acids-leucine, valine and isoleucine-are added to each PowerBar.

Vitamins and minerals. PowerBar delivers the vitamins and minerals vital for energy metabolism, including 100 percent of the U.S. RDA of vitamins C, E, and the B-complex vitamins, and 30 to 35 percent of essential minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium, and magnesium.

Fiber. The oat bran in PowerBar provides high quality soluble fiber.

A high energy-to-weight ratio. PowerBars won´t melt, break or crumble under adverse conditions. This makes PowerBar an ideal food to take on mountain climbing expeditions, hikes, rafting trips or bike races.

A twelve-month shelf life, thanks to the mylar wrapper. Each bar is coded with a ´best by´ date and needs no refrigeration. Keep PowerBars in the glove compartment, a purse, briefcase, desk drawer, fanny pack or backpack for energy when it´s needed most.

Try PowerBars...

Before Intensive Efforts Try chunks of PowerBar 15-60 minutes before hard workouts. A whole or partial PowerBar can be eaten much closer to the start of activity than many foods. Allow a little extra time before competitions because nervous tension may slow digestion.

During Prolonged Events Such as races, triathlons, long hikes or other exercise that lasts more than two hours. Eat one bar per hour of activity, or break the bar into smaller chucks and eat at intervals.

After Your Activity One PowerBar immediately after intensive activity as a source of essential energy related nutrients.

As a Snack Keep a few PowerBars on hand for a low-fat, convenient snack. Packed with carbohydrates, they will satisfy hunger for hours and provide extra energy while you´re on-the-go.

As Nutrition Insurance PowerBars are loaded with vitamins, minerals and branched-chain amino acids, so they help you meet your body´s nutritional requirements.

For Best Results:

Drink 8-16 ounces of water with each PowerBar Performance bar to aid in absorption of nutrients and to help maintain hydration.

My supplement addiction can probably be traced back to PowerBars, the first sports nutrition product I used. This is weak as a protein bar, with just 10 grams of protein per 240 calorie bar. These are primarily for energy, with 46 grams of carbohydrates, and around 25 grams of sugar. The original PowerBars are low in fat, with around 3.5 grams per bar. There's a sprinkling of amino acids in the bar, and just two grams of fiber. Impressively, PowerBars have vitamins and minerals, such as B and C vitamins. Carb sources are malto, dextrose, fructose and evaporated cane juice. Despite all of the sugar, these bars are far from gourmet. The best flavors are Apple Cinnamon, Oatmeal Raisin and Peanut Butter (though everyone else I take to hates this flavor). Very chewy, odd consistency.
