Reviews PowerBar Performance Bar review - Energy Bars - Nutrition

PowerBar Performance Bar review

Having kick-started the American energy bar market, the PowerBar brand has now diversified across various nutrition products. But the original bar remains the same, albeit with a few ingredient tweaks.

As with PowerBar’s gels, the Performance bar has increased in sodium, from 100mg per bar to 230mg, which improves fluid absorption and compensates for sweat losses. The bar is also 5g smaller, reducing energy intake by around 17 cals per bar.

The bars are best used prior to training for a carbo boost or during sessions to increase endurance. The texture is slightly crispy but easier to chew than previous formulations.
