The incredibly moist Torq bar is based on a simple list of ingredients that includes oats, raisins, maltodextrin, fructose syrup, apricot and puffed rice. This makes for a low fat, high carb, easy-to-chew bar with very little aftertaste or stickiness. It also includes a small supplement of ribose (which aids cell and muscle tissue renewal), but at just 50mg per bar this probably won’t benefit performance that much. However, the vitamin and mineral mixture will provide 30-80% of RDA of 13 nutrients.
We tried the tangy apricot, which tasted lovely and is perfect for just before and after training. Other original flavours in the range include pineapple and ginger, raspberry and apple, and banana. If you find other bars taste a bit like sawdust or the flavours are a bit bland, then Torq is a very good alternative.
