Powerbar Performance Smoothie review


If naturalness is high on your priority list, PowerBar’s updated Performance Smoothie could be just the ticket (read our guide to using energy gels).

Designed to be easier to swallow than bars yet more satisfying than gels, each pouch is made from at least 65% fruit purée (depending on flavour), and provides 28g of carbohydrate, balanced to give a 2:1 ratio of glucose to fructose for faster absorption.

PowerBar also adds 212mg of sodium (the main electrolyte lost in sweat) and the pouches are resealable with a nifty twist-top design. The texture was very agreeable – not quite as smooth as a gel, but very natural and more filling.

The fruity and not overly sweet apricot and peach flavour is also extremely authentic. And, while they’re significantly dearer than PowerBar’s own PowerGels, the cost is still reasonable.

Verdict: A tasty, more satiating and very natural alternative to gels, 88%
