Powerbar ProteinPlus Bites - Box (8 Pouches) $0.00
Like chocolate truffles for the bike.
We take protein supplements to consume protein, not to load up on carbs and calories like we're eating a candy bar. When you're on the go, the PowerBar ProteinPlus Bites provide what you need and let you leave the powder mixes at home. The ProteinPlus Bites don't just taste good, they also pack a punch of protein for improved recovery and growth after you get broken off on your ride. Go ahead and load up; you won't be heading back to brick energy bars anytime soon.
There are a number of misconceptions in the field of resistance-workout recovery, both from scientists and enthusiasts alike. Sports physiologists have a tendency to overload their athletes with supplemental protein, and athletes have a tendency to blindly follow the advice of the people that they pay to the letter. However, recent studies have arrived at the conclusion that post-workout tissue recovery is maximized at the 20g level of protein. And being at the forefront of the sports nutrition, PowerBar has adopted this level to its ProteinPlus formula. Using PowerBar's TriSource protein blend of whey, soy, and casein, the ProteinPlus formula is absorbed at different rates in order to provide a steady supply of amino acids to the body. The constant flow of amino acids aids in the repair of muscle tissue, reduces breakdown, and helps to build lean muscle growth. The ProteinPlus formula also dispels the practice of pairing protein intake with an elevated consumption of carbohydrates. While carbs are necessary to replenish depleted glycogen stores during exercise, they don't assist in muscle protein synthesis. PowerBar's formula uses a minimal amount of carbs, and the result is a low, 130 calorie full serving of protein.
With ProteinPlus Bites, your post-workout ritual couldn't be easier. 30-60 minutes after your workout, munch down on one bite and reap the benefits.
The PowerBar ProteinPlus Bites come with eight Bites per box and available in the flavors Chocolate Peanut Butter and Fudge Brownie.
What community has to say
Resealable packaging a real bonus!! Taste is above average for this type of product.
No waiste or feeling like you need to eat the whole bar.
The zip lock package was a big plus. I felt like I could dial in the right portion for the activity without wasting half a bar or feeling too heavy.
