All about the composition of our energy bars

At HolyFat, we have chosen quality ingredients to meet your needs. Our energy bars are rich in lipids, vitamins and minerals that come from:

  • MCT oil: MCT oil stimulates the production of ketones that improves cognitive functions which promotes concentration of the athlete. MCT powder also helps to reduce body weight and waist circumference, which helps to manage blood sugar or blood sugar.
  • Cocoa butter: Very rich in vitamins and mineral salts especially, cocoa butter helps to maintain the acid-base balance in the muscles, thus reducing the appearance of cramps and promoting recovery. It also contains omega 9, which are very good for the cardiovascular system but also vitamins A, B and C.
  • Almonds: Rich in lipids, omega 9, fiber, protein and mineral salts, Almonds promote the transport of oxygen to the muscles which makes it the ideal ingredient for longer and more intense physical activity.
  • Cocoa powder: Cocoa is rich in flavonoids, powerful antioxidants that promote cardiovascular health and nitrates, which dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation and reduce oxygen consumption, allowing athletes to run longer.
  • Coconut: Rich in fiber and minerals such as magnesium and potassium, coconut will help you replenish your energy reserves while giving you a feeling of satisfaction.
  • Freeze-dried raspberry: Raspberry stimulates intestinal transit and thus facilitates digestion. Raspberries are good sources of manganese, vitamin C, and mineral elements (especially iron to facilitate oxygen transport). Raspberry also brings this light touch of acid to give you an exceptional taste.The Holyfat energy bar is not organic. We choose local and qualitative ingredients even though they are not organic.

What is an energy bar?

An energy bar or "energy bar" is a solid food that allows you to add calories during the effort to avoid our body having to dip into reserves. This calorie intake can (and must) be supplemented by other active ingredients such as proteins, vitamins (vitamin C, group B) and minerals (magnesium, sodium, potassium, etc.). 

Energy bars are very caloric, they give you a boost, especially during high intensity or prolonged activity and are ideal to compensate for your energy losses. The energy bars are intended for athletes, whether amateur or professional. They support athletes during their physical efforts to improve their performance. They have several advantages in the context of sport, as long as they are chosen correctly and consumed correctly.However, we must not confuse an energy bar, which is intended for sport, with a cereal bar, which more often has a recreational or cutting-off hunger.

Why eat a sugarless energy bar instead of a sugary energy bar or a protein bar?

By definition, protein bars are high in protein. They are more suited to a recovery role after exertion and are intended to help muscles develop. It is for this purpose that they play a snack role after the effort. Of course, they will not replace daily meals, but can help satisfy a craving in the middle of the day.

Conversely, the energy bar (or energy bar) is intended primarily for athletes looking for suitable supplements, whether they are runners or weight training practitioners. It is generally high in kilojoules. The energy bar is therefore generally rich in either carbohydrates or lipids. Their protein content is fairly average. This bar was designed for athletes and athletes who need to refuel before and during physical exertion. It is these energy sources that allow them to feed their muscles before and during each performance. These two types of energy bars have different objectives.

Indeed:The carbohydrate-rich energy bar will be preferred for short-term physical activity or for intense exertion at a time T, since it gives the body a source of energy to use instantly. Therefore, it should not be consumed in large quantities or at any time at the risk of ending up with a high glycemic index, while the sugarless energy bar focuses on lipids, which are major components of the membranes and nervous system. They are the source of hormones and other important molecules. They contribute to the intake of fat-soluble vitamins and provide essential fatty acids for longer and more intense physical activity.

The high-fat energy bar is, of course, an important energy reserve. It replaces carbohydrate intake when these are lacking by the ketosis process. By using glycerol from fats (triglycerides), the body breaks down amino acids to make glucose. This is called neoglucogenesis. The body then manages to maintain its glycogen level at half of its optimal value, without inducing risk of muscle loss, on the contrary: in ketosis, mitochondria are adapted to burn in priority ketones bodies and fatty acids to bring energy, preserving protein and sugar reserves.

The sugarless energy bar can be consumed before, during and after exercise. It can also be used as an appetite suppressant in the case of low hunger.

What is the purpose of lipids in an energy bar?

Lipids have six essential functions in the body:

  • To provide a large, concentrated supply of energy.
  • To protect organs.
  • To provide thermal protection for the body.
  • To carry fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K).
  • To provide essential fatty acids which play a vital role in the manufacture of certain hormones (including testosterone), the structure of all cells, etc.
  • To enhance the taste and texture of food and to promote the feeling of satiety.

How to consume your energy bar?

In order to consume an energy bar correctly, a distinction must be made between sports with high and low shock waves. Cycling, for example, causes less shock to the body. All athletes can consume energy bars. All sportsmen and women can consume energy bars, but cyclists prefer them because of their intestinal benefits.

For sports such as running, trail running, marathons and similar sports, which generate much greater impact on the body, the bar should be eaten in small, chewy pieces. Otherwise, the stomach will have to work harder to digest the bar, which is generally not appropriate for physical activity.

Slightly slowing down can also help to avoid side stitches. Furthermore, during endurance or ultra-trail events, the intake of solids is recommended for taste, energy and psychological reasons.

Which bar to choose before and after sports?

Before and during physical exercise it is best to take an energy bar without sugars. This will provide immediate energy that can be used by our body and avoid food cravings. After the effort, we recommend eating a full meal. However, if you do not have time, you can consume a high-fat bar to give you the necessary energy until your next meal. In parallel, a sugar-free protein bar can help speed recovery and strengthen your muscles.

When to eat an energy bar?

A Holyfat energy bar contains 230Kcal. It is advisable to consume one hour before your physical effort and then every 2h-2h30 of effort in order to bring you the necessary energy for your physical activity and to avoid the attacks of hunger. Looking for an energetic bike, trail, running bar?

Whatever energy bar you choose for your sports practice, it is important to consume it at the right time and frequency depending on the type of sport you are playing. If food can build up glycogen stocks, physical activity will reduce some or all of these energy reserves. It is therefore essential to maintain them when making an effort, and to reconstitute them during the recovery phase. An energy bar helps meet these needs by accompanying each athlete to help him improve his performance and achieve his goals. To avoid the famous «food cravings», it is advisable to have a regular energy intake during exercise. A fat-rich energy bar can be consumed in small portions, before, during and after exercise.

What is a protein bar without sugars?

A sugar-free protein bar is an energy bar that contains a significant amount of protein and is normally free of added sugars. The benefits of a sugar-free protein bar may depend on the specific composition of the bar, but here are some potential benefits:Promotes muscle recovery: Protein bars are high in protein, which are essential for muscle recovery after exercise. Proteins help repair damaged muscle tissue during training, which can help improve muscle strength and function.

Appetite Control: Sugar-free protein bars can help control appetite because of their protein content. Protein can help increase satiety, which can help you feel full longer and avoid cravings.

Convenience: Sugar-free protein bars can be a convenient option for people who need a quick snack or meal that is easy to take away. They are often easily transportable and can be consumed at any time of the day.

Performance Improvement: Sugar-free protein bars can help improve performance by increasing muscle strength and endurance, It is important to note that the benefits of sugar-free protein bars can vary depending on the brand, the composition and how they are consumed. It is also important to consume them in addition to a healthy and balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
