About the SiS Performance Nitrate Bar
Performance Nitrate Bar is carbohydrate energy bar delivering 30g carbohydrates and 250mg nitrates, sourced from a combination of Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract. This unique source of nitrates provides a superior taste profile compared to anything else on the market. The carbohydrate + nitrate intra bar can be used as part of your loading strategy or taken 60-90 minutes into endurance exercise to provide energy, maintain elevated levels of blood nitrate and reduce the oxygen cost of exercise.
- • 30g Carbohydrate per bar
- • 250mg Nitrates
- • Nitrates sourced from Rhubarb Juice Concentrate and Amaranthus Leaf Extract
- • Use during exercise
- • Reduced oxygen cost of exercise
- • Improved exercise efficiency
- • Informed Sport tested
Consume 1 Performance Nitrate Bar 60-90 minutes into endurance exercise.
Alternatively, Performance Nitrate Bars can be used to meet a nitrate loading protocol in the 1-3 days prior to an endurance event, consuming 1g total nitrates per day on these days.
Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Food Supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet.
The determinants of performance in endurance sports can be categorised as:
- Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2 max¬)
- Lactate threshold (the point at which blood lactate increases above baseline levels)
- Efficiency or economy (the oxygen required to produce a given running speed or cycling power output)
In populations with similar performance characteristics (VO2 max and lactate threshold), efficiency is a better predictor of performance. Essentially, those who can expand less energy and use less oxygen at higher workloads are likely to perform better.
Supplementing with sport nutrition products rich in nitrates can have a direct impact on efficiency and as a result improve performance.

A very easy to digest bar...for a full effect of its contents it is bes to eat a couple a few days before your long ride and then one on the day of the ride. I find this helps me to maintain a good overall effect on the flat and elevations...in my opinion a good product.
