About PROTEIN20 Bars
Protein is a key nutrient for active individuals, be they endurance, gym, lifestyle or team-sport focused. While carbohydrate intake can often change day-to-day, depending on the workload of that day, protein intake should never be compromised.
There are thousands of proteins in our bodies, all of which perform a variety of daily functions to promote health, well-being and performance. We must consume adequate protein in our diet so that we have the relevant building blocks to make the new proteins required for our body to function.
When strength training, the combination of lifting weights and protein intake is used to build new proteins, especially the contractile proteins. This repeated muscle damage and protein feeding results in muscle growth.
In relation to endurance performance, protein intake is equally as important. In this situation the stress of endurance exercise creates a signal to instruct our muscles to make new proteins involved in aerobic energy production.

Lovely flavour. Great post bike ride.
Love these protein bars. Good amount of protein with very small sugar content make these bars a must to up your protein intake.
After tough training sessions and long days out on the bike, these little bars come in so handy for kick starting my recovery. Been using them a few months now and really impressed with them. Always keep a box in the cupboard as they tend to get eaten quickly ;)
Not so keen myself but the wife loves them
Better than the Rego vanilla.
Great 20g protein shot - a bit sweet for my taste, but preferable to the Plant ones
Yummy, yummy! Nice protein snack to have after workout.
Great deal buying in box format

Great for a snack when you don't want to be consuming too many carbs.

Don't usually use bars myself but my wife loves these, says they are the best tasting and great at upping her protein intake
