Performance Nitrate Bar Apple - 6 Pack
About 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.
The determinants of performance in endurance sports can be categorised as:
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.

Very chewy and bland. Hard to eat while riding. Not nice at all. Texture is hard to define.
Very expensive unfortunately or I would buy more frequently - for the required loading of 1000mg of nitrate per day (their recommendation) that would take 4 bars - given that 6 bars currently cost around £10-£12 that is cost prohibitive from being effective for nitrate loading unfortunately, leaving only the options of the nitrate shots or powder - those are both quite expensive too (!) but not quite as much as this!
Same thing… never arrived..
A bit too advanced for my running, but great to consume in the last hour of cycling, if you've still got to water/ isotonic to help chew in small bites. To save faffing about I remove from packaging & put streight into Nutrition bag, as the packet isn't easy to access.
As bars go, these do actually taste good
Great taste & good texture that is easy to eat while riding
Great tasting bar, good energy boost
Pleasant taste, nice consistency, easier to eat whilst riding than some bars & kind on the stomach
This is the second box of these I've bought, personally I prefer the taste of the Strawberry, hence four stars. But performance they are good.

Placebo effect or not these are good
