Next to the right sports drink also energy bars are often crucial for a quick and easily digestible energy supply during (endurance) exercise. Bars high in protein, fat and fiber slow down gastric emptying, and consequently the rate of absorption of the desired energy source (carbohydrates). Moreover, such bars are often the cause of a “full” feeling and gastrointestinal complaints.
The 6d ENERGY CAKE is an easily digestible, carbohydrate-rich “cake” that ensures fast energy supply. One serving contains 31g of carbohydrates in a 2:1 glucose to fructose ratio. Thanks to this 2:1 ratio the body can absorb up to 90g of carbohydrates per hour. In contrast to most other bars, this cake also contains 141 mg of sodium. The addition of sodium allows for a quick replenishment of the salt reserves in the body. This is particularly important for athletes who not only sweat a lot, but also sweat out lots of salts, and especially during exercise in a hot environment that causes high sweat losses.
In short, the 6d ENERGY CAKE is the ideal choice for all athletes who need fast-available energy, and especially in a hot and/or humid environment.
Use 2-4 pieces (44-88g) per hour of exercise, depending on exercise duration and intensity.
Because of the high concentration of carbohydrates (sugars) and sodium, it is recommended to always use the 6d ENERGY CAKE in combination with water. This to ensure good absorption and to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal complaints during exercise.
