When to use
As part of your active lifestyle, during your training or as the ultimate Recovery bar.
Fuelling for exercise is well understood, but for any workout that lasts longer than 90 minutes it is essential that you fuel for your recovery too. The best way to do this is with 100% natural & delicious real food, with the optimal balance of Carbohydrates and Protein.
Fuelling your recovery means you should aim to rehydrate, replenish glycogen stores & start to rebuild muscle within the first 30 minutes after exercise.
Your muscles store energy in the form of glycogen that is released when you exercise. When you work hard your muscles' stores of glycogen are depleted & this is known as the Glycogen Debt. To optimise recovery it is essential to top up these stores - the quicker the better. Glycogen stores are built up by eating glucose and that means that carbohydrates are your best friends at this time.
With a Carbohydrate:Protein ratio of 4:1, each 70g Mocha bar has plenty of the all-natural essential stuff to kick start your recovery.
Recommended intake: consume a Veloforte Protein bar within 30 minutes of finishing exercise.
The 10g complete protein within each Mocha bar comes from a combination of nature's finest natural plant-protein sources...pea, brown rice & hazelnuts.
A complete protein is one which contains all 9 essential amino acids to facilitate muscle repair. As the Mocha bar is 100% plant-based it was essential to combine Pea & Brown Rice Protein to provide a complete amino acid profile making the Mocha perfect for refuelling & 100% Vegan too.
Hazelnuts are also packed full of protein, heart-healthy fats and disease-fighting vitamins and minerals. Regular consumption of hazelnuts may even reduce inflammation...now that is good news for recovery!
