Product Description

Product Description:

Fairtrade moist and chewy energy bar utilising multiple-transportable carbohydrates // with TORQ ribose...

Each TORQ bar contains 30 grams of carbohydrate and represents 1 TORQ Unit, which gives you with the same carbohydrate dose as a TORQ gel or 500ml of TORQ energy drink. This concept has enabled us to launch the new TORQ Fuelling System, which makes fuelling for endurance sport extremely easy to understand.



TORQ Fuelling System

  • A Fairtrade product
  • Very low in fat
  • Easy to eat
  • Suitable for Vegans


Further Information:

  • Organic (Soil Association Certified) option**
  • No colours, artificial flavours or preservatives

TORQ bar has been painstakingly formulated to produce a food that is ultra high in carbohydrate, very low in fat and with ingredients wide-ranging in glycaemic index for immediate and sustained glucose release. Just as important, this bar has been designed to taste great with a cup of tea too! All too often energy bars are dry and difficult to eat - and those that aren't contain far too much fat. TORQ bars are delicious, moist and chewy, containing just over 2grams of fat per 100 (a little over a gram per bar) and packed with usable carbohydrate. This makes it the perfect food and fuel choice before, during and after exercise.


TORQ bar was developed to satisfy the needs of athletes and physically active people. Many energy bars on the market cater for some of these needs, but we don’t believe they have addressed them all. Here is what athletes and physically active people need:

Carbohydrate: They ‘need’ carbohydrate full stop. They ‘need’ it whilst they exercise to spare their limited glycogen reserves and at rest to top their valuable stores back up again. TORQ bar contains 30 grams of carbohydrate per bar and TORQ bar’s unique blend of Maltodextrin and Fructose Syrup maximises ‘available’ carbohydrate*. Each 45 gram bar represents 1 TORQ Unit and forms part of the TORQ Fuelling System.


Glycaemic Index: They ‘need’ a food with ingredients wide-ranging in glycaemic index for immediate and sustained release of glucose into the bloodstream. TORQ bar has been carefully formulated to include ingredients with low, moderate and high glycaemic indices for this purpose with the main syrup matrix being based on the 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose research*.


Ultra low fat: They ‘need’ a food that is ultra low in fat to guarantee rapid digestion and minimize the intake of ineffective calories. TORQ bar contains only 2 grams of fat per 100g (about a gram per bar). Check the fat content of other energy bars on the market.


Easy to eat: They ‘need’ a food that is easy to eat, or they won’t eat enough of it to derive the benefits. There are too many dry energy bars out there, making it difficult to supply sufficient carbohydrate calories - the ones that aren’t dry tend to contain too much fat. TORQ bar is delightfully moist and chewy, yet it remains ultra low in fat and high in carbohydrate.

Tasty: They also ‘need’ a food that tastes so good that they choose to snack on it in preference to high fat, less effective alternatives. Some energy bars are encapsulated with chocolate to entice the customer into buying. Many of these bars taste great, but you can’t coat a bar with chocolate and keep it low in fat. Therefore the product becomes compromised and less effective in supplying useful energy. The careful formulation and preparation of TORQ bar has ensured a delicious deep flavour, with a mouth-feel more commonly associated with a higher fat food.


Ribose: Finally, athletes and physically active people ‘need’ to recover quickly if they are to maintain a lively performance day in day out. The simple and complex carbohydrates in TORQ bar will rapidly re-stock the body’s depleted glycogen stores, but will do nothing to address the actual energy charge of the muscle cells. After particularly heavy physical training, full recovery at a cellular level can take many days. Research has proven that supplementation with ribose can boost cellular recovery by a staggering 340-430%*. Ribose is natural sugar present within every living cell of the body and is used to manufacture ATP (the energy currency of the cell) from scratch. Whilst the body can manufacture its own ribose from glucose, this requires energy and is a very slow process. Supplementing with ribose simply bypasses this course of action.

TORQ bars are made with a high proportion of fairly traded fruit and our ingredient listings are simple and NATURAL. TORQ Bars weigh 45g, are sold individually or in packs of 24 and are available in the following flavours:
TANGY APRICOT // SUNDRIED BANANA // RASPBERRY & APPLE // PINEAPPLE & GINGER // ORGANIC MANGO**

TORQ bar has been designed to work in conjunction with TORQ Energy and TORQ Gel as part of the TORQ Fuelling System. This system is very easy to understand and makes fuelling your performance very straight forward. Each TORQ bar contains 30g of carbohydrate and represents 1 TORQ Unit. Research suggests that consuming 60-90g of carbohydrate per hour (based on our use of multiple-transportable carbohydrates) is optimal. This equates to 2-3 TORQ units per hour.

Energy Food & Gels Guide

What are energy food and gels?

Energy food and gels are ready to consume and give you a welcome boost if you’re flagging during your ride. There are also products designed to help you recover afterwards, replacing lost vitamins and minerals and providing protein to help repair tired muscles.

Who needs energy food and gels?

If you’re putting in long training sessions or competing in sportives or races, energy products can be a great addition to your saddle bag or pocket. It’s important to replace lost calories and eating on the move may not seem the easiest task, but it can be the difference between finishing a race or calling it quits midway.

What are the choices?

Energy food takes the shape of inidividually wrapped bars which can be easily transported. Gels come in sachets and can be taken on their own or diluted with water. There’s a wide range of flavours, so try out a few to find the best match.

What should I buy with it?

Energy drink is another product which can assist your riding. You’ll need bottles for this to keep it handy on the move.

Anything else?

Please don’t litter the roads by throwing away your empty wrapper. Put it in your pocket or shove it down your shorts til you get chance to dispose of it properly.

See our Food and drink guide for more.
