Dose: For optimal recovery purposes, larger individuals (over 70Kg) should consume 2 bars or use TORQ Recovery Drink.

Our TORQ Recovery bars are precisely formulated at a ratio of 3:1 Carbohydrate:Whey Protein with an extremely low fat content (the lowest of any high protein bar that we know of on the market) for rapid nutrient absorption and subsequent delivery to fatigued muscles. TORQ Recovery bars are cold-pressed from natural ingredients, meaning that they are not cooked or baked and are certified Fairtrade, ensuring that farmers in developing countries are paid a fair price for the crops they produce.

TORQ RECOVERY BAR: Technical Information

TORQ Recovery Bar utilises a 3:1 blend of Carbohydrate and 100% Whey Protein: Research has proven that consuming Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates and Whey Protein at a 3:1 ratio immediately after exercise will speed up glycogen synthesis. In other words, it will help you to store carbohydrate more effectively than consuming carbohydrate alone and/or waiting until 'glycogen storage' window of opportunity has passed. It is also proven beyond doubt that Whey Protein is faster acting, more soluble and absorbed/synthesised more rapidly than any other protein source and thus it gives the amino acids necessary for muscular repair with little delay.

TORQ Recovery Bar contains only 1.5g fat for rapid nutrient absorption: Fat slows down the absorption of protein and carbohydrate from the gut, so for these vital nutrients to get delivered into the bloodstream quickly, consumption of a low fat product post-exercise is essential and this is where many other similar products on the market fall down. Failure to absorb the nutrients quickly will hamper the recovery process, because of the narrow time window that exists to take on board these calories. We can confidently claim that the TORQ Recovery Bar is the lowest fat product of its kind in the marketplace by a significant margin.

TORQ Recovery Bar contains 13.5g of fast-acting Whey Protein: By using an innovative new whey protein crisp along with premium quality whey protein concentrate, 100% of the protein in the TORQ Recovery bar is derived from whey. Although the protein content of this bar isn't as high as some other protein bars on the market, the purpose of this bar is to fast-track recovery after exercise, not solely to deliver protein. The 3:1 credentials are far more important from an endurance activity recovery perspective than cramming in more protein. Irrespective of this however, 13.5g is still a significant protein dose.

TORQ Recovery Bar offers versatility for snacking or prescribed use during exercise: As the TORQ Recovery bar contains a strong dose of whey protein, it can be used casually as a snack during the day to maintain protein levels in the blood to aid recovery and body maintenance. The natural fruit sugars and rice syrup contained within the bars will also give carbohydrate to help re-stock vital glycogen stores. Consuming protein during exercise is generally not advised, because it slows down the delivery of carbohydrate, but there is a strong argument that on training camps and multi-day events where the endurance load is particularly high and repetitive, consuming some protein periodically (infrequently) can support long-term performance. Finding low fat sources of protein that can be absorbed quickly whilst exercising to avoid gastrointestinal distress/not interfere with fuelling strategies, is often very difficult. The TORQ Recovery bar represents the perfect solution to this problem with its rapid absorption properties.

TORQ Recovery Bar contains no colours, flavours, preservatives or artificial sweeteners: It is of utmost importance to us at TORQ that our performance products are as natural as possible, not just for health reasons, but fundamentally because we consider that anything added to one of our products that doesn't essentially need to be there is a barrier to absorption. If it's not needed, we don't put it in.

How many bars should I consume? Consuming 1 bar will assist anyone through the recovery process, but it is only optimal for smaller individuals weighing up to 55Kg. After exhaustive exercise, we strongly suggest that larger individuals either consume 2 bars, or use our TORQ Recovery Drink, where the dose can be fine-tuned to an individual's bodyweight. It's worth noting, as suggested earlier in the product summary, that you may consider some exercise sessions as not being strenuous enough to justify a full dose of TORQ Recovery Drink, so a single TORQ Recovery Bar for a larger individual in this instance would represent the perfect choice.

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.
