Carbohydrates are macronutrients that feed the muscles and brain, which the body then uses for energy, speed, stamina and concentration - all the necessary requirements of a good session in the saddle!
The purpose of a performance energy bar is to provide the necessary carbohydrate loading your body requires in the lead-up to and during significant physical exertion. This is particularly true for high-intensity workouts or long-endurance events. Think of this nutrition as a form of fuel for your body.
