Nutritional information of energy bars Energy Fig

The ingredients for the production of Energy Fig energy bars were chosen in order to develop a suitable product for sport and physical activity. The goal was for the energy bars to be as complete a nutritional supplement as possible, which was, in turn, easy to eat during any training or competition.

The combination of figs and almonds, and other dried fruits, provides a rich source of carbohydrates that can be assimilated at varying speeds, both fast and slow. The nuts also provide protein and “good” fats.

Each energy bar also provides a large number of vitamins and minerals including potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamins A, B and C, and fibre.

Every 100g provides approximate values of: 385-395 kcal, 75-78 gr. of carbohydrates, 7 gr. of fat, 5-6 gr. of protein and up to 3-7 gr. of fibre.

And, as each energy bar weighs about 45 grams, this provides approximately: 175-178 kcal, 34-36 gr. of carbohydrates, 3 gr. of fat, 2-5 gr. of protein and up to 1.6-3.6 gr. of fibre.

Sports that recommend the use of Energy Fig bars

For longer distances and more demanding journeys, the consumption of 2 Energy Fig bars in combination with 500ml of an isotonic drink and 500ml of water will cover a cyclist's needs for one hour, even on hotter days. Following this guideline, a cyclist would consume 1000ml of liquid, 90g of carbohydrates and 300mg of sodium per hour, amounts that cover the needs for energy, mineral salts and water. Of course, the amount of liquid and food required by an individual will depend on the intensity of the exercise, the temperature and humidity, and preferences and needs.

Running on foot limits the intake of solid foods, firstly due to the problem of chewing (which can mean swallowing air or producing wind) and secondly, solid food is more difficult to digest, so it stays in the stomach longer and causes stomach problems. However, for athletes who are used to ingesting solid foods during competitions and training, we provide the following recommendations for consumption: 1 Energy Fig energy bar, 2 glasses of and isotonic drink and 1 or 2 glasses of water for each hour of physical activity. This guideline provides 72g of carbohydrates, 700ml of liquid and 340mg of sodium every hour. These quantities are approximate and it may be necessary to adapt the quantities according to the characteristics and individual needs of each runner.

Energy Fig energy bars are especially useful for hikers and trekkers because they have a high calorific value but take up very little space. Recommendations: 1 Energy Fig bar in combination with water and some fruit every half a day. This guideline will more than cover the amount of energy, water and mineral salts that the body needs to enjoy a day of trekking.
