General FAQs

FAQs for PowerBar® Recovery Bar

  • Who should use the PowerBar® Recovery bars?
    If you train and compete hard and want convenient nutrition to help assist in rebuilding muscle and restoring glycogen stores, PowerBar® Recovery bars are a strong choice. They’re formulated to promote glycogen restoration and support muscle protein repair immediately after exercise.
  • How should I use the PowerBar® Recovery bar?
    Eat a bar as soon as possible after a workout to help jumpstart the recovery process.

    To kick-start muscle glycogen reloading after intense training or competition, athletes should consume about 0.5 grams of carbohydrates per lb (1.1 grams per kg) of body weight within 30 minutes of finishing exercise. You should repeat this in 2 hours if you haven’t made the transition back to your usual, carbohydrate-based snacks and meals. If you will be training or competing within the next 24 hours and you’re looking to kickstart muscle glycogen recovery, try to consume 15-25 grams of protein along with carbs as soon as possible after exercise will promote muscle tissue repair.
  • How does PowerBar® Recovery bar support muscle recovery and repair?
    All PowerBar® Recovery products are formulated with carbs to aid in glycogen restoration and 12g of protein to support muscle protein repair immediately after intense exercise. Some other benefits include:
    • Convenient and easily transportable
    • Contains 12g of protein and 30g of carbs per bar
    • Contains electrolytes including sodium (180 mg)
  • Why is it important to consume carbohydrates with protein?
    Athletes need to consume carbs during recovery to replenish glycogen fuel stores that get depleted during exercise. Protein is helpful because it supplies amino acid building blocks needed for muscle tissue repair and the building of new muscle tissue in response to exercise.
  • I have food allergies. Can I eat PowerBar® Recovery bars?
    PowerBar® Recovery bars contain peanuts, tree nuts, milk, soy, and wheat. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, this product is not for you. We encourage you to read the label for the most up-to-date ingredients list.
  • How should I store my PowerBar® Recovery bar?
    PowerBar® Recovery bars do not have to be refrigerated. We recommend storing the bars in a cool, dry place. In general, it is best to store PowerBar Recovery bars between 40–70° F. Storing a bar in areas where the temperature exceeds 80° F for an extended period of time will result in significant changes to the taste, texture, color, and coating of the product.
  • How long will my PowerBar® Recovery bars last?
    Each PowerBar® Recovery bar is stamped with a “best by” date. We recommend that you use them by the “best by” date to ensure you’re enjoying our best quality product and receiving the full nutritional benefits of the product.
