powerbar c2 max blend

Last week when I was thinking about how various energy bars stack up against the Cheetah Bar, I decided it could be a potential Powerbar replacement.

While I still think that’s true, I have some more information to pass along about Powerbars, specifically the new C2 MAX carbohydrate blend they are using these days.

This new blend consists of organic evaporated cane juice syrup, maltodextrin, and fructose. So it sounds like they’re on the right track. (They used to use high fructose corn syrup and other crap!)

How would I know? Because I was reviewing a recent study about how certain combinations of carbohydrates were shown to increase athletic performance.

Check the study if you want, but basically it says to consume a 2:1 ratio of glucose to fructose for maximum benefit. And you guessed it, this new Powerbar formula delivers carbs in that exact ratio!

Supposedly Powerbar formulated the C2 MAX blend to take advantage of these findings, but I can’t verify that, so this could have been one of those studies to verify (i.e. publicize and draw attention to) how great these new Powerbars are. 😉

Either way, being able to take in and use a greater number of carbs per hour is a good thing.
