2. A good energy bar is high in carbohydrates and low in fat.
Sometimes it’s simple: you eat an energy bar to fuel your body. Carbohydrates are your body’s favorite energy source. So, a good energy bar should contain a significant amount of carbohydrates. Aim for at least 25 grams of carbohydrates for a bar weighing between 30 to 50 grams.
Also, pay attention to the fat content. Anything up to a maximum of 1 gram of fat per bar is acceptable. Extra fat not only slows down energy absorption but also puts additional strain on your stomach and is often an indicator of poor carbohydrate quality. The lower the fat, the better.
