This Protein Crunch Bar contains 20 grams of high-quality proteins, is delicious, and low in fats and sugars. This allows you to actively work on your recovery, fitness, and muscle building without gaining weight or consuming a lot of fats. Often, Protein bars are associated with a high percentage of fats and inferior proteins, causing them to miss their goal. For this bar, we have used ‘our crunch formula,’ which we previously used for the Pro Crunch bar. Tasty, low in fat, and with high-quality proteins.

Protein bars promote muscle mass growth when part of a balanced diet and supported by a physical training program. To stimulate muscle mass development, consume the protein bar within 30 minutes after the end of your workout when the body absorbs proteins most effectively. Recovery after a sports performance is as important as the training itself. Immediately after a prolonged or intense effort, the body needs to replenish depleted reserves. Of course, it is impossible to build muscles without physical training, even if you consume proteins daily.

Protein bars and daily nutrition

First and foremost, it is important to know that proteins stimulate and promote the growth of lean muscle mass. Recovery shakes and protein bars are often associated with sports and muscle growth. However, even if you do not engage in sports or if you are a sports enthusiast aiming to lose weight, protein bars are a valuable addition to your daily nutrition. Thanks to their satiating power, protein bars reduce your appetite and irresistible cravings for sweet snacks. They are especially useful when you are on the go and feel the urge to grab a snack or sweets at a gas station. In such cases, a protein bar serves as a healthy and better alternative.

Kristof: The bar is truly top-notch: nowhere else can you find 15 grams of whey isolate protein and 3 grams of leucine in a bar. The other 5 grams are soy proteins. This bar is a worthy substitute for 3 to 5 grams of leucine or half a serving of Pro Elite Recovery.

Of course, the preference still goes to Pro Elite Recovery: it’s faster, more powerful, and more noticeable. But if you don’t have recovery with you or if you want to increase your protein intake, this is really the bar. And affordable too!

“Plakt niet!”

“De gels (en bars) zijn wel iets duurder dan verschillende andere merken maar ze plakken niet en doen goed hun werk. Maar dankzij de hoeveelheidskorting krijg ik de beste prijs voor de beste producten vind ik. ”

“Voelbaar sneller herstel en opbouw.”

“De recuperatie na mijn trainingen is vele malen beter. Hierdoor heb voor het eerst in een marathon voorbereiding geen enkele last van spiermoeheid of stramme of overbelaste spieren en pezen. Mis wel een carboloader in het assortiment.”

FAQ

How much do I have to pay for shipping?
In Belgium, all orders over €35 are shipped for free. For orders below €35, the shipping cost is €3.99. For international shipping within the EU, the cost is €8 for orders below €40.
Can I track the delivery of my order?
We collaborate with bpost as our distribution partner. Once your parcel details are shared with bpost, you will receive an email with a track & trace code, allowing you to track your order.
What is your connection with Wout van Aert?
We collaborated extensively with Wout when he rode for various Belgian teams. Together with his former Sniper Team, we refined the composition of our bars and gels. Wout was particularly involved in formulating the Pro-Elite Recovery Shake. His contribution ensured that you won't retain moisture despite all the proteins, minerals, and vitamins – a crucial feature in a recovery shake for sports performance. Thanks to the shake, all harmful substances, such as lactic acid, are eliminated.
What is a neutral pH?
All Neapharma products are pH-neutral. Without flavorings and acids that affect the pH, everything is absorbed more quickly and effectively, resulting in maximum outcomes without burdening the stomach and intestines. Additionally, pH-neutral products are gentler on your tooth enamel. Do you have a strong stomach and this is not important to you? A neutral pH also guarantees faster and complete absorption of nutrients. So, a neutral pH is not only good for your stomach, intestines, and teeth. It also enhances performance!
How can I build endurance after a workout?
Of course, various factors play a role in this. Duration, intensity, sequence, ... but nutrition and recovery also play a crucial role:
  • Building endurance starts during the training; drink enough: a dehydrated body can convert up to 25% less endurance building from a workout.
  • Afterward: Everything is proportional: short workouts versus long workouts. For short workouts, effective endurance building is possible. Then we use Pro Leucine: focus on muscle recovery and building. For long workouts, we aim for complete recovery with Pro Elite Recovery. You can find more information and details on the detail page.
How to get a personalised Fuel plan
At Neapharma, we combine our superior sports nutrition with our own free Fuel Plan App. Utilize the same tools as the professionals, thanks to coach & Performance Manager Kristof De Kegel. The app generates a personalized nutrition plan in seconds. The nutrition plan tells you hour by hour and kilometer by kilometer what you should eat and drink, entirely tailored to yourself and your goals. Thus, your nutrition plan will look entirely different when you go for a training ride or attempt to break a personal best. This app is also suitable for competitive cyclists.
"What is the 6-carbohydrate strategy?
The 6-carbohydrate strategy is the latest insight from top coach and Performance Manager at the cycling team Alpecin Deceuninck, Kristof De Kegel. He researched which carbohydrates are best used by athletes and what the ratio of these different energy sources is in relation to endurance and strength. He developed a strategy that, when you combine the right sources of carbohydrates at the right time, you can process up to 35% more energy. The key here is alternating between 6 different carbohydrates in the right proportion. Therefore, all Neapharma products have been adjusted since 2023, making us the only brand in the world where this strategy works. To simplify these calculations, Neapharma has created the Fuel Plan App, where your personalized nutrition plan is generated.
What is the importance of an amino acid for athletes?
"Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and proteins play a crucial role in numerous physiological processes in the body. For athletes, amino acids are particularly important due to their diverse functions that contribute to muscle building, recovery, and overall performance. Here are some functions of amino acids for athletes:"
  1. Muscle Building and Recovery: Amino acids are essential for protein synthesis, which, in turn, is crucial for muscle building and recovery. Particularly, the so-called 'essential amino acids' cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained from diet. They play a key role in repairing and building muscle tissue after intense physical exertion.
  2. Energy Production: Amino acids can, under certain conditions, be converted into energy. This can be particularly relevant during prolonged or intense workouts when the glycogen stores in the muscles become depleted.
  3. Immune System Support: Intensive physical activity can temporarily weaken the immune system. Some amino acids, such as glutamine, are involved in supporting the immune system, which can help reduce the risk of infections and illnesses.
What is the difference between Leucine and a Recovery shake?
Leucine helps to recover your muscles and build your endurance during small, non-intensive efforts. A recovery shake is designed for recovery after longer, more intensive exertion.
Who is co-founder Kristof De Kegel?
Kristof De Kegel, the Head of Performance at the renowned cycling team Alpecin-Deceuninck and the women's team Fenix-Deceuninck, is also the passionate exercise physiologist behind the innovative Neapharma products. Among the list of athletes are Mathieu van Der Poel, Wout Van Aert, Puck Pieterse, and Stijn De Volder. Together with sports dietitian Kjell De Potter, Kristof consistently strives for the ultimate support of athletes through the development and testing of cutting-edge supplements and their application. Kristof and Kjell are also the developers of the Free Fuel Plan App, where you can create your own sports nutrition plan by combining 6 carbohydrates with each other.
Did you collaborated with Cyclist Mathieu Van der Poel
We collaborated during the period when Mathieu discovered his strength on the road. Mathieu, three-time world champion Sanne Cant, and the entire Corendon team extensively used and contributed to the further development of our products. During that time, we found that using the Pro-Elite Recovery for an extended period also leads to increased strength and wattage, thanks to the thorough recovery that follows the shake. We maintain a close connection with this team, as Kristof De Kegel, co-owner of Neapharma, also serves as the performance manager for the Alpecin-Fenix cycling team.
Is Neapharma suitable for crossfitters?

In short: yes

"Our products are specially developed to optimally support endurance efforts in any sport. Based on the unique demands of crossfit, our Pro-Leucine and Pro-Elite Recovery shake, alongside our drinks and bars for short-term and long-term energy needs, and our gels for short-term energy requirements, can be a particular aid to get the most out of your workouts. They ensure maximum (re)building of your muscles and prepare you optimally for your next strength effort. We strongly recommend leucine instead of creatine because the latter can only be used for 3 to 4 weeks before losing its effectiveness. Leucine, on the other hand, improves your overall fitness even with prolonged use (beyond 3 weeks). Additionally, Leucine is healthier and more effective in the long term for muscle building and recovery."
How fast do you deliver the package?
All orders placed before 5 PM will be delivered the next day. We collaborate with bpost as our distribution partner. Once your parcel details are shared with bpost, you will receive an email with a track & trace code, allowing you to track your order. Please note that orders for the Netherlands, Germany, and France may be delivered one day later.
What is Pro Leucine? is it related to BCAAs ?

Indeed, the Pro Leucine has a similar effect to BCAAs. BCAAs, in fact, are a blend of Leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Full Explanation

Pro-Leucine does indeed have a similar effect to BCAAs. The latter are a mixture of leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Leucine is just one of the three BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids), but it is the most potent among them (leucine, isoleucine, and valine). It contributes to significant muscle strength, stimulates protein synthesis, and is essential for building, preserving, and repairing weakened or damaged muscles. Additionally, both leucine and isoleucine assist your body in muscle building and recovery after exertion. Therefore, it is advisable to invest in a supplement with pure leucine if you want to enhance recovery and muscle growth. Furthermore, leucine also promotes increased strength, which is not the case for isoleucine and valine. Leucine is most effective when taken in its pure form.
