Most people don’t know that energy bars were originally circulated in the 1960s as space food for astronauts to carry in their helmets. They served the purpose of providing quick energy and a relatively balanced diet during missions. It wasn’t long, however, until energy bars were heavily commercialised and repackaged for athletes and regular consumers. At this point in time, the bars were considered on par with an energy drink for nutrients minus the caffeine.
Unfortunately, many companies took advantage of the healthy brand image that energy bars maintained and began adding even more sweeteners to the already sugar loaded product. Look out for brands that carry high sucrose or fructose such as corn syrup. Finding a brand with plenty of nuts or seeds for good natural fats, protein and fibres is key to finding an energy bar that will suit your lifestyle.
At Kuranda, we understand that in this busy society people are time poor and need a full, fresh energy hit that contains no unwanted surprises.
