Many of our non-cycling acquaintances seem to believe that all endurance sports are just forms of masochism. While we contend there are few things more pleasurable than turning the pedals, we do concede that the energy "food" we often choke down before and after a ride does lean toward torture. ProBar agrees, and cracking open a 12-Pack of Base Bars will convince you that the promise to create a "protein bar that resembles nature rather than a science experiment" is far more substantive than the goops, rubbery blocks, and beige powders that we've been subjected to for years. At the Base Bar's heart is a significant supply of easily-digestible plant protein -- 20 grams per serving, to be precise. This protein comes in part from the bars' inclusion of chia, which comprises protein, fiber, and antioxidants in high portions to keep you properly fueled and keep your GI tract on track between instances of high-intensity training. With yet more fiber and a burst of omega-3 fatty acids, flax seed also contributes by boosting your immune system, cellular health, and promoting weight loss to capitalize on the gains you're making. The Base Bars are non-GMO, certified organic, and gluten free. They also don't contain any mystery synthetic ingredients, because we like to keep things like yoga mats as part of the workout experience, not part of our diet.
