Energy Marzipan Sport Bar
The Etixx Energy Marzipan is a high-quality marzipan bar enriched with magnesium and containing 31g carbohydrates per bar.
- With carbohydrates (62%) for a prolonged energy supply during
- Can be used as a snack rich in carbohydrates.
- High quality marzipan (40% almonds)
- Contains magnesium, which contributes to a normal yielding metabolismand the reduction of fatigue
- With 10% more fat compared to Etixx Energy Sport bar, ideal during the first part of long-term, low-intensity exercise.
The amount of available carbohydrates is a performance-determining factor for endurance and high-intensity intermittent exercise (alternating exercise and short breaks). That is why it is important to complement carbohydrates during this type of exercise. They make sure that the blood glucose level is maintained during the exercise and complement the muscle glycogen.
These energy bars are suitable for both before and during the exercise. Before the exercise the athlete's body must contain the highest possible level of carbohydrates. This is achieved by eating food rich in carbohydrates the days before the competition or heavy training (= carbo-loading) and by eating a carbohydrate-rich meal 1.5 to 4h before the competition. The Etixx Energy bars can be eaten as a snack the days before the competition and during or shortly after the pre-competition meal.
If no carbohydrates would be taken during long-term efforts, muscle glycogen stores would be depleted after ~90min. How many carbohydrates should I take during exercise?
- Exercises < 1h(15): not necessary to consume carbohydrates during exercise .
- Exercises 1-2h: 30g carbohydrates per hour
- Exercises 2-3h: 60g carbohydrates per hour
- Exercises >2.5-3h: up to 90g carbohydrates per hour

WHO can benefit from the Energy Marzipan Sport Bar?
CATEGORY (POWER SPORTS) – ENDURANCE SPORTS – INTERMITTENT SPORTS
Energy bars provide long-lasting energy supplies during exercise and are therefore excellent for intake during competitions of endurance athletes (marathon runners, triathletes, cyclists, long-distance swimmers, etc.) and team and racket athletes (football, basketball, tennis, etc.). Also for explosive athletes who have training sessions for several hours (e.g. sprinters, jumpers, throwers, weight lifters, etc.) and athletes who deliver medium-term efforts (runners, swimmers, kayakers, rowers, etc.) energy bars can be useful to keep up their energy reserves.
