Created by professional athletes and supported by science, Picky Bars utilize the ideal 4:1 recovery ratio. Studies have shown that a ratio of 4:1 carbohydrates to protein taken within 30 minutes of your workout is ideal for promoting recovery. A Picky Bar with a glass of water is the best way to make calories go toward your glycogen and muscles, rather than your fat stores. This makes you recover faster and feel better for your workout the next day. At 200 calories, they are great for recovery, a pre-exercise energy boost or as the perfect snack size between meals.
All Picky Bars are gluten and dairy-free, have balanced macro-nutrients (25% fat, 60% carbohydrate, 15% protein) for hunger control and happy digestion and select carbohydrate sources that promote level blood sugar, sustained energy, and nutrient absorption. They also utilize whole foods that are geographically nearby when possible, minimize soy content (less than 1%) and provide a mixture of nuts and seeds for nutrient diversity.
