INTENSITY BAR: The revolutionary bar for races & intense sessions.

Perfectly prepared for the intensive training phase

The idea behind the INTENSITY BAR

Our MoN sports nutrition specialist Robert Gorgos has developed the INTENSITY BAR upon request of the professionals from BORA – hansgrohe. 

The goal was to create a bar that provides a lot of energy whilst being extremely well tolerated – which is essential, especially for races and intensive training sessions.

What makes this little powerhouse special? In this blog we introduce the INTENSITY BAR in more detail!

What makes the INTENSITY BAR so special

A special feature is the cluster dextrin used, which has earned the reputation as the as the “new superstar among carbohydrates”.

Due to the different carbohydrate sources – in addition to cluster dextrin, glucose-fructose has been added in an optimal 2:1 ratio – energy can be provided quickly, but just as continuously. So the little bar is not only effective immediately, but also in the longer term!

This makes the INTENSITY BAR the perfect component of high-energy competition fueling. In addition, the exceptionally well-tolerated energy bar is suitable for intensive training sessions as an alternative solid food.

Moreover, the bar is almost fat-free. It contains no gluten, lactose or other food allergens.

The latest MoN product is, of course, free of artificial additives and preservatives. Instead, it provides many valuable vitamins, antioxidants and minerals thanks to the real apricot ingredient, which also gives the bar a natural fruity taste.

Application example

The INTENSITY BAR can be used as an alternative, solid source of energy during intense training or competition. The professionals from BORA – hansgrohe use the bar, among other things, as part of their nutrition strategy during the Tour de France.

Below is an example of how the energy bar can be used during a race. Here we are talking about an “easy stage” during the tour:
