The OTE Sports Bar Range: Explained

Our bar ranges are some of our best selling products, but do you know the difference between Anytime, Duo and Protein; and when to use them?

Let us help clear things up and point you in the direction of which might be the best bar for you.

Duo Bar

For: BEFORE & DURING exercise

We would label this as our ‘Performance Bar’. This bar has been developed based on the World Tour cycling teams’ frequent use of ‘rice cakes’ during racing. We wanted to take this concept and develop a great tasting rice based bar that delivers everything needed to help perform at the highest level. They have also recently been reformulated to be GLUTEN FREE.

The Duo Bar is split into two pieces, each piece delivering 20g of carbohydrates. This helps you calculate just how much food you are taking on board. Its high carbohydrate content means this bar is perfect for BEFORE or DURING training, supplying you with the energy needed to keep exercising at a higher intensity for around 45-60 minutes. The Duo Bars can be used as an alternative or along side our Energy Gels and Energy Drinks.

The Duo Bars are low in fat, supply you with 7g of protein and are easy to consume whilst exercising.

Anytime Bar

For: BEFORE & DURING exercise

Our Anytime Bars are a 100% natural flapjack designed to be used around your training or just as a healthier snack option. These great tasting bars are high in carbohydrate meaning they will give you an energy boost before or during a training session; that normal food alternative to energy drinks and energy gels.

The Anytime Bar is also a great snack idea for anyone with a busy lifestyle who is constantly on the go. Having an Anytime Bar as a mid afternoon snack can help set you up nicely for an evening training session. The Anytime Bars contain 36g of carbohydrates enough energy for around 30-45 minutes exercise at a moderate to high intensity.

For: DURING & AFTER exercise

We also now have two flavours of our Anytime Plant Based Protein Bars! They are high in protein (11g per 55g bar), easily digested and contain 26g of Carbohydrate. Like all our Anytime Bars they are nut and gluten free as well as suitable for Vegetarians.

Protein Bar

For: AFTER exercise

The OTE Protein Bar has been developed to provide a quality portion of protein in a great tasting and easy to eat bar.

Our 62g protein bar provides 2og of high-quality protein. The best time to consume the bar is within 30 minutes of finishing exercise as this is the optimal time to kick start the body’s recovery process. Alternatively the protein bar is a great snack to be used to help increase daily protein intake. Due to its high protein content it is satiating, which means it helps keep you feeling fuller for longer.
