A ride can change in an instant. If you've mountain biked for long you've likely experienced this at least once. This past weekend, Jason Irwin and I encountered one of these instances. Thankfully, Enduro Bites came to the rescue, but now how you’d likely expect.
Pushing our bodies to their limits also helps us become more aware of foods that just don’t sit well with us. And, sometimes, doing so can make us aware of or even induce, sensitivities to certain foods. Ever notice that you have trouble tolerating certain foods, or beverages, after a hard workout or race? Or worse yet, during a race? This is why we avoid using ingredients that contain common allergens in Enduro Bites.
When creating Enduro Bites, I experimented with practically every carbohydrate source I could find, looking to make an appetizing bar without spiking glucose levels or leading to that inevitable “rot gut”. I eventually settled on honey as one of our carbohydrate sources, and you’ll see it on every Enduro Bites' ingredient list. Learn why in today's post.
