HIGH5 have been a long standing brand within the sports and performance market. They’ve been providing great sports nutrition to everyone from endurance cyclists to triathletes for over 20 years, using great quality ingredients and all backed up with scientific and real world data.
The latest product to come from HIGH5 is the new ‘Protein Snack’ bar, containing a blend of Brazil Nuts, Goji Berries and Chia Seeds (amongst other things) which provides a decent 12g of protein. Providing 22g of carbs, they’re actually a really good ‘allrounder’ which can be used both on and off the bike. We’ve been happily munching on these in the office as a great healthy snack between meals (great with a cup of tea!), but also taken them out on longer rides and found that they provide more of a satisfying ‘meal’ than pure energy bars. The protein content also means that they could potentially be used to help recovery after a training session in a pinch, although you’d be much better off having a specific recovery product like their protein bar or a shake.
