The soft texture has been specifically designed to avoid the 'chewy' nature of so many sports bars. These tasty flapjacks can be consumed whilst still on the move, keeping you going longer, keeping you charging longer.
Consumption: During activity we are advised that most people will metabolise 300-400 calories per hour, so one flapjack per hour could replace 3 or 4 sports gels.
Whilst the soft texture means you can eat them on the move (with no need to down water at the same time, or to manically blow seeds out your nose as you breathe) we do recommend consuming at a point where you breathing is measured - if you're panting the crumbling seeds will get in the way.
Everyone trains differently and for important events we recommend you practice your nutrition strategy every bit as much as you practice your sport!
For a trail marathon, we might eat a flapjack 90 to 30 minutes before the start. If you are going for a run after work you might eat a flapjack in the late afternoon before you go training.
