When long breaks occur in food intake, as well as pre-workout, restorative nutrition and additional energy supply to the body during intense physical activity, athletes and many people in their daily life use foods that are similar in form of release and partially in function to traditional chocolate bars. According to their functional characteristics, such products are divided into three main groups - energy, high protein and grain bars. The main purpose of energy bars is to provide the human body with a source of additional energy, especially in situations where significant physical and mental endurance is required. The task of high protein sports bars is to provide the human body with building materials for the restoration of muscle tissues, which are actively damaged during intense physical exertion, as well as for the start of muscle tissue growth. Grain bars can help lower blood sugar levels, which can arise from consuming large amounts of fast carbohydrates in a daily diet, and improve the functioning of the digestive system. All these products additionally enrich the body with biologically active substances that are vital for athletes. The synergistic interaction of the functional ingredients in the composition accelerates the recovery of physical strength during and after fitness sessions. The ergogenic properties of the developed food product were confirmed by control tests on individuals engaged in fitness every day: a course intake of fitness bars for 30 days in an amount of 50 g / day after training contributed to an increase in the strength index, speed-strength endurance, and overall physical performance of the subjects. The use of fitness bars in the diet is an additional adaptogenic factor to optimize the effect of training sessions.
