Legend has it that Panforte was carried by the Legions to keep them fuelled on the Crusades.
Veloforte bars take inspiration from this Tuscan speciality. The recipe is a fiercely guarded secret, but the result is tasty, natural, nutritious and digestible "real food" bars that keep you going all day during endurance-based activities and help with recovery too. Think long rides, ultra events, and days out on the hill, 2 hours stints on an exposed, windy belay...
Veloforte bars are available in the following flavours. They're all naturally gluten, dairy, egg, additive, and preservative free:
Classico: citrus, fruit, nuts, and spices – designed to keep you going all day.
Ciocco: chewy dates, crunchy almond, and enriching cocoa – brilliant for performance and recovery
Di Bosco: Red berries, almonds, pistachio, and rosemary – superb and powerful endurance nutrition
Avanti: Mmmm – juicy dates, crunchy pecans, almonds and sea salt in a satisfyingly salted bar for staying fuelled and replenished.
Pronto: figs, crunchy almonds & pistachios, zingy ginger, lemon, Guarana and Matcha tea, for alertness, concentration, and caffeine goodness (the kind that keeps us going at AKHQ).
Forza: apricots, orange juice, agave nectar, cane sugar and honey: carbohydrates that you can get at rapidly to help you to restore those achy muscles.
