Nutrition bars and products like these that are sold over-the-counter provide a concentrated source of carbohydrate along with some fat and protein, to replace the stored carbohydrate in the liver and muscles. Stored carbohydrate is important to
physically active people because it can be used to provide energy for intense, all-out activity and prolonged endurance activity. The bars are popular because they are easy to carry, easy to eat, and quickly digested and absorbed.
