Press Reviews

TriRadar

One of the real feel-good content crusaders, Torq assure as much of their ingredients are organic and fairly traded as possible. Moreish flavours make them initially easy on you as well as the world, although the more fruity ones can be quite strong to handle if you’re hammering your racing or training. The high carb/sugar to minimal protein ratio means they hit your system pretty hard too, but that’s offset by the new smaller 45g size that means their gels and drinks all pack the same punch for easier energy strategising. They’re as cold tolerant as you’d hope from a UK product too, but being extra nice to farmers and furry friends inevitably comes at an extra cost per gram of product.

Verdict - Fast acting, moreish energy from responsible recipes, but strong taste and weak value. Performance 5/5, Value 2/5, Overall 4/5.

Triathlon Plus

On paper, Torq’s latest weapon in the sports nutrition war ticks all the boxes: over 33g of carbs per 45g bar; a mix of simple and complex carbs for instant and sustained energy; less than 1g of fat; and Ribose, a natural sugar which Torq claim hastens cellular recovery by providing the body with the material needed to directly produce ATP, which is in turn broken down into energy. In contrast to a lot of the gritty competition, the chewy, moist Torq bars, which are packed with fruit and oats, are easy to get down quickly. The bars have been remodelled to a smaller size so they now form part of Torq’s Fuelling System, delivering the same amount of carbs as one Torq gel or 500ml of Torq energy drink. All five flavours of the bar were delicious (with organic mango proving particularly popular), they sat well in the stomach and definitely provided a good energy boost. The fairtrade credentials, easy-open packet and decent value at £1.21 per bar are welcome too.

Verdict - Quality ingredients, great taste and plenty of energy make the Torq Bar a winner.

The incredibly moist Torq bar is based on a simple list of ingredients that includes oats, raisins, maltodextrin, fructose syrup, apricot and puffed rice. This makes for a low fat, high carb, easy-to-chew bar with very little aftertaste or stickiness. It also includes a small supplement of ribose (which aids cell and muscle tissue renewal), but at just 50mg per bar this probably won’t benefit performance that much. However, the vitamin and mineral mixture will provide 30-80% of RDA of 13 nutrients.

We tried the tangy apricot, which tasted lovely and is perfect for just before and after training. Other original flavours in the range include pineapple and ginger, raspberry and apple, and banana. If you find other bars taste a bit like sawdust or the flavours are a bit bland, then Torq is a very good alternative. Rating - 8

So good... Torq are a UK based company and manufacture all four flavours on these shores. The texture is definitely classic energy bar - a sticky, dense and very fruity flapjack - but the ingredients are 100 per cent natural, fairly traded and suitable for vegans. Saturated fat levels are very low at around 0.5 per cent and the bar also contains Torq's hidden secret weapon, ribose, which actively assists muscle recovery at a cellular level.

No good... The lowest energy per 100g of the bars on test.

The starch and sugars form oats and raisins is supplemented with maltodextrin and fructose syrup to give a concentrated dose of fast and slow release carbohydrate. The addition of ribose sugar is not to add to the carb content, but to supplement the body's own natural supply. However, well controlled research trials have not shown any clear evidence of any benefit from ribose supplementation. Verdict 7/10.
