Running Nutrition: PowerBar Simple Fruit Energy Food


What if running nutrition was simple?

Well, it isn’t always simple, and part of that is because runners have varied nutritional needs and preferences. But if you’re looking for nutrition to fuel your run that consists of simple ingredients, made with real fruit and no artificial flavors or preservatives, Simple Fruit from PowerBar could be your simple solution.

Few Ingredients

The label on the back of each packet of Simple Fruit energy food has very few ingredients – and an added bonus is that they are all words you can pronounce.


Simple sugars found in many gels might cause a spike in energy and then a crash, but the maltodextrin in Simple Fruit provides a steady release of energy. Using Simple Fruit energy food for on-the-run energy provides you with a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend which helps to provide more energy than by just fueling with glucose alone.


You’ll find the consistency of Simple Fruit to be thinner than most gels, which can make it easier to get down.


It does taste like real fruit, with a little extra sweetness. If you have a sweet tooth, Simple Fruit will be right up your alley.

We carry three flavors: Apple Mixed Berry, Apple Orange Lemon, and Apple Pear Raspberry. Each pack comes with 100 calories of energy (the same as a standard gel), and even though the packs are a little larger than the traditional gel, it is still small enough to fit into most gel sized pockets.
