Science

Ramadan Energy Bar is made of a unique, proprietary blend of complex and simple carbohydrates and soy protein, that is specifically designed to maintain blood sugar over many hours. It’s naturally flavoured and wheat free, with just the right balance of great taste and healthy nutrition. It is the perfect energy snack to supplement your suhoor!

For those interested in some of the science behind the amazing Ramadan Energy Bar, below are some key findings from prior studies of the bar and its ingredients:

Our proprietary blend of ingredients allows for the slow release of sugar over many hours [1].

Our blend is useful in preventing low blood sugar due to fasting [2].

Our proprietary blend is slowly absorbed by the body so it can provide a continuous source of energy for 6-9 hours [3].

In subjects with diabetes, the blend was found to maintain blood sugar for 9-10 hours after eating it [4].

Studies show, significantly less subjects experienced low blood sugar with a snack like ours [5].

A snack bar containing our blend can decrease night time and morning low blood sugar in subjects with diabetes [6].
