|Pre made Sports Nutrition Meals
Pre made sports nutrition meals are essentially meal replacement products. Meal replacement products (MRPs) are either pre-packaged powdered drink mixes or edible bars. Both are consumed in the place of a whole-food meal. Generally MRPs are high in protein, low in fat, have a low to moderate amount of carbohydrates, and contain a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
The majority of MRPs use whey protein, calcium caseinate or micellar casein, soy protein, and egg albumin as the protein source. Carbohydrates are typically derived from maltodextrin, oat fiber, brown rice, or wheat flour. Some also contain flax oil powder as a source of essential fatty acids.
The MRPs can also contain other ingredients that are deemed beneficial to bodybuilders. These can include creatine monohydrate, glutamine peptides, L-glutamine, calcium alpha-ketoglutarate, additional amino acids, lactoferrin, conjugated linoleic acid, and medium chain triglycerides amongst others.
Meal replacement powder sports supplements are powdered blend of protein, carbohydrates, essential fats/oils, vitamins and minerals and fibre. Meal replacement powders have been used by athletes since the world famous MetRX hit the scene.
Endurance sport requires sustained intense power output over relatively long periods of time. Trainings are often long and intense and require a high-calorie diet. Many athletes find it difficult to consume the vast amounts of food necessary to meet their energy needs. This has made pre made sports nutrition meals popular. A few examples of pre made sports meal are included below.
Jelly Belly Sports Beans (a jelly bean with sodium), Clif Shot Bloks (a soft gummy candy in a block), Sharkies (organic fruit chew) and SPIZ (“liquid food”).
