We use honey as the main sweetener in our products. Honey has the same glucose to fructose ratio of fruit, 1:1. If you can eat fruit without getting an upset stomach you should be able to eat Honey Stinger without any problems.
The energy in Honey Stinger comes from honey so you shouldn’t feel large fluctuations in energy if you eat any of our products as a snack.
Many Honey Stinger products can be used as a healthy snack alternative or meal replacements because we use honey as our main sweetener and energy source. The Energy Chews, Stinger Waffles, Energy Bars and Kids’ Waffles are great healthy snack alternatives. The 10G protein bars are a great meal replacement snack or after workout recovery bar.
All Honey Stinger products are made from natural ingredients so they are great snacks for children.
Honey Stinger Waffles have a best buy date of 12 months from date of manufacture and gels, bars (energy and 10g) and chews have a best by date of 18 months from date of manufacture. All of our products have a 'Best By Date' printed on the individual product packaging.
We use honey as the main sweetener in all our products. Honey is comprised of multiple simple sugars which show up on the nutrition facts of our products. Honey is comprised of glucose, fructose, maltose, trisaccharides, and sucrose. Your body can only utilize simple sugars for energy production and to keep you going. All complex carbohydrates need to be broken down into simple sugars to be used by your body.
While some vegans eat honey our products are not vegan because they contain honey which is produced by friendly bees.
The energy comes from the Carbs and the Honey. Honey is a natural sugar and lower on the “glycemic index.” The glycemic index of foods refers to how quickly and how high 'blood sugar' (glucose) increases in comparison to pure glucose. Honey is a mix of simple sugars, glucose & fructose (there are others but in smaller proportions). Sucrose is comprised of glucose and fructose joined together; which our bodies need to break apart before they can be used, which takes time. In honey the glucose & fructose molecules are not joined so they can be used straight away. Protein in the Energy Bars & 10G Bars is also a source of energy.
Sodium, potassium and magnesium are vital electrolytes that keep your muscles functioning while minimizing cramping associated with intense exercise.
