Product Summary

TORQ’s 3:1 SNAQ Breakfasts have been developed alongside our long-standing Performance Nutrition range. Formulated at the same 3:1 Carbohydrate:Protein ratio as the TORQ Recovery Drink, our 3:1 SNAQ Breakfasts and Meals offer a comprehensive, standardised approach to pre or post-exercise nutrition and can be used in conjunction with, or independent of our recovery drink. Each 3:1 SNAQ Breakfast provides 25 grams of high quality protein with all the essential amino acids responsible for muscular remodelling and cellular adaptation in the hours after exercise, along with a generous supply of carbohydrate, promoting the replenishment of liver and muscle glycogen enabling you to perform optimally, day on day.

Available in three tasty varieties, Natural RaisinCinnamon & Raisin and Banana & Mango flavours, supplied in convenient individual single-use pouches.

Product Usage

Our 3:1 SNAQ Breakfasts can be enjoyed at any time of day either before or following a training session. Simply add contents of the pack to 150ml of cold or boiling water and stir. Your SNAQ Breakfast is now ready to eat – hot or cold, it’s your choice.

For optimal benefits during periods of high exercise load, use this 3:1 SNAQ Breakfast in conjunction with TORQ Recovery Drink. Consume recovery drink within 15 minutes of exercise completion and follow up with your 3:1 SNAQ Breakfast or 3:1 SNAQ Meal an hour later. During periods of less demanding exercise, consume your 3:1 SNAQ Breakfast as soon as possible after exercise as an alternative to a recovery drink.

Technical Information

The body has a very limited amount of endogenous carbohydrate, stored in the muscle and liver. In total these carbohydrate stores equate to around 5% of the body’s total energy stores, however carbohydrate is the preferred fuel source and during exercise can equate to over 50% (or more) of total energy expended, depending on the intensity and duration of the exercise. These limited stores, combined with a limited capacity to absorb and use carbohydrate during exercise can result in them becoming almost completely depleted during an intense endurance training session or competition.

Recovery from exercise is essential to the training process. Allowing for adequate recovery time ensures you arrive at the next training session in an optimal physiological state to perform. The time taken to recover can also be manipulated by good nutritional strategies. Research has concluded that when muscle glycogen is fully resynthesised post exercise, time to exhaustion (how long you can sustain exercise for) is significantly improved. Ensuring carbohydrate is fully replenished post exercise becomes of paramount importance during periods of high training loads or when exercising across multiple days.

Consuming rich, lean sources of carbohydrates and proteins can promote the replenishment of muscle glycogen (the body’s store of carbohydrate) and enhance training adaptation by ensuing there is sufficient availability of free circulating proteins required for muscular and cellular repair and reconstruction by stimulating muscle protein synthesis factors. Our 3:1 SNAQ Breakfast also contains 25g of premium quality vegetarian protein with an extensive amino acid range.

The extremely low fat content of these breakfasts ensures that both carbohydrate and protein are delivered quickly and efficiently to the blood, optimising the supply of ‘useful’ calories.

Immediately after heavy exercise, we would always recommend the consumption of TORQ Recovery Drink, due to the rapid absorption of TORQ’s multi-transportable carbohydrates found within TORQ Recovery and other nutrients unique to the product like Ribose and Glutamine. However, in the hours following exercise it is important that you continue the recovery process by consuming nutritious, balanced foods and our 3:1 SNAQ Breakfasts and 3:1 SNAQ Meals provide an exceptionally effective method of ensuring the optimum quality and quantity of nutrients consumed. During lower exercise loads, our 3:1 SNAQ Breakfasts work extremely effectively as a recovery intervention in their own right if consumed swiftly after exercise, negating the need for a recovery drink altogether.

Real Food

We take our ingredient choices very seriously here at TORQ and there is no doubt that the SNAQ Breakfasts and SNAQ Meals we have created are ‘real food’. We have always held the firm philosophy that whilst dietary performance is our priority, we will always forge a natural path, which is why we have Soil Association Organic and Fairtrade Foundation approval on many of our products. Our breakfasts have been developed using oats, rice crisps and dried fruit to complement the technical whey protein crisps, which provide a high proportion of the protein calories.

Our SNAQ Breakfasts are deliberately low in fat to facilitate the rapid absorption of useful calories. They can be consumed on their own without accompaniment and will be highly functional, but we would always encourage adding some fresh fruit if consuming one of our breakfasts post-exercise, because the fibre and micronutrients contained within these fresh foods are essential for a healthy balanced diet.

As the SNAQ range develops, we intend to offer greater variety as well as customised dietary plans through our consultancy to optimise nutritional practices during training and competition, along with programs to facilitate body fat loss whilst at the same time developing muscular integrity and power. These plans won’t feature TORQ products exclusively of course, they will include recipes using other regular healthy foods too. We’re not looking to take over the world, we just know how beneficial a solid understanding of the timing and composition of one’s meals will affect physical performance and the TORQ SNAQ range has been developed with this firmly in mind.

A number of TORQ’s Performance Products are certified Organic or Fairtrade and we will be offering similar options in the future within our SNAQ range.

Travel

A primary motivation for establishing the SNAQ range at TORQ has been to fulfil the needs of serious World Class competitive athletes who travel the globe to compete at the highest level. The SNAQ range provides an ever-expanding range of foods with standardised nutritional profiles to remove the guesswork many of these athletes have to contend with every time they travel.

This principle translates to any physically active person travelling either within the UK or globally to take part in events. Being able to create healthy optimised meals easily with full knowledge of the nutritional profile, where the only external ingredient required is a source of fresh water has huge value.
