The FLASH 5 Nutritional Concept
is not a FAD DIET. It doesn’t sound too good to be true. The rationale and
the resulting products are not “hard to swallow”. The FLASH 5 Concept is
rooted in sports nutritional science, food technology, and the gourmet
food arts. Our trademark “FLASH 5” originated from our
vision and desire to create the Perfect Energy Food. We all remember the
4 food groups, right? Well when we sat down to brainstorm about our
Perfect Energy Food, we liked the idea of a smart balance of all the
essentials in order to achieve optimum results. What we arrived at was a
strategic combination of 5 key elements that, in our minds, would make up
an ideal source of food energy. We named that source FLASH 5.
Carbohydrates Carbohydrates are the most
important source of energy for your body and the primary source of fuel
for your brain. FLASH 5 contains a combination of simple as well as
complex carbohydrates derived from natural sources including fruit solids,
juices, and grains. The balance between simple and complex carbs is
critical to produce the quick as well as the sustained energy
levels that athletes strive for during training and competition. Much of
the collective knowledge to date on this subject has come from medical
research associated with diabetes. We generally concur with the findings
that come out of this research. We feel that the information gained is
also directly applicable to healthy-bodied athletes and non-athletes
alike. Blood sugar levels must be optimized and stable for peak
performance at work and at play. The carbohydrate sources in FLASH 5 bars
also contribute dietary fiber, which provides numerous overall
An adequate supply of high
quality protein is needed for strength, muscle repair, and endurance.
Sports nutrition has taught us that there is an optimum level of protein
intake associated with athletic activity and healthy eating. Some argue
that huge amounts of protein will make all of our dreams come true. We
disagree with this (and really any) extreme approach. It has not been
easy, but through rigorous athletic trials, we have achieved a nutritional
ratio for protein, carbs, and fats that we feel is right on the money.
Fats The right kind of fats
in the right quantities are essential for proper nutrition and optimum
performance in athletic and everyday activities. The body relies on fats
in order to metabolize proteins and carbohydrates effectively. Our Classic
FLASH 5 bars are lightly dipped in Real, Premium Milk Chocolate,
which consists of all-natural, readily digestible cocoa butter. We do not
use low grade, hydrogenated fats to cheapen the cost of the finished
product. And let’s not forget the real milk chocolate’s most important
job…it adds to the delicious taste experience!
Minerals FLASH 5
bars are enriched with vitamins, minerals, and herbs to meet and
exceed government standards for Nutritional Supplements. In addition to 22
vitamins and minerals, FLASH 5 bars also contain Lycopene, Lutein, Korean
Ginseng and Ginkgo Biloba.
TASTE Unlike some of our competitors’
products, FLASH 5 bars taste like delicious, real food.
WHY?…Because we make them using delicious premium quality, real food
ingredients. Even if you are not interested in using FLASH 5
for the fitness, energy, and nutritional aspects, you may want them for
their taste alone. You can feel free to enjoy a guilt-free, nutritious,
and satisfying snack anytime. We have to be serious about your taste
experience. No matter how good the working properties of our energy
products are, we know that the taste experience must also be great in
order to keep you coming back for more!
