Bars and Cookies are Essential for Outdoor Missions

During outdoor missions, food plays a secondary role as it often needs to be quick, with no opportunity to prepare a larger meal. Bars and cookies serve well for snacks on the go.

Quick Meals Provide Energy and Satisfy Hunger

Bars and cookies should always be carried on outdoor activities. Whether engaging in outdoor sports, on a mission, or during exercises in the field, there's often little to no time for meals. Bars and cookies consumed during the march are a great alternative. However, avoid heavily sugary cookies from the supermarket. Individually wrapped bars containing muesli or cereals provide many nutrients and are excellent for a quick meal. They can be conveniently carried in a backpack and usually do not contain chocolate that could melt on warm days.

Cereals Should Always Be Part of Your Rations

Do not embark on any outdoor activity without proper rations. Breaks serving as substantial snacks are necessary to keep the body fit. However, these breaks cannot always be taken every few hours. ASMC offers various snacks that are nutritious and not excessively sugary, satisfying hunger between meals. The snacks are practical to carry due to their individual packaging and can be easily consumed on the march, being handy and well-portioned. Bars and cookies should be included in rations, as well as an adequate supply of beverages, as those who become hungry or thirsty on the way are no longer so efficient.

Expert Tip:

The Right Storage for Bars and Cookies

When packing, ensure that cookies don't end up just as crumbs. Soft bars can be easily squashed, and even hard variants can break and become crumbs. To prevent this, store them in separate compartments of your equipment and, if necessary, protect them on all sides with cardboard or other lightweight but hard objects. When not on tour, the general recommendation for food applies: store them dry and cool and avoid exposing them to light.

Questions: Bars and Cookies

Here, no general rule can be established, as it is especially a different application. The normal energy requirements of an adult differ by sex. For women (for example, 35-year-old women), the average daily rate in non-physical activity is estimated at about 2,000 kcal. For a 40-year-old man, on the other hand, it is estimated at about 2,500 kcal in the non-physical state, which is a major part of the basic energy needs that everyone has. If there is an intense physical effort, as is typical with outdoor activities (long walks, etc.), then the total requirement or consumption is increased by another large factor of about 1.6, which would lead to about 4,000 Kilo-Calories for the man. With continuous walking under varying temperature conditions and gradients, however, it is possible to consume 4,500 to 5,000 Kilo-Calories. These guidelines must be included in the supply planning before the trip.

For example, our 50 g product "Orifo Cranberry Cereal Bar" supplies approximately 200 kcal or 850 kJ. It contains 2 grams of protein, 36 grams of carbohydrates, and 5.4 grams of fat. Of course, it is not advisable to rely solely on bars and cookies for nutrition.
