REAL ATHLETES. REAL FEEDBACK.

IRONMAN athletes know what they need: next-level nutrition and slow-burn energy.

I always try to fuel with real food, gels upset my stomach. Quantum tastes nice, they're made with real food & the caffeine keeps me going.

- Claire IRONMAN Athlete

I love the long-lasting energy for training, plus great taste & texture!

- Angie IRONMAN Athlete & Sports Dietitian

Very tasty, and they provide that added energy I need during long training sessions. They’re compact, too, great when you’re on the go.

- Chris IRONMAN Athlete

I’ll eat a bar about 30 minutes before finishing the bike segment, and wow does it recharge my energy for that run off the bike!

- Christina IRONMAN Athlete

I carry these with me on the bike, in my training bag, on my runs, everywhere! I can't recommend them enough!

- Kristen Triathlete

These energy bars are my GO TO while I train for the IRONMAN World Championships!

- Leah IRONMAN Athlete

FAQS FOR IRONMAN ATHLETES

Don’t see what you are looking for? Contact us.
  • How often should I eat one during training, or a race?

    Fueling frequency is personalized; guidelines from Ironman coaches recommend 250-400 calories per hour, depending on exercise intensity, duration, and your overall mix of hydration and solid fuel intake.

    Quantum Energy Squares provide approximately 200 calories each, depending on the flavor, and contain a slow-burning blend of carbohydrate, “good” fats, plant-based proteins and caffeine from organic green coffee (100mg).

    Quantum is served on-course at all IRONMAN U.S. events. To establish your individual fueling needs for racing, best practice is to experiment in training with fuel quantities and frequency to create an intake schedule which works best for you. Get started with one bar 30-60 minutes before your next training workout, incorporate another during your sessions (90 minutes into your run, bike or swim practice, for example) and fine tune your fueling plan for race day.

  • Is caffeine beneficial for a training or racing fuel source?

    Yes. Athletes who consume caffeine in their healthy fueling regimen benefit from increased muscular work capacity, enhanced focus, and reduction of pain sensation*.

    Plus, studies have shown that natural caffeine is rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, polyphenols, and it can even help speed recovery when consumed post-exercise.

    *Learn more in the White Paper about Quantum in the press section.

  • How do these provide caffeine energy while avoiding stomach jitters?

    Quantum’s stomach-friendly blend of organic green coffee and macros was developed by a sports dietitian and a food scientist, so athletes can benefit from the energy natural caffeine provides, while avoiding the jitters some experience drinking coffee by itself without essential nutrients.

    Our balanced macros (a nourishing energy mix of complex carbs, “good” fats and plant-based proteins) combined with natural caffeine is specially formulated to be easy on the stomach—taking the edge off caffeine, while giving you the performance edge you need for a long day on-course.

    And, we only use the healthiest form of natural caffeine, organic green coffee. Coffee is a plant, and as we all know, eating uncooked plant-based foods is beneficial for retaining nutritive value. The organic green coffee infusion in Quantum Energy Squares brings antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and additional qualities which may be adversely affected by roasting.

  • How far in advance of a race should I train with these?

    This is the exclusive on-course bar served at all U.S. IRONMAN events, so as a best practice, get started training with Quantum now (months before race day if possible). Normalizing your digestion with the on-course fuel, as far ahead of time as possible, helps to eliminate variables and prepares you for a great triathlon performance and experience on race day.

  • Which Quantum Energy Squares are served on-course at IRONMAN?

    Dark Chocolate Pink Himalayan Salt, Coconut Almond Chocolate Chip and Caffe Mocha Almond Chip will be served on-course at IRONMAN N. America events.

  • What does Slow-Burn Energy mean, why is it important?

    Caffeine alone, sugary drinks or gels, consumed without essential nutrients from food, can lead to an energy spike, followed by a crash. Watch feed stations during a triathlon, and you’ll see many who come into the feed zone depleted or panicked, because they fueled with products which were metabolized too quickly, and they’re desperate to replenish energy.

    Fast-burning glycogen replacement fuels require more frequent intake, which is hard to time right during an endurance race—and this leads to a rollercoaster of energy ups and downs. A challenging way to enjoy the day, or to perform at your best.

    Quantum provides a nutritious blend of clean macros from seeds, fruits and nuts, infused with natural caffeine, designed to deliver energy gradually—with no spike or crash. This is slow-burn energy, fuel to go the distance.

  • Why do I need “good fats” and proteins in training and racing fuel?

    Quantum’s “good” fats from nuts and seeds provide essential fatty acids needed by active muscles to provide the fuel (ATP) required to sustain muscle contractions*.

    They are designed to work in combination with muscle-nourishing plant-based proteins to slow the entry of caffeine into the bloodstream and extend the benefits on mental and physical performance. Plant proteins contain essential amino acids to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. (Plus, we specifically use easily digestible dairy-free protein from pea and pumpkin seeds, no soy or whey which can cause stomach upset.)

    *Learn more in the White Paper about Quantum in the press section.

  • Can’t I just use gels and glycogen replacements instead of these bars?

    Glycogen replacement fuels such as gels contain a concentrated blend of sugars, most often maltodextrin and fructose, and while they can replace quickly-metabolized glycogen stores, they may cause an upset stomach (in addition to requiring frequent fueling).

    Mis-timing fueling while burning through short-term fuel sources can lead to energy crashes, sudden fatigue and loss of energy (the dreaded “bonking”), caused by the depletion of glycogen stores in the liver and muscles.

    Quantum’s blend of natural, easily-digestible complex and simple carbs, plant-based proteins, “good” fats, and natural caffeine from organic green coffee is designed to deliver slow-burn energy, so you can keep energy levels up and spread fueling over a longer time period.

  • How much caffeine can I consume?

    Per the IRONMAN Nutrition & Hydration Guidelines: “For many individuals, as little as 75 to 100 milligrams of caffeine can provide a positive effect on performance. Higher amounts of caffeine (up to 200 mg per single dose) are considered safe and may provide additional performance benefits.”

    Coaches recommend testing your fueling levels in training, and if you have questions about medical conditions and caffeine, consult your physician. For reference on caffeine content, energy drinks can contain 80-250mg+, a caffe latte can contain 150-225mg, and a Quantum Energy Square contains 100mg.
