Dried grapes as good as energy bars

Udupi Today Media network


London, 27 July 2012: Raisins can help power the body when exercising just as well as expensive sports nutrient bars, a study suggests.


The dried grapes give athletes all they need during vigorous exercise, the Daily Mail reported quoting a study by researchers at the University of California-Davis.


The research team studied people running three miles, giving them either raisins, supplement bars or simply water.


Runners who ate raisins or bars ran the distance a minute faster on average than those who had only water. The results are published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
