... As I just got the library and began studying nutrient metabolism where I left off, I find a chart of all carbohydrate types, their food sources and end products of digestion.
Below I posted about Detour's "Core Strength" bar to help with strength training due to ribose in the bar.
Ribose, (a pentose monosaccharide) according to one of my books, has "No food sources. "
"Ribose, xylose, and arabinose (all pentose monosaccharides) do not occur in free form in foods. They are derived from pentosans of fruits and from the nucleic acids of meat products and seafood. " Table 3.1 from Nutrition Basics
( I assume then Detour people extracted the derivative from fruits or meats and put it into their bars, I wonder if there is any scientific proof ingesting ribose in this form is beneficial at all ???????? Ding Ding Ding, Light Bulb : New Thesis Project Idea: Potential Benefits of Ribose in sports nutrition products ? Maybe... but I was considering: "The cost effectiveness of Organic Food Gardens in Schools and Communities" )
