Ribose has gradually been making its way into functional foods over the last few years, including chocolate energy bars from Good Superfoods.

“We loved the long energy cycle of ribose and wanted it to be a key component of our finished product,” says Frantellizzi. He says the “energy goal” of the bars is to offer a “focused, steady energy without jitters or a crash.”

The Superfood Chocolate Energy Bars also include cocoa polyphenols, organic caffeine extract, guarana extract, and ashwagandha. Some of the flavors currently available are pomegranate, cocoa mocha, and roasted peanut/caramel.
