It's up to you! Roam can be consumed alone, or with other foods. Use it for sports activities, when you're on the go, or as a healthy substitute when you have afternoon sugar cravings.

For regular roamers
Consume as needed.

Energy during exercise is provided from carbohydrate (mostly muscle glycogen) and fat. Exercise sessions completed at higher exercise intensity is primarily fuelled by oxidation of carbohydrates (muscle and liver glycogen). However, during light to moderate intensity exercise, energy contribution from fat is much higher. Read more here.

Yes, there are plenty scenarios to use Roam during sporting events. Roam works best for longer duration events completed at a lower exercise intensity. Think about long ultra trail races or rides, multi-day adventure races, 24-hr rogaine events or similar endurance challenges. Energy intake during those sort of events has to come from variety of sources, mixing fluids with solid food. However, for shorter and more intense races (events lasting up to 2-3 hours), you may prefer a fuel that’s higher in carbohydrates to support high energy demands.

Our product is suitable for people that follow low-carb high-fat (LCHF) or ketogenic diet because of the low carbohydrate content in each packet (<5 grams of carbohydrate). Read more here.

Ingredients

Learn more about the natural ingredients we use in our Roam energy nut butter.

Yes, our Energy Nut Butter ingredients are vegan and gluten free, however, it is made in a facility that also handles dairy, egg, fish, crustacea, gluten, peanuts, sesame, sulphites and tree nuts. 

We use extra virgin sweet almond oil for its light flavour, and it’s healthy properties. Sweet almond oil undergoes cold extraction which preserves the natural goodness of the almonds. It is high in monounsaturated (healthy) fat and is a good source of Vitamin E and Vitamin D.

Sunflower lecithin is a well-known health food, that is also an emulsifier. Sunflower lecithin is made by dehydrating a sunflower and separating it into three parts: oil, gum and solids. The lecithin comes from the gum. It is processed using a cold press system, similar to how olive oil is made.

Lecithin is essential to our bodies. Some people take sunflower lecithin as a supplement (you can find it in your local pharmacy). An alternative is soy lecithin, however it is often processed with chemicals. More people are also allergic to soy.

We use sunflower lecithin to help keep our Energy Nut Butter a great consistency. However, we do recommend that you knead the packet before opening, to make sure everything is mixed in nicely!

We use Australian almonds.  We dry-roast them (that is, without using any oil) to bring out their wonderful flavour.

No, there is no caffeine in the Espresso Energy Nut Butter. Why? For caffeine to have a positive effect on exercise, you need a dose of about 3mg per kilogram of body mass. At rest, a dose of 80mg will have a mildly positive effect on cognitive function for most people. We decided to omit the caffeine because:

- Commonly used caffeine sources (guarana and green tea extract) are bitter, and an ideal amount negatively affects the flavour profile of the Energy Nut Butter

- Even if we reduced the caffeine content, it would not provide the effects that you would reasonably expect from a product containing caffeine.
