Maurten have re-invented the energy gel!
This is the GEL. Energy capsulated in a natural hydrogel. Built with six ingredients – no added colorants, preservatives or flavours.
This is the GEL. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true. From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. The GEL 100 is completely different. It’s a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour.
The GEL 100 is built by harnessing natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients. It doesn’t contain any colorants or preservatives and comes in 40g servings. Each serving contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.
- Each GEL100 contains 25g carbohydrates
- No added flavours
- No added colours or preservatives, only natural ingredients.
- Can be used before, during and/or after activity.
- Used by Eliud Kipchoge when he broke the Marathon world record in September 2018
Running wisdom suggests that if you’re on the move for longer than an hour, your performance could be improved with a sports drink or gel.
Using their breakthrough hydrogel technology, Maurten have developed an energy gel that our bodies can tolerate.
It enables the smooth movement of carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the carbohydrates are absorbed. Without being able to mix a drink mid-race, this is the perfect way to boost energy (25g per sachet). The GEL100 is thicker than most gels, has no flavour and is easy to tolerate.
It is well known that our bodies can make use of about 60 grams of ingested carbohydrates per hour, in the form of glucose or maltodextrin (glucose polymer). Using a 0.5:1 combination of fructose and glucose/maltodextrin, allows uptake of up to 90 grams per hour. More recent studies have shown that increased fructose content, above 0.5:1 enables an even higher uptake. The GEL 100 is based on a 0.8:1 fructose-to-glucose ratio. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.
