Maurten Gel 160
Gel 160 - Box of 10 Servings .
Going long? Take more. It’s that simple. Gel 160 is for athletes who want more energy in each gel. In endurance sport — to maintain performance — it’s important to fuel regularly. Every fueling moment needs to count. And the further you go, the more carbs you need to sustain performance. Gel 160 helps athletes achieve the right amount of carbs per hour with proven Hydrogel Technology — no matter the situation.
Consume the gel minutes before, during and/or directly after activity.
AMOUNT OF ENERGY
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 an 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.
FLAVOUR AND TEXTURE
Best described as Flat Lemonade flavour with a Jelly Bean texture. Gel 160 is not a sickly sweet syrup, it is a gel.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
GEL 160 is built on hydrogel technology*. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
