To make a product that enables the body to adopt so many carbohydrates per hour, what science is needed. MAURTEN has developed this very cleverly with the help of a special 'Hydrogel technology'. As far as it concerns the Drink Mix Maurten320 Is it huge that this 80g carbohydrate per 500 ml yields. Around the double of what the majority of other sports drinks.
As MAURTEN explains on his website:
“When you mix it with water, you have a liquid carbohydrate sports drink with a high concentration maltodextrin and fructose. The sports drink immediately turns into hydrogel into the acidity of the stomach. The hydrogel ensures a smooth transport of the stomach to the stomach intestine, where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed. "
MAURTEN also produces one DrinkMix 160, That is, a half -strong variant that is still contains 40gr carbohydrates.
In addition to the drinking mixes of Maurten, there is now also a real one hydrogel† This is the MAURTEN Gel100 that contains 25 grams of carbohydrates. Research at Maurten has resulted in results that you can take up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour with this gel (4 per hour). Our experience, however, is that you then have a full stomach, which is not always pleasant when running.
