The Maurten Half Marathon Package (including Gel100) contains 2 sachets of the Maurten 320 Drink Mix and 3 gels of the Maurten Gel100. One portion 320 contains 80 grams of carbohydrates (500 ml) and a Gel100 contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.
To properly implement this sports nutrition plan, drink a 320 sachet (dissolved in 500ml water) at breakfast or more than half an hour before the race. Then take a Gel100 every 6 to 7 km during the race
For optimal quick recovery, we advise you to take a Maurten320 Drink Mix gel immediately after the race (discharged in 500ml water). Do not wait longer than 45 min-1 hour after the race.
How should you use Maurten?
Mix the contents of the sachet with 500 ml of water and shake well until completely dissolved. It is necessary to use the right quantities in order for the hydrogel technology to do its job.
How does the Maurten Drink Mix work?
The drink Mix 320 by Maurten is a sports drink with an applied hydrogel technology based on seaweed. When the powder is mixed with water, a sports drink is made that contains a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. The sports drink immediately becomes a hydrogel as soon as it comes into contact with stomach acid. The hydrogel provides a fluid and fast transport of the beverage to the intestines where water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed quickly.
