This is the world's first energy gel. It's a bold statement. But true nonetheless. From a technical perspective, traditional "gels" are water and carbohydrates mixed into syrups, often filled with flavors and preservatives. The instructions tell you to consume them with water.
The GEL 100 is completely different. It is a biopolymer matrix filled with a unique blend of glucose and fructose (ratio of 0.8: 1) that allows intakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour.
It is constructed by using natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients. It contains no dyes or preservatives and comes in 40 g servings that contain 60% carbohydrate - a high weight to energy ratio.
The GEL 100 does not taste very sweet, you would almost say it is tasteless, because the carbohydrates are encapsulated in the hydrogel structure. You do not need to rinse it with water.
Studies have shown that our bodies can use up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. Recent science has shown that the glucose to fructose ratio of 0.8: 1 allows even greater absorption - up to 100 grams per hour. The GEL 100 was developed by using this ratio and packing a lot of energy. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates. Consume 4x GEL 100 per hour and you're all set.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
GEL 100 is built on hydrogel technology*. The hydrogel ensures smooth transport of carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine, where water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
- Calcium carbonate
- Gluconic acid
- Sodium alginate
Maurten Gel 100 is a concentrated carbohydrate solution encapsulated in a biopolymer matrix. A liquid in a solid medium that capsulates salt, carbohydrates and water.
