Why Maurten GEL 100?
Can be used before, during and/or after activity.
Maurten's hydrogel technology (patent pending) transports the carbohydrates and salt smoothly through the stomach into the intestine where the water, salt, and carbohydrates are absorbed. This is hugely important to anyone who experiences stomach cramps, or runs for the nearest little blue box during a race after consuming traditional carb-based gels.
With a relatively neutral flavour, Maurten just tastes of the sweetness of the fructose and glucose. It doesn’t contain any added flavours, preservatives or colourants.
Higher uptake of carbohydrates
The GEL 100 is completely different to traditional gels, which are simply carbs, water, flavouring and preservatives mixed into a syrup. GEL 100 is a natural biopolymer matrix filled with fructose and glucose in a ration of 0.8:1, which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour. This little gel packs a high weight to energy ratio.
