This is the GEL. Energy capsulated in a natural hydrogel. Built with six ingredients – no added colorants, preservatives, or flavours. 25g of carbohydrates per serving. Can be used before, during, and/or after activity.

This is the GEL. It's a bold statement. But nonetheless true. From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. The GEL 100 is completely different. Its a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour.

The GEL 100 is built by harnessing natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients. It doesn't contain any colorants or preservatives and comes in 40g servings. Each serving contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.

INSTRUCTIONS

Consume the gel minutes before, during and/or directly after activity.

Maurten has developed general guidelines on how to use GEL 100, based on their own findings and scientific literature.

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 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. The GEL 100 is based on a 0.8:1 fructose-to-glucose ratio. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

GEL 100 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.
