Maurten is revolutionizing sports nutrition with its innovative hydrogel technology. If you experience stomach discomfort from gels or struggle to increase carbohydrate intake, Maurten may be the solution. Unlike other gels that are solely made of simple sugars, Maurten's formula slows down the release of sugar into the intestines, preventing stomach upset. Trust the expertise of Maurten for optimal performance.
Traditionally, gels have been composed of a simple mixture of water, carbohydrates, and added flavors and preservatives. However, the GEL 100 breaks this mold. It utilizes a biopolymer matrix that combines fructose and glucose in a 0.8:1 ratio, allowing for an intake of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour. Unlike their drink mix, which relies on the acidity of the stomach to create a hydrogel, the Maurten Gel 100 already contains this unique technology, making it easily transportable to the intestine for efficient absorption of water, salt, and carbohydrates.
When it comes to taste, Maurten has it right. Other gels are known for being extremely sweet, syrupy or even chemical tasting. Often times, the taste is so bad that it's hard to get them down without cringing or maybe gagging.
Since Maurten gels use only a handful of natural ingredients, their gels have a mildly sweet, natural flavor that is not overpowering and goes down easy. I like to describe it as a light maple syrup or agave nectar.
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 that contain 60% carbohydrates (25g of carbs): a high weight-to-energy ratio.
Maurten Gel does NOT need water to consume it, whereas other gels do require that you also drink water to help digest them.
Maurten Gel contains electrolytes in the form of 20mg of Sodium per Gel.
