From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. The Maurten Gel 100 is completely different. It's 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 that contains 60% carbohydrates--a high weight to energy ratio.
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.
Ingredients: Water, Glucose, Fructose, Calcium Carbonate, Gluconic Acid, Sodium Alginate
