  • Maurten GEL 100 is the world’s first energy gel. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true.

    From a technical perspective traditional “gels” are water and carbohydrates mixed into syrups, often filled with flavors and preservatives. The instructions state that you should consume them with water.

    The GEL 100 is completely different. It’s a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique blend of glucose and fructose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour.

    It 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. The GEL 100 doesn't taste very sweet, you could almost say it’s flavorless, since the carbs are encapsulated in the hydrogel structure. You don't need to wash it down with water.

    Instructions

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

    Amount of Energy

    Studies have shown that our bodies can make use of up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. Recent science has shown that the 0.8:1 glucose and fructose ratio enables even greater uptake – up to 100 grams per hour. The GEL 100 is developed by using this ratio and contain a very high carbohydrate concentration of 60%. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates. Consume four GEL 100 per hour and you’re all set.

    How does it work?

    The 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.

Excellent

Just because a product is endorsed by the elite doesn't mean it will work for the age grouper. However, I do like the gel. It is very sweet (too sweet for my taste) and the consistency is surprising at first but it doesn't upset my stomach and I can use it even without water (unlike some other products who claim to work without water but don't). Will be using it for my upcoming marathon.

Top product

I first tried the Maurten Gel 100 on a Long Run, where I used two gels. Safe to say they were a fantastic all round product. In particular I found;

- You don't need to take these with water.

- Easy on the stomach and easy to consume. Taste is absolutely fine too.

- Smallish and light compared with isotonic gels.

Maurten Gel

Excellent product, unusual jelly like texture, not much flavour which is good. No GI issues after taking it

Really good service as usual from energy snacks.

Perfect gel

Not too sweet . Carried 6 of them in a waistbelt during a marathon and didn't notice they were there as they're only 40g each . Gels have always caused me a lot of GI problems but these gels gave me no problems at all.
