Maurten GEL 100

The world’s first energy gel. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true. The GEL 100 was used by Eliud Kipchoge when he broke the world record 16/09/2018 and crossed the finish line in 2hrs 1 minute and 39 seconds.

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.

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. *Patent pending

Best gels so far

I tend to suffer gi problems normally with gels but these seem to sort it out. They give plenty of energy for there small size. The only problem I find is the texture. They're a cross between a gel and a jelly baby. I just gulp them down.

Good release of energy, strange consistency

The gel appeared to release energy well, I didn't spike and then crash as I have experienced with other gels. The packet was quite hard to open with cold January long run hands, it is quite lumpy but tastes nice, you need a swig of water with it really. I found about 5 mins after taking the gel, my stomach started to 'slosh' a bit like I had drunk a lot of water, a little read up says that the gel changes to a liquid once digested which then allows your body to absorb it, this would answer that issue. All this said, I was very impressed with the energy release so I will perservere with these and see if I can get used to the slight downsides I found.

Maureen Gel 100

Training for the London Marathon and have to switched to these from SIS gels that I have used when cycling. Yes they’re quite expensive but for me they are really working. I stayed fueled and happy on my longer runs. Will definitely be using them on the big day!
