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

A gamechanger

These gels aren't like gels! They have no sickly sweet flavour, and they're more like soft jelly than a gooey mess. I found them a lot easier to open and consume, with no mess.

Maurten GEL 100

I didn't notice any specific benefit but the results did. Gel texture takes a bit of getting use to.

Perfect consistency

I’ve tried many gel brands over the years and find Maurten the best for me. Great consistency and taste - I dislike overly sweet synthetic flavours. Maurten gels are easy to digest and don’t give me any stomach issues.
