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

Really good gels

I wasn’t sure what this was going to taste like but they’re not bad at all, they go down nice and easy and most importantly didn’t upset my stomach. Will definitely be buying more when needed

Good gel

Having never used gels before I was surprised at how much these help on mtb rides when I feel I’m running out of gas.

I don’t find the texture enjoyable but they taste ok and don’t give me any stomach issues.

Unexpected texture but great results.

I was not expecting the texture to differ so much from other gels, but I am happy with the performance and lack of stomach issues.
