GEL 100 CAF 100 – Introduction
Imagine a product that combines hydrogel technology, carbohydrates and caffeine.
Well, now it’s here.
Caffeine tastes bitter. The sports nutrition industry has historically tried to hide the bitterness in gels by adding flavors and acid, or by simply just having low levels of caffeine. But added artificial flavors won’t help you go faster. And you want sufficient levels of caffeine. So, we decided to simply circumvent the problem. By harnessing our Hydrogel Technology we’ve built a biopolymer matrix that is dense enough to encapsulate both the caffeine and the carbohydrate mixture. The result: GEL 100 CAF 100 – a true GEL with low bitterness, low sweetness, an effective level of caffeine and a lot of energy.
Again, it’s a world’s first.
The GEL 100 CAF 100 contains 100 mg of caffeine – that’s the equivalent of 1,5 espressos – or one cup of brewed coffee. That’s a lot, compared to many of the traditional gels out there. It delivers 25 grams of carbohydrates through a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour. It packs a high weight to energy ratio and doesn’t contain any added flavors, preservatives or colorants. Just like all of our products, it’s vegan friendly.
GEL 100 CAF 100 – HOW TO USE Developing a nutritional strategy for races or key sessions is complex. Everyone is different –and the caffeine absorption and metabolizing rate varies between individuals. There are two key factors that are important to take into account: your body weight and if you’re used to caffeine. Science suggest an intake of 3 mg of caffeine per kilogram body mass, to aid performance. But again, it’s highly individual. We’ve developed some general guidelines on how to use the GEL 100 CAF 100, based on our own findings and scientific literature.
