If you want both hydration and lot of energy – this is the product for you. One serving contains 40 grams of carbohydrates (500 ml). Use it before, during and/or after activity. The Drink Mix 160 contains 40 grams of carbohydrates when mixed in 500ml water.
AMOUNT OF ENERGY Studies have shown that our bodies can make use of up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. One Drink Mix 160 sachet, mixed with 500 ml of water – contains 40 grams of carbohydrates.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Drink Mix 160 is built on hydrogel technology*. When you mix it with water, you'll get a liquid sports drink containing a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. The sports drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed. *Patent pending.
INSTRUCTIONS Mix the content of each sachet with 500 ml of water and shake well until dissolved. Be careful, you need to get the ratio right for the hydrogel technology to work. The mix is designed to be mixed with water with <40mg/L calcium content. Higher levels can affect how it's dissolved. Consume the sports drink minutes before, during and or directly after activity.

- Staff Review
I have been using Maurten nutrition for three weeks since the product landed. I traditionally use High5 but decided to try the Maurten because of all the positive feedback around the Hydrogel technology. I love the fact it doesn’t carry any particular flavour and this makes it must more palatable, the fact that it only has six ingredients also means it is much easier to control exactly what is going into my system. I have felt really good since using the product, I have been taking the 320 Drinks mix the night before a long run early the next morning and have felt energised both physically and mentally knowing I have the 80g of carbs I need for the two hours or so I am on the road. It’s a small thing but I also love the fact that the gels have tiny packaging (although the packaging is smaller there are more carbs in the Maurten gel then the High5 which is twice as big) meaning it doesn’t take up a lot of precious pocket/belt space when I’m out. I would recommend the Maurten nutrition to anyone who has reservations about the adverse effects of taking gels/sports drinks, it is kind on your tummy and much, much easier to take when in motion.
