Science is a part of Maurten's nature. And vice versa.
In 2015, they discovered how to make sports fuels easier to tolerate by encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates in hydrogels. The sports fuels, based on only natural ingredients, became popular and one year later some of the world's best runners started using their products.
maurten: Gel 160
Gel 160 uses the same Maurten hydrogel technology that is proven to work for athletes - just more, encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrates in each 65-gram sachet.
This is still the Gel.
Still the cleanest.
Still the realest.
Still no colors.
Still no preservatives.
Still hydrogel — that’s the innovation
Not just another sports drink
Athletes have always struggled to fuel their bodies.
By the 1960s, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrate solutions during exercise increased performance. With a mixture of sugar, salts and lemonade, the first sports drink was born.
But carbohydrate drinks can cause problems. Our stomachs don't cope well with high concentrations of sugar – often resulting in slower gastric emptying and GI distress.
At Maurten, they've launched a new range of sports fuels by harnessing hydrogel technology to develop carbohydrate-rich and natural sports drinks and energy gels that our bodies can tolerate.
Based on only natural ingredients
With the use of hydrogel technology, Maurten has increased the amount of carbohydrates, reduced the risk of gastrointestinal problems, and removed all unnecessary ingredients that don't aid your performance.
Twice the energy
The Drink Mix 320 contains nearly 14 percent – or 80 grams – of carbohydrates when mixed. That's about twice as much energy ever thought possible in a sports drink.
No added flavor
We're not impressed by artificial flavors. You can tell what you're getting from the taste of our drink mixes.
No added colorants or preservatives. Our sports fuel contains only natural ingredients. Nothing more and nothing less than what’s needed.
