What we think
Taste and personal preference regarding consistency (texture) are important factors when choosing your fuel. Some athletes may not particularly enjoy the stickiness of traditional gels and prefer an isotonic gel due to its more "watery" consistency. While we still want adequate carbohydrates to meet fueling needs, some just want something to chew on…
Chew on This
The 6D Energy Fruit is an amazing fueling alternative to gels. This product falls somewhere between a gel and an energy bar in terms of texture, providing variety to your fueling. You can consider it as a "thickened" energy gel, allowing it to be used in the same situations with minimal digestion and plenty of energy.
These Energy Fruit chews are in the optimal 2:1 glucose to fructose ratio provide, 26g of carbs + 100mg of sodium, are 50% fruit, and allow for a nice alternative to slamming gels!
How to Use It:
Take 1-2 fruit bars every half-hour of activity, best consumed alongside hydration/water. If you are seeking a late race punch, check out the caffeinated version for a boost!
Eat 1-2 fruit bars per hour of exercise, depending on exercise duration and intensity (plus fueling tolerance), and consume with water.
