Just like every Accelerade product, Accel Gels contain the patented 4:1 carb to protein formula. Yes, that means that they contain a bit of protein in addition to carbs. This causes the energy to hit your system a bit slower, but it is much more sustainable over longer workouts. It also helps the gel to increase endurance and reduce muscle damage.
The consistency of the Accel Gels isn’t too thick or thin -- it’s closer to syrup than a sticky honey. Flavor wise Accelerade is on the sweeter side. We definitely recommend trying these out before a big day to see how your body reacts to the carb + protein blend.
