What we think

Maurten is changing the game of sports nutrition with its new hydrogel technology. Other gels on the market contain only simple carbohydrates, which can cause stomach upset because a high concentration of sugar can empty into the intestines too quickly with nothing to slow them down. Maurten has solved this problem by creating a gel that contains their unique hydrogel technology, which encapsulates those simple carbohydrates and enables smooth transportation into the intestine where water, salt, and carbohydrates are absorbed. This is slightly different from their drink mix, which requires the acidity of the stomach to form the hydrogel; the Maurten Gel 100 contains an already formed hydrogel.

From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavors and preservatives. The GEL 100 is completely different. It’s a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour.

The GEL 100 is built by harnessing natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients:

Water
Glucose
Fructose
Calcium Carbonate
Gluconic acid
Sodium Alginate.

It doesn’t contain any colorants or preservatives and comes in 40g servings that contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.

Maurten Gel does NOT need water to consume it, whereas other Gels do require that you also drink water to help digest them.

Maurten Gel does contain electrolytes in the form of 85g of Sodium per Gel.

Adam is in the Feed Kitchen for our first look at Maurten Gel 100:

 

So how is this "Gel"different?  It is packaged in a similar one time use packet like others but that's the only thing that is the same. Its texture is more like Jello, so it is easy to take down during exercise. Unlike other gel products, Maurten Gel 100 does NOT need to be taken with water! Another bonus feature is the high glucose to fructose ratio of 0.8:1 enabling uptakes of around 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour, which is more than any other product on the market.

Safe to say....Maurten has just created a "game-changer" for the gel market.

Love this gel

Jello like texture makes it easy to eat from the packet and very easy to digest. Provides me the fuel/energy I needed to maintain my pace throughout marathons and long training runs.

Maurten Gels

These are the best I’ve tried. Easy on my stomach and I can feel the extra energy in about 10 minutes. I also like that there’s very little taste and you don’t have to take it with water. Great gels!

Maureen gel and drink mix

Just returned from a 430 mile bicycle tour trip solo with gear accross Ohio. Climbed 24,000 feet. I relied on maurtin drink and gels to help keep me fueled for the trip. I am glad to say it went down easy and the tast was great. Very mild sweet easy to take in everyday and on the bike. I could not be happier with my new favorite drink and gel. Thank you Maurtin and Feed.

Maurten Gel

I have tried many, many different gels and chews over the years and inevitably everything is just too sweet for me (meaning I don't take them as often as I should, meaning my energy levels suffer, etc.). Someone recommended the Maurten Gels to me, and I have to say, so far so good! They still have a sweet taste to them, but it is not like eating candy or frosting the way many other products are. The consistency is like jello, and you don't need to take it with water which is really handy as well. I haven't run a race with them yet, but will do so within the next month and fingers crossed they do the trick under those conditions!
