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 a 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.

  

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.

Worth the $

I’ve had stomach issues from other sports gels, and haven’t had issues since switching to Maurten.

Good stuff

These gels really work. Gels are a little pricey so I don’t use them for training, I save them for my longer events. Biking across Indiana on Saturday and will definitely have these in my pocket.

Maurten Gel 100

Uses it for the first time on a long ride at altitude. The consistency is like jello so it’s easy to consume and used in conjunction with the drink mix’s proved to be a winning combination. My energy and power was there throughout and I experienced no cramping!

LOVE IT!!

Great for racing - use it all the time for racing. Other gels leave a taste in your mouth after awhile this does not and provides nutrition and energy.

Perfect for sensitive stomachs

Amazing gels! I have used Hammer, Stinger, and Gu all of which made me extremely sick. I also used Spring once which I liked and didn’t seem to have any GI issues from. Maurten is the best out of all of these brands. I do wish these were a buck cheaper each but the cost is still very much worth it to me not to suffer 1-3 days of gastric distress after a long run or race (yes my stomach is that sensitive). A lot of people have commented on the consistency of these being weird or different. Most gels are like a thick, syrupy uniform texture. These are different in that the consistency is more gelatinous and chunky (not hard just curdled). I actually like this much much better. It’s got just a little bit of a mild, barely sweet flavor and is way easier to get down on a run. One thing to note... I’ve used two of these gels on long runs and both times the packet was difficult to open. Both tore where marked but not properly like they should have. I was forced to use my teeth to rip the pack open. I will most likely start cutting the pack open before starting my run.

Trial period all good

I’ve used the Gel 100 packs initially during heavy training blocks. While I was initially worried about the bland taste and consistency as it is more like a true gel than the syrup consistency of other products I found that the gel goes down easier because of its consistency. I had no issues with nausea or GI distress that I’ve experienced with other products and and Maurten seems to get into my system quickly so I’ve not experienced any issues with low energy. I used the gels during my first Half IM distance race with great results. I’m a believer.
