The Maurten Gel 100 is built by harnessing natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients. It doesn’t contain any colorants or preservatives and comes in 40g servings. Each serving contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.
This is the Gel. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true. From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. The Gel100 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.

How Maurten Works
By utilizing a unique hydrogel technology, Maurten has almost entirely eliminated sugar-related GI distress. Rather than sloshing around in your stomach, Maurten's hydrogel encapsulates carbs to transport them to the small intestine, where they can be properly absorbed.
Twice the Energy
Before Maurten, it was thought that the upper limit of carbohydrate intake was around 60 grams per hour. With hydrogel technology, Maurten gels and drink mixes allow athletes to absorb nearly twice as many carbs as previously thought possible. Athletes shattering world records are consuming over 100g of carbs per hour.
Only what you need to perform
Artificial flavors, colours, and preservatives do little to help performance and can lead to flavour fatigue over a long race or training session. Maurten products contain no artificial flavours or colours, and only include what's needed to perform.
