The GEL 100 CAF 100 contains 100 mg of caffeine – that’s the equivalent of 1.5 espressos – or one cup of brewed coffee. That’s a lot compared to many of the traditional gels out there. It delivers 25 grams of carbohydrates through a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1). It packs a high weight to energy ratio and doesn’t contain any added flavours, preservatives or colourants. Just like all of our products, it’s vegan-friendly.

Use the GEL 100 CAF 100 on its own during shorter durations, or combine it with other Maurten products to ensure you have enough carbohydrates throughout your session.

WHY CAFFEINE?
Caffeine has been shown to promote alertness and reduce perceived effort and pain. These are properties that can be beneficial in sports performance. The GEL 100 CAF 100 can be used for building up caffeine levels – on its own, together with other caffeine sources, such as regular coffee – or to achieve sufficient caffeine levels during activity.

AMOUNT OF CARBOHYDRATES
It is well known that our bodies can make use of about 60 grams of ingested carbohydrates per hour, in the form of glucose or maltodextrin (glucose polymer). Using a 0.5:1 combination of fructose and glucose/maltodextrin, allows uptake of up to 90 grams per hour. More recent studies have shown that increased fructose content, above 0.5:1 enables an even higher uptake. The GEL 100 CAF 100 is based on a 0.8:1 fructose-to-glucose ratio. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.

GEL 100 CAF 100 – HOW TO USE
Developing a nutritional strategy for races or key sessions is complex. Everyone is different –and the caffeine absorption and metabolizing rate varies between individuals. There are two key factors that are important to take into account: 1) your body weight and 2) if you’re used to caffeine. Science suggests an intake of 3 mg of caffeine per kilogram body mass, to aid performance. But again, it’s highly individual. We’ve developed some general guidelines on how to use the GEL 100 CAF 100, based on our own findings and scientific literature.
