Description
Energy in a natural hydro-gel. Each serving contains 100 mg of caffeine and delivers 25 grams of carbohydrates. Built with seven ingredients – no added colorants, preservatives or flavors.

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 flavors, preservatives or colorants. Just like all of our products, it’s vegan-friendly.

Use the GEL 100 CAF 100 on its own during shorter duration's, 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.

Benefits:

  • 100 g of caffeine
  • Easy on GI tract
  • Improves the ability consume more calories per hour to boost performance

RECOMMENEDED USE
DURATION <1 HOUR
This strategy would require 1 serving of GEL 100 CAF 100.
BEFORE: A beneficial level of caffeine can be reached by consuming around 200 mg before the activity. This can be achieved by consuming, for example, one cup of coffee in the hours before the event, and one GEL 100 CAF 100 during your warm-up. 
DURING: No intake is necessary.

DURATION <2 HOURS
This strategy would require 2-3 servings (depending on body weight) of GEL 100 CAF 100.

BEFORE: Aim at consuming 200 mg of caffeine before the activity. That simply translates into consuming two GEL 100 CAF 100. For an event that is about two hours, having one GEL 100 CAF 100 during the warm-up is a convenient way of building up the caffeine levels – and top up the carbohydrates levels at the same time. Remember that one GEL 100 CAF 100 packs 25 grams of carbohydrates.

DURING: About thirty minutes into the activity, consume another GEL 100 CAF 100 to ensure you keep your caffeine levels sustained. Don’t forget to replenish the carbohydrates. Aim at consuming 30-60 grams of carbohydrates every hour.

DURATION 2-6 HOURS
This strategy would require 2 – 4 servings (depending on duration and body weight) of GEL 100 CAF 100.

BEFORE: Consume 200 mg of caffeine during the hours leading up to the event.

DURING: About thirty minutes into the activity, consume another GEL 100 CAF 100 to ensure you keep your caffeine levels sustained. Aim at consuming one GEL 100 CAF 100 every second hour to sustain the caffeine levels. Don’t forget to replenish the carbohydrates – either by using the GEL 100, drinking Drink Mix 160 or Drink Mix 320. It’s ambitious but aims at an intake of around 60 – 90 grams of carbohydrates every hour.
