MAURTEN: GEL 100
This is the world’s first energy gel. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true.
From a technical perspective traditional “gels” are water and carbohydrates mixed
into syrups, often filled with flavors and preservatives. The instructions state that you
should consume them with water.
The GEL 100 is completely different. It’s a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique
blend of glucose and fructose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100
grams of carbohydrates per hour.
It 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 that contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.
The GEL 100 doesn't taste very sweet, you could almost say it’s flavorless, since the
carbs are encapsulated in the hydrogel structure. You don't need to wash it down
Consume the gel minutes before, during and/or directly after activity.
AMOUNT OF ENERGY
Studies have shown that our bodies can make use of up to 90 grams of carbohydrates
per hour. Recent science has shown that the 0.8:1 glucose and fructose ratio enables
even greater uptake – up to 100 grams per hour. The GEL 100 is developed by using
this ratio and packs a lot of energy. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.
Consume four GEL 100 per hour and you’re all set.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
GEL 100 is built on hydrogel technology*. The hydrogel enables a smooth
transportation of the carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the
water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.

• Gluconic acid

- The Maurten Gel 100 is a concentrated carbohydrate solution encapsulated in a biopolymer matrix. A liquid in a solid medium that capsulate salt, carbohydrates and water.
- The science behind Maurten fuel is that reduces the gastrointestinal stress that comes with highly concentrated carbohydrate solutions.
- Focus on what you need – not what your guts can take. The hydrogel technology allows you to get enough energy, without risking the race.
- Gel 100 quickly and effectively delivers the energy for the enhanced endurance performance.
- The gel doesn’t contain any colorants, preservative or added flavors.
