15 Sep The New TORQ CHEW
Introducing the TORQ Chew…
Our new TORQ Chews are cold-pressed from 4 organic ingredients and have been formulated to deliver carbohydrate to the working muscles through an optimized 2:1 Glucose:Fructose formulation. They will be available for purchase from the TORQ Official Store and select stores in the southeast USA from mid September 2016!
Let’s begin with the key features and after digesting those, if you’re still intrigued, you can read the more comprehensive technical information further on:
TORQ Chew represents an innovative new way to fuel during exercise
TORQ Chew is precisely formulated utilizing multiple transportable carbohydrates
TORQ Chew integrates with the TORQ Fueling System (30g carbs = 1 TORQ Unit)
TORQ Chew is cold-pressed from just 4 Soil Association Certified Organic ingredients
TORQ Chew contains no added colors, flavors, preservatives or artificial sweeteners
Pack Size: Each chew weighs 39g and delivers 30g of multiple-transportable carbohydrate (1 TORQ Unit).
Dose: TORQ Chews can be used in combination with TORQ Gels, TORQ Bars, TORQ Energy and TORQ Hypotonic to achieve 2-3 TORQ Units per hour.
Flavors: Organic Mango // Organic Pineapple
Product Summary: TORQ Chews have the texture and flavor of chewy confectionery (candy) if we’re honest, yet the formulation is certified 100% Organic by the Soil Association, so as ever, nutritional purity is once again at the top of the TORQ agenda. Each chew contains 30g of carbohydrate, so represents 1 TORQ Unit and forms part of the TORQ Fueling System. TORQ Chews are deliberately a bit chewy, yet certainly not tiresome on the jaw – we believe that the key to successful fueling is all about variety. As with all TORQ fueling products, the formulation has to be optimized so that it will provide the best possible delivery of carbohydrate.
TORQ Chew: Technical Information
TORQ Chew represents an innovative new way to fuel during exercise: We are always looking for ways to create new fueling products which can be used in conjunction with other TORQ fueling products, or on their own as a preferred choice. For as long as we are able to dream up new and interesting fueling methods, we’re going to bring them to the market. TORQ’s Fueling System (explained in more detail below) works on the basis of 30g carbohydrate units and, at the end of the day, which unit you prefer to use at any particular time during exercise is a completely individual choice, so by creating TORQ Chew, we’ve simply given you another choice. All of TORQ’s fueling products have been optimized with multiple-transportable carbohydrates, so it doesn’t matter which you use. Just stick to 2-3 TORQ Units per hour.
TORQ Chew is precisely formulated utilizing multiple transportable carbohydrates: We analysed the concentrations of glucose and fructose within the natural organic ingredients we sourced for this project and produced a product with a precise 2:1 ratio of Glucose:Fructose derivatives. This means that the TORQ Chew benefits from the same optimal carbohydrate delivery utilized in TORQ’s other 2:1 products, so can be fully integrated into our TORQ Fueling System. Multiple peer-reviewed published studies have proven that 2:1Glucose:Fructose formulations can deliver up to 90g of carbohydrate per hour, compared to only 60g with glucose-only derivative formulations. This has clear performance implications, because more fuel is delivered to the working muscles, reducing the drain on internal stores of carbohydrate, thus delaying the onset of fatigue during endurance exercise. Gram for gram, multiple-transportable carbohydrates are much less likely to cause gastro-intestinal discomfort due to their more rapid and comprehensive absorption.
TORQ Chew integrates with the TORQ Fueling System: Each TORQ Chew contains 30g of carbohydrate, so represents 1 TORQ Unit. Each TORQ Gel and TORQ Bar also contains 30g of carbohydrate – both again being 1 TORQ Unit each, as does 500ml of TORQ Energy. The TORQ Fueling System is aligned with the research into 2:1 Glucose:Fructose multiple-transportable carbohydrates, meaning that the TORQ customer can consume any combination of 2-3 TORQ Units per hour for optimal fueling. 2-3 TORQ Units delivers 60-90g of carbohydrate per hour.
TORQ Chew is cold-pressed from just 4 Soil Association Certified Organic ingredients: All of the ingredients used to form the TORQ Chew are organic and the product is certified organic by the Soil Association. These raw ingredients are cold-pressed together to form the TORQ Chew without the need to cook or bake. This innovative product could not be more natural.
TORQ Chew contains no added colors, flavors, preservatives or artificial sweeteners: It is of utmost importance to us at TORQ that our performance products are as natural as possible, not just for health reasons, but fundamentally because we consider that anything added to one of our products that doesn’t essentially need to be there, is a barrier to absorption. If it’s not needed, we don’t put it in.
TORQ Chew can be used for fueling alongside all of TORQ’s other fueling products: As explained above, all of TORQ’s performance fueling products are composed of 30g units of multiple-transportable carbohydrates, so all the user needs to do is ensure that they consume 2-3 TORQ Units per hour during sustained exercise. When perspiration rates are high, the user will naturally drink more TORQ units (TORQ Energy), meaning that they need to eat less. When perspiration rates are low, the opposite is the case and the user will drink less, so will need to eat more solid fuel (TORQ Chews, TORQ Gel and/or TORQ bar) to achieve sufficient fueling units. No one else makes it this simple.
