We have made all of our flavors very light, and very clean on the pallet. East to drink with no aftertaste, or syrupy texture. 100% clear, so you know it’s TORQ!
This drink’s ingredient matrix is based on the benefits of multiple transport carbohydrates. Huh? Quite simply, more carbs can be absorbed by your body vs. maltodextrin, or glucose alone (single form carbohydrate). The increased availability of carbohydrate means that you will be able to sustain a higher pace for longer using TORQ energy, making this product the most advanced formulation available to endurance athletes on the market today.
TORQ energy contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration, together with a carbohydrate concentration of 6-8%, the same as that of your blood (Isotonic). These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allowing it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.

Why ‘real’ flavors only?
Under stress through exercise, digestion is affected as blood is diverted to the working muscles, so irrespective of the health debate surrounding the consumption of artificial ingredients, during exercise is certainly not the time to take them. Therefore we only use natural flavors that the body can recognize and break down easily and we don’t use colors or preservatives (artificial or natural), because they simply don’t need to be in the product.
TORQ’s pure ORGANIC unadulterated glucose polymer is light on the stomach and practically tasteless.
Derived from an organic maize source, TORQ Energy Organic can be mixed into a flavorless energy drink, or can be added to food to boost its carbohydrate content during periods of heavy training.
TORQ Energy Organic is made from maltodextrin, often referred to as a glucose polymer. A glucose polymer’s molecular profile optimizes the long-term energy providing properties of complex carbohydrates without the need to consume bulky starch-rich foods. These bulky foods take a longer time to digest because they contain fiber, an important, but metabolically useless nutrient. They also fill and bloat your stomach making movement and sport in particular more difficult. TORQ Energy Organic, when diluted with the correct amount of water, delivers a sustained supply of glucose to the working muscle. The beauty of this product is that it’s practically flavorless, so is ideal for people who like to drink water whilst exercising, but want to benefit from carbohydrate fueling.
This product can also be added to food to boost its carbohydrate content. 4 level scoops of TORQ Energy Organic mixed into a cup of soup will be barely noticeable, yet it will have increased its carbohydrate content to that of a large bowl of pasta! This makes TORQ Energy Organic ideal for carbohydrate loading or aiding recovery between heavy bouts of exercise. This is why this product features as a very important component in the TORQ Recovery System too!
For the same reasons as highlighted above, we don’t believe in the use of artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Acsulfame-K, Saccharine and Sucralose. These artificial sweeteners are 100’s of times sweeter than sugar and Aspartame/Acsulfame-K in particular have a very dubious reputation when it comes to health. Type either of them into Google and you’ll get the general idea.
If exercising intensely, or for prolonged periods in the heat, mix 1 level scoop of TORQ energy with every 250ml water consumed (4 level scoops per liter). This is a 6% carbohydrate mix. If using TORQ energy during lower-intensity training or in cooler conditions, you can experiment with higher concentrations (greater carb content with less fluid as you are not sweating).. We recommend that you do not exceed a 9% carbohydrate solution (6 level scoops per liter) of this product.
The Nutrition Facts information listed to the left shows the amount per serving for TORQ Energy products. A serving is 1 packets (individual sachet, box of 20) or 2 level scoops from a 500g Tub (15 servings total) or 1.5kg EcoSack (45 servings total).
Half fill drink bottle with water. Add 2 level scoops of TORQ energy. Put top on bottle and shake vigorously. Top-up with water and shake again. TORQ energy is now ready to drink.
