Designed to be consumed without water – all gel flavors are clean, easy-to-consume, and especially tasty! You simply won’t believe it…
Maltodextrin used in isolation has been proven to be considerably more effective than glucose used in isolation because of its lower osmolality in the gut. However, recent research has compared traditional ‘maltodextrin only’ formulations with a 2:1 maltodextrin:fructose blend and the results show that the 2:1 blend gives 40% greater carbohydrate delivery.
The reason a 2:1 maltodextrin:fructose formulation works so well is actually rather simple, but it has been overlooked by research scientists until recently. This is because fructose (fruit sugar) has always been deemed slow and ineffective because of its low glycemic index. Glucose, on the other hand, was the preferred sugar for use in sports drinks until maltodextrin (a polymer containing many glucose molecules) was discovered.
Maltodextrin is the best carbohydrate to use in isolation, but what happens if you mix maltodextrin with fructose? Basically, unlike maltodextrin and glucose, which compete with each other for absorption, maltodextrin and fructose are absorbed in parallel, so you get the ultra-fast energy supply from maltodextrin, plus the slower energy release from fructose. In total, there’s a 40% greater delivery of carbohydrate to the working muscle. The peer-reviewed research studies* are two of an increasing number of well controlled investigations that have demonstrated these findings.
The flavors of these TORQ gels are sensational (please let us know if you disagree!) without the need to resort to using dairy and using natural extracts,
The texture of the TORQ gel is light and syrupy. It doesn’t stick to your mouth and you don’t need water to wash it down. TORQ has deliberately designed this gel to be easy to consume when you are on the move.
TORQ gels don’t contain artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Acsulfame-K, Saccharine and Sucralose.
TORQ gels are random-tested for the presence of substances listed on the WADA ‘banned’ list by an independent laboratory under ISO17025.
