Race Highlights


From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. Maurten’s GEL:s are completely different. They harness hydrogel technology – a biopolymer matrix, filled with a unique blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) which enables uptakes of up to 100 grams of carbohydrates per hour. The GEL:s are built with six natural ingredients and doesn’t contain any colourants or preservatives. Each 40-gram serving contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.

Our hydrogel is a biopolymer- and water-based structure with very small pores – a three-dimensional network with the ability to hold water and carbohydrates. At the nano-level, it looks and behaves a bit like a sponge. We build the hydrogel with natural food ingredients and fill the structure with the most efficient source of energy around carbohydrates. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.

Getting the fueling right makes a huge difference, no matter if it’s in training or during the race. But, everyone is different. That’s why it’s important to try, evaluate and adjust your fueling strategy according to your body and how you feel. So, make sure you fuel your training sessions – that’s key to getting the fueling right. We’ve developed some fueling guides based on the latest scientific findings together with input from the best endurance athletes in the world. Get the fuel guides here.

In 2015, we discovered how to make sports fuels easier to tolerate, by harnessing hydrogel technology. Since then, we’ve worked with the best runners, cyclists and IRONMAN athletes in the world. Eliud Kipchoge, Team Jumbo-Visma and Jan Frodeno all use our technology. They rely on us to make sure they have enough energy, both in training and competition. And they play a vital part in our product development. We know that if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for everyone else.
