Maurten FAQS

What's different about your sports drink mix?

Normally, as soon as the concentration of carbohydrate in a drink is increased, gastric emptying slows down – resulting in less fluid and carbohydrate delivery to the body. The stomach problems caused by this have been a significant issue for many athletes.

At Maurten, we’ve found a way to avoid these problems by using hydrogel technology. This has enabled us to develop sports energy products with high carbohydrate concentrations. Some of the best runners in the world are now using our products, both during training and races.

HOW DOES THE HYDROGEL SPORTS DRINK WORK?

The sports drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are released and absorbed. Giving you a fast and large supply of energy that your body can tolerate. Find out more about the hydrogel technology here.

WHY USE YOUR SPORTS FUELS?

The hydrogel technology encapsulates high concentrations of carbohydrates to fuel during activity. We only use food-graded ingredients and there are no added flavors, colorants or preservatives. Nothing more and nothing less than what’s needed.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN YOUR SPORTS FUELS?

The products only contain five ingredients – all well-established and food-graded. Our Drink mixes contain maltodextrin, fructose, pectin, sodium alginate and sodium chloride (salt). Find out more on our Innovation page.

What water should I use?

Our hydrogel sports drink is advanced and the function rely on precise circumstances. We recommend you to not mix it with water with high levels of minerals (>40mg/L calcium). High calcium concentrations make the drink mix hard to dissolve.

ARE YOUR SPORTS FUELS SAFE TO USE?

Yes, samples from every batch have been, and will be, sent for screening by independent third party laboratories. All Maurten suppliers are certified according to the international FSSC 22000 standard.


ARE THE SPORTS FUELS ONLY FOR ELITE ATHLETES?

No, the products are for everyone – from elite athletes to amateurs.

Where will you ship?

We are now shipping to addresses  within the European Union. Later in 2017, we'll start shipping to the USA.

Is the technology patented?

Yes, we have filed several patent applications to protect the technology.
