WHAT IS THE OPTIMAL FUELLING DOSE AND RATIO?

This is a very complex question that requires some explanation. For a start, have a look what our scientist has to say about this:



Dose

The optimal carbohydrate dose really depends on the training status of individuals and the intensity of exercise. As you can imagine, bigger and stronger athletes require more energy as compared to lighter and less trained ones.

Check out our Fuelling guide to learn more.

Ratio

As per the ratio, things become even more complex. There are 3 simple sugar types: glucose, fructose and galactose. We will only mention glucose and fructose as galactose isn't super useful during exercise.

When it comes to glucose, research has shown that you can only oxidise up-to 60 grams of glucose coming from a drink/gel/bar during exercise. If you add some fructose to the mix, you can oxidise up-to 50% more carbohydrates. This is why our products are made of 1:0.8 ratio between maltodextrin and fructose.

At this point it is worth noting that maltodextrin is nothing else as a molecule containing multiple glucose molecules - it is just less sweet.
