MAURTEN DRINK MIX 160
MAURTEN DRINK MIX 160
NOT JUST ANOTHER SPORTS DRINK
Athletes have always struggled to fuel their bodies.
By the 1960s, scientists realized that drinking carbohydrate solutions during exercise increased performance. With a mixture of sugar, salts and lemonade, the first sports drink was born.
But carbohydrate drinks can cause problems. Our stomachs don't cope well with high concentrations of sugar ‚Äì often resulting in slower gastric emptying and GI distress.
At Maurten, we‚Äôre launching a new range of sports fuels. We‚Äôve harnessed hydrogel technology to develop carbohydrate-rich and natural sports drinks and energy gels that our bodies can tolerate.
BASED ON ONLY NATURAL INGREDIENTS
The hydrogel technology enables us to redefine the field of sports fuel. First out are the sports drinks Drink Mix 160 and Drink Mix 320;
Twice the energy ‚Äì the Drink Mix 320 contains nearly 14 per cent ‚Äì or 80 grams ‚Äì of carbohydrates when mixed. That's about twice as much carbs as was previously thought possible for the body to tolerate.
No added flavor ‚Äì we're not impressed by artificial flavors. You can tell what you're getting from the taste of our drink mixes.
Clean ‚Äì no added colorants or preservatives. Our sports drinks contain only natural ingredients. Nothing more and nothing less than what‚Äôs needed.
HOW IT WORKS?
Drinks - Mix the Drink Mix with water, and you‚Äôll have a liquid sports drink containing high concentrations of carbohydrates. The drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach, encapsulating the carbohydrates. The hydrogel then enables a smooth transportation of the sports drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
GEL 100 - The GEL 100 is a hydrogel ‚Äì a biopolymer matrix that holds carbohydrates. It relies on the same concept as our drinks where the hydrogel technology enables a smoother transportation of carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the carbohydrates are absorbed. In the case with our drinks, the hydrogel is formed in the acidity of the stomach ‚Äì but the GEL 100 is a hydrogel formed in production, by combining sodium alginate and calcium carbonate under exact conditions.
Mix the content of each sachet with 500 ml of water and shake well until dissolved. Be accurate, the functionality depends on this ratio. The mix is designed to be mixed with water with <40mg/L calcium content. Higher levels can affect how it's dissolved. Consume the sports drink minutes before, during and or directly after activity.
AMOUNT OF ENERGY
Studies have shown that our bodies can make use of up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour. One Drink Mix 320 sachet, mixed with 500 ml of water ‚Äì contains 80 grams of carbohydrates.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Drink Mix 320 is built on hydrogel technology*. When mixed with water you have a liquid carbohydrate sports drink containing a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. 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 absorbed.
SCIENCE IS A PART OF OUR NATURE. AND VICE VERSA.
In 2015, we discovered how to make sports fuels easier to tolerate by encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates in hydrogels. The sports fuels, based on only natural ingredients, became popular and one year later some of the world's best runners started using our products. The technology is patent pending.
