    MAURTEN GEL 100 - This is the GEL. It’s a bold statement. But nonetheless true. From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives. The GEL 100 is completely different. It’s 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 100 is built by harnessing natural hydrogel technology and built with six natural ingredients. It doesn’t contain any colorants or preservatives and comes in 40g servings. Each serving contains 60% carbohydrates – a high weight to energy ratio.

    Meet the Hydrogel

    Hydrogels are widely used in the food industry, often as thickeners and structurants. A hydrogel is a biopolymer- and water-based structure with very small pores. As a three-dimensional network with the ability to hold water, it looks and behaves a bit like a kitchen sponge.

    At Maurten, we’ve found a way to build hydrogels with natural food ingredients. And we’ve filled the structure with the most efficient source of energy around – carbohydrates.

    The hydrogels in our sports drinks are built from the combination of two natural ingredients:

    • Alginate – extracted from the cell walls of brown algae.
    • Pectin – found in apples, lemons, carrots and tomatoes, to name a few.

    These two dietary fibers have been used for decades within the food industry. Combined under precisely the right circumstances, alginate and pectin form a pH-sensitive hydrogel.


    Consume the gel minutes before, during and/or directly after activity.

    We’ve developed general guidelines on how to use GEL 100, based on our own findings and scientific literature.

    It is well known that our bodies can make use of about 60 grams of ingested carbohydrates per hour, in the form of glucose or maltodextrin (glucose polymer). Using a 0.5:1 combination of fructose and glucose/maltodextrin, allows uptake of up to 90 grams per hour. More recent studies have shown that increased fructose content, above 0.5:1 enables an even higher uptake. The GEL 100 is based on a 0.8:1 fructose-to-glucose ratio. One serving contains 25 grams of carbohydrates.


    GEL 100 is built on hydrogel technology*. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.

    For 60 min (or less) sessions, the suggested intake is up to 40 grams of carbohydrates at the start of your performance.


    For sessions less than 2 hours, the recommended intake is about 30 – 60 grams of carbohydrates per hour.


    For sessions lasting longer than 2 hours, you should aim to intake about 80 - 100 grams of carbohydrates every hour while performing.

    3-4 X GEL 100


    Maurten can also be used as a carbo-loading before a key session or competition. An easy way is to drink one Drink Mix 320 the day before a race.


    After a race or a hard training session, the body needs carbohydrates to recover fuel stores. Our suggestion is to consume one Drink Mix 320 within 30 minutes after the session has ended.


    These guidelines are simplified and should only be used as a rule of thumb. Always keep in mind that there's no point of pushing your carbohydrate intake. You can never compensate for training and overconsumption won't help you.

    Der Gel ist nicht wie die "normalen" Gels und sollte auf jeden Fall getestet werden. Mir passt der Gel sehr gut und ist gut verträglich.

    Bin sehr zufrieden mit der Verträglichkeit. Vom Geschmack her ziemlich neutral. Ich nutze die Gels zusammen mit Drink mix 320., Vielen Dank für die immer schnelle Lieferung!

    Bevor man sich mit Maurten im Wettkampf verpflegt, sollte man es auf jeden Fall testen! Es hat doch deutlich mehr Kohlenhydrate und die Konsistenz ist anders.
