Description

Even after 3 hours of sustained effort 50% of energy used was from the SiS Beta Fuel, rather than the body’s own fuel stores, with no cross-over from carbohydrate to fat usage taking place

Jeukendrup A.E. Carbohydrate feeding during exercise. Eur. J. Sport Sci. 2008;8:77–86. doi: 10.1080/17461390801918971. Though it is important to note, individuals may take time to adapt to consuming this amount of carbohydrate and the optimal amount per hour may also vary slightly depending on the individuals body weight, it is important to practice your nutrition during training to find the optimal amount that works for you. Fructose has a different transporter than glucose, a dual source formulation allows for greater carbohydrate delivery to our muscles during exercise, therefore increasing how much carbohydrate we can use. The 120g carbohydrate intake can be achieved from our drink, gel or jelly chew, or any combination of the three If there’s one thing I have always envied hikers and mountaineers for, it was that they got to chow down on delicious Kendal Mint Cakes on the go. Sure, you could try scoffing the sugary treat during a run, but it wasn’t ideal. Fortunately that sweet minty stuff has now been released in gel form. As you can imagine, it’s all about the mint, and you can choose between mint, raspberry mint, citrus mint and chocolate mint flavors. The 70g gel contains 27g of carbs and sweetens the deal with electrolytes to help keep you hydrated, and there is a caffeinated version available.The new enhanced Beta Fuel formula allows you to increase your carbohydrate intake to around 80-120g per hour as a result of the optimised 1:0.8 maltodextrin and fructose ratio. This will aid your performance by minimising gastrointestinal distress and enabling faster absorption.

Increase the percentage of ingested carbohydrate oxidised from 62% (2:1 ratio) to 74% (1:0.8 ratio) The GO Isotonic is the World’s first Isotonic energy gel, and chances are you might have come across one, it’s the OG of endurance nutrition and as the adage goes, if it’s not broken, don’t fix it! Being an Isotonic gel, this means you won’t need any additional liquid when taking the product, the mixture has the correct balance of water/ carbohydrate and electrolytes.

How can we help?

If you avoid using gels because of past gastrointestinal problems, Maurten’s gels are worth trying. I have not experienced significant stomach issues while using Maurten’s products, which have been my go-to for my past few marathons. For more intense and longer sessions of 2 – 2.5 hours or more, SiS Beta Fuel is the next generation of endurance fuelling. The Science In Sport Beta Fuel Gel crams a ridiculously high amount of carbs into an easy-to-consume and perfectly edible product. The ratio of carbs to fructose aims to be kind on the stomach, and during testing I've been thoroughly impressed. And though the price seems quite high, for what they deliver they actually work out quite good value – if you need the carbs.

I have been testing out the new range of BETA Fuel energy products from UK brand Science in Sport. They are tasty, easy to take onboard, and a notable scientific development over their predecessors and many other energy products on the market. Here's the low-down… Use this gel in combination with other SiS GO products to take in 60g of carbohydrate per hour for exercise lasting over 90 minutes. Fuelling every 20 minutes with a gel is a simple way to hit this carbohydrate target and keep performance at its peak with enough readily available energy for the body to perform Everybody has an individual tolerance to caffeine. Consume too much caffeine and this could negatively affect performance, depending on the individual. We recommend not consuming over 300mg of caffeine during an event, although some individuals can tolerate more. It’s best to try-out your response to SiS GO Energy + Caffeine Gels in training; as best practice use SiS GO Isotonic Energy Gels as your base and only take our caffeine based energy gels when you need a mental boost. Gels are best used just before you start running or during longer runs to ensure your body has enough carbs to fuel your exercise. How often should you use running gels? Long been favoured by elite athletes, our famous Science in Sport Beta Fuel Energy Drink has now been optimised, making it a scientifically superior fuel. A brand new 1:0.8 ratio of 80g carbohydrate enhances your power output, increases your body's carbohydrate usage efficiency, and limits gastrointestinal discomfort.

The Feed Station

A more common strategy is to aim for 30-60g of carbs per hour, which provides sufficient fuel for most runners and will be easier for your stomach to absorb. Remember the amount of gels you take will be governed by how practiced you are with them and how well your stomach copes with them, as much as by your carb targets. Both deliver you the energy you’re going to need for any endurance sport, but there are some slight differences between the two. Putting these two powerhouse endurance nutrition gels side by side should help you to find out which one is right for you. Haskell, C. F., Kennedy, D. O., Milne, A. L., Wesnes, K. A., & Scholey, A.
