Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress. It is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great workout start to finish. This 15-serving pouch is designed for use with GU's Gel Flask to add convenience and reduce waste on long rides.

During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise and, because of its form and ingredients, is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.

GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

By simply adding GU to your normal workout routine - one serving 15 minutes before starting then another every 45 minutes or so - you will feel strong and energized, be able to maintain your effort throughout the workout, feel better when you finish, and recover quickly for your next workout. If you want to have a good workout you have to supply your body with the right fuel - GU Energy Gel.

Note: Salted Caramel flavor contains 20 mg caffeine per serving.

I'm a fan of GU for providing me everything I need from 2 hour rides to 8 hours. I get these bulk packs and squeeze 4 oz in to a Hammer 6 oz flask, add 2 oz of water, and shake. This gives me a much easier, less messy way to consume on the go. Best value, particularly when these are on sale.

saves money per serving, no doubt. But consider exactly how you plan to dispenseconsume

The concept is great. The application vessels are NOT, including the Hydroflask...which really isn't good unless you emptyclean it weekly.

Great taste with a little kick!

Love the salted caramel flavor. Has a small amount of caffeine in it, it gives you a pickup without the jitters, so it can be used multiple times for long rides. At the sale price it was less than $1 per serving.

Tastes good, easy to access on bike, prevents a bonk.

Like the taste, used this on a Gran Fondo and it worked. While I used the refuel stops to fill water bottles I didn't need to get food. Spent less time at the restrefuel stops more time on bike, finished faster.

Triathlon training, particularly running, just finished a marathon holding the flask filled with salted caramel. Goes down easy and keeps me from being hungry.

Easy to carry and it works

The flavors I have tried all taste good and I still enjoy them at the end of a ride not just at the beginning. Easy to fill the pouch and easy to eat on the go.

Buy only if it's on sale

Stuff works, 'nuff said...but...

At $1serving (the regular price), I don't find particular value in buying bulk. A GU competitor sells their bulk bottles at $0.77serving. The premium GU Roctane is $1.66serving. That MSRP is too steep for me.

Love this stuff.

Love the taste and very easy on my stomach. I have seen numerous comments about the flask and related on-bike storage but do not see 6 individual packets that each leak and make a royal mess after opening as being a better system. I do not want 6 opened, sticky packets in my jersey pockets. The problem is that gel is inherently messy and incredibly sticky - you cannot 100% empty it from any container. Personally, I would rather have a single large flask than repeatedly tear off the little opening tabs at risk of squeezing while doing that and covering myself with gel. And it is just not that hard to put a flask in a pot of hot water to clean it.
