From a technical perspective, traditional gels are water and carbohydrates simply mixed into syrups, often containing added flavours and preservatives.
The Maurten 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 that contains 60% carbohydrates--a high weight to energy ratio.
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.
Ingredients: Water, Glucose, Fructose, Calcium Carbonate, Gluconic Acid, Sodium Alginate

My son who is a triathlete turned me on to Maurten products several months back, and I am highly impressed. When your doing how output lengthy rides its hard to keep your energy up so I'm always interested in new solutions. The Maurten Fuel Gel 100 is a difference maker for sure compared to even the other high quality gels on the market. Its got a sweet flavor that is neutral to the pallet and non-fatiguing. I have found that using a 100 gel pre ride makes a huge difference in how I feel on the bike. While these are not inexpensive I think they are well worth the investment. I use the Maurten solids as well which are equally impressive
Even though these gels are a bit pricey, they are the best! I try to save these for races, fast group rides and big training rides. When you absolutely need the best, look no further. I actually think these taste really good as well.
Tha Maurten Fuel Gel 100 fits my need for an effective energy food, that is very easy on the palate and the stomach. The package is very easy to open, and extract the gel under ride conditions. A well-engineered performance gel. Well worth the higher price per serving.
