Muir Energy's mission is to make the simplest portable food products with the smallest impact, to bring good energy to all people, and to use business to serve Planet Earth

Muir Energy was born on the John Muir Trail and evolved out of founder Ian Muir McNally's nutritional needs as an ultra distance hiker. Like many health-conscious endurance athletes, he struggled to find the right nutrition to keep me going while pushing my body to its limits.

He wanted something he could eat straight, add to oatmeal or soup, or spread on a cracker. Surprisingly, there weren't any products on the market that met all these criteria, So he decided to make it himself.

Muir Energy is exclusive to XMiles in the UK.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why use Muir Energy?

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF MUIR ENERGY?

Nine (9) months from the manufacturing date.

WHEN SHOULD I USE MUIR ENERGY BEFORE OR DURING A WORKOUT?

Burn Rate Before Activity During Activity
Fast Burning 5 minutes* 45 to 60 minutes
Slow Burning 5 minutes* 60 to 75 minutes

 

*Muir Energy metabolizes very efficiently, and is easy on the stomach - the energy it provides is smooth and steady, and subtle - you feel like you can just keep going without a significant spike up or down in perceived energy level.

Most runners start a race with slow burning, with or without mate, then finish the race with fast burning/savoury flavours with or without mate. For example, for a half marathon start with Cacao Almond or Cashew Vanilla Mate, by mile 10 eat a Blackberry Thyme, Red Raspberry Mate, or Passion Fruit Pineapple Banana.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SLOW BURNING AND FAST BURNING ENERGY?

Our Slow Burning gels are made with raw nut and seed butters. Their healthy fats and protein metabolize slow ‘n’ steady, and leave you feeling satiated longer. Combined with our mineral rich, low glycaemic electrolyte base, the result is a sustained fuel source for longer adventures.

Our Fast Burning gels are made with dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Removing the water means we can pack in more flavour and nutrition per pouch. The natural simple sugars from fruits and veggies metabolize quickly. Combined with our mineral-rich, low glycaemic electrolyte base, the result is a clean ‘n’ fast fuel source for your shorter adventures.

ARE MUIR ENERGY PRODUCTS EASY ON THE STOMACH?

Yes. We optimize our gels to contain the highest carbohydrate content with the lowest amount of fibre. While fibre is great for keeping you satisfied all day long, it can be a digestive disaster when taken while running.

We also use a maximum of 5 whole food ingredients in every pouch–no synthetic stuff to sour your stomach!

I HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY. IS MUIR ENERGY SAFE FOR ME?

Yes! All of our products are peanut-free and processed in a peanut-free facility. You are safe to enjoy all of our tasty products.

WHY DO YOU USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

To maintain the minimalist approach to our formulations. The essential oils we use are carefully chosen for their flavour, homeopathic magic and powerful preservative properties. All in one drop!

I’VE BEEN USING MUIR IN EXTREMELY COLD TEMPERATURES AND IT SEEMS TO BE FREEZING ON ME. WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THIS?

MUIR is made with real food ingredients and real food freezes or thickens considerably at low temperatures. However, we have found that body heat is an effective antidote to combat these thermal effects. Put your MUIR pouch in your hand a few minutes before use, or keep it in a pocket close to your body, and let heat transfer do the rest.

MUIR ENERGY IS THICKER THAN OTHER GELS. WHY IS THAT?

Bacteria and pathogens proliferate in an aqueous environment. To keep their products food safe, thinner or watery gels must use synthetic preservatives. We use exclusively real food ingredients with no synthetic preservatives. We have accomplished this by reducing the water activity in our products. This results in a thicker, more viscous - as well as more flavourful, nutritionally and calorically dense - product.
