Each gel also packs a punch, delivering 30 grams of carbohydrate (significantly more than many other brands) allowing it to function as part of the unique and user-friendly TORQ Fuelling System, where TORQ's energy products can be combined for optimal fuelling purposes.
The Cherry Bakewell flavour hits you firmly between the eyes and there's no mistaking the rich raspberry jam, almond frangipane and subtle cherry topping.
The Lemon Drizzle flavour is subtler, where the initial welcoming sensation of soft Victoria sponge cake is followed by a velvety citrus lemon drizzle to finish. Initial head-to-head taste trials seem to have them pretty evenly matched, although you couldn't compare two more different flavour profiles.

Maltodextrin used in isolation has been proven to be considerably more effective than glucose used in isolation because of its lower osmolality in the gut. However, recent research* has compared traditional ‘maltodextrin only’ formulations with a 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose blend and the results are nothing short of staggering. For a comprehensive background to this research and for clear information on how to use TORQ gel in combination with other TORQ products.
The texture of the TORQ gel is light and syrupy. It doesn’t stick to your mouth and you don’t need water to wash it down. We have deliberately designed this gel to be easy to consume when you are on the move
Electrolytes: TORQ Gel contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.
Each TORQ gel weighs 45g.
