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.
Guarana: We have 8 gels which are caffeine-free, but the now 3 Gels with caffeine starting with the new Caramel Latte and original Forest Fruits and Banoffee gels both contain 89mg of caffeine delivered via natural guarana. Caffeine is a psychological stimulant, so aids concentration when extra help is needed. Caffeine consumption during exercise can help to lubricate the central nervous system to increase muscular power and efficiency as well as mobilising fat as a fuel source, helping to spare glycogen (your carbohydrate reserves).
NEW - CRAFTED FROM REAL COFFEE. The NEW Caramel Latte TORQ Energy Gel (with Guarana).
Just when you thought Torq couldn’t possibly innovate any further with our their gel flavours - well it looks like they might have gone and done it again!
The new TORQ Gel is revolutionary in every sense of the word. Not only have we produced a new long-awaited variation of our caffeinated energy gel (incorporating natural Guarana to deliver 89mg of caffeine per tube), but this gel is actually created using real coffee. We roast our coffee beans just a few days before production and then brew an exceptionally large Cafetiere of real coffee, the contents of which are combined with natural caramel flavouring and the highly functional 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose energy matrix. And Voila, we have the most authentic and effective ‘Caramel Latte’ energy gel money can buy.
The functional energy delivering heart of TORQ’s formulation as ever comes from its 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose blend, enabling the highly functional TORQ Gel range to deliver 40% more carbohydrate than glucose-only formulations.
As this unique project took shape, it became clear that although we’re Sports Scientists, we’re also basically a bunch of coffee-obsessed cyclists, so we decided to forge forwards and develop our very own unique brand of coffee and we’ve called it ‘TORQ Press’. Did you know that an alternative name for a Cafetière is a ‘French Press’? Well, the coffee used in our new gel isn’t ‘French Pressed’ it’s ‘TORQ Pressed’ and so the journey begins.
In the case of this new Caramel Latte gel, we’ve boldly roasted a premium decaffeinated Columbian bean and then standardised the caffeine content of the gel by reintroducing it through caffeinated natural Guarana. This in essence is what the wider TORQ Press Coffee brand is all about – the science of irrepressible irresistible drinking pleasure.
