Science in Sport (SIS) has launched its latest Beta Fuel range of nutrition products that includes powder mixes, gels and chews (aka energy bars), touting better absorption thanks to a new ratio of maltodextrin to fructose.
According to SIS, a new 1:0.8 ratio enhances exogenous CHO oxidation by up to 17% when compared to the British brand’s original 2:1 blend, while also increasing the percentage of carb oxidization from 62% to 74%, resulting in less stomach fullness and gastrointestinal distress for athletes who are training for more than 2.5 hours.
“The newly-researched ratio of 1:0.8 maltodextrin to fructose increases the percentage of ingested carbohydrate that is oxidised – from 62% to 74% – when compared with a traditional 2:1 blend. This allows the body to use up to 90g of carbohydrate per hour, unlocking an endurance athlete’s true performance potential through nutrition,” explains SIS.
“One of the greatest challenges in any sport is to quickly, conveniently, and adequately fuel in the throes of competition. Our science but practical-based solution – underpinned by an optimal ratio of maltodextrin and fructose – is the key to Beta Fuel. We have spent years researching and finessing the optimum carbohydrate delivery system to allow athletes to fuel their best performances. We are confident that our latest product range is the most sophisticated and complete on the market and is set to redefine the way athletes approach endurance sports,” adds Professor James Morton, Director of Performance Solutions at SIS.
As mentioned, the new Beta Fuel range of products comprises mixes, gels and chews that are available in a number of flavors including orange, apple, lemon-lime, strawberry and lime and red berry.
