Science in Sport Beta Fuel has been developed to deliver the maximum amount of carbohydrate in a 2:1 ratio of Maltodextrin to Fructose whilst limiting gastrointestinal distress. The product mixed to concentration is 80 grams carbohydrate (2:1 maltodextrin:fructose), 20 mmol/L sodium and 500 ml of fluid per serving. Features:
2:1 ratio maltodextrin:fructose.
80g total carbohydrate.
Natural flavours and sweetener.
Added Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium
A rate limiting factor of exogenous carbohydrate utilization during exercise is the transportation of the nutrients across the intestinal wall. Once the sodium-dependent transporter, used to transport maltodextrin, is saturated at 60 g.h additional carbohydrate can be absorbed through another transporter, GLUT5, used to transport fructose.
Fuelling requirements for long endurance events (greater than 2.5 hours) are 60-90 g of carbohydrate per hour. The ability to deliver such high levels of carbohydrate with minimized risk of GI issues is crucial to performance. Beta Fuel can be used to meet these fuelling demands in an isotonic solution.
What is Science in Sport Beta Fuel? Beta Fuel is the world’s most powerful sports drink. Developed to deliver the maximum amount of carbohydrate in a 2:1 ratio of Maltodextrin to Fructose whilst limiting gastrointestinal distress
Why 2:1 now for Science in Sport? 2:1 ratio sports drinks aren’t new; however, historically they’re delivered in hypertonic solutions meaning a high risk of stomach upsets which is why we’ve avoided as a brand. Now, following a development cycle alongside Team Sky, 2018 Giro D’Italia Winners, Beta Fuel is a breakthrough technology delivering the optimal dosage of carbohydrate whilst maintaining an isotonic solution.
Is Beta Fuel isotonic? Yes, when mixed to concentration (one 84 g sachet in 500 ml water) Beta Fuel is Isotonic.
How does Beta Fuel compare to other 2:1 sports drinks? Each 500ml serving of Beta Fuel provides 80% more carbohydrate than High5 Energy Drink and 2.5 times more energy than Torq Energy Drink
How should I mix Beta Fuel? Mix one serving (84 g) of Beta Fuel with 500 ml of fluid. No complicated directions, our drink isn’t limited by a need to use a specific type of water like other niche brands, simply mix & go.
What are the benefits of Beta Fuel? Fuelling requirements for long endurance events (greater than 2.5 hours) are 60-90 g of carbohydrate per hour. The ability to deliver such high levels of carbohydrate with minimized risk of gastrointestinal issues is crucial to performance. Beta Fuel can be used to meet these fuelling demands in an isotonic solution.
How does Beta Fuel fit into my overall fuelling plan? During long endurance events greater than 2.5 hours, it is recommended to fuel with 60-90 grams of carbohydrate per hour, from the first hour. When fuelling a flat, less technical ride, drink 250 ml of Beta Fuel per hour and use additional products from the GO Energy Range to fuel with 60-90 grams of carbohydrate per hour. When the route profile is challenging, i.e long climbs or technical descents, drink 125 ml of Beta Fuel every 15 minutes to fuel an hour.
What is the nutritional information per serve? Beta Fuel is 80 grams carbohydrate, 20 mmol/L sodium and 500 ml of fluid per serving.
Are these ‘natural’? Yes, Beta Fuel uses natural flavours and is free from colours and preservatives.
Is Beta Fuel Banned Substance Tested? Yes, Beta Fuel is tested under the Informed Sport programme.
