What is the Difference Between Refuel Gel and Reload Gel?
Simply put, you can consume more Refuel Gel (90g of carbs) than Reload Gel (60g of carbs) per hour.
Reload Gel is a glucose based product. The carb content consists of glucose and maltodextrin only. Maltodextrin is just made up of units of glucose. We recommend that you only consume 60g carbs (glucose equivalent) per hour of this product. That’s about one flask every 75 minutes.
Refuel Gel on the other hand is based on glucose and fructose – this is what is often nutritionally called multiple transportable carbohydrates. By combining these two carbohydrate sources, you should be aiming for up to 90g per hours of carbs from this product. Based on this, you can consume one of our 3-serve flasks of Refuel Gel every 50 minutes.
