Science Meets Nature. Performance Meets Purity.
In the heart of Maurten lies the fusion of nature and science. Their journey began in 2015 when they unlocked the secret to encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates in hydrogels, making sports fuels more digestible. Made exclusively from nature's bounty, these breakthrough products swiftly became the preferred choice of the globe's premier runners.
Redefining the Sports Drink
The inception of sports drinks dates back to the 1960s when the blend of sugars, salts, and lemonade paved the way for enhanced athletic performance. Yet, these carbohydrate concoctions often waged war on our digestive system, leading to gastric discomfort. Enter Maurten. Harnessing the prowess of hydrogel technology, they’ve reimagined sports fueling. Maurten’s offerings are a harmonious blend of potent carbohydrates and natural ingredients, tailor-made for the body's optimum tolerance.
Pure, Potent, and Natural
Potency Like No Other: Drink Mix 320 delivers a staggering 14 percent - a whopping 80 grams - of carbohydrates when blended. This level of energy concentration was once deemed unattainable in a sports drink.
Genuine Flavor: Maurten believes in authenticity. By bypassing artificial flavors, the genuine taste of the drink mixes reveals their pure ingredients.
Unadulterated Purity: Free from colorants and preservatives, their sports fuels contain only the necessary natural ingredients. Nothing more, nothing less.
Backed by Science and Champions
In 2015 the innovation of hydrogel-encased carbohydrates was more than just a product; it marked a paradigm shift in sports nutrition. By the following year, elite marathoners across the world were amplifying their performance, fueled by our state-of-the-art technology.
But the journey doesn't stop here. At Maurten, they continuously collaborate with leading international research institutions and universities. Numerous studies are underway to delve deeper into our technology's prowess.

Drink Mix

Maurten Drink Mix Options

Maurten offers 3 different types of drink mixes to perfectly fuel your body for what it needs. Starting with the Drink Mix 320, which has 320 calories, and about 80g of carbs per sachet. Then you have the Drink Miz 320 Caf 100 which has the same calories and grams of carbs as the normal Drink Mix 320 but with 100g of caffeine. Last you have the Drink Mix 160 which as you guessed it, has 160 calories and 40g of carbs per sachet, for when you need the fueling but not quite as much. Great when paired with a Gel or Solid Bar.

Maurten Drink Mixes Explained

When an athlete blends Drink Mix 320 or 160 with water, they get a carbohydrate-rich sports beverage that quickly transforms into a hydrogel in the stomach. This hydrogel ensures efficient delivery and absorption of carbohydrates in the intestines.

Maurten's Unique Advantage

Traditionally, drinks with higher carbohydrate concentrations slow gastric emptying, leading to digestive issues. Maurten's use of hydrogel technology mitigates this problem. Consequently, many elite runners now trust Maurten products for training and competitions.


How Does Maurten's GEL Work?

This is no ordinary gel; it's a hydrogel. Maurten's GEL ensures efficient carbohydrate transport from the stomach to the intestine. Unlike their drink range where the hydrogel forms in the stomach, this GEL is pre-formed, thanks to a precise mix of sodium alginate and calcium carbonate.

What Sets Maurten Gels Apart?

While traditional gels are basic carbohydrate syrups often with additives, Maurten's GEL is unique. Inside its hydrogel matrix is a blend of fructose and glucose (0.8:1 ratio), enabling the uptake of up to 100 grams of carbs per hour.

All About Gel Caff 100

The GEL 100 CAF 100 is a hydrogel sports fuel, packed with 100 mg of caffeine, equivalent to 1.5 espressos. Besides delivering 25 grams of carbohydrates, it stands out with a high weight-to-energy ratio and contains no added flavors or preservatives.

Solid Bars

Maurten's Solid Bar Overview

'Solid' represents Maurten's pioneering step beyond their renowned Hydrogel products. Built on a foundation of scientific research and athlete feedback, Maurten has crafted an oat-and-rice chewable focused purely on performance. While it may share the appearance, texture, and taste of conventional bars, Maurten Solid bars distinguishes itself as a league apart.

Redefining Race Nutrition with Solid

The right fuel at the right time is pivotal, especially in extended athletic sessions. 'Solid' offers athletes a unique opportunity to emulate their regular eating habits even in the heat of competition. This chewable, textured fuel is designed to be consumed when one might usually opt for a meal, promoting equilibrium and reducing digestive discomfort.

A Legacy Beyond Hydrogel

While Maurten's Hydrogel technology, since its 2015 inception, has revolutionized athletic nutrition, 'Solid' embodies the same principles of science, athlete-centric feedback, and performance innovation. Though it diverges from the Hydrogel lineage, 'Solid' stands as a testament to Maurten's unwavering commitment to excellence.

Gel 160

Optimal for Long-Distance Endurance

Gel 160 presents a larger hydrogel option, offering 40 grams of carbohydrates in each serving. This product is crafted with only 6 natural ingredients and is free from added colors, preservatives, or flavors. It is designed for athletes seeking a higher energy content in their gels to support their training and racing endeavors. Gel 160 is tailored for athletes who demand more energy in each gel, especially critical in endurance sports where maintaining performance is key. Gel 160 assists athletes in achieving the necessary carbohydrate intake per hour, regardless of the circumstances.

Comparison with Gel 100

Both Gel 100 and Gel 160 are based on the patented Maurten Hydrogel Technology and maintain the same fructose-to-glucose ratio of 0.8:1. While Gel 100 contains 25 grams of carbohydrates, Gel 160 offers 40 grams. Gel 160 is particularly effective for longer endurance events or sessions where fueling chances are sparse. Its larger size allows athletes to carry fewer sachets while still benefiting from the same reliable hydrogel performance. Athletes can interchange between both sizes depending on their training or race requirements. Whether an athlete requires more or less, the advantages of Maurten hydrogel fueling remain consistent, offering a system that allows for precise fueling strategies.
