TORQ Chews have the texture and flavour of chewy confectionary, yet the formulation is certified 100% Organic by the Soil Association, so as ever, nutritional purity is at the top of the TORQ agenda. TORQ Chew forms part of the TORQ Fuelling System.
TORQ Chews are deliberately chewy, because we believe that the key to successful fuelling is all about providing variety. We are all individuals and it is important for us to produce products that allow our customers to consume optimised carbohydrate forms in different and interesting ways. TORQ Chew’s formulation has been optimised with 2:1 Glucose-Derivatives:Fructose, so that it will provide the fastest possible delivery of carbohydrate once consumed.
TORQ Chew forms part of the TORQ Fuelling System, so can be used alongside TORQ’s energy drinks, gels and bars to fuel optimal performances.
Each TORQ Chew provides 30 grams of multiple-transportable carbohydrates (1 TORQ Unit). For optimal performances, our TORQ Fuelling System recommends consuming 2-3 TORQ Units per hour which can be achieved through consuming a variety of fuelling products as illustrated in the table below. Consuming a TORQ Chew is simply one method of ingesting a TORQ Unit.
The higher your perspiration rates, the more TORQ Energy Drink you will need to consume relative to our more concentrated fuelling units – TORQ Bars, TORQ Gels and TORQ Chews. All of our fuelling products are optimised with multiple-transportable carbohydrates, the only difference between them is the texture; Smooth, Soft or Chewy.
Each TORQ Chew contains 30g of multiple-transportable carbohydrates.
We believe TORQ Chew to be a delightfully novel way of consuming 30g of carbohydrate whilst exercising with its chewy texture and rich flavour. Having said this, there is no quicker way to consume 30 grams of carbohydrate (1 TORQ Unit) than via our TORQ Gel. We don’t recommend using TORQ Bar or TORQ Chew during high intensity racing or training, when heavy breathing makes consuming them difficult.
For these reasons, we advise combining TORQ Energy Drink with TORQ Energy Gels during higher intensity efforts and factor in TORQ Chews and TORQ Bars over the longer distances, where exercise intensities are lower, for variety. Of course, the beauty of the TORQ Fuelling System is that the choice is yours and we accept that everyone has different preferences.
Keep it warm: In cooler temperatures, store TORQ Chew close to the body to keep it soft and malleable or you might find it a bit too chewy!

- Part of the TORQ Fuelling System
Multiple-Transportable Carbohydrates: TORQ Chew utilises a 2:1 blend of glucose-derivatives and fructose founded on a now substantial body of peer-reviewed published research (see References tab). The carbohydrate sources for TORQ Chew come from an extremely low osmolality organic maize-derived maltodextrin (a long chain glucose derivative), organic agave nectar and organic fruit. This dual-delivery carbohydrate formulation has been proven beyond doubt to supply energy faster than any other combination of carbohydrates or single carbohydrate source formulations.
Here we thoroughly explain the research and why we have incorporated it into this product and others in the fuelling range.
Hypertonicity: The concentrated nature of TORQ Chew pitches its tonicity firmly in the hypertonic zone, meaning that the product has been optimised to prioritise fuel delivery over fluid supply. This, in combination with the unique integration of multiple-transportable carbohydrates makes TORQ Chew an extremely potent useable fuel source. The TORQ Fuelling System outlines how TORQ Chews should be used in combination with our other fuelling products.
Hydration Management: TORQ Chew will clearly not satisfy your hydration requirements, so it is vital that you use this product in conjunction with TORQ Energy Drink to ensure optimal physical performance. As the TORQ Fuelling System confirms, you may experience high perspiration situations where the intake of TORQ Chew units should be limited in favour of TORQ Energy Drink consumption to address the body’s fluid and electrolyte requirements. On the other hand, in low perspiration environments, TORQ Chew and our other concentrated TORQ Units such as TORQ Gel and TORQ Bar should represent a more significant proportion of your fuel intake. As long as 2-3 TORQ Units per hour is maintained in every scenario, fuelling will be optimal, you just need to drink more of your fuelling units if perspiration rates are high and less when lower.
Low Fat: Another nutritional fundamental is that an energy product MUST be low fat for it to deliver the carbohydrate contained within it quickly and efficiently and although this is not a problem linked to energy drinks and gels on the market, manufacturers seem to struggle to keep the fat content low in their energy bars/chews. This is principally because it’s exceptionally difficult to make a tasty low fat energy bar and also because seemingly nutrition brands’ principles and common sense literally fly out of the window when confronted with the dilemma that the public might be more interested in purchasing a chocolate/yoghurt coated energy bar, or a bar containing nuts even if it doesn’t work properly.
Organic Certification & and Cold-Pressed: TORQ Chew is cold-pressed from just 4 Soil Association Certified Organic ingredients. These raw ingredients are cold-pressed together to form the TORQ Chew without the need to cook or bake. This innovative product could not be more natural.
Gluten Free & Vegan Formulation: TORQ Chew is a gluten-free fuelling product. The formulation for TORQ Chew is also entirely plant-based, so is suitable for Vegans.
No Flavours and No Colours: Under exercise stress, digestion is affected as blood is diverted to the working muscles and any solutes added to a product will raise its osmolality unnecessarily, making it harder to digest. So, irrespective of the health debate surrounding the consumption of artificial ingredients, during exercise is certainly not the time to take them. Therefore, no flavouring is added to TORQ Bar (we just utilise the natural flavours already present in the ingredients) and we don’t use colours (artificial or natural), because they simply don’t need to be in the product.
No Artificial Sweeteners: For the same reasons as highlighted above, we don’t believe in the use of artificial sweeteners like Aspatame, Acsulfame-K, Saccharine and Sucralose. These artificial sweeteners are 100’s of times sweeter than sugar and Aspartame/Acsulfame-K are particularly controversial with regard to long-term health. They offer no performance benefit at all and our stance is the same with these as with colours and preservatives – if they don’t need to be included in our formulations for functional reasons, why include them?
Keep TORQ Chew Warm: TORQ Chew is cold-pressed from 4 organic ingredients and is particularly sensitive to temperature. It’s a very soft product in the summer or in warmer climates, but in cooler conditions, if left in the pocket of a bag for instance, it can become overly firm. The solution is simple and that is to keep it next to your body – a temperature that gives TORQ Chew the perfect chewy consistency. If for any reason you don’t get on with TORQ Chew, try our very soft TORQ Bar.
The research is clear, fuelling with carbohydrate and ensuring that you consume a Recovery Drink immediately after exercise will not only boost performance and assist in the overall recovery process, but it will also support your immune system, leaving you less vulnerable to infection.
