Product Description

  • Optimal carbohydrate blend (2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose)
  • With 5 key electrolytes
  • Natural flavours
  • No colours, artificial sweeteners or preservatives

TORQ Energy is a naturally flavoured high carbohydrate energy drink, containing no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. This product has been painstakingly formulated so that it delivers TORQ's unique blend of carbohydrate and electrolytes to the working muscles through a drink that is lightly flavoured, refreshing and most importantly NATURAL.

2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose: This drink’s ingredient matrix has been brought in line with some of the most recent research into energy drink formulation. Two published studies* in 2005 offered quite staggering results when Maltodextrin (a long-chain glucose polymer) was mixed with Fructose (fruit sugar) at a 2:1 ratio and since then, many more studies have demonstrated similar benefits*. Although Maltodextrin alone has been proven to be considerably more effective than Fructose in isolation, when the two are mixed in this 2:1 ratio, significantly more carbohydrate is made available for use. These studies have demonstrated that a 2:1 Maltodextin to Fructose mix caused athletes to absorb and use 40% more carbohydrate compared with consuming maltodextrin alone. What are the benefits? Quite simply, the increased availability of carbohydrate means that you will be able to sustain a higher pace for longer using TORQ energy, making this product the most advanced formulation available to endurance athletes on the market today.

Electrolytes: TORQ energy contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should some include none at all.

Natural Flavours and No Colours or Preservatives: Under exercise stress, digestion is affected as blood is diverted to the working muscles, so irrespective of the health debate surrounding the consumption of artificial ingredients, during exercise is certainly not the time to take them. Therefore we only use natural flavours that the body can recognise and break down easily and we don't use colours or preservatives (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.

Energy Drinks Guide

What are energy drinks?

Energy drinks either give you a much needed boost of power during your ride or help you recover quickly afterwards. They are simple to use – simply dissolve the powder with water to the required measurements and you’re ready to go. It’s handy to keep a bottle of energy drink on your bike during a long ride.

Who needs energy drinks?

If you’re riding over 4 hours, it’s definitely a good idea to try energy products. They are formulated to give you specific amounts of carbohydrates and protein, but also give you the urge to drink more, keeping you hydrated.

What are the choices?

Energy drinks come in a wide range of flavours, fruity, exotic or interesting. There are lots of brands to choose from, so it’s really a case of finding the one that works best for you and also tastes the nicest.

What should I buy with it?

A bottle and cage set-up for your bike is ideal for keeping your energy drink close at hand. It’s not advisable to use energy drinks in a hydration pack as the sugar content will make it incredibly difficult to clean. Most brands have accompanying bottles with the measurements already on the side, so you can mix your drink and put it straight on your bike.

Anything else?

Try any energy product out on practice rides in case it has an adverse effect on you or you find that you don’t like the taste.
