The objective of an energy gel is to deliver a high amount of calories, in a small volume, as quickly as possible with the least amount of energy required. KODA Energy Gels are a carbohydrate food in a semi-fluid, liquid gel form that can provide a high calorie component in a small volume.
The KODA Energy Gels are pre-digested in their manufacture and closely resemble the consistency of chyme (chyme is the semi-fluid form that all solid food is converted into in the stomach during digestion). The energy gel enters the digestive system in a form the stomach already recognises, effectively minimising the energy required to metabolise it. An important consideration when you want every bit of energy to be utilised by the active muscles and not by the digestive system.
The KODA Energy Gel has been formulated to go down easily on its own or with a small amount of fluid. It has been formulated to have a minimal sensory impact. The formulation is very clean, with a smooth consistency that doesn’t stick to the roof of your mouth, or cause irritation to the back of the throat and doesn’t leave an unpleasant aftertaste. All crucial factors given emotions and senses are heightened when heart rate is elevated.
With KODA Energy Gels you don’t get the spikes and crashes associated with sugary/powdered drinks.
Carbohydrates are what make our bodies tick and the natural reserves we carry can run out very quickly after periods of exertion, leading to fatigue and loss of control. With KODA Energy Gel these carbohydrate reserves receive a “top up”, meaning your muscles and mind continue to perform at their peak – even after you’ve put yourself through your paces.
