THE BEE’S KNEES

Runner's World (UK) - - Warm-ups -

Manuka honey is well known for its health prop­er­ties, but the fact that it con­sists of 80 per cent car­bo­hy­drate (from the sim­ple sug­ars fruc­tose and glu­cose) and 18 per cent wa­ter is what makes it the ideal base for a real-food en­ergy gel. Manuka Sport’s Bee-fit Gel (£1.99, manukas­port.com) blends honey with fruit juice and elec­trolytes, de­liv­er­ing 27.5g of carbs per 45g serv­ing. The best bit? The mor­eish flavour. Our tester even poured one over her bowl of por­ridge on race morn­ing. You know, for the buzz.
