HIGH-CARB SPORTS DRINK
The body can use up to 90g of carbs per hour, but this amount can upset the stomach before it can be absorbed. It’s a problem Maurten claims to have solved with its new sports drink powder (Drink Mix 320, £38 for 14 sachets, plus delivery). It forms a jellylike substance on contact with stomach acid, so the carbs (80g per 500ml) can reach the intestine without affecting the stomach. Our testers felt turbocharged.
