OTE CHOCO­LATE SOYA

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE - ote­s­ports.com

£42.50 OTE have pleased ve­gan and veg­e­tar­ian triath­letes with this ex­tremely tasty choco­late num­ber. In fact, it’s one of the most de­li­cious re­cov­ery drinks we’ve tried. So, de­light­ful on the palate, but what about ex­hausted mus­cles? Each 52g serv­ing pro­vides 18.6g carbs, just 0.5g of fat and 25g of es­sen­tial pro­teins in­clud­ing leucine, one of the key amino acids in­volved in mus­cle pro­tein syn­the­sis. But as its or­der in the in­gre­di­ents list high­lights (near the end) its con­cen­tra­tion lev­els are lower in soy than, say, whey. The im­pact this has on mus­cle re­pair is im­pos­si­ble to judge in real life. What’s clearer is that it fea­tures the nine amino acids the body can’t pro­duce by it­self, but there are con­cerns, and stud­ies, that soy can im­pact a per­son’s thy­roid func­tion. But the lev­els talked about shouldn’t put you off.
