TORQ energy NATURAL is made from an ingredient called maltodextrin, often referred to as a glucose polymer. A glucose polymer's molecular profile optimises the long-term energy providing properties of complex carbohydrates, without the need to consume bulky starch-rich foods. These bulky foods take a longer time to digest because they contain fibre, an important, but metabolically useless nutrient. They also fill and bloat your stomach making movement and sport in particular more difficult. TORQ energy NATURAL, when diluted with the correct amount of water, delivers a sustained supply of glucose to the working muscle. This product can also be added to food to boost its carbohydrate content. 4 level scoops of TORQ energy NATURAL mixed into a cup of soup will be barely noticable, yet it will have increased its carbohydrate content to that of a large bowl of pasta! This makes TORQ energy NATURAL ideal for carbohydrate loading or aiding recovery between heavy bouts of exercise.

TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED is a naturally flavoured high carbohydrate energy drink, containing no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED 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.
This flavoured version of TORQ energy offers all the benefits of TORQ energy NATURAL with a number of significant added qualities:
More available carbohydrate: This drink’s ingredient matrix has been brought in line with some of the most recent research into energy drink formulation. Two published studies1,2 in 2005 offered quite staggering results when Maltodextrin (TORQ energy NATURAL) was mixed with Fructose (fruit sugar) at a 2:1 ratio. 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 burn 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 NATURAL FLAVOURED, making this product the most advanced formulation available to endurance athletes on the market today.
Electrolytes: TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the electrolytes lost through perspiration and to preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations – some include none at all.
Ready to drink: Perhaps a small benefit for sure, but if you’re going to add flavour to your unflavoured TORQ energy NATURAL, this formulation will save you time. Just add the appropriate measure of product to your water bottle, give it a shake and its ready to drink.
So, why would you ever buy unflavoured TORQ energy NATURAL after reading about our flavoured products? The benefit of TORQ energy NATURAL is its simplicity. If you don’t like flavoured products and want a neutral-tasting beverage, TORQ energy NATURAL is as effective at providing energy as any other product available on the market today. It can also be added to food as an invisible calorie to boost the carbohydrate content. It is not recommended that you mix TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED on its own above 9% carbohydrate or you will overdose on electrolytes, so during cooler weather you can add TORQ energy NATURAL if you want to run a higher concentration.
