Science In Sport Beta Fuel



Developed to deliver maximum carbohydrate in a 2:1 ratio, Beta Fuel 15 x 84g offers delicious fruity flavour and performance.

Beta Fuel mixed to concentration is 80 grams carbohydrate (2:1 maltodextrin: fructose), 20 mmol/L sodium and 500 ml of fluid per serving, with the fluid limit gastrointestinal distress.

The body's fuelling requirements for long endurance events (over 2.5 hours) are 60-90g carbohydrate per hour. Beta Fuel can be used to meet these refuelling demands in an isotonic solution. 

A rate limiting factor of exogenous carbohydrate utilization during exercise is the transportation of the nutrients across the intestinal wall. Once the sodium-dependent transporter, used to transport maltodextrin, is saturated at 60 g.h additional carbohydrate can be absorbed through another transporter, GLUT5, used to transport fructose.

Beta Fuel is tested under the Informed Sport programme.

Recommended Usage: Mix one serving (84 g) of Beta Fuel with 500 ml of fluid and drink little & often during exercise to meet fuelling requirements.
