WORLD-LEADING OPTIMISED BETA FUEL IN A UNIQUE CHEW BAR

Our Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Chews deliver scientifically superior fuel in unique and satisfying chews. Part of an entire world-leading fuelling solution range that includes drinks and gels, they are super easy to consume and deliver 46 grams of carbohydrate to improve and maintain optimum performance.

WHY YOU SHOULD USE BETA FUEL DUAL SOURCE ENERGY GEL CHEWS

As an endurance athlete exerting your body for periods typically longer than two hours, you need to take in between 80-120g of carbohydrate per hour. Our Science in Sport Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Gel Chews deliver 46g of fast carbs in a convenient and tasty chew, which have been optimised with a new ratio that enhances power output and increases carbohydrate usage efficiency without gastrointestinal discomfort.

NEW 1:0.8 RATIO REPLACES 2:1 RATIO

  • A 1:0.8 ratio of glucose to fructose increases the percentage of ingested carbohydrate that is oxidized (known as efficiency) from 62% to 74% when compared with a ratio of 2:1
  • A 1:0.8 ratio of glucose to fructose reduces self-reported symptoms of stomach fullness when compared with a ratio of 2:1

THE SCIENCE BEHIND BETA FUEL HAS EVOLVED

Through our Performance Solutions team, we've worked closely with elite athletes in the research and development of the new Beta Fuel range to bring you a scientifically superior fuel in a range of formats that allow you to use +17% more carbohydrate (O’Brien et al, 2013).

  • A ratio of 1:0.8 enhances exogenous CHO oxidation compared with 2:1 ratio by 17% (O’Brien et al) and 10% (O’Brien et al)
  • A ratio of 1:0.8 enhances mean power output during 10 maximal sprint efforts by 3% compared with 2:1 ratio (O’Brien et al)
  • A ratio of 1:0.8 increases % of ingested CHO that was oxidised (efficiency) from 62% (2:1) to 74% (1:0.8) (O’Brien et al)
  • A ratio of 1:0.8 reduces symptoms of stomach fullness and nausea when compared with a ratio of 2:1 (O’Brien et al)

HOW AND WHEN TO USE BETA FUEL DUAL SOURCE ENERGY CHEWS

Each chew bar contains 46 grams of carbohydrate. Depending on your sport or event, you should aim to consume 1-3 chew bars every hour during exertion to reach an 80g-120g target intake. In some circumstances, such as cold weather, it may be necessary to consume more. Simply tear open and remove the chew bars from the packet. They can be consumed as a bar or broken into individual chews, which each chew containing approximately 7 grams of carbohydrate.

  • Use alone or combine with other energy supplements from the Beta Fuel range to achieve hourly 80-120g carbohydrate intake.

FAQ's

What is Science in Sport Beta Fuel?

What is Science in Sport Beta Fuel made of?

The carbohydrates in Beta Fuel come from stomach-friendly maltodextrin and fructose. Beta Fuel also contains flavourings with no artificial sweeteners.

How will Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Chews give me more energy?

Beta Fuel Energy Chews deliver 46g of carbohydrate to help you hit the recommended intake of 80-120g per hour during endurance exercise.

How does Science in Sport Beta Fuel Energy Chews fit into my overall fuelling plan?

As an endurance athlete our Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Chews can be used on their own to fulfil your fuelling requirements. However, our Beta Fuel range, which also includes the Dual Source Energy Gel, Dual Source Energy Gel + Nootropics, and Dual Source Energy Drink can be combined to ensure you easily hit the recommended fuelling target of 80-120 grams of carbohydrate every hour.

What makes Beta Fuel Energy Chews better than eating regular foods such as a banana, for example?

Beta Fuel Energy Chews are satisfying to chew and are designed to be absorbed quickly into your gut for fast energy, whereas some solid foods take longer to digest because they have more fat and fibre and can cause bloating and discomfort during exercise.
