Torq Energy is a drink that has been carefully formulated to satisfy the energy needs of performance athletes and physically active people. It contains carbohydrate to top-up your energy reserves and replaces the five electrolytes that you lose through sweat. The formulation uses a 2:1 blend of maltodextrin and fructose for increased carbohydrate delivery and utilisation. You get an instant energy hit from the maltodextrin, then a sustained energy release from the fructose.
You can use Torq Energy as part of the Torq Fuelling System. Mix a 33g sachet with 500ml of water to create 1 Torq Unit. Research shows that individuals can absorb up to 3 Torq Units per hour whilst exercising, although Torq recommends that newcomers and smaller individuals start with 2 Units and experiment with higher doses over time. In warm conditions, or during high intensity exercise, when your perspiration rate is high, they suggest that you lean towards a greater intake of Torq Energy Drink. In cool conditions when hydration is less of an issue, more of your fuelling units should be delivered via Torq Gels and Bars.
