Not familiar with VFuel? It is the world’s first endurance gel that includes digestible (read: fructose free) carbohydrates in combination with saturated fats (medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil). Say good bye to gastro-intestinal upset and extend the longevity of your fuel in training and racing.
You might remember our article “Sports Gels: Fat Adaptation and Practical Considerations“, where I reviewed VFuel. Here’s a recap:
The addition of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil is fantastic as fats act to moderate the blood sugar response and therefore longevity of the fuel. The inclusion of taurine is beneficial as amino acids act to delay the central nervous system fatigue that so often comes with endurance exercise. The high carbohydrate value is still something to be moderated,so please trial this in training until your have your race plan developed. The best use of VFuel is for the strategic use on race day if your event involves period of high intensity (i.e. attacking a hill, breaking away from a pack, the final 5km of an Ironman).
VFuel comes in six flavours:
- Mountain Berry
- Peach Cobler
- Cool Citrus
- Fudge Brownie
- Maple Bacon (yes, you read that right)
VFuel comes in boxes of 24 in single flavours, or a mixed box of all six. Grab yours here: bit.ly/tnnonline via our Online Store for just $99.95 (just over $4/gel).
To allow you to test six VFuel Flavours and determine your favourite, we also have sample packs available. Our January free postage does not apply to sample packs. Pick up is from Brighton East, Melbourne only. Please add postage if you would like yours delivered.
