As explained in the TorQ website: Designed for easy ingestion, digestion, and optimal fuel delivery (carbohydrates + electrolytes) for endurance athletes. Better yet, we strong feel these are the best tasting energy gels on the market! Without taste, there is no performance!
Each TORQ gel provides 30 grams of multiple-transportable carbohydrates (1 TORQ Unit), which is a significantly greater concentration than many brands on the market today featured in larger heavier packages. The TORQ Fueling System suggests consuming 2-3 TORQ Units per hour by taking on board our energy drink (TORQ Energy) along with the other more concentrated TORQ Units displayed in the table below, of which the TORQ Gel is one. The higher your perspiration rates, the more TORQ Energy you will need to consume relative to our concentrated fueling units and when perspiration rates are lower, more concentrated TORQ Units should be consumed and less energy drink. The choice of which concentrated TORQ Units to consume is entirely yours. TORQ Gel, TORQ Bar and TORQ Chew are all optimized with multiple-transportable carbohydrates, so the only difference between them is the texture; Smooth, Soft or Chewy.
