TORQ energy provides 30 grams of multiple-transportable carbohydrates (1 TORQ Unit) per 500ml and whilst offering an optimal source of fuel, this product will also supply fluid and electrolytes to maintain the body’s hydration requirements and homeostatic balance. The TORQ Fuelling System suggests consuming 2-3 TORQ Units per hour by taking on board TORQ Energy along with the other more concentrated TORQ Units displayed in the table below. The higher your perspiration rates, the more TORQ Energy you will need relative to TORQ’s other fuelling products. Again, this interaction between TORQ’s fuelling products is explained fully HERE and we also discuss this in more detail later on this page.
TORQ Energy is available in single use sachets, to be added to 500ml of water, 500g tubs (makes 17 X 500ml) or 1.5Kg pouches (makes 50 X 500ml). Both the tubs and pouches are supplied with a scoop and the prescribed dose is 1 level scoop per 250ml of water (2 scoops for 500ml, 3 scoops for 750ml and 4 scoops for 1 litre).
TORQ Energy Tonicity Data (Osmol/Kg): Natural Orange Flavour: 0.218 // Natural Lemon Flavour: 0.222 // Natural Lime & Lemon Flavour: 0.218 // Natural Pink Grapefruit Flavour: 0.211 // Natural Blackcurrant Flavour: 0.223 // Natural Vanilla Pod Flavour: 0.211 // Tonicity of Blood: 0.29
Electrolytes: TORQ energy contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.
Natural Flavours and No Colours: Under exercise stress, digestion is affected as blood is diverted to the working muscles and any solutes added to a product will raise its osmolality unnecessarily making it harder to digest, so irrespective of the health debate surrounding the consumption of artificial ingredients, during exercise is certainly not the time to take them. Therefore, we only use natural flavours that the body can recognise and break down easily and we don’t use colours (artificial or natural), because they simply don’t need to be in the product.
