Science in Sport Beta Fuel Gels Dual Source Energy Gel, Orange Flavour, 40 g of Carbs Per Pack, 60 ml Pack (30 Pack)
About this deal
For training and competition of 2 – 2.5 hours or more, SiS Beta Fuel is the next generation of endurance fuelling. These results have never been seen before and change everything we thought we knew about endurance fuelling guidelines. The new enhanced SiS Beta Fuel formula allows you to increase your carbohydrate intake to around 80-120 grams per hour because of the 1:0.8 maltodextrin and fructose ratio, aiding your performance by minimising gastrointestinal distress and enabling faster absorption. Luke Rowe is of the same opinion. “Like everything in the sport, it [nutrition] has evolved massively. The biggest change is the knowledge behind what the individual athlete needs. And then the quality of the product is clear to see, it tastes better, and it’s better for you.” Tsintzas, O. K., Williams, C., Wilson, W. & Burrin, J. (1996). Influence of carbohydrate supplementation early in exercise on endurance running capacity. Medicine and science in sports and exercise, 28(11), 1373-1379. We recommend consuming 50g (3 scoops) with 500ml of water every 45-60 min of exercise or you can consume up to 4 servings per day with or between meals as part of a carbohydrate loading strategy in the run up to an event. Once prepared consume within 24 hours. What our customer’s say:
Consume during prolonged exercise to meet your fuelling requirements. Fuelling strategy – 2-hour event at 80-120g of carbohydrate per hour At almost twelve stone and standing six foot 4, the Grenadiers’ exciting young British talent has a lot of body to fuel. And like his fellow riders he eats a lot. He must. Many energy supplements promise big, deliver little and come with temporary but distracting side effects, which can be all-consuming for a cyclist in the saddle. Whatever Morton and his team conceived, it had to be isotonic with a neutral pH to increase the ability to digest it and absorb the carbohydrate with minimal feelings of gastrointestinal discomfort.The new Beta Fuel Powder solution contains 80 grams of carbohydrate at this 1:0.8 ratio, in a neutral pH formula that maintains the signature isotonic format to minimise gastrointestinal issues. Relaunched in June of 2021, it now has a brand new optimised 1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin to fructose, that when compared to traditional 2:1 ratio, is proven to enhance power output, increase carbohydrate oxidation efficiency, and limits gastrointestinal discomfort. Although nutrition can be a challenge for a lot of runners, it’s key for performance. It is suggested that during endurance exercise (more than 2.5 hours) 80-120 grams of carbohydrate per hour should be consumed. These results have never been seen before and change everything we thought we knew about endurance fuelling guidelines – and the performance potential in elite endurance racing. Who is SiS Beta Fuel for? As an endurance athlete our Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Gel can be used on its own to fulfil your fuelling requirements. However, the SiS Beta Fuel range, which also includes the Dual Source Energy Gel + Nootropics, the Dual Source Energy Drink, and Dual Source Energy Chew Bar, can be combined to ensure you easily hit the recommended fuelling target of 80-120 grams of carbohydrate every hour.

Energy Drink Powder – 80g carbohydrate with neutral pH and isotonic formulation to minimise GI distress O’Brien, W. J., & Rowlands, D. S. (2011).

Before SiS Beta Fuel, the only isotonic energy gels on the market contained around 20 grams of carbohydrate, so many athletes hold firm with what they’ve always used. But Beta Fuel gel has 40 grams. Significantly, in studies carried out by SiS, it was discovered that athletes could tolerate 120 grams of carbohydrate per hour, substantially higher than the 90 grams previously recommended. That’s only three SiS Beta Fuel Gels per hour compared with six to achieve the same intake.
Loving the Beta fuel getting me through the hard long ironman sessions” – Tim Don 11/03/2022 Nutritional comparison per serving
As an endurance athlete, meaning your events typically last more than two hours, you need to take in between 80-120g of carbohydrate per hour. The Science in Sport Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Drink delivers an optimised 80g of carbohydrate in a single, convenient isotonic fuelling solution with minimal risk of GI discomfort that enables you to maintain optimal performance. The 120g carbohydrate intake can be achieved from our drink, gel or jelly chew, or any combination of the three The right combination of nutrition for running is a common challenge for most. As a runner, we have all been there, when your stomach starts churning you cannot focus on enjoying your run whether this is during training or a race. The SiS Beta Fuel Gels and Chews can also be used for running, preference will come down to the individual with some people relying on gels, whilst others prefer more ‘food’ like textures, such as the chews. The new Beta Fuel range has a change in the ratio of maltodextrin to fructose to 1:0.8. In comparison to the (still highly scientifically impressive) 2:1 ratio, the 1:0.8 ratio has been proven to:The Beta Fuel powder is our scientifically superior fuelling option designed for endurance providing high carbohydrate in an easily digestible formula. With an optimised ratio of Maltodextrin to Fructose (1:0.8), Beta Fuel provides 80g of carbohydrate in a single convenient isotonic formular with minimal risk of GI discomfort to maintain optimal performance.

So, in 2018, SiS Beta Fuel was developed to enable us to increase carbohydrate oxidation to more than 60 grams per hour and to achieve that, we combined another form of carbohydrate, which has a different transporter, fructose. Because fructose has a different transporter than glucose, a dual source formulation allows for greater carbohydrate delivery to our muscles during exercise, therefore increasing how much carbohydrate we can use. For the INEOS Grenadiers team, SiS Beta Fuel has been a gamechanger. Originally launched by Science in Sport in 2018, it famously powered Chris Froome’s sensational 80km solo ride on Stage 19 of the 2018 Giro D’Italia. Science in Sport call it scientifically superior. And it is. The new SiS Beta Fuel range is leading a revolution in endurance fuelling. Already a favourite of INEOS Grenadiers, the team has been instrumental in testing and developing the new formula since 2020, fuelling Tao Geoghegan Hart to his first Grand Tour victory in the Giro that year.
The most staple product used by the Grenadiers will be found in their drinks bottles. Beta Fuel 80 is an isotonic drinks powder that delivers a massive 80 grams of carbohydrate. Other products from the range are no less popular, as Ben Swift attests. “I’d say my favourite SiS product is the new Beta Fuel Nootropics Gel. I think it’s a really powerful gel. I like it, it’s something you feel work straight away and you feel the benefit from it.”Nootropics are substances that can enhance cognitive performance giving you that mental lift you might need. So, as well as 40 grams carbohydrate, the SiS Beta Fuel Gel with Nootropics contains 1 gram of the amino acid L-taurine, 250 milligrams of Cognizin® to enhance information processing and 200 milligrams of caffeine with 200 milligrams of L-theanine, the amino acid which has been shown to increase subjective feelings of alertness, while reducing feelings of ‘jitters’ that you get with caffeine alone. A great way of being able to access nutrition during running is using hydration vests. You can use these vests to carry water mixed with a SiS Beta Fuel Powder, in a flavour of your choice (Red Berry, Strawberry & Lime or Orange). The SiS Beta Fuel Powder also contains sodium which is key for staying hydrated. I have been testing out the new range of BETA Fuel energy products from UK brand Science in Sport. They are tasty, easy to take onboard, and a notable scientific development over their predecessors and many other energy products on the market. Here's the low-down… Not only will you not be enjoying yourself, but you also won’t be performing your best. Gastrointestinal issues during running vary between individuals but most have experienced some form of stomach issue. Energy powders allows us to ingest carbohydrate in an easy-to-consume liquid format within your bottle. It also gives a nicer flavour than water alone making your drink more palatable. It’s important to consider consuming carbohydrate for any exercise longer than 90 minutes, this is because naturally we can only store enough energy for this long (if we’re following a healthy balanced diet of course), after this we need to supplement our energy stores. Energy powders are a great option for this, especially if energy gels or solid food are not your favourite. Science in Sport Energy Powders GO Energy
