TORQ Energy Organic has 2 main uses - as a neutral tasting energy drink and as a food supplement:
As a neutral tasting energy drink: TORQ Energy Organic is made from an ingredient called maltodextrin, often referred to as a glucose polymer. A glucose polymer's molecular profile optimises the long-term energy providing properties of complex carbohydrates, with low osmolality in the gut, without the need to consume bulky starch-rich foods. These bulky foods take a longer time to digest because they contain fibre, which is important to consume as part of a healthy balanced diet an important, but is a metabolically useless nutrient when it comes to fuelling performance whilst exercising. Fibrous foods also fill and bloat your stomach making movement and sport in particular more difficult.
TORQ Energy Organic, when diluted with the correct amount of water, delivers a sustained supply of glucose to the working muscle. The beauty of this product is that it's practically flavourless, so is ideal for people who usually like to drink water whilst exercising, but want to benefit from carbohydrate fuelling.
There is further information provided on how to use this product in combination with other, it's worth referring to the TORQ Fuelling Systemfound at www.torqfitness.co.uk/tfs, however as TORQ energy Natural Organic does not contain Fructose, energy delivery won't be as strong compared with our naturally flavoured TORQ Energy products and therefore we do recommend using the flavoured varieties of TORQ Energy to fuel your performance optimally rather than this product if possible. This is because 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose delivers up to 90grams of carbohydrate per hour compared with 60grams for Maltodextrin only. The flavoured TORQ Energy products also contain all 5 electrolytes, which this product doesn't.
To keep this in perspective though, if you achieve 60 grams of carbohydrate delivery per hour using this product, this is still a very good level of fuelling and comparable in performance to many other energy drinks on the market. With this information in mind, if following the TORQ Fuelling System, as the energy delivery isn't as strong with TORQ Energy Organic, you should therefore aim for 2 TORQ units per hour whilst using this product as opposed to 3 TORQ units per hour.
As a food supplement: This product can also be added to food to boost its carbohydrate content. 4 level scoops of TORQ Energy Organic mixed into a cup of soup will be barely noticeable, yet it will have increased its carbohydrate content to that of a large bowl of pasta! This makes TORQ Energy Organic ideal for carbohydrate loading or aiding recovery between heavy bouts of exercise.
This is why this product features as a very important component in the TORQ Recovery System too.
