GU Energy Gel is specifically formulated to energize your body during exercise. Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress, is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great workout start to finish.

During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately. GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

It's a pretty good gel overall. The consistency wasn't too thick or too thin. The only reason, I didn't like it was the taste. The apple flavor was a bit too artificial tasting in my opinion. I had no cramps or gi upset and it provided good energy throughout the ride. I'll have to try out another flavor to give this brand a fair shot.

Some of the flavors are good

Some of the Gu tastte good. The only problem is trying to get it all out while riding, and the sticky aftermath. Other than that they have some really good flavors!!!

          First tried the gu energy gels when riding with a state MTb racer. It really pepped me up and helped me go an extra lap around the park. The expresso flavor is pretty accurate it wasn't a steamy foamy delicious shot of expresso but more like an expresso flavored cake frosting but not as heavy. I would recommend to any coffee fan.

          Salted Caramel, that is all. Tasty, ready to go and not weird tasting. Downside is all the wasteful wrappers that go everywhere. Oh well.

                I bought some not really knowing if I would use them. I had a couple in my backpack on a mountain bike ride and used one when I felt like I was about to pass out. I had not eaten much for lunch and I had an intense ride in the heat. After emptying the packet, I felt MUCH better in less than 5 minutes and was able to do a few more miles.

                  I find the Gu gels to be the easiest to eat while on a long strenuous ride. When you're breathing hard and need food, you don't want some thick gel that is going to take 8 oz. of water to wash down. These go down easy and the mint chocolate is delicious.

                  These keep me going after I hit the 10-mile mark on a rough ride, or on a hot ride in the summer. Undoes the cramping within about 10 minutes of ingesting them. I like the Vanilla Bean personally. I sometimes take them before I ride if I'm not totally "feeling it".
