Top Features of the Torq Energy Drink Powder - 1.5kg
- Optimal carbohydrate blend
- With electrolytes
- Natural flavours
- No colours, artificial sweeteners or preservatives
Ingredients (Natural Lemon - Other flavours vary):
Maltodextrin (Glucose Ploymers 60%), Fructose (30%), Citric Acid, Natural Flavour (2%), Electrolytes (Sodium Chloride, Calcium Lactate, Potassium Chloride, Magnesium Carbonate)
More available carbohydrate
This drink's ingredient matrix has been brought in line with some of the most recent research into energy drink formulation. Maltodextrin and fructose are combined in a 2:1 ratio to provide significantly more carbohydrates than maltodextrin alone, helping you to sustain a higher pace for longer.
Torq uses a Maltodextrin:Fructose mix which allows your body to absorb 40% more carbohydrate than usual at up to 90 grams an hour!
THE TORQ FUELLING SYSTEM™ (2-3 TORQ UNITS PER HOUR)
Each of the following TORQ fuelling products represents 1 TORQ unit:
500ml Torq Energy (@6%), Carbs - 30g, Torq unit - 1
1 x Torq Gel (45g), carbs - 30g, Torq unit - 1
1 x Torq Bar (45g), carbs - 30g, Torq unit - 1
Research demonstrates that individuals can absorb up to 3 TORQ UNITS per hour whilst exercising, however we recommend that newcomers and smaller individuals start with 2 TORQ UNITS initially and experiment with higher doses over time. In warmer environmental conditions, or during higher intensity exercise when perspiration rates are high, we recommend that you lean towards a greater intake of TORQ Energy Drink units. During cooler conditions when hydration is less of an issue, more of your fuelling units should be delivered via TORQ Gels and Bars.

Magazine reviews for Torq Energy Drink Powder - 1.5kg
Review from 220 Triathlon
The latest release from the midlands fitness and nutrition collective Torq is the natural Vanilla pod energy drink. It's a complex carbohydrate fuel with a 6% carbohydrate mix of maltodextrin (glucose polymers) and fructose (2:1 ratio), along with a healthy balance of essential electrolyte minerals. Many independent studies have shown that the 2:1 ratio of maltodextrin and fructose makes more carbohydrate readily available for the muscles, as opposed to using maltodextrin or fructose on its own. Servings that make up 500ml, 750mm and 1ltr of drink provide 30,45 or 60g of carbohydrate, making it ultra easy to adjust to your type of workout or race. The Vanilla flavour is a mild and refreshing taste, so it's an ideal choice if you're looking for a well formulated energy drink and especially if you're looking for one that lacks colouring, artificial sweeteners or flavourings. On that note alone, this energy drink certainly gets our vote.
No nasties, refreshing and a good combination of electrolytes.
Review from Cycling Plus
Torq combines both carbohydrate and electrolytes to a offer pleasantly flavoured easy-to-mix drink. This natural mix contains no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives and is suitable for vegans as it doesn't contain dairy. There's no wheat or nuts for that matter so its perfect for those with allergies too. For a 500ml bottle you'll need two scoops of powder for a six percent carb' mix. Once mixed, and despite the strong smell, the pink grapefruit flavour was palatable even in the heat.
Light tasting, natural drink that's easy to get down
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
If you are doing a high intensity workout then you should be using this as a supplement to your usual workout diet.
Hope this helps
Then continue throughout the 2hr workout.
100g of the poweder contain 91g carbs; 1l drink contains 6% carbs. that's what i used to calculate that you get 22,75 litres out of 1,5kg powder
If you use the suggested 4 x 25g scoops per litre, you will get 15 bottles.
It should not be fizzy when you mix it, except for a few seconds if you shake air into your mix.
About 4 scoops to a litre, so it'll last a fair while.
You're meant to do four scoops per litre to reach a six per cent concentration - ideal for full-on riding/excercise.
Four scoops, according to Torq is 65g. So a tub would be 23 litres. I reckon on a recent South Downs Way epic I got more than that out of a tub - maybe 50 per cent more (30-35 litres).
The 6 per cent solution delivers 60g of carbs per litre, and you're meant to drink a litre per hour in heavy excercise. And then top up to your kg body weight in g (ie I weigh 80kg, therefore I needed to top up 20g of carbs from bars and gels on top of the 60 I was getting from the drink).
If this is low content could you give a suitable alternative? Thanks.
that's what it says on the tub
so 1 bar, 1 drink (500ml), 1 Gel = 30 grams carbs
