Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to meet the demands of all types of activity.
Each 80-calorie serving (four pieces) contains carbohydrates that can help maximize absorption, increase carbohydrate utilization, and diminish stomach distress, for energy that kicks in quickly and stays with you.
GU Energy Chews are crafted to supply both energy and key nutrients like electrolytes and amino acids to keep you feeling strong and energized.
Delicious, mouthwatering flavours help you stick to your nutrition plan, so you can keep going. Energy Chews have similar nutrients per serving to the original GU Energy Gels, delivering the energy you need in chewable, bite-sized pieces.
Carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways that can help maximize absorption, increase carbohydrate utilization, and diminish stomach distress, for energy that kicks in quickly and stays with you
Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat that aids in hydration by maintaining fluid balance
While the consistency of an Energy Gel is designed to be absorbed as efficiently as possible, we’ve created GU Energy Chews just in case you want to sink your teeth into something else. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, just in a chewable form.
A sleeve of Chews has two servings, and one serving is 80 calories. Each Chew has 20 calories, so one serving is four Chews. We recommend eating one serving every 45 minutes. That said, everyone is different, and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Remember to hydrate along the way!
Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer for your body to feel the effects than an Energy Gel. It also depends on what you’ve eaten before and on the contents of your digestive tract. On an empty stomach, the nutritional benefit of Chews can hit your bloodstream in as little as 10-15 minutes.
