SiS Beta Fuel Gel
WORLD-LEADING ENERGY GEL OPTIMISED WITH A NEW CARBOHYDRATE RATIO
Part of an entire world-leading fuelling solution range that includes drinks and chews, our Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Gel is optimised with a brand new 1:0.8 ratio of 40g carbohydrate to enhance your power output, increase your body’s carbohydrate usage efficiency, and limit gastrointestinal discomfort to deliver a scientifically superior fuel.
WHY YOU SHOULD USE BETA FUEL DUAL SOURCE ENERGY GEL
As an endurance athlete (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 Gel delivers an optimised 40g of carbohydrate in a single, convenient fuelling solution with minimal risk of GI discomfort that enables you to maintain optimal performance.
NEW 1:0.8 RATIO REPLACES 2:1 RATIO
- A 1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin to fructose increases the percentage of ingested carbohydrate that is oxidized (known as efficiency) from 62% to 74% when compared with a ratio of 2:1
- A 1:0.8 ratio of maltodextrin to fructose reduces self-reported symptoms of stomach fullness when compared with a ratio of 2:1
THE SCIENCE BEHIND BETA FUEL HAS EVOLVED
Through our Performance Solutions team, we have worked closely with elite athletes in the research and development of the new Beta Fuel range to bring you a scientifically superior fuel in a range of formats that allow you to use +17% more carbohydrate (O’Brien et al, 2013).
- A ratio of 1:0.8 enhances exogenous CHO oxidation compared with 2:1 ratio by 17% (O’Brien et al) and 10% (O’Brien et al)
- A ratio of 1:0.8 enhances mean power output during 10 maximal sprint efforts by 3% compared with 2:1 ratio (O’Brien et al)
- A ratio of 1:0.8 increases % of ingested CHO that was oxidised (efficiency) from 62% (2:1) to 74% (1:0.8) (O’Brien et al)
- A ratio of 1:0.8 reduces symptoms of stomach fullness and nausea when compared with a ratio of 2:1 (O’Brien et al)
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
HOW AND WHEN TO USE BETA FUEL DUAL SOURCE ENERGY GEL
Each gel contains 40 grams of carbohydrate. Depending on your sport or event, you should aim to consume 1-3 gels every hour during exertion to reach an 80g-120g target intake. In some circumstances, such as cold weather, it may be necessary to consume more. Simply tear off the top of the packaging and squeeze the contents into your mouth as and when required.
- Consume directly from packaging
- Combine with other energy supplements from the Beta Fuel range to achieve hourly 80-120g carbohydrate intake

What is Science in Sport Beta Fuel?
Our Beta Fuel is a world-leading fuelling supplement that enables endurance athletes to maintain optimum carbohydrate levels for increased performance.
What is Science in Sport Beta Fuel made of?
The carbohydrates in Beta Fuel come from stomach-friendly maltodextrin and fructose. Beta Fuel also contains flavourings with no artificial sweeteners.
How will Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Gel give me more energy?
Beta Fuel Energy Gel delivers 40g of carbohydrate in a single serving to help you hit the recommended intake of 80-120g per hour during endurance exercise. We have optimised this 40g of carbohydrates in our Beta Fuel Energy Gel with a brand new 1:0.8 ratio (maltodextrin to fructose) that increases your body’s carbohydrate usage efficiency, which in turn enhances your power output and limits gastrointestinal distress.
How does Science in Sport Beta Fuel Energy Gel fit into my overall fuelling plan?
As an endurance athlete our Beta Fuel Dual Source Energy Gel can be used on its own to fulfil your fuelling requirements. However, our 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.
What makes Beta Fuel Energy Gel better than eating regular foods such as a banana, for example?
Beta Fuel Energy Gel is designed to be absorbed quickly into your gut for fast energy, whereas some solid foods take longer to digest because they have more fat and fibre and can cause bloating and discomfort during exercise.
Does the Science in Sport Beta Fuel range use natural flavourings?
Yes. Our Beta Fuel range of carbohydrate supplements use natural flavours and are free from colours and preservatives.
Will Beta Fuel Energy Gel fit in my cycle jersey pockets?
Yes! Beta Fuel Energy Gels are lightweight, compact and designed to fit in jersey pockets, cycle bags and waist packs. What’s more they’re pressure-tested so you don’t have to worry about them leaking or the packaging tearing or bursting during exercise.
Has Science in Sport Beta Fuel been tested for banned substances?
Absolutely. Like all our sports supplements, our Beta Fuel range is tested under the Informed Sport programme and does not contain any banned substance. Informed Sport is a global quality assurance and supplement certification programme for sports supplements.
