Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of long duration activities. Energy Chews contain carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.

Should I use GU Energy Chews instead of GU Energy Gel?

We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane Energy Gel) is the ideal source of fuel for an athlete while training or racing, but just in case you crave something to sink your teeth into, we’ve created GU Energy Chews. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chewable form.

Do GU Energy Chews have caffeine?
The Strawberry and Black Cherry flavours have 20mg of caffeine per serving, and Raspberry has 40mg, while Blueberry Pomegranate, Orange, and Watermelon are caffeine free.

How do you eat GU Energy Chews?
GU Energy Chews have a perforated strip at the top that allows you to squeeze out one Chomp at a time. Remember, 4 Chews equal 1 serving.

How many packets of GU Energy Chews do I need?
1 packet of Chews contains 1 serving, or 4 chews, which will provide enough fuel for 30 to 45 minutes. That said, all athletes are different and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Remember to hydrate along the way!

How long do GU Energy Chews take to work?
Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chews should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.

Are Chews safe for children?
Chews are safe for children to eat, but remember that the Strawberry, Black Cherry, and Raspberry flavours contain caffeine.

Are Chews gluten free?
As with all GU Energy Labs products, Chews are gluten free.

Are Chews dairy free?
Yes.

Is GU Chews Kosher?
GU Energy Gel, Roctane Energy Gel, GU Hydration Drink Mix, GU Hydration Drink Tabs, Roctane Energy Drink Mix, Roctane Electrolyte Capsules, and GU Recovery Drink Mix are all certified Kosher. Chews are not.
