Introducing the 15-Serving GU Energy Gel pouches. These give you the same great taste and same great benefits you know and love about GU Energy gel, but in a new 'bulked up' format. Loose trash, and sticky pockets are hard to avoid when you're out on the trail or road for hours and hours. To help cut the trash GU partnered with Hydrapak to create a custom 5-serving flask and nozzle designed specifically for GU energy gels. Less-mess, less-litter, more GU!

Our new 15-Serving GU Energy Gel deliver the same proven ingredients as our single-serve packets. Each serving contains 100 calories from a finely tuned ratio of complex (maltodextrin) and simple (fructose) CARBOHYDRATES that deliver energy through non-competing pathway to increase utilization and prevent bonking by sparing muscle glycogen reserves. ELECTROLYTES (sodium and potassium) maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration. AMINO ACIDS are the building blocks of protein and are crucial to performance because of a range of benefits including: reduced mental fatigue, faster muscle repair and recovery, reduced soreness and muscle fatigue, and improved function of your immune system. Some flavours also include CAFFEINE which can enhance performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort. Consume one serving of GU Energy Gel or GU Roctane Energy Gel 5 minutes before and every 45 minutes during activity. Wash down with your favourite GU Hydration Drink or water for optimum absorption.
Do I have to refrigerate unused portions of the 15-serving GU Energy Gel after I open it?
Nope! There’s no need to refrigerate Gels after opening. Store your GU Energy Gel for up to one-month after you open the 15-Serving pouch. Just store it in a cool and dry place.
Is it hard to get all of the Energy Gel out of the Hydrapak flask?
The customized soft flask has an easy to remove twist-top, which enables easy access for cleaning. For optimal results, wash by hand under warm water with soap and let it dry completely before its next use. Do not wash in a dishwasher.
Is the flask and nozzle hard to use during activity?
The customized high-flow nozzle by Hydrapak makes it easy to dispense your Gel, and the soft flask lets you squeeze as you go to make sure you get every last bit. Bonus! You can twist the nozzle with your mouth, which makes it possible to fuel up with only one hand!
What if I don’t need to bring 5-servings of energy Gel? How will I know how much I’m bringing?
The Hydrapak Gel Flasks have convenient markings to help you get the right amount of servings. One serving of GU Energy Gel is 1.1 oz., which means you can also use a food scale to portion out the exact amount of Gel you need.
GU Energy Gel is now Vegan
What do you do when your values collide? I’m vegan and I’m an athlete. Sometimes these two parts of me are at odds with each other. Vegans don’t use any animal products, and this is important to me from a health, environmental, and an ethical perspective. Being active is also important to me for fun and overall well-being. It’s easy to be vegan by not eating animal ingredients such as chicken, turkey, or other products that clearly come from sentient beings. Animal-based ingredients such as whey are also easy to spot and substitute with plant-based protein such as pea or soy. Ingredients with multiple potential origins can be tricky. For example, the amino acid leucine commonly comes from duck feathers, but can also come from plants!
When I started working with GU, I learned that not all our amino acids were vegan. I love GU, but I couldn’t compromise my vegan values. Luckily I didn’t have to stop consuming GU for long, because our amazing GU Research and Development department began making me special batches of vegan GU in the lab. After field testing confirmed the vegan gel performed just as well, we decided to convert all GU Energy Gel to a vegan formulation.
