If its a product or brand, its processed schwag!
Eddy ate bananas, jam sandwiches, rice with mollasses etc.
Fruits contain the peak 1:1 glucose/fructose ratio and in the last 2 years the sports 'nutrition' companies have cottoned on and called it a 'breakthrough sports nutrition product' for anything that has this ratio..
Eat un processed wholefood carbs and automatically you get all your amino acid, vitamins, phytonutrients, enzymes, minerals etc. How can we get quality nurition in a packaged product that has been sitting on the shelf with a use by date of a few years..
7hrs ago I just fininshed my 8th 24hr solo xc race on bananas, dates and water. The whole race I saw riders belching, complaining of gastric issues or taking antacids... It cost me 50$ AUS for around 8000calories I consumed during the race. 8000cals from sports products would be well over 250$AUS in the form of bars, gels and powders.
As someone that used to sell these products, I can say that the majority of people that bought them had more money than sense.
Why buy a product that is named after a fruit, coloured like a fruit, tastes like a fruit, smells like a fruit yet has less nutrition and costs up to 500% more?
