Fast-Delivery 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose carbohydrate energy drink with 5 key electrolytes and natural flavours. Designed to help maintain hydration, deliver carbohydrate and replace electrolytes lost through perspiration. Light on the stomach and refreshing with a natural mild flavour.
Isotonicity: The high grade, low osmolality maltodextrin used by TORQ maintains TORQ Energy’s tonicity just below the isotonic level, providing the perfect balance between fuel and fluid delivery into the blood. TORQ energy has literally been optimised in every way possible. A ‘Hypertonic’ solution priorities fuel delivery over fluid and a ‘Hypotonic’ solution works the other way around, favouring fluid over fuel. The beauty of a solution being ‘Isotonic’ is that it sits right in the middle of these two states, providing the perfect platform for endurance fuelling. If perspiration rates are low, TORQ Energy should be consumed alongside TORQ’s more concentrated fuelling units (TORQ Gel, TORQ Bar and TORQ Chew) forming a hypertonic regimen in the intestine, delivering fuel faster when fluid isn’t so important. When perspiration rates are higher, more TORQ Energy should be consumed relative to the concentrated fuelling units, maintaining the isotonic balance. TORQ do produce a hypotonic product, which not surprisingly is called TORQ Hypotonic, designed for situations where perspiration rates are exceptionally high and fuel delivery is less important.

Electrolytes: TORQ energy contains Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium to replace the 5 electrolytes lost through perspiration. These salts maintain homeostasis within the body, allow it to hold onto water and preserve muscle function. Some brands do not include all of these electrolytes in their formulations, or run them at lower levels than they should – some include none at all.
