Introducing STEALTH Training Mix

WHY

  • In 2016 we were asked by one of the pro tour teams we were supporting to produce a slow release carbohydrate energy drink to support fat burning rides. 
  • In the past these rides were often done fasted using no carbohydrate fizz tabs which can result in muscle loss and tiring energy lows.
  • Research using slow release carbohydrates like isomaltulose (palatinose) and resistant starches suggest that it is possible to support enhanced fat burning whilst sustaining background energy levels ( E.g. König et al 2015)
  • Training Mix combines slow release carbohydrates with our race proven electrolyte and vitamin mix and is available in 3 great tasting low acid flavours.

Training Mix is based around the slow release sugar Palatinose (isomaltulose)

Due to its specific molecular bond PalatinoseTM (isomaltulose) is fully absorbed but slower than commonly known sugars or carbohydrates. It therefore offers the full caloric value of carbohydrates (4 kcal/g) but in a balanced and longer lasting way.  This avoids spiking blood sugar levels with the associated insulin response.

USERS FEEDBACK

"for the haute route I trained pretty hard, as I knew it would be a hard challenge. Eating a low carb diet helped with my weight loss and using the secret training products pre haute route really helped.  With the new training mix  I didn't get any energy spikes on the bike whilst out training, I also didn't get any energy lows in the whole 8 week block of training"

Type 1 diabetics are particularly sensitive to fluctuations in blood glucose levels.   Since there are a number of diabetics on some of our supported teams I was keen to get their practical feedback.  Users reported that ‘training mix’ was able to sustain energy during long rides without any peaks necessitating adjustment to their insulin pump.  We are looking forward to gaining more data from these users with continuous glucose monitoring.

WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS

Effect of PalatinoseTM on fat oxidation first confirmed in study on diabetic patients in running exercise. Researchers concluded ‘consuming isomaltulose improves blood glucose responses during and after exercise through reduced carbohydrate and increased lipid oxidation during exercise’, West et al (2011).
