HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Drink Mix 320 is built on hydrogel technology*. When mixed it with water (500ml), you'll get a liquid sports drink containing a high concentration of maltodextrin and fructose. The sports drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach. The hydrogel enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed. *Patent pending.
The hydrogels in the sports drinks are built from the combination of two natural ingredients:
Alginate – which is extracted from the cell walls of brown algae.
Pectin – found in apples, lemons, carrots and tomatoes, to name a few.
These two dietary fibers have been used for decades within the food industry. Combined under precisely the right circumstances, alginate and pectin form a pH-sensitive hydrogel.
