TORQ energy

The single tubes that you can refill were just great. I hate carrying around those big tubs in my gym kit they are so heavy and I end up waisting most of it trying to get it in my drinks bottle. FIll the refills up at home and chuck them in your bag, pour and shake. 10/10 Torq

We tried out the Natural Flavour, this is for people who really don't like the taste of the flavoured drinks. TORQ energy NATURAL FLAVOURED is a naturally flavoured high carbohydrate energy drink, containing no artificial sweeteners, colours or preservatives. I also sprinkled it on my cereal in the morning. The energy drinks are really refreshing and keep you hydrated throughout your workout. I enjoyed the berry flavour more than the lime.

Can't wait to try out some more!!!

Light Flavour (easy to drink):  The first rule of Performance Nutrition is that you’ve got to be able to drink the product. You could have a technically perfect product, but if it isn’t easy to drink, you won’t be able to make use of the calories and fluid. TORQ energy is low in sweetness and light on flavour, because of the natural flavours used and the absence of artificial sweeteners.

2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose:  Peer-reviewed published research has proven that this blend of carbohydrates provides 40% greater carbohydrate delivery compared with ‘maltodextrin only’ formulations. Blends containing glucose or sucrose as well as maltodextrin deliver even less than Maltodextrin on its own.

With Electrolytes: TORQ energy contains all 5 electrolytes (Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium) at much higher levels than other commercially available sports drinks. Many ‘ready-to-drink’ products only contain Sodium and Chloride (and sometimes potassium) and the levels are quite low, because the general population whom they’re marketed at won’t like salty drinks. Mixed at 6% (isotonic), TORQ energy sits right in the middle of the research-recommended range for electrolyte content.  At 9% (hypertonic), it’s right at the top. TORQ energy shouldn’t be mixed above 9%.

Natural Flavours: TORQ have been ethical and thoughtful in their ingredient choices since the development of their first products in 2003. It is core to TORQ’s philosophy to use high quality natural ingredients and to avoid artificial additives.

No Colours, Preservatives or Artificial Sweeteners:  We see no benefit achieved through adding colours to our products, even if they are natural ones, because it’s another ‘thing’ for the gut to break down. They clearly offer no function. The same argument can be put forward with regard to artificial sweeteners, more so in fact. In addition to this, these are artificial chemicals (aspartame for instance is derived from crude oil) and there is ongoing debate over their long-term safety.

Flavours:  Natural Orange, Natural Lemon, Natural Lime & Lemon, Natural Pink Grapefruit.
