Smart formulations to go the distance with sports drinks
Sports drinks represent a growing market and are playing an increasingly important role. Most popular sports drinks contain high glycaemic carbohydrates like maltodextrin, glucose syrup and sucrose. Upon intake before sports, these drinks can result in large spikes and drops in blood glucose levels – not an ideal situation for athletes to start their exercise.
Low glycaemic carbohydrates, such as Palatinose™ are exciting alternatives as they deliver a balanced release of energy over a longer period of time. Palatinose™ can support a better rehydration after exercise.
