Article: Sticky Situation, Understanding Carbohydrate Gels
Excerpt (page 46):
Water’s qualities, while helping our bodies stay hydrated, isn’t enough in and of itself. The body continues to lose vital electrolytes such as potassium, calcium and most notably sodium during heavy workouts, especially on hot days. And no one includes them in any notable amounts except for Crank Sport’s e-Gel.
“All of us [major gel companies] put electrolytes in our gels,” says GU’s Vice President of Marketing Will Garrett. “But they’re for taste mostly. There’s not enough in PowerGel, Clif Shot or even GU to make any impact. Only the guys at e-Gel put in enough for sustainability, but we hope you get electrolytes from your sports drink.”
