Rated 4 out of 5 by Bradsony Good value and light taste
This product mixes well and has a light taste. I have GI issues when racing using gatorade or powerade so I had switched to GU brew to avoid this. I came across this product which was on promo and came with a box of 20 gels for less than $20 so thought I would give it a try. It has worked out and saved me some money compared to GU brew. The only thing I would like to see is more electrolytes (it only has 240mg sodium. No potassium, magnesium, ect.) They recommend adding zero tablets to the drink if you are racing in hot conditions to help with electrolyte replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 Easier than messing around with gels.
I usually take a CamelBak with me on longer rides and a 500ml bottle of this in the cage of my frame, it's easier than messing around with gels or stopping to eat something. It also tastes pretty good and is a lot cheaper than buying individual gels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonathanMsn Great energy source
This is a great value product - much more economical than using sachets and gels. It tastes OK, and I feel the energy boost after using this energy source on a long ride, or long turbo session.

It is not recommended to mix these powders, as the 4:1 is essentially the standard drum but with the Whey Protein (so mixing them effectively doubles the amount of fructose). Rather than trying to mix them together, I would simply use a lesser amount of the 4:1 on shorter rides. High 5 have a few good nutrition guides on their site, and do discuss some combinations of product there - http://highfive.co.uk/high5-faster-...
