Rated 5 out of 5 by LeGrimpeur Makes a top quality sports drink.
Can only comment on the Summer Fruits flavour. It tastes fantastic and it is easy on your stomach. Very easy to make as it mixes very well with water leaving no powdery lumps. Keeps your hydration levels in tune. And a bonus of this product is that it contains no artificial colours, preservatives or sweeteners. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dade Awesome Product. Will not use anything else
I have been riding for 5 years now and struggled to find a product that kept my energy levels consistent. I received samples with some products I ordered at CRC 2 years ago and loved it from first go. Done 100mile rides on the Road, Multi day MTB rides and this stuff works. Does not affect the stomach in any bad way. Legs don't fatigue as quickly and I stay hydrated in the Harsh South African sun. I have other tubs of various products which are still in my cupboard which I will not touch. Energy Source is the only race mix you will ever need.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JakeB Easy to mix, great taste.
This product tastes good, I have had orange and forest fruits, both nice but the later best. Easy on the stomach and not overly sweet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaxFresh Great for long races
I've tried a lot of different energy drinks and this is by far the best. Keeps you hydrated and the electrolytes stays in shape. I often use this for 4-6 hr trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dantezuma Does what it says on the tin.
I have to say I was dubious about the claims made by the manufacturer but after trying out some tester sachets that cam with a CRC order I was convinced enough to shell out for the big 2.2kg tub. This works out by far the cheapest way to buy it. I can now do a 120K ride without having to eat anything at all. So long as you just keep sipping this up at the recomended rate (which does take a little getting used to) you can keep on going like the energiser bunny.

The size of serving you require depends on the activity you are taking part in, but since the body can only hold around 400g of carbohydrate, and can only ingest up to 90g per hour, a 2.2 Kg tub should provide a minimum of 24 servings.
