What is isomaltulose?
Isomaltulose is one of the most powerful and complex carbohydrates in sports science. It has a slower metabolism than sucrose, resulting in a more gradual increase in blood glucose levels. It is often used as a carbohydrate source with a low glycemic index. This means that it can provide both quick and sustained energy.
It prevents energy dips because of its prolonged effect. Therefore, it is also an ideal substance for carbohydrate loading. This way, with a combination of various carbohydrates and isomaltulose, you can go up to 120g of carbohydrates per hour!
