All our GU products feature "Best By Date". Often Best By Date's are confused with Expiration Date, but the two labels tell consumers very different things. The Best By Date is recommended for best flavour, it is not a purchase or safety date.
The products past their Best By Date are still completely safe for consumption and their performance will not be influenced in the following 12-24 months past this date. There might be a slight change in taste or flavour or in consistency. Foods past their Best By Date can still be legally sold by retailers according to New Zealand law.
Created for demanding training and competition, GU Roctane Energy Gel stands out from original GU Energy Gel with more sodium, an electrolyte that aids in hydration, and even more branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) that reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage than our original GU Energy Gel. The amino acid taurine helps maintain heart contractility and improve cardiac output during long exercise sessions, while the amino acid beta-alanine helps promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine. The 100-calorie packets contain carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while diminishing stomach distress.
Roctane Energy Gel is vegan, gluten free, and kosher.Best By December 2021
