Drink Mix powders were the foundation blocks of our sport fuel revolution. We launched with two products, the Drink Mix 320 and Drink Mix 160.
In a very short time, we started seeing results, namely from pro athletes who were using Maurten and giving feedback, and in the results of the athletes in their races and training.
The two products are the same in every way except for the amount of Carbohydrates. DM 320 has 80g of carbs, where DM 160 has 40g of carbs.
These two products are weighed to precise grams so that when mixed with water they create the exact ratio needed in order for the PH sensitive Hydrogel to be formed in the stomach. When the drink mix is consumed it reacts in the acidic environment of the stomach and forms Hydrogel.
he drink instantly converts to Hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach, encapsulating the carbohydrates. The Hydrogel then enables a smooth transportation of the drink mix through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
We suggest to athletes who prefer an in-between concentration of carbs in their bottle, 60g, that you mix a 500ml bottle of DM 320 and 500ml bottle of DM 160. When the Drink Mix Powders are completely dissolved, combine the two bottles into one litre, and then divide the new solution into the 500ml bottles again. This combination contains 60g of carbs per bottle, and is thinner than the DM 320 solution while being noticeably heavier than the DM 160. If there was a Maurten Drink Mix equivalent product to this it would be called Drink Mix 240.
