Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of long duration activities. The 90-calorie packet contains carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
What's in it?
Electrolytes : Maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration.
Carbohydrates : Deliver ready-to-use energy and delay bonking by sparing glycogen.
Amino Acids : Reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.
Caffeine : Enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort during exercise.
Consume one packet 5 minutes before, and one packet every 45 minutes during activity.
Wash down with your favorite GU Hydration Drink or water for optimum absorption.
Should I use Chomps instead of GU?
We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel) is the ideal source of fuel for an athlete while training or racing, but just in case you crave something to sink your teeth into, we’ve created GU Chomps. Chomps contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chewable form.
Do Chomps have caffeine?
The Strawberry and Cranberry Apple flavors each have 20mg of caffeine per serving, while Blueberry Pomegranate and Orange are caffeine free.
How do you eat Chomps?
GU Chomps have a convenient tear strip at the top that allows you to squeeze out one Chomp at a time. Remember, 4 Chomps equal 1 serving.
How many packets of Chomps do I need?
1 packet of Chomps contains 2 servings, which will provide enough fuel for 1 ½ to 2 hours of activity. That said, all athletes are different and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Remember to hydrate along the way!
How long do Chomps take to work?
Since Chomps are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chomps should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.
Are Chomps safe for children?
Chomps are safe for children to eat, but remember that the Strawberry and Cranberry Apple flavors contain caffeine.
Are Chomps gluten free?
As with all GU Energy Labs products, Chomps are gluten free.
Are Chomps dairy free?
Is GU Chomps Kosher?
GU Energy Gel, Roctane, GU Electrolyte Brew, and GU Recovery Brew are all certified Kosher. Chomps are not.
