GU Chomps utilize GU Energy Gel’s proven blend of carbohydrates, amino acids, antioxidants and electrolytes to make a chewable form of GU.
Like GU, the Chews contain a balance of complex carbohydrates as the basis of delivering fast and usable energy to your body. They also contain a good amount of Amino Acids which provide extra energy during exercise and play a key role in maintaining concentration and acceleration recovery from a hard workout. Each GU Chews packet will provide enough fuel for approximately 45-60 mins of activity.
Should I use GU Energy Chews instead of GU Energy Gel?
We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane 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 Energy Chews. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chew able form.
Do GU Energy Chews have caffeine?
The Strawberry has 20mg of caffeine per serving, while Blueberry Pomegranate, Orange, and Watermelon are caffeine free.
How do you eat GU Energy Chews?
GU Energy Chews have a perferated strip at the top that allows you to squeeze out one Chomp at a time. Remember, 4 Chews equal 1 serving.
How many packets of GU Energy Chews do I need?
1 packet of Chews contains 1 serving, or 4 chews, which will provide enough fuel for 30 to 45 minutes. 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 GU Energy Chews take to work?
Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chews should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.
Are Chews safe for children?
Chews are safe for children to eat, but remember that the Strawberry contains caffeine.
