Frequently asked questions

Are they as powerful as traditional gels?

Yes, our Nectars contain 22g of dual-source fast-release 100% natural carbohydrates and 110mg of the purest electrolytes; equal to (and better than) the traditional synthetic sports energy gels on the market.

Better still, our Nectars are half the size (and weight) of a typical gel - weighing in at a small but mighty 33g. Most gels are a whopping 60g in weight, sometimes as much as 70g, making our nectars much easier to consume, lighter to carry and take up less space in your pockets or running belts. Win win.

When should I use them?

We generally advise to take your first Nectar somewhere between 60-75 minutes into your workout and then every 45 minutes or so.

How many should I take?

It depends. Each of us absorb and burn energy uniquely. We recommend that you try to consume a mix of bars, nectars and hydration as part of your fuelling strategies, so to find out more about how best to fuel, please visit our blog.

Whether you're a runner, rider, swimmer or just live an active life, you'll find all sorts of articles and how-tos.

One other thing... The Doppio contains 75mg of natural caffeine from Guarana. We don't recommend you consume more than 5 per day and the caffeine means that they're not suitable for under 16's or pregnant Mums.

Will they give me tummy cramps?

No, our products are 100% natural so are easily digested. This means they help to avoid bloating, cramping and other dreaded GI issues, allowing you to perform at your best.

We recommend you always stay hydrated and that you train with your chosen fuels before taking on any events. Make sure you stay within the maximum consumption rates too – in this case, that would be no more than 90g of dual-source carbohydrates per hour.

Are they easy to swallow?

Yes, our Nectars are made with a little water inside so that they have a smooth and easy to swallow consistency, and at just 33g they are still small enough not to weigh you down.

Taking the Nectar with a little bit of water helps swallow the liquid entirely and move it into your gut faster, so the energy can be absorbed and released as quickly as possible.

Are they suitable for Vegans?

Yes, our Nectars are made with 100% natural, plant-based ingredients.

Do they contain any allergens?

No, they are all gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, additive & preservative free and contain no animal products.

Do they contain caffeine?

Only Doppio – Tempo and Primo do not.

Doppio energy sachets contain 75mg of natural caffeine from Guarana, the equivalent of a large espresso.

Caffeine doesn't actually give you more energy, it improves reaction speed, alertness & concentration whilst reducing your perception of exertion. You feel more awake & your efforts feel less strenuous, allowing you to exercise harder for longer.

Guarana is absorbed slowly by the body, creating a state of calm alertness, with a less jittery, more sustained energy boost... a stark contrast to the fast rush & crash experienced with brewed coffee or synthetic energy gels. Go natural caffeine!

All our gels and products are hand-crafted from 100% natural ingredients. With Vegan & Vegetarian options, our range is the perfect real food for your active lifestyle and naturally free from Gluten, Dairy, Preservatives & Additives.

Twice the power

Big on performance
