U LOADER contains Palatinose as the sole source of carbohydrates. Palatinose is the brand name for the sugar Isomaltulose. It is a sugar with a low glycemic index (GI32), which is not optimal for a sports drink when you want quick energy, but for a carb loader, it is perfect. It has a 100% uptake and provides 4kcal/g, which is equivalent to the carbohydrate sources we have in our sports drinks.

The main reason we chose Palatinose is that it is the first and so far the only sugar that has the international stamp "Happy Tooth" given by Tooth Friendly International to products that do not have a negative impact on our teeth. Palatinose is not an efficient carbohydrate source for a sports drink as it is absorbed 4-5 times slower than our carbohydrate sources in sports drinks and gels. The energy is therefore delivered slowly to our muscles, which is not desirable during training and competition.

During a carbohydrate loading period lasting 2-3 days before a competition, the speed of uptake does not matter much (i.e., whether the carbohydrates are stored as glycogen in the muscles in 10 minutes or after 40-50 minutes). Considering that Palatinose is tooth-friendly, we have chosen it for our U Loader.

Pro tip:
Creatine Monohydrate in combination with carbohydrates has been shown to lead to 82% faster glycogen storage compared to carbohydrates alone over a 24-hour period. Therefore, we recommend adding creatine if you are in a last-minute situation and need to top up your stores. During a normal loading period of 2-3 days, the body has time to store the carbohydrates as glycogen in the muscles, so there is no need to optimize with simultaneous creatine intake. However, if you are in a last-minute situation and want to be optimal, it is a tip to consider.

Can I mix U Loader with more water? Absolutely, you can mix U Loader however you like to achieve the flavor strength you prefer. It works just as well with 300ml as with 1 liter. Our recommendation is 2 scoops in 300ml for the best taste. But you can adjust the dilution to your liking.

Can I drink U Loader when I'm exercising at a low intensity? Absolutely, you can use U Loader as a sports drink. For doses up to a maximum of 60g of carbohydrates per hour during low-intensity workouts, it functions as an effective sports drink. For higher doses or during more intense workouts when the stomach is a bit more stressed, it is better to use our specialized sports drink U Sport 1:0.8, as it has a more efficient carbohydrate ratio for faster and higher uptake, which is gentler on the stomach.
