As the name suggests, My Protein has traditionally fed the needs of power athletes. But the new MP Max One range offers some premixed solutions for us more endurance-inclined triathletes.
The Energel is the brand’s first appearance on these pages and it’s a fairly simple affair – not dissimilar from the texture of an SiS Go Gel – and consists of a large 70g serving mixed to an easy-to-swallow consistency. The Summer Berry on test here is an undoubtedly tasty flavour, not dissimilar to a diluted blackcurrant squash, with no noticeable synthetic undertones or gag-inducing properties.
Each sachet contains a hefty 36g of carbs and a host of electrolytes to help proper hydration. But, frustratingly, My Protein don’t list the sodium content of the gel, which is something that athletes – especially those racing long-distance – need to know to plan their nutrition strategy.
