The expiration date represents the date by which food or a product (if stored properly) can be consumed without noticeable or essential changes in taste or quality, or with any risk to health.
Since this is a best-before date and not an expiration date, it is possible that the product may still be fit for consumption after the stated date. However, as a manufacturer, we cannot guarantee the quality of our products if they are consumed past the expiration date. The expiration of the expiration date can affect not only the taste, appearance and microbial spoilage of food, but also its effectiveness.
The Isotonic Sportsdrink is a basic sports drink. In it there are only sugars in the form of glucose. The Energy Drink is optimized in this, a carbohydrate ratio of 2:1 between glucose and fructose. This makes it easier to absorb 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour during exercise if you have trained your body in this. In short, if you demand more from your body, it is best to choose our Energy Drink.
A Hydro Tab is designed to support you in hydration. Such a Hydro Tab therefore only contains vitamins and minerals, which you sweat out. You probably recognize the white circles on your sportswear during the summer, these are the lost vitamins and minerals that you can replenish by means of the Hydro Tabs.
A sports drink, such as our Isotonic Sportdrink, Energy Drink or Turbo Drink, consist mainly of energy, also called carbohydrates. These sports drinks are used during efforts where it is important to replenish your energy level and you do not want to end up with an empty glycogen store.

This is a question we get regularly. The Turbo Drink can be dosed in different ways, this is very convenient but also difficult to know how many scoops you should/can put in your water bottle and also in what size water bottle (500 or 750 ml).
The Turbo Drink is basically designed to be used in a 500 ml water bottle. Of course, you can also mix it in a larger water bottle, as long as you make sure you empty 1 water bottle per hour. Then it won't get in the way of your nutrition strategy, but you will supplement more fluids for your fluid balance.
Now to the mixing ratio. You can mix it so you have 80 grams of carbs in 1 water bottle, or you can reduce this to 60 or 40 grams of carbs per water bottle. When you choose which dosage depends on the combination of other (sports nutrition) products and how many carbohydrates you want to get in per hour.
- 80 grams of carbohydrates per bidon
Mix 5 scoops (85 grams) with 500 ml of water.
- 60 grams of carbohydrates per water bottle
Mix 4 scoops (63 grams) with 500 ml of water, or mix 1 sachet of Turbo Drink on the Go 60 with 500 ml of water.
- 40 grams of carbohydrates per water bottle
Mix 3 scoops (42 grams) with 500 ml of water, or mix 1 sachet of Turbo Drink on the Go 40 with 500 ml of water.
If you have trained your gut, it should be possible to absorb 120 grams of carbohydrates per hour with all Turbo Line products. For more explanation, read this article.
