How much Carb-BOOM should I take?
We recommend consuming roughly 1-2 packs of Carb-BOOM per hour during exercise to keep you performing at your best.
Should I take water with Carb-BOOM?
YES. The consumption of Carb-BOOM during exercise is not sufficient to replace the water lost from sweating in order to combat dehydration. It is very important that individuals participating in strenuous exercise drink enough fluid to stay hydrated. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), it is recommended that individuals drink 20-40 ounces per hour in order to replace sweat/fluid loss. In addition to concerns about dehydration, insufficient levels of water intake may slow down the intestinal absorption of carbohydrates. We recommended that roughly 8-10 ounces of water or a sports beverage be consumed per pack of Carb-BOOM.
What types of carbohydrates are in Carb-BOOM?
Carb-BOOM contains a special blend of about 85% complex carbohydrates (maltodextrin) and 15% simple sugars.
What is maltodextrin?
Maltodextrin is an easily digestible complex carbohydrate made from natural corn starch. Maltodextrin is the preferred carbohydrate used in energy foods due to its solubility, low taste profile, and quick absorption. Maltodextrin is the primary source of complex carbohydrates in Carb-BOOM energy gel.

I am allergic to wheat – does Carb-BOOM contain any gluten?
No. Gluten is found in many wheat and grain foods and cannot be eaten by individuals with celiac disease (people that are allergic to flour). The main ingredient in Carb-BOOM is maltodextrin -- a carbohydrate made from natural corn starch. Corn-based maltodextrins are safe for patients with celiac disease since they do not contain proteins from wheat, barley, oats or rye.
Why should I use Carb-BOOM instead of an energy bar?
Many athletes prefer gels over energy bars because gels provide a super concentrated dose of carbohydrate that is absorbed very easily into the bloodstream. Additionally, gels are attractive because they are less "heavy on the stomach" and less likely to cause gastrointestinal distress than energy bars.
Can diabetics use Carb-BOOM?
Carb-BOOM can be a great resource for diabetic individuals and/or athletes. Our gels can be consumed with the same precautions that typically apply to diabetics and the ingestion of carbohydrates during rest and exercise. Each gel pack (1.4 ounces) contains about 27 grams of carbohydrates -- about 85% of which consists of complex carbohydrates. To be safe, a doctor should be consulted to confirm what is best for the particular individual.
