Ingestion of a 15 gram dose of carbohydrate followed by a blood glucose test 15 minutes later is a mnemonic used by the American Diabetes Associationand many others. It is considered the “rule of 15” – consuming 15 grams of carbohydrate followed by a 15-minute wait and repeated again if blood glucose remains low.
TORQ have successfully applied the latest Sports Science research (see research tab) into a great tasting carbohydrate gel containing precisely 15-grams of fast-acting carbohydrate. The Sports Science research upon which we rely has been fundamental to the development and formulation of our cutting-edge TORQ Fuelling System products, used by athletes and physically active people for many years.
We have applied this cutting-edge research to diabetes, since the rapid delivery of carbohydrate required by endurance athletes to maximise performance is similarly desirable in raising blood glucose when people with diabetes experience hypoglycaemia (low blood glucose). The speed of carbohydrate delivery is critical to both of these populations.
The 15 gram dose of carbohydrate is delivered via a smooth, great tasting gel formulation, packaged in a conveniently transportable tube with an easy-tear top.
TORQ have partnered with GlucoRx who have a vast amount of experience in the world of diabetes and are the UK’s leading supplier of blood glucose testing and monitoring equipment.
