INTRODUCTION Fructose coingested with glucose in carbohydrate (CHO) drinks increases exogenous-CHO oxidation, gut comfort, and physical performance. PURPOSE This study aimed to determine the effect of different fructose-maltodextrin-glucose ratios on CHO oxidation and fluid absorption while controlling for osmolality and caloricity. METHODS In a crossover design, 12 male cyclists rode 2 h at 57% peak power then performed 10 sprints while ingesting artificially sweetened water or three… CONTINUE READING
