The latest addition to the ROCTANE Energy Gel collection offers fuel for high-intensity activities in a classic coffee shop flavor

Berkeley, Calif. (July 11, 2018) — A little bit sweet, a little bit spicy – what better way to fuel your most strenuous of activities than with a CHAi LATTe. This coffee shop classic is the newest addition to the ROCTANE product line – GU Energy Labs’ solution to fueling during high-intensity, long-duration activities.

This latest flavor provides athletes with an Energy Gel that delivers perfectly harmonized Chai flavors of warm ginger, sweet cinnamon and aromatic cloves and cardamom required a deep understanding of its flavor profile. 

“Perfecting the CHAi LATTe flavor was part art and part science,” said Magda Boulet, VP of Research, Innovation & Development at GU Energy Labs. “Through taste-testing, in-depth research on Chai flavor history and plenty of trial and error, we’re excited to deliver this warm and spicy addition to our line of ROCTANE Energy Gels.”

Compared to original Energy Gels, the CHAi LATTe ROCTANE Energy Gel delivers more branched-chain amino acids that prevent mental fatigue and reduce muscle damage, beta-alanine to help buffer acidity levels in muscles to prevent soreness and reduce muscle fatigue, taurine to improve heart contractility and 35mg of caffeine to help improve focus and decrease perceived exertion.
