It can take endurance athletes up to 90 minutes of moderate to intense exercise to fully deplete the body’s glycogen (energy) stores.

The most important rule is to fuel before you need it… eat before you are hungry… not as you feel yourself crashing or hitting the wall.

  • We generally advise you to take your first sports gel somewhere between 45-60 minutes into a workout, and then take them every 20- 30 minutes or so from then on.
  • Always take our energy gels with water, as without water, they take longer to digest and enter the blood stream.
  • Consider alternating between caffeine and non-caffeine energy gels too to ensure you don’t take on too much caffeine. Maximum 5 per day.

Always keep well hydrated. Consume alongside our real hydration range

Unrefined brown rice syrup, fruit juice concentrate (18%), (Apple, Blackcurrant),maple syrup, water, elderflower extract, pink Himalayan salt.


Our recipes are stuffed full of the finest real-food ingredients. They are naturally vegan, free from gluten, dairy or any additives & preservatives … making them easily and naturally digestible, free from any nasties. This means they help you to avoid bloating, cramping and other dreaded GI issues, allowing you to perform at your best.


They last 12 months when stored in a cool dry place. 


Once opened, consume immediately.

Delivering Nature’s power at pace


Natural, powerful & delicious… a 100% natural energy gel – hand-crafted to include nature’s secret weapons for fuelling at pace. 


2-in-1 formula of energy & electrolytes with real fruit. The jammy taste of blackcurrant with a fresh elderflower twist.

Rewardingly fresh & fruity, the Riba is the perfect choice to offset flavour fatigue. 

Each 33g squeeze-pack delivers 22g of easily digested dual-source natural carbohydrate with an optimal mix of glucose & fructose to facilitate maximal energy absorption & sustained energy release to keep you going longer. (15)

  • Unrefined Brown Rice Syrup delivers essential fast-release Glucose – rapid delivery of energy straight to your muscles.

  • Date Nectar is higher in Fructose – slower release energy to keep you feeling fuelled for longer.

  • Maple Syrup has a mellow sweetness from both glucose & fructose & is a powerful source of anti-oxidants. (45)

The naturally occurring electrolytes within these syrups are enriched with the purest pink Himalayan salt to help you maintain a healthy fluid balance, reduce muscle cramping & optimise muscle function as you work hard.(38,39)


Blackcurrant, naturally rich in antioxidants and brimming with vitamins, this British super-berry can lower lactate accumulation during running & cycling, allowing you to go on for longer without feeling the burn. Blackcurrants improve blood flow and nutrient delivery, which is key for repairing muscles and removing lactate. Plus, their antioxidants protect against oxidative stress and reduce tissue damage. (68-70) 


We add soft apple & elderflower to to balance the sharpness of the blackcurrants. The natural flavours of freshly squeezed juices are concentrated by removing excess water simply by heating. Elderflower, with its natural anti-inflammatory & anti-oxidant properties (77) & apple juice, rich in natural vitamins & minerals, both add to the natural power held within each Riba.


Blended to provide balanced energy release, easy on the taste buds, easy to swallow & easy on the stomach.

All our energy nectar products are produced within an Informed Sport Certified facility.

The current batches D399, D730, D861 & D863 are Informed Sport Accredited
