Mrs. WhipRun’s UCAN “Gel”

I’m getting lots of questions regarding my wife’s UCan gel. So, I asked her to show us exactly how she mixes and stores these packs.

What you’ll need:

  • UCAN
  • Electrolyte of your choice
  • Coconut water
  • Ziplock bags
  • Small Bowl
  • Spoon
  • Cup

She has never measured exactly how much coconut water to use, but says you want to get it to the consistency of frosting. If you prefer it a little less thick, she recommends using more coconut water. They end up being a little bit larger than your standard gel pack, but still small enough for her to carry 8 at a time in her hydration pack, (12 hours worth of fuel!)

    • HI Kim, If you mix with one superstarch pouch it is approx 110 calories. One scoop out of the UCAN tub is 80 calories. You can obviously add a bit more from the tub if you want to be around 100 calories, which is the same as most gels. πŸ™‚
