NEW?:

Is maple syrup the new athletic superfuel? : A low glycemic index, numerous antioxidants and high mineral content make for an appealing energy source for athletes, prompting one legendary Vermont ski family to take a chance on the gooey delight as the next big performance booster (Tik Root, 18 March 2015, The Guardian)

Sold in energy-gel packets with a quick-open top, UnTapped is labeled an "athletic fuel". According to its nutrition panel though, it contains only one ingredient: "100% Pure Vermont Maple Syrup (That's it.)".
