Review for GU Energy Stroopwafel Dutch-Style Syrup Waffle – Individual
Created for daily use before and during training and competition, the new GU Energy Stroopwafel delivers all the nutrients needed to power your performance: quality carbohydrates (immediate and long-lasting energy from complex and simple carbohydrates), essential amino acids (prevent mental fatigue and repair muscle damage during long-duration activities), and electrolytes (replenish what’s lost when you sweat). The Stroopwafel is made with a layer of delicious syrup between two thin wafers, and it’s individually packaged to make it portable and easy to take on a ride or run.Is the GU Energy Stroopwafel gluten free?The Wild Berries and Salted Chocolate flavors are GLUTEN FREE. The Caramel Coffee and Salty’s Caramel flavors do contain gluten.Is the Stroopwafel Kosher?Yes! All flavors are certified kosher.Is the Stroopwafel vegan?No, all flavors are made with organic eggs. What flour is used in the Gluten Free flavors?We use a gluten free flour blend that included organic rice flour, organic tapioca flour, and organic potato starch.How do you eat the Stroopwafel?Rip open the single serving packet and take a bite! It’s good before you run or ride, during long duration activities, and even to fuel up after you finish. We like to enjoy Stroopwafels with a hot cup of coffee, and if you let the steam warm the waffle, it tastes even better!How does the caffeine in Stroopwafel help me?The Stroopwafel comes in both caffeinated and non-caffeinated flavors. Salted Chocolate and Salty’s Caramel are CAFFEINE FREE. Wild Berries and Caramel Coffee contain 20mg of caffeine. Caffeine consumption during exercise improves performance in several ways: it sharpens focus and perks you up; but more importantly, it helps the body produce more power, reduce the pain of hard efforts, and may even tap fat for fuel during exercise. All of this prolongs your ability to exercise at a high intensity. We use just enough caffeine to jump start this benefit and no more.Is the Stroopwafel safe for children?Yes, definitely! It’s good for anyone who needs energy when playing, on a hike, or just being active. You probably want to keep them away from the flavors that contain caffeine; no need to make them more hyperactive.
