it’s a grape!
You ask what is Vindurance and what’s inside? The answer is very simple: It’s Grape! But not just any grape, It’s WINE GRAPE. Yes, the grapes you usually enjoy with a nice dinner in liquid form. Now you can totally guilt-free nip on your Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon whilst doing sports. No worries, there is no alcohol in it and it is full of good things that you already have heard about such as carotenoids and stilbenes, minerals and vitamins. Being a low GI fruit, it also helps you keeping your insulin levels balanced. And it is free from nasty glutens in case they bother you.
Does that sound good? Well then have a try!

Vindurance is full of great ingredients. The main ingredient is wine grape juice but we supplement the gel with other ingredients to ensure you get what you need for maximum endurance. Here is the list of ingredients found in Vindurance gels.
Grape juice from Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon is by far the varietal with the highest levels of antioxidants contained within its pulp and skin. We know that antioxidants are good for us. Therefore we have chosen to release Cabernet Sauvignon first, besides that fact that it has a great taste with a distinct jam-like flavour. Did we mention that you can find a lot of healthy vitamins and minerals in Cabernet Sauvignon juice? http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=40
Grape Juice from Chardonnay
White grapes are often overlooked as an almost equally rich source of antioxidants as red grapes. Flavonoids, tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol are more commonly found in white grapes. Chardonnay simply tastes great – its’ bouquet minds of apples, peaches and apricots. Boom! Three in one, a total WINNER! http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=40
Murray River Salt
Do you care where your salt comes from? There is quite a buzz about Himalayan salt these days. Actually you don’t have to go far to find tasty and mineral-rich salt. Himalayan salt is not that local and and most of it is mined. Luckily, there are alternatives closer to home. We have used Murray River salt to give that extra sodium content to our gels. This wonderful salt is available from the same vineyards as our grapes. http://lauratrotta.com/what-is-the-most-sustainable-salt/
Strawberry and Pomegranate Puree
Choosing these two power fruits as an addition to our Cabernet Sauvignon Kick Gel was an obvious pick. They add great fruit flavours and are rich in antioxidants bursting with vitamins, just like the grapes. http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20606331,00.html
Remember the adage, ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’? In that spirit, apple puree is a great complementary fruit to our Chardonnay Kick Gel. Rich in flavonoids and vitamins, it speaks for itself! http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20606331,00.html
When we talk about wine (professionally) we talk about the importance of the right balance between fruit flavours, acidity and body. It is the same with our gels. A little splash of lemon juice helps to make the gel a little more crisp and fresh. It also adds an extra kick of vitamin C. Double WIN! http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20606331,00.html
Maltodextrin, Agave Syrup, Fructose and Organic Brown Rice Malt Syrup
It’s all in the sugar mix! Our Kick Gels offer you a variety of sugars to fuel your energy needs. They have been carefully selected and mixed to give you the correct balance – ensuring you do not suffer a sugar rush and send your stomach into oblivion. The mixture will ensure that you get the kick when you feel depleted and need it most.
Nobody like preservatives. They have a poor reputation as they do not add to the nutritional values of a product and are mostly seen as being ‘chemical’ in nature. We are honest with you and don’t want to talk BS. We do apply small quantities of preservatives in our gels for obvious reasons, we want it to last a little while. Whilst we are committed to be as natural as possible we are also realistic, knowing the food and beverage industry for many years. Everything can be expressed as a chemical, even water, H2O is its chemical sign. So why do we apply some preservative? We want the best quality products for you, with the product remaining intact and tasty from the day it was made for you.
