Sports nutritionists generally recommend 30-60g carbs per hour during medium to intensive exercise.

In addition, research has shown that carbohydrate intake of 1.5g carbohydrates per kg body-weight immediately post exercise and a further 1.5g/kg after 2 hours improves post exercise recovery.

A blend of 2 or 3 carbohydrates improves re-hydration (eg: fructose and glucose).

It’s important to properly hydrate as part of taking carbohydrate mineral replacements.  Optimal dilution is 200ml per 12g of carbohydrates.
