About Kerosine & Benzine

What is the difference between Kerosine and Benzine?

The big difference between Kerosine and Benzine is the concentration. Kerosine is a hypertonic energy drink and Benzine is an isotonic drink. Kerosine can digest 90 – 120g of carbs an hour depending on the choosen ratio. Benzine will take up 30-60g an hour. High amounts of carbs are needed during intense endurance events longer then 3 hours (Kerosine). Benzine is a ready to use drink. Kerosine you will intake shots and rinse away with water afterwards. For long endruance events (> 3 hours) Kerosine is your biggest friend. But know when intesity is low (during endurance training) you can also Benzine use for hours.

Which kerosine ratio do I choose?

Kerosine :

  • Ratio 2:1 > Race strategy based on digesting 90g of carbs an hour
  • Ratio 3:2 > Race strategy based on digesting 100g of carbs an hour
  • Ratio 1:1 > Race strategy based on digesting 120g of carbs an hour

KerosineRS+ :

  • Ratio 1:0 > Race strategy based on digesting 60g of carbs an hour (free of fructose)
  • Ratio 6:1 > Race strategy based on digesting 70g of carbs an hour
  • Ratio 3:1 > Race strategy based on digesting 80g of carbs an hour
  • Ratio 2:1 > Race strategy based on digesting 90g of carbs an hour

In an event there is also possible to switch to different strategies during the race. For example during a full distance Ironman triathlon your bike strategie can be up to 100g an hour and switch on the marathon towards 60-70g an hour.

The amount for racing depends on fat burning efficiency and also the fructose tolerance. Keep always in mind that later in a long distance event the digesting ability will be lower. So anticipate on this is a smart choice. Training the gut and testing the gut too!

How do I know my amount of fat & carb burning at race intensity?

To know how well developed your fat burning qualities are around race intensity you have to measure it by Vo2max Oxygen test of by doing lactate excercise test. Athletes who still have high amount of fat burning around race intensity need to intakes less carbs then atheletes with low fat burning qualities.

Should I add cafein to my product?

Scientifically is clear : cafein will improve performance. The response to cafein is different for every person. Some athletes already improve performance at low levels other need to take more to have the same effect. This is why NutrID offers personalised cafein amounts. First time / order? Start with 1 or 2 mg cafein for every kilo of bodyweight and from there finetune your cafein. Recommended to take cafein for racing and race specific training building up to the event.

Do I have to eat during my races?

We recommend not to eat during racing. Consuming food besides the Kerosine is not a smart choice. The stomach and intestines are already used to the maximum by the Kerosine. Everything more can be too much. As long as your energy levels stay good with the Kersosine there will be no hungry feeling.

During training using the Benzine : when you do cycling longer then 2 hours add every hour a banana or ginger bread to your training nutrition. There is no need to buy expensive bars.

Why is NutrID not selling gels or bars?

The reason we are nog selling gels or bars : for your best performance there is no need for this. During races we do not eat! During training we can. But in comparison with a sportsbar the banana of peace of ginger bread will do exactly the same thing during training..and less expensive. If your name is Dagobert Duck you can buy sportbars..

The only reason why athletes are using gels is that they are lazy! Mix the right amount of Kerosine / KerosinRS+ and bring it with you. The environment will thank you for this..

How do I know if I am fructose intolerant?

A small group of athletes will develop stomach and intestines problems (cramps) when they consume fructose. They have to avoid fructose in their sport nutrition. To find out if you are intolerant for fructose just test it! NutrID produces customized KerosineRS+, Benzine and REC Train free of fructose.

About Recovery

What do I have to do for fast recovery?

After you have done a training of did an event there are three factors according to fast recovery:

  1. Get hydrated! To have a good blood flow your blood should not be ‘thick’!
  2. Get glycogen storage in muscles and liver refilled!
  3. Get some protein! Straight away let the body start the protein synthesis!

An easy and effective way to get these three factors in once DIRECTLY after training or racing is to use the NutrID REC Train. You can customize your personal Rec Train with protein / carbs ratio, choose your protein type (animal or vegan), add optional extra Leucine.

The fastest type of protein to digest is hydrolysed whey protein. The essential amino acid leucine plays important role in starting up the protein synthesis and muscle preservation.

Should I add extra leucine to my Rec Train or Rec Night?

The essential amino acid Leucine plays a key role in the startup of protein synthesis en muscle preservation. Leucine is in smaller amount present in whey protein. To increase the leucine amount in the REC Train of REC Night you can choose to add extra. The quality of your shake will become better. But the taste of the shake will be more bitter.

Which protein / carbs ratio will suit me?

It is important that your personalised recovery shake will bring your the right amount of water, carbs and protein. For example : doing more 4-6 hours bike rides will really burn you some energy! So refilling the glycogen storage is then important. A protein carbs ratio 25-75 for men of 50-50 for women is then right.  When you do shorter sessions with less calories burning you will probably go for ratio 50-50 (men) and 75-25 (women).
