Frequently Asked Questions

Vegan & Gluten

Are Neversecond products suitable for vegans?

All C-Series products are suitable for vegans. Our P30 product contains whey, and so is not suitable for vegans.

Are Neversecond products gluten-free?

Some Neversecond products are gluten-free. Others are not. None of our products are gluten-tested, so gluten-sensitive individuals should use caution.


What makes Neversecond C-SERIES products different than other fuelling products?

Our C-Series products are formulated exclusively for endurance athletes. They are a system of products that are formulated to work together.

What do the C30, C60 and C90 names mean on C-Series products?

All Neversecond products are formulated using 30-gram increments of carbohydrate. A C30 product contains 30 grams of carbohydrate. A C60 product contains 60 grams. A C90 product contains 90 grams.

Why do Neversecond products use 30-gram carbohydrate increments?

Neversecond products use 30-gram carbohydrate increments so that endurance athletes have a precise value to help them plan, test and perfect their performance nutrition. Other competitive products use arbitrary values that leave the athlete guessing how any products they need to consume during a training session or race.

What do the dots indicate on Neversecond products?

The dots on all Neversecond products correlate with the “C” (carbohydrate) value. One dot = C30. Two dots = C60. Three dots = C90. The purpose of the dots is to allow athletes to easily recognise the carbohydrate value of the product they are consuming.

C30 Energy Gel

What is an energy gel?

An energy gel is a semi-solid, highly concentrated carbohydrate product. Essentially it is a compact form of energy.

Do you consume energy gels with water?

You can consume our energy gels with or without water.

Why is the texture of Neversecond gels different than other gels?

Neversecond C30 and C30+ Energy Gels have a thinner consistency than gels, making them easier to consume on the go. Our gels also contain 30 grams of carbohydrate which is higher than most competitive gels.

C30 Sports Drink

What is a sports drink?

A sports drink is a carbohydrate-based electrolyte drink that is designed to both hydrate and deliver fuel.

How does a sports drink compare with water?

A sports drink contains carbohydrate for fuel and sodium to help fluid absorption. Water only helps with hydration.

What makes Neversecond sports drinks special?

Neversecond sports drinks use 2:1 matodextrin-to-fructose. They also have a very mild flavour profile and are isotonic for rapid gastric emptying. Our sports drinks do not contain any artificial colours or flavours. They contain only 4 ingredients and are strictly based on scientific research.


Why do some Neversecond products contain caffeine?

Caffeine is clinically proven to enhance athletic performance when consumed correctly. We recommend testing caffeine consumption in order to optimise the right level for you.

Why does Neversecond use 75mg of caffeine in caffeinated products?

Some Neversecond products are formulated with 75mg of caffeine. This value was selected after careful consideration. 75mg is the “gold standard” as it provides enough of a dose to be effective, yet low enough to reduce the incidence of overconsumption.

How do I know if a Neversecond product contains caffeine?

All Neversecond caffeinated products are clearly marked with the caffeine content. The “C-value” is also followed by a “+” symbol. As example, C30 is non-caffeinated. C30+ is caffeinated.
