    Unhappy Infinit nutrition alternatives please...

    So because of a few complications, I can't order Infinit nutrition from my country anymore. With the Europe store closing down and the US and CAN stores not taking orders from Ireland, it makes it difficult to continue using (I had been a faithful user for about three years now).

    I will also say that I can't get Hammer nutrition in my country, so no suggestions for that please. I suppose I can get most other brands including Powerbar, Torq, High5, SIS, Accellerade, among others.

    What I liked most about Infinit was the easy calorie control, and that would be the main thing I would look for in a sports drink/product.
    I have been using Torq a bit for the last few weeks but am slightly concerned that I'm not getting enough calories with it.

    Thanks for any help! I'm at a bit if a loose end here.

    Dunno what country you are in, but none of these products are very complicated, make your own. Calorie control is very easy when you put in your own calories, same goes for electrolytes, caffeine, amino acids etc.

    I don't happen to have a science lab in my house so I think I'll pass on that...

    Any suggestions for a different brand?

    This is the only "bike specific" stuff I use:

    EFS Liquid Shot

    I hate dealing with dirty water bottles so I don't use powders. I just buy the 30oz refill and use with gel bottle. I really only use this for longer races and not training rides. I use regular food for training rides and only if over 2 hours.

    Do you have a sink and a measuring spoon or cup?

    Measure all ingredients precisely. Small variations can make the drink less effective or even harmful. Mix the following:

    1 quart (950 mL) water
    teaspoon (2.5 g) baking soda
    teaspoon (2.5 g) table salt
    teaspoon (1.25 g) salt substitute (potassium-based), such as Lite Salt or Morton Salt Substitute
    2 tablespoons (30 g) ordinary sugar << Sugar has 3.9 calories per gram
    you can buy "maltodextrin" in bulk from nutrition stores.
    Add flavor such as fruit juice to taste.

    Or if you just want a prepackaged solution, can you order from Ribble?
