Absolutely not! There is no fructose in Shotz Energy Gel and for good reason. Glucose molecules, which are the building blocks of sucrose, can be metabolised (used) by any and every cell in the human body. This is not so with fructose.

Energy and time that is better spent getting you to the finish.
