Matteo Trentin took stage win 7 of the Tour de France.

On Friday, 11 July 2014, cyclist Matteo Trentin of the Belgian cycling team Omega Pharma - Quick-Step took the stage win, just beating Peter Sagan on the 234.5 km stage 7.

Was his win thanks to the energy shake he drank before the race?

A shake containing red fruits and sweetened with Amanprana’s Gula Java coconut blossom sugar is good for an endurance activity, thanks to the many vitamins (view label) and antioxidants (Orac 2.200/100g) packed into it.

At around 13.25 (during an interview with Sport-Stan on MNM radio on 12 July 2014), Tom Steels, trainer of the Omega Pharma - Quick-Step cycling team, told listeners what was on the menu for his cyclists. He enthusiastically and expertly related mentioned that the cyclists drink Gula Java (coconut blossom sugar produced by Amanprana) at lunch. Normal sugars were replaced by Gula Java, a delicious energy drink made of coconut blossoms. Doping has become redundant, and now the 30 cyclists in the team, including Matteo Trentin, Julian Alaphilippe, Jan Bakelants, Tom Boonen, Mark Cavendisch, Gianluca Brambilla and many others are given Gula Java to up their energy levels. We at Amanprana believe that the choice made by the sports director was completely right. The Tour de France – bring it on!

What makes Gula Java the perfect energy drink?

Amanprana’s Gula Java is an unrefined sugar with a low glycemic index and contains more minerals (view label) and antioxidants (Orac 2.200/100g) than fruit and vegetables. Together with honey, Gula Java coconut blossom sugar is the only sugar that is extracted from a flower, which is probably why it is so natural.
