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 perfect for an endurance activity, thanks to the many vitamins and antioxidants 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 that at lunch the cyclists got their energy from Gula Java (coconut blossom sugar produced by Amanprana). Normal sugars were replaced by Gula Java, a healthy 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 that slowly releases energy (low glycemic index) and contains more minerals and antioxidants than fruit and vegetables. This means that when performing over an extended period of time your body has greater resistance and an improved ability to recover. 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 healthy. Get rid of unhealthy sugars and go for the proper energy – Amanprana’s Gula Java.
