Straight off the recipe uses a pound of maltodextrin. This is not a hydration drink. You need to drink a fair amount of water after each sip or you'll be dropping an osmotic bomb into your gut.

I used to use something like that. It worked okay. But like Bill
says, it's a bit tricky to keep from getting nauseous.

Sounds like digestive issue in a bottle

Taking nutritional advice from Facebook? What could possibly go wrong?

P.S. I read on Facebook that this drink will make you magnetic. Do your own research!

I tried It on a hilly 200k recently.  I liked it, but the taste is definitely sweet and it’s very thick.  It set up overnight in the fridge and I had to add a little warm water and shake it up to re-liquify.

I sipped it over the course of the rode and it kept my energy level pretty even.  No digestive issues for me.  I ate rice bars and snacks at three controls for the 141 miles and didn’t have any issues.

I saw it on YouTube, avoiding any Facebook problems ;-)

Yes. They recommended sipping water as well. It is meant to last all day.

Can anyone compare it with commercial products? 

I'm intrigued. It looks similar to Hammer Nutrition's Perpetuem, Sustained Energy products when mixed as multi-hour bottles and/or all-day pastes (though even more calorically dense).

I’ve used a number of commercial drinks like perpetual over the years, but only when mixed as in the directions, not as a paste.  As I drank it there was far less taste and much more water. They work well but have far fewer calories. 

 This mix is not for hydration—I had another water bottle and a camelbak.  This is for calories.  Sip it then chase with water.  It was pretty palatable to me but YMMV.  I’m still trying it, but won’t use it every ride because I don’t want to burn out on it.
