Used by ultra distance athletes

All our products are developed hand in hand with elite athletes through the Näak Lab. Our mission is to build the most efficient and sustainable fuel for ultra distance sports. Today, thousands of professional and amateur athletes around the world depend on Näak to explore new playgrounds and redefine what is physically possible.

Backed by Science

Näak Ultra Energy™ science was developed to meet the specific needs of ultra distance athletes. The idea is simple: the ingestion of a few macronutrients such as carbohydrates and electrolytes is not enough to fuel ultra distances. After a few hours of effort, you need a complete nutrition approach to go farther.

Commonly Asked Questions

How is the Näak Ultra Energy™ Puree sustainable ?

Näak Purees are organic certified and contains upcycled ingredients. All the ingredients are fully traceable and locally-sourced.

How often should I use the Purees ?

We recommend to eat 1 Puree every 45-60min of exercise. If you are racing an ultra, we recommend an energy intake of 300 to 350 Kcal per hour. You can reach those numbers by using one Puree in addition to other Näak Ultra Energy™ products.

What are BCAAs used for?

The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. They are known to reduce muscle fatigue and optimize energy stores.

How well is the protein digested during exercise?

The proteins used in Näak Ultra Energy™ Purees are highly digestible and absorbed efficiently during exercise. We advice to train your guts at least 4 weeks before the race.

Why are electrolytes important?

Electrolytes are crucial to maintain fluid balance, muscle contraction and neural activity. When athletes sweat, they are losing electrolytes and it is important to replace them. Näak Ultra Energy™ Purees contain the four main electrolytes needed to perform at your best.

What type of sugars are used in the Purees™?

We use a blend of "simple sugars" such as maple syrup and "complex sugars" such as hydrolyzed oat flour. A perfect mix of natural carbohydrates to avoid sugar crashes and spikes, and ensure long lasting energy.

Not bad, not good

Hardens in cold weather, and taste is not great. At first it’s actually ok, but the aftertaste is not so good.
