To make it really easy for you to know which variant of Long Range Fuel, or how much to use, we created a Long Range Fuel calculator which provides you with a very specific recommendation based on your weight, but also your type, duration, and intensity of exercise.
Of course! Regardless of your needs, we recommend that at the very most you limit your intake to 3 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day of Energise/Energise & Rebuild versions of Long Range Fuel and to 2 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day of Calm/Calm & Rebuild versions (i.e., up to 5 g Long Range Fuel per kg bodyweight per day in total).
For several reasons:
The longer the activity, the lower its intensity and therefore the greater the reliance on fat for energy.
Athletes who consume more calories in ultra-endurance events tend to finish faster than their peers, so we made Long Range Fuel calorie-dense yet easy to digest.
Fat contains more calories per gram than carbohydrate. Long Range Fuel therefore contains lots of calories in a lightweight format, which is ideal when you don’t want to carry much.
We don’t think that low-carb athletes are very well served by existing low-carb products, which are often based on certain hard-to-digest types of fat.
Sometimes - this depends on factors such as temperature. Our Keto Coconut & Almond flavour goes particularly firm at low temperatures. Regardless, it’s generally a good idea to briefly knead or stir all types of Long Range Fuel before you enjoy them to ensure the textures are consistent.
If you notice a little bit of separation in your Long Range Fuel, just mix is back up and you're good to go!
We recommend you keep Long Range Fuel somewhere cool (12 – 20 °C), dark, and dry.
Long Range Fuel Elite is the first, and only, Informed Sport approved nut butter. Informed Sport is recognised by major National Anti-Doping Organisations (NADOs) and it's programme provides assurance to end users that every batch has been tested using ISO 17025 accredited methods for substances prohibited in sport.
The Elite range includes a number of new features created in collaboration with professional athletes, explorers and the military including a lighter weight pouch material, a simpler symbol based labelling system, a matte black non-reflective finish and a larger 250g pack option.
We respect and value the natural world. We donate 1% of our sales to the Coalition for Rainforest Nations, a charity that helps governments and communities responsibly manage their tropical rainforests. Rainforests are our planet’s richest areas of biodiversity and protect against climate change.
We are also responsible in where and how we source our ingredients, we use recyclable and reusable packaging, and we avoid using plastic when possible.
Our delivery boxes, box packaging and glass jars are fully recyclable. Our pouches are recyclable too, however, we cannot guarantee that your local authority will collect this type of material and it is really important to us that this waste ends up in the right place!
We are planning to release a kerbside recyclable pouch later in the year, but until then we are able to recycle our pouches with the TerraCycle® Zero Waste Box™ solution.
You can either drop off your used pouches at a local recycling centre, a TerraCycle® food waste return site (you can find them here) or send them back to us to be sorted, turned into plastic granules and transformed into new products.
Just add a Terracycle Returns Envelope to your cart and we will send one out with your order with a prepaid return label on it. Save up as many pouches as you can before sending them back to us – at least 20 would be great.
No, we wouldn’t do that to you! Palm oil is widely used in nut butters because it helps minimise oil separation and is inexpensive. However, palm oil is nutrient-poor, and other added fats such as almond oil have more positive effects on health. Worse yet, the palm oil industry is contributing to large-scale deforestation and is pushing many species to extinction…basically, palm oil kinda sucks, no matter how people spin the story.
Good question! We recognise that dairy farming is in some ways not ideal for the environment. However, whey is a byproduct of cheesemaking that would otherwise be discarded, making it more sustainable than many people believe. What's more, because whey protein is exceptionally high-quality protein (in terms of the gold-standard measure of protein quality, which is based on amino acid composition and digestibility), you don't need that much of it to benefit. As a result, if you’re using whey to replace some of your protein intake from other foods, you might well be reducing your carbon footprint in the process. So, for the time being, we’re sticking to using whey protein (sourced locally here in the UK), but we remain on the lookout for an eco-friendly protein that is truly muscle-friendly too…watch this space!
You can buy Resilient Nutrition at NatureDoc, Beyond The Ultimate and Amazon. We hope to get to the high street some time in 2022 but the best place to buy is always here on the site.
All our products are manufactured and packaged in the UK by Nutural World. We collaborated extensively with the team at Nutural World to create Long Range Fuel, combining their knowledge and experience in creating super tasty nut butters and nut-based spreads with our scientific expertise and experience with performance nutrition formulation.
Royal Mail and UPS are our primary delivery services and use their standard service to keep your delivery costs down. Our standard UK delivery time is 2-3 working days but we do offer express services if you need things urgently. We aim to process all orders made before midday to go out in the afternoon post.
We can ship to most countries in Europe and we are working on putting in place international distribution. It’s all part of our master plan to use our nuts to take over the world. If you would like to be the first to know when our products go global, keep in touch and we will let you know!
