Energy Gel Cookbook

Since the launch of Energy Gel Central last year, I've received numerous inquiries from website visitors asking how to create an energy gel truly from scratch.  So in response, I put together the following 'e-cookbook', Secrets from Inside an Energy Gel: Learn how to make homemade energy gels using industry-based recipes. The e-book ($1.99) includes lots of background information and tips, and most importantly, complete energy gel base recipes using easily sourced ingredients. In addition, a chapter dedicated to creating cloned bases of several popular commercial energy gels is also present. The Table of Contents is listed below to get an idea of the book content.
