The Performance and Expedition Ranges from Radix

A common question I get, after recommending people to check out the Radix products, is which range to go for.

In Radix’s words…

Performance – Gain a competitive edge through improved recovery.

Expedition – For explorers, adventurers and endurance athletes.

Ok, what does that mean to me?

While very similar, there are a couple of key differences which can lead to a choice based on priorities and, like many things, required needs.

In a nutshell, though, the expedition series is heavier and requires less water.

Nutritionally, you get more calories with the expedition, generally through more fat in the form of Coconut Oil.

Want to most bang for your buck, weight to calorie wise, and, not sure on the amount of water that might be available (or wanting to carry less) – the Expedition would be the go. A little more relaxed? Go Performance.

While the ranges aren’t exactly the same, there are a couple of meal options that do cross over – let’s look at one of them.

Performance Moroccan Style Wild Venison

Ingredients: Celery, Leek, Cauliflower, Wild Venison Meatballs (11%) [Wild Venison (90%), Organic Rice Flour, Parsley, Ginger, Pink Himalayan Salt, Rosemary Extract, Sunflower Oil], Pumpkin, Red Capsicum, Beetroot, Organic White Rice, Plum, Organic Olive Oil, Beef Bone Broth, Pink Himalayan Salt, Cumin, Smoked Paprika, Turmeric, Coriander Leaf, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cardamom, Garlic, Parsley, Cinnamon

118g – requires 400ml boiling water – total ‘weight’ = 518g 0r 4.98kj per gram.

I know Mike (Radix’s owner) hates simplifying things down to a simple calorie statement, but, in this case, I think it’s going to help me illustrate my point, so bear with me Mike!

It should be noted that both the Performance and Expedition meals are larger and ‘more filling’ than the Well Being range – and I would pick for most of us lads, the bigger size will be appreciated. I know I tend to read some Freeze Dried Meal packets and assume a meal for 2 is going to be right for me.

The Performance also has an increase in protein and carbohydrate levels help support athletic training and higher physical workloads. The key is helping recovery here. Big day humping around the hills? Help your body repair overnight for the same thing, the next day.


Expedition Moroccan Style Wild Venison

Ingredients: Wild Venison Meatballs (22%) [Wild Venison (90%), Organic Rice Flour, Parsley, Ginger, Pink Himalayan Salt, Rosemary Extract, Sunflower Oil], Organic White Rice, Leek, Cauliflower, Tomato, Courgette, Red Capsicum, Broccoli, Organic Coconut Milk (Contains Maltodextrin), Ground Almonds, Organic Coconut Oil, Plum, Pink Himalayan Salt, Beef Bone Broth, Ginger, Sweet Paprika, Cumin, Coriander Leaf, Lemongrass, Coriander Seed, Garlic, Turmeric, Smoked Paprika, Cinnamon

140g – requires 270ml water – total ‘weight’ = 410g 0r 8.19kj per gram.

A higher-fat-and-calorie selection of savoury meals. Ideal for explorers, adventurers and high-performance athletes wanting to achieve peak performance in extreme situations. Providing increased energy, high-quality protein and packed with nutrients.

So, again, denser, meaning you get more energy for less weight. It also requires less water, so in situations where you have to manage that a bit more tightly, the adventure range could be the go.
