Freezing Hammer Nutrition Products - HEED and Perpetieum?

Ok this is a question I need an answer to. Going do a long distance travel to get to a bike event soon. 2 days of driving. Event is a long distance race of riding 6 hours +
I will be using my own drink mix of Hammer Nutrition Perpetuem.

Now I rather not bring the big tub i have of it with me. I was thinking of putting it into a bottle with water and freezing the bottle. so nothing goes bad. Question is, would it be reducing/decreasing the effects/nutrition of the Perpetuem by freezing it for 2 days in a bottle?

Would product be ok ? or is it best to only transport in powder form? thanks

Well, you'll probably want it to be cold. One way would be to take a gallon of water in a cooler with a bunch of blue ice and an old yogurt container or similar with Perpetuem, and mix it up the night before, leaving it in the cooler. That's what I'd do. However I have heard of people freezing it just like you say. The trick then is to have it thawed but still cold before the race.

6 hour race, you'll also want to bring a baggie of it with you. One 750 calorie bottle (I'd use a liter bottle) with Perpetuem, one bottle of plain water. A baggie with another 750 calories in it. One fuel and water stop, depending on temps. I'd also bring a flask of Hammer Gel, just in case. Or something like that to fall back on. Also the Endurolytes in a coin purse up my shorts' leg. Perpetuem is an OK recovery drink, too. And not a bad breakfast (400 cal. 2 hours before) if you're really hard core.

Be sure to have a salad and veggies with your carbs after the race, get everything moving again.

How about put the stuff into a dry water bottle, drive up there, and add ice and water on (or near) site?
