The most calorie-packed 'bottle' out there.
A cool-looking sports drink mix indeed, but is it worth the hype? Hear us out. Superfuel Drink Mix secures:
- up to 20x more calorie-packed than other sports drinks
- steady release of energy for over 5 hours
- without the risk of gastrointestinal distress
- carbs more tolerable for the gut
This mighty powder is based on Cluster Dextrin, a carbohydrate that digests a little slower than classic Glucose and Fructose, making it more tolerable for the gut. While it is always better to eat real food, bars and all, you usually can't grab a bite during a race or really intense exercise, thus needing to take in calories in liquid form.
Cluster Dextrin has 60-70 units linked together, compared to 3-20 in maltodextrin, the most common carbohydrate. That allows it to have way more calories per bottle than any other drink. It also takes time to break all the units off the chain, providing you with a steady release of energy without the risk of gastrointestinal distress.
Superfuel adds 400mg of sodium per bottle to really help replenish your lost electrolytes in the race.
Steady release of energy for over 5 hrs.
While there are several high-performance drinks on the market, we only swear by two – Superfuel by Skratch and Maurten 320. Each is a bit different and has it's unique role in your fuelling strategy.
Superfuel provides a gradual boost for hours and hours on, making it great for longer events such as Ironman races, ultra-marathons and actually anything over 4 or 5 hours. Maurten releases carbs faster, and is more useful for shorter races up to 5 hrs and as quick energy replenishment during a run leg of a triathlon, for example. Explore the two of them in training and find what works best for you.
About Skratch: real fruit from scratch.
"Sometimes the best option is the simplest option. You don't sweat Red Dye #40, so why drink it?" – Dr. Allen Lim, Sports Physiologist & Skratch founder
Dr. Allen Lim has always been making training food and drinks for his professional cycling team from scratch. Until today, Skratch Labs is very closely tied to the EF Education First Nippo Pro-Tour team.
Why going the extra mile? Most supplements on the market were using too many artificial ingredients, which would often upset the stomach of his athletes.
The Skratch hydration mix was literally made in his home kitchen in Boulder, Colorado, by scaling back on sugar and adding sodium while using real fruit, in order to better match an athlete's needs.
Skratch products is the closest to making your nutrition from scratch: you can always count they on them using clean ingredients and minimum artificial stuff.
