It’s your most important day of training. It’s the biggest race of the season. Everything you’ve worked for is on the line. Don’t choke. Chew. Get it?
Sport Energy Chews can essentially be described as a candy gumdrop made of sugar and pectin. Or even a version of cooled down fruit pie filling that you forgot to put in a pie. The caveat though is that our Sport Energy chews are made for when you’re working out, not just for when you’re hungry for pie filling, which for us is most of the time.
We created these chews as an energy supplement for when you’re going hard and the best thing to keep you going is a steady source of carbohydrate that won’t destroy your stomach or gut. And hopefully, you get that when we say energy, we mean fuel or calories. You know, like the first law of thermodynamics where energy is neither created nor destroyed. Not like the kind of “energy” you get after washing a handful of caffeine pills down with your sixth cup of coffee.
But, let’s get back to chews. The unique thing about a chew is that they’ve got a physical form factor that allows them to be loaded and held up in the stomach. As they’re digested, they trickle into the gut to provide a consistent and steady stream of energy. They’re a great alternative if you’ve ever gotten sick from really sweet and gooey gels, because gooey things tend to empty from the stomach faster than the gut can absorb. And when that happens, there’s nowhere for that gooey stuff to go except to where the light does not shine. So with energy chews, you get what seems like a paradox – quick but steady energy that won’t rot your gut. It’s similar to how gravity bends both space and time, but that’s more than you need to know.
So, what makes our Energy Chews different than all the others? Well, first the taste. Put them in your mouth and if you don’t agree that they’re awesome, we’ll give you your money back and send you a piece of humble pie. Second, is that we’ve weeded out all the excess ingredients that you don’t need like carnauba wax, coloring agents, and mystery flavors that get to be called natural. Instead, we use real fruit and a light dusting of granulated sugar and sour powder for function and taste. They work. They’re delicious. And you better not eat them in the car (unless you’re heading to a workout or race).
Things to remember:
The usage of two types of carbs (glucose and fructose) speeds the absorption of energy in your body.
Pouch Size: 50g- contains 2, 25g servings Amount Per Serving: Calories 70, Calories from Fat 0, Total Fat 0g (0% DV), Saturated Fat 0g (0% DV), Trans Fat 0g, Cholesterol 0mg (0% DV), Sodium 80mg (3% DV), Total Carbohydrate 18g (7% DV), Fiber 0g (0% DV), Sugars 12g, Protein 0g. Percent Daily Values (DV) are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
The new Sour Cherry flavor adds 50mg of caffeine per pack from green tea for some extra boost and focus. They’re like cherries in sport mode.
To use: As a starting point, consume one package of Energy Chews (containing 140 Calories and 36 grams of carbohydrate) each hour for activities lasting longer than 2 hours, beginning the first hour. If you’re going super hard and super long, you may even try up to 2 packages per hour. As a reference point, it’s rare to find someone who can absorb more than 100 grams of carbohydrate per hour. So don’t try and be a hero. Leave that for showing up on time to work.
Skratch Labs - Sport Hydration Drink Mix
Our Sport Hydration Drink Mix was created for a simple purpose - to replace the electrolytes lost in sweat and to provide a little bit of energy when working out, without offending your palate or gut.
We initially created this drink because some of the world’s best athletes needed better. Conventional sports drinks made them sick. They were undrinkable - too sweet, over-flavored, and didn’t even replace what was lost in sweat – which defeated the whole purpose, like fighting thirst with more thirst.
The best athletes needed something to safely hydrate, something to quench their thirst, and something to help them perform better. So with their help, we reimagined sports drinks, stripping down what used to be a neon-colored carnival to its bare essentials. In the process, we learned that simple wasn’t just better for elite athletes, it was better for everyone who works hard and sweats.
The result is a sports drink with less sugar (4% or 4 g per 100 ml) and a ratio of sugar (glucose + fructose) that is optimized for faster absorption, an electrolyte profile that actually matches what is lost in sweat (800 mg sodium, 80 mg potassium, 100 mg calcium, and 80 mg of magnesium per liter), and only real fruit for flavor for a light and refreshing taste that you can drink all day. That’s it - less sugar, the right electrolyte profile, and real fruit. So, if you’ve never met a sports drink you wanted to take home, your luck is about to change.
Drink when thirsty and leaking like a busted fire hydrant. Don’t drink while deep in the middle of a Netflix marathon session or sending emails (unless, you’re also on your trainer). Meaning, if you haven’t earned it, you don’t deserve it.
Also, you might like to know that these drink mixes are verified non-GMO, gluten free, dairy free, vegan and Kosher cause that's just how they came out.
Matcha & Lemon: Cane Sugar, Dextrose, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Matcha Green Tea, Magnesium Lactate, Calcium Citrate, Potassium Citrate, Lemon Oil, Lemon Juice, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C). Contains about 16 mg of naturally occurring caffeine from the Matcha tea (per 16 fl oz.). For comparison, an 8oz cup of coffee has 70-100 mg of caffeine.
To use add one scoop to 350 to 500 ml of water and shake. As a starting point, drink 1-2 servings for each hour of exercise, but also mind your thirst. Drink when thirsty. Don’t drink when not thirsty.
You may be the type who likes to gaze at your sports drink after shaking. If so, you may see small particles that don’t dissolve completely. What you’re seeing is called fruit. That stuff that people are always telling you to eat. So relax and enjoy. It’s real food for real flavor.
Things to remember:
2X the sodium and 1/2 the sugar of conventional sports drinks
Verified non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and Kosher
Made with real fruit
If you don’t replace what you lose in your sweat you may not be rehydrating
Skratch Labs - Anytime Energy Bar
For years professional athletes who rely heavily on energy bars to fuel themselves in training and racing have complained that the bars they ate were too dry, too hard to chew, sat in their bellies and guts like bricks, and just didn’t taste good.
