As the name suggests, this drink from High5 contains carbohydrate and protein in a 4:1 ratio. Confusingly the carbohydrate element is made up of another 4:1 ratio – ‘Super Carbs’ glucose and fructose – designed to increase energy delivery to working muscles and reduce dehydration.
We’re told the protein element boosts available energy for endurance athletes. With antioxidant and electrolyte compounds too, there’s a mouthful of science to digest, so it’s a good thing citrus and summer fruit ﬂavours taste good. It’s a bit on the pricey side though.
