Multisport athlete and FTM product tester - Ben Morris - describes why and how he uses Skratch Labs Recovery Mix!

Sport Recovery Drink Mix is a new and improved version of Skratch Labs original Endurance Recovery Drink Mix. We improved the recipe by adding a probiotic to help with absorption of protein as well as lactase which helps with anyone who has issues with milk products or lactose. It was created for people who need to refuel with a great tasting recovery drink free of excess ingredients. Next to a freshly cooked meal, this is the best way we know how to nurture you after your toughest workouts.

Skratch Labs Sport Recovery Mix is intended for use immediately after exercise, especially when that bout of exercise leaves you feeling hungry, when you don't have a meal made from scratch readily available, and when you want to fast track the recovery process.

Because the Sport Recovery Mix is a whole food product made with only real natural ingredients, you can also use it when your metabolism is on the fast track and you're so hungry that you're being a menace to yourself and others.

To prepare simply add one serving (one packet) to enough water to make 12fl oz and shake (don't stir).

The first ingredient is sugar- what’s up with that?
We have been taught that sugar is bad for us. I know that because we keep getting asked this question about sugar. But if you lead an active lifestyle, sugar is pretty important.

In small amounts during exercise, sugar is absolutely one of the most important and ergogenic** substances out there. Not only is having some calories critical for maintaining blood glucose and exercise performance, a little bit of real sugar paired with sodium significantly enhances the rate of water absorption through the small intestine. This is why clinically based oral rehydration solutions developed by the World Health Organization contain sugar and glucose just like Skratch- it hydrates you better. Which is kind of a good quality to have in a product designed to do just that.

Sugar free may be great if you’re sitting on your butt all day, but if you’re working hard and sweating, a bit of sugar will improve your performance significantly.

**(Just in case you’re anything like the guy transcribing these answers, “ergogenic” means: an external influence that can be determined to enhance performance in high-intensity exercises.” And that’s straight outta Wikipedia so you know it has to be true. I mean, it’s not like anyone can just add any information they want, right?)

Ultimately, what's bad for us when we are sitting on the couch can be extremely performance enhancing when we are active. So if you're not sweating and working hard, don't use our Exercise Hydration Drink Mix- that word “Exercise” is in there for a reason. But if you are sweating you need to put back both the water and the electrolytes you’re losing and can best do that with a drink that contains a little bit of sugar and plenty of sodium.

Why do we use milk in the Endurance Recovery Mix?
We use milk primarily as a protein source. Milk protein which is made up of whey protein and casein protein is a complete protein containing all of the essential amino acids needed for human growth and function. In fact, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations recently recommended a new standard for assessing protein quality - the Digestible Indispensable Amino Acid Score. Using this standard, complete milk protein is amongst the highest quality protein for humans, scoring higher than either whey protein alone, casein protein alone, or any vegetable protein source. While many companies, deconstruct milk protein, complete milk protein is clearly superior, containing a ratio of whey and casein protein designed by nature and optimal for humans.
In addition to protein, using a combination of whole milk and non-fat milk also allows us to control the fat content of the drink, helping to improve taste and also providing fat which is a critical macronutrient.

Why does the Endurance Recovery Mix contain sugar?
Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix contains a lot of sugar (36 g total carbohydrate / 33 g sugar) because the primary purpose of this product is to refuel athletes immediately after exercise by stimulating the re-synthesis of stored carbohydrate (i.e., sugar) or glycogen in muscle. In the context of post-exercise recovery, this process is improved by using simple sugars with a high glycemic index which rapidly increases blood sugar and insulin. That rapid rise in blood sugar helps to fast track fuel back into muscle while insulin which is one of the most anabolic hormones produced by the body helps the body to regenerate and rebuild. Out of the context of post-exercise recovery, this product isn’t recommended. It’s important to realize that what may be performance enhancing in the context of endurance training may be very bad for us in the context of a sedentary lifestyle.

How long will the Endurance Recovery Mix last once prepared?
The same food safety advice for the preparation and use of powdered milk and infant formula also apply to Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix. Based on the CDC’s recommendations for the safe use of infant formula make sure to: 

  • Use your Endurance Recovery Mix within 2 hours of preparation.
  • Refrigerate your prepared Endurance Recovery Mix immediately after preparation if you do not plan to drink it within 2 hours and drink within 24 hours of refrigeration.
  • Use common sense when handling any food including Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix. This means, preparing foods in a hygienic environment, using sterile containers and water, and preparing food only after washing hands with soap and hot water.
  • Throw it out, if in doubt.
Does the Endurance Recovery Mix contain Wheat/Gluten/Soy/Nuts?
No, Skratch Labs Endurance Recovery Mix is completely free of wheat, gluten, soy, and nuts.

Is Skratch Kosher?
Yes! Skratch is Kosher approved by The Scroll K - Vaad Hakashurs of Denver.
