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 Skratch Labs' 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.
Skratch Labs 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.
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 provide fast 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.
They’ve weeded out all the excess ingredients that you don’t need like carnauba wax, colouring agents, and mystery flavours that get to be called natural. Instead, they use real fruit and a light dusting of granulated sugar and sour powder for function and taste. They work. They’re delicious.
Things to remember:
- The usage of two types of carbs (glucose and fructose) speeds the absorption of energy in your body.
- Zero preservatives, colouring, or waxes.
- Gluten free, dairy free, and vegan.
