Skratch for Vegans

June 11, 2021

We create products that solve problems which means every ingredient has a purpose. That purpose is to help people perform better. We focus on real ingredients and promote an equally healthy lifestyle. Our products are made from real food ingredients to help you bust your butt not your gut.

The creation and evolution of our products has always stemmed from evidence based problem solving – on what we, to the best of our knowledge, understand as real. This emphasis on real is core to our identity. In it there is an earnest attempt to always learn, to solve problems, and to communicate with both intellectual humility and humor. Intellectual humility being the ability to change one’s mind when presented with new and compelling evidence. Humor being able to cut to the truth in a way that is delightful rather than intimidating or threatening.

A question we get asked is which of yours products are vegan? So we put together a rundown on all our vegan products!

Use when sweating. Drink to thirst.

Sport Hydration Drink Mix was created 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 reimagined sports drinks, stripping ours down to the bare essentials to safely hydrate and quench thirst, so that
athletes feel and perform better.
• The right electrolyte profile: contains the average sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium lost in sweat, allowing thirst to be a better gauge for hydration.
• Hydrate faster: when glucose and sodium are transported together across the gut, this also moves water, allowing for faster hydration compared to water alone.
• The right amount of sugar: enough sugar to improve performance during exercise but not so much to ever cause GI-distress.
• Easy to drink: to alleviate GI-distress and flavor fatigue, we eliminate functionless ingredients like artificial sweeteners and colors, using only real fruit for superior taste.
• Meets special dietary needs: non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, kosher.

Consistent fueling for hard workouts.

Sport Energy Chews are an easy and convenient source of carbohydrate to help maintain blood sugar and performance during hard and long workouts. We use slightly more water for an improved texture that make them easier to
chew and only real fruit for flavor, for a clean, natural, and incredible taste. It’s a gumdrop that’s actually a delicious high-performance fruit-drop.
• Fast & sustained energy: a specific ratio of glucose + fructose to speed the absorption of energy into the body, and pectin to create a solid form factor that keeps the energy flowing at a steady rate.
• No GI-distress: free from the waxes, oils, preservatives, artificial colors, and flavoring agents common to other chews that can wreak havoc on the gut.
• More sodium: sodium is the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, so we add a little bit of sodium (80 mg per serving) to help replace what’s lost.
• Awesome taste: real fruit and a light dusting of granulated sour sugar for function and taste--seriously, they’re so delicious, it’s not even fair.
• Meets special dietary needs: gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

Balanced plant-based.

Sport Vegan Recovery For vegan athletes who need something delicious and convenient to drink immediately after emptying the tank in long, hard workouts, we created SportVegan Recovery Drink Mix. Made with only plant-based protein, it has what you need to rapidly refuel, rehydrate, and rebuild so you can go big again tomorrow.
• Refuel faster: 4:1 carb to protein ratio speeds recovery faster than protein alone.
• Rebuild stronger: 10 grams of pea and rice protein per serving provide the complete essential amino acid profile to accelerate muscle repair and growth.
• Rehydrate, too: an electrolyte profile that matches what’s lost in sweat for improved hydration.
• Delicious taste: real chocolate, cane sugar, and no artificial sweeteners or flavoring agents delight your taste buds with no aftertaste.
• Easy to digest: light and easy on the gut, with one billion probiotic cultures per serving to support digestive health.• Meets special dietary needs: vegan, non-GMO, kosher gluten-free, dairy-free.

Real food. Unreal flavor.

Anytime Energy Bars bring convenience to real food snacks and are designed as a fuel source for when you need it most. We make them from scratch with fruit, nuts, nut butters, and quinoa for a nutrition profile that’s suitable for a snack anytime you’re hungry or during prolonged activity.
• Simple Fuel: made as simple as possible without sacrificing taste or quality, using only whole-food ingredients.
• Sustained energy: a mixed macronutrient profile for steady digestion and absorption with 4-5g of protein from nuts & nut butters.
• Easier digestion: half as much sugar as the leading energy bar*, no protein isolates or brown rice syrup, free from anything artificial, and no preservatives.
• Meets special dietary needs: non-GMO, gluten-free, plant-based, vegetarian, kosher.

*Skratch Labs Anytime Energy Bar: 9-11g of sugar per serving; Leading Energy Bar: 21g of sugar per serving

Liquid calories for your biggest days.

Sport Superfuel Drink Mix was designed to fuel and hydrate athletes for their biggest days. Each serving provides 400 calories, enough to power a 2-3 hour effort for most endurance athletes, or an extremely intense one-hour effort for
an elite athlete. Use it when there's no time to chew.
• Concentrated liquid energy: made with Cluster DextrinTM, an extraordinarily complex carbohydrate that is highly soluble but digests steadily like real food, alleviating the risk of GI-distress.
• Easy fueling: a convenient high-calorie drink mix for when there's no time to chew or carry real food.
• Faster water absorption, less GI-distress: one serving provides 400 kcals at a molecular concentration significantly lower than blood, helping to maximize water transport by both osmosis and sodium-glucose co-transport.
• Electrolytes to rehydrate: 400 mg of sodium per serving from sodium citrate to help replace the electrolytes lost in sweat.
• Easy to drink: a drink mix with a viscosity close to water.
• Meets special dietary needs: non-GMO ingredients, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, kosher.

For rapid rehydration.

Wellness Hydration Drink Mix is not a sports drink but a powdered Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS), ideal for fluid and electrolyte replacement. It is based on recommendations developed by the World Health Organization
(WHO) with clinical levels of electrolytes and zinc for rapid rehydration.
• For when you need it most: formulated to address nutrient
deficiencies caused by heightened dehydration or extreme exercise.
• Quickly replace water & electrolytes: contains less sugar, twice the sodium, six times the potassium, and a small amount of zinc compared to our Sport Hydration Drink Mix.
• Easy to drink: made with natural ingredients and only real fruit for flavor; free from excess ingredients, artificial sweeteners, and coloring agents.
• Meets special dietary needs: non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, kosher.

For the longest, hottest workouts.

Hyper Hydration is formulated to pre-load the body with extra water and sodium ahead of really long and hot workouts. Combined with a small amount of sugar, real fruit for flavor, and four times the sodium of our Sport Hydration Drink Mix, it functions as drinkable saline for extreme activities in
extreme environments.
• Increases water & sodium reserves: a sodium concentration equivalent to blood (3500 mg of sodium per Liter) to maximize the amount of water your vascular system can hold.
• Preemptively hydrate: extremely high sodium content is designed to “hyper hydrate” immediately before grueling situations when you know you’ll be losing more water and salt in your sweat than you can consume during exercise.
• Sodium citrate for lactic acid buffering & easy absorption: unlike sodium chloride, sodium citrate can buffer lactic acid and is much easier on the gut, making “Hyper” an easy way to supplement more sodium during exercise.
• Palatable & effective: made with natural ingredients, only real fruit for flavor, and just enough sugar to maximize the movement of water into the body.
