At Skratch Labs we believe it's never too late to start from scratch.
We are based in Boulder, Colorado and founded by two cycling pros who spent years on the Pro Cycling Tour watching teammates eat terribly and suffer through bad-tasting sports “nutrition” that ruined their stomachs. So we did something about it. Skratch Labs started as a “secret drink mix” made of real sugar, salt, and fruit powder, mixed together in a 5-gallon paint bucket at local Boulder hardware store, McGuckin Hardware. We wanted to help pro cyclists feel better and ride faster, and they did. Nearly a decade later, our approach is the same: help athletes perform better by solving their nutrition problems without causing new ones, using real food ingredients.

The right amount of sugar: Enough sugar to improve performance during exercise but not so much to ever cause GI-distress.
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 electrolyte profile: Contains the average sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium lost in sweat, allowing thirst to be a better gauge for hydration.
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.
*Caffeine for focus and energy: 50mg of caffeine per serving from coffee berry for an extra boost (equal to about half a cup of coffee.) *Rasberry Limeade Only
Refuel faster: Made using complete milk protein that provides a 4:1 carb to protein ratio that speeds recovery better than carbs or protein alone.
Rebuild stronger: Per gram of protein, complete milk protein contains the highest level of essential amino acids – which are essential for muscle repair and growth.
Rehydrate better: An electrolyte profile that matches what’s lost in sweat for improved hydration.
Easy to digest: Probiotics plus the enzyme lactase, to break down milk lactose for those who are lactose intolerant, for better digestion.
Incredible taste: For those who have tried, no explanation is necessary. For those who haven’t, no explanation is possible.
