19g of cane sugar per serving x 20 servings in the bag = 380 grams of sugar. The entire weight of the bag is 440 grams, which means that 86% of the content is sugar.
Your money would be much better spent buying a $15 Calcium-Magnesium powder (that will last for months) and having control of any sugar you add (if any) to your drink mix.
Sports drinks have never been a fondness of mine. On one end, you have drinks like C4, and indeed there is a use case, but not for people like me who are just out to keep fit. Then there's "sports" drinks like Gatorade, which are sugary, expensive, and a little bit. . . useless. For a long time, I really didn't use any additives in my water, but at one point I started searching for something that wouldn't be obscenely sweet, and wouldn't come with nasty side effects, but would just give me some extra sustaining power, and one person suggested Skratchlabs to me.
Now, I could spend some time going over the menial details of the flavor, but let me just put it this way: it's good. I like it. Your mileage may vary. It's a light and refreshing lemon/lime flavor, and part of me has begun wondering if tossing in a bit of mint might actually not be an awful idea. When used as directed, it's not offensively sweet as are drinks like Gatorade, and this falls directly in line with Skratchlabs' Hydration mix's purpose of being a hydration booster and endurance extender than an actual fuel. This is great, because it does two things: keeps the flavor palatable, and keeps the actual calorie content of the mixture down, allowing higher burn rates from other sources. Bottom line is that it's a crisp, clean, flavor, and it's not something that you'd get tired of drinking after a few sips.
Actual effectiveness wise, I'd say endurance-wise, for the purposes of cycling, the actual endurance boost I get out of using this is highly variable, as there are just too many variables involved to try and quantify the effect in the scope of one dude casually cycling. I will say that, from a subjective standpoint, the difference is night and day. If I had to guess, on average, my range goes up at least 35% simply due to fatigue and muscle fatigue not setting in as fast. As a disclaimer, I would like to acknowledge the possibility that the Placebo effect plays a role here, but I have serious doubts that this could explain all of it.
For the purposes of an indoor gym environment, wherein I have substantially more control over the variables at play, the data is a little more concrete. The difference was staggering. Normally, my routine consists of 10 minutes or so of stretching, 2km of rowing, 35 minutes on an exercise bike at a resistance level that roughly emulates cruising at 100RPM and 13-15mph, and then 5x5 of anything I can think of for my arms until I get too exhausted to continue. The difference here, was that I really *didn't* get exhausted. What actually happened was that I could essentially continue until muscle fatigue set in and decreased performance. In endurance-type environments such as cycling, this was a little more subtle, but the number of reps I could push my arms to was visibly higher.
Overall, 6 months of use later, I'm going to give this my seal of approval. My seal of approval is completely worthless, but I like this stuff, it works, and it's exactly what I would want from a sports drink.
Developed for professional bike racers about 10 years ago riding the TourDeFrance . Some of the teams have sponsors that provide drinks the riders are supposed to use. After this product was developed they poured out their water bottles and put this stuff in.
I also like it as it contains 80 calories per bottle. Sometimes as we are cranking along on my rides I don't have time to eat a power bar. So if I drink 3 bottles on a 50 mile ride I'm getting 240 calories. Not all I need but about half. Best of all I've tried 3 flavors over the years and they all taste good. If anything slightly under sweetened and flavored (all natural) which is better if you are working hard on the bike. In theory you can add more or less powder to adjust the taste.
If it sounds like I am a "shill" for this stuff I'm not. Just someone who likes to perform well with my fellow bike riders and sleep through the night without crippling cramps. A little on the expensive site but well worth it.
Edit: Skratch Labs provides a money back guarantee if you're not 100% satisfied with their product so I called them, but instead of refunding my purchase price, I agreed to them provide an equivalent amount of single sizes of each of the Lemon/Lime, Macha Green Tea, and Passion Fruit as well as some chews and energy bars. My favorite flavor are the Macha Green Tea items with Lemon/Lime being my second favorite. The other fruit flavors just aren't really that good. So although I'm leaving my rating for the Strawberry Sport Mix as a 1 star, I would give some other flavors 4 or 5 stars as they tasted good and seemed to get the job done as an energy drink.
No electrolyte mixes have enough potassium IMO, so I add a bit of potassium gluconate when I mix up a bottle.
Caffeine minimal, at 16 mg per serving, but maybe not the right choice for an evening workout.
I like the bulk so I can use more or less than one serving depending on my planned workout
