This pineapple tastes like pineapple, ‘cause it IS pineapple!
We use real fruit for flavor, never anything artificial. This alleviates GI-distress and flavor fatigue. We eliminate functionless additives like artificial sweeteners and dyes, using only real ingredients like dried fruit powder and cane sugar, for superior taste and performance. You don’t sweat red dye so why drink it?

One of our main considerations in developing our sports drink was to make a readily available product to be absorbed by the gut. One way to enhance this absorption is to control the osmolality of our solution.

Osmolality refers basically to the number of molecules dissolved in one kg of fluid. This term is used to describe any bodily fluid or aqueous solution (meaning solutes in water). When comparing two vessels of solution separated by a membrane, water and solutes will flow from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.

If a sports drink is more concentrated than blood, there will be difficulty absorbing the necessary nutrients. Conversely, if the drink is less concentrated than blood, solutes and some water can freely flow into the body to be utilized. For this reason, it's important to aim for a drink of equal or lesser concentration than blood. To learn more on the science behind this head to our blog, Hydration Science and Practice.

Food additives such as food dye, preservatives, and non-nutritive sweeteners can increase the osmolarity of the consumed beverage which can impair absorption. This, in conjunction with cited inflammatory effects of these additives make for products that fall short of keeping you hydrated and fueled to your full potential, even on your hardest day.
