Whey Protein Isolate
The whey protein isolate in 4:1 is the very highest quality. The Food & Agricultural Organisation have an internationally recognised method to compare the quality of various proteins. This is known as the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS). An ideal protein will have a PDCAAS score of 1.0. The Protein used in 4:1 has a even higher score of 1.14. It’s also high in Leucine, an amino acid.
“The mixed fruit flavor is fresh, tasty and the whey protein aids recovery”

“High5’s 4:1 energy source contains a mix of maltodextrin and fructose sugar sources, as recent research has revealed that fuel uptake can be maximized if multiple sources of carbohydrates are taken on board together”

Dosage & Usage
If you don’t intend to use 4:1 for all of your training, it is particularly useful if you anticipate a big step-change in mileage, such as a training camp. It’s also fantastic for multi-day endurance racing, as the carbohydrate content is standard 2:1 fructose EnergySource. Find out more in the Nutrition Guides section.
The electrolyte levels in 4:1 should be adequate for most race conditions. However, when sweat rates are very high, we recommend adding a ZERO (Neutral) tab to every 500ml of 4:1 to boost the electrolyte content further.
