Sports Drinks

  • Athletes should drink before they become thirsty to maximize endurance performance as a well-hydrated state ensures a normal plasma osmolality level, therefore minimizing thirst. Functional beverages and foods have the ability to stimulate the energy process and compensate for the loss of nutrients and fluids during physical activity. Keeping this, the functional foods and beverages market is growing in sales especially targeting active individuals making athletes prime consumers.
  • At Pepgra’s contract R&D lab, our food formulation and research scientists formulate functional sports drinks with innovation in flavour, quality and traditional fruit-enhanced options. We offer research and development solutions to a range of products addressing athletes and active people in different forms, such as ready-to-drink, ready-to-eat, and ready-to-mix drinks, capsules, beverages, gummies, syrups, etc. In specific our, our beverages will be developed in the following three kinds: isotonic, hypotonic, and hypertonic, to serve purposes and this will help athletes to supply energy, electrolyte replacement, prevention of dehydration, pre-exercise and post-exercise hydration in order to improve sports performance and minimize fatigue.
  • With our dedicated contract in-house R&D lab, you can trial new varieties and roll our new formulations, which stretch from goodness all the way through to indulgence, and at the same time from budget to premium and personalization, along with from naturalness through to functional benefits.
