This 1.9 lbs canister will make 28 servings, each with about 120 calories. The formulation was developed by leading exercise physiologists working with real athletes, both cyclists and triathletes, to determine their caloric, sodium, and other core fuel requirements. Accelerade offers rapid hydration and delivers all-natural protein while you're working out to re-energize muscles both during exercise and after exercise. Only Accelerade contains the patented 4-1 ratio of carbohydrate to protein, which equates to about 16 calories to 7 calories in each equal amount served. This blend is claimed to be optimal to speed the movement of carbohydrate energy into muscles. Studies at sports science labs show that protein-powdered Accelerade can extend athletic endurance up to 24% as compared to other sports drinks. Serious athletes should consider trying Accelerade, especially with the science behind it.
