High5 Energy Source
Advanced 2:1 blend, with an attractive taste and price
High5 were early pioneers of energy drinks that contained the carbohydrate blend of two parts glucose to one part fructose – a ratio appropriately known as the ‘2:1’ blend.
Proven to increase the level of carbohydrate absorption when compared to conventional glucose-only drinks, it’s therefore no surprise that High5’s EnergySource uses this blend.
It also contains the electrolyte minerals sodium and potassium to replenish losses from sweat and increase hydration, as well as using only natural flavourings and containing no artificial sweeteners.
Mixing as directed resulted in a light, refreshing citrus flavour that won praise from our testers, who declared it to be authentic and natural in its flavour with no unpleasant aftertaste.
Combined with the wallet-friendly low price (it has an RRP value of just 1.4 pence per gram of carbohydrate, a price that gets even lower at some outlets), High5’s EnergySource certainly delivers for the money.
