Why Chocolate Milk?
Chocolate/Strawberry milk naturally includes carbohydrates to refuel muscles, protein to reduce muscle breakdown and stimulate growth and fluid and electrolytes to replenish what is lost in sweat and body heat. Fat free flavored milks are emerging to be an equivalent or often better choice compared to other beverages, specifically sports drinks and soy protein beverages, by re-hydrating the body after endurance exercise and helping to repair and rebuild muscle after resistance exercise. Compared to other beverages, chocolate milk provides the needed nutrients in a convenient great tasting, inexpensive package.
What is Recovery Brik?
Recovery Brik is a ready-to-drink post-workout beverage which naturally contains all the protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed after a physical activity. Recovery Brik is available in chocolate and strawberry milk
When should I use Recovery Brik?
Recovery Brik is meant to be used immediately after activity. The amount consumed will depend on both body weight and the intensity of the activity you just completed. Typically 1-2 servings after a workout is recommended.
Why should I drink Recovery Brik after activity?
The real gain of exercise occurs during recovery, but only in the presence of adequate rest and optimal nutritional support. Immediately after activity your body has a window of about 30 minutes for maximum absorption of carbohydrates and protein. (Working out depletes the carbohydrates in your muscles). Recovery also provides electrolytes, anti-oxidants, and supplemental amino acids. Electrolytes replace what you sweat out, anti-oxidants fight the oxidative stress of activity, and specific amino acids boost your immune system and help with glycogen re-synthesis.
How is Recovery Brik different from other recovery drinks on the market?

What is the carbohydrate to protein ratio in Recovery Brik?

Is there caffeine in Recovery Brik?

Does Recovery Brik have to be refrigerated?
Recovery Brik is shelf stable, aseptic packaged UHT milk and has a usable shelf life of about 1 year and can be stored at room temperatures without refrigeration. A 'best if used by' date is included on every package as with other shelf stable products. Once the package is opened it reacts like any other regular milk and needs to be refrigerated.
What is UHT milk?
UHT stands for Ultra High Temperature and refers to the method of pasteurization. This unique thermo process uses a much higher than normal pasteurization temperature, modifies the length of time the milk is held at that temperature, and then cools the milk (all in a continuously pressurized environment) before it is stored in an aseptic package. The elevated temperature destroys all pathogenic and spoilage bacteria and the packaging hermetically seals the milk to retain freshness. This results in a shelf stable, extended life, no refrigeration needed milk that does not contain (or require) any preservatives.
Is Recovery Brik made from Grade A milk?
Yes. Recovery Brik is made from premium quality Grade A milk.
What is Tetra Pak?
