This drink is designed to recharge your muscles both during and after exercise, giving you 167 calories of energy in a 500ml mix (a standard water bottle), including nearly 30g of carbs. You also get 6g of protein, so it’s a 5:1 carbs: protein mix, give or take. That’s enough stats.
What makes the Multipower drink different from most is that it contains PeptoPro. Huh? Here’s the science bit… PeptoPro is a pre-digested milk protein. Rather than being packed with fully formed proteins, it contains peptides, built from amino acids, that your body links together to form proteins – there’s no need to break them down first, saving time and energy. Geddit? That all seems logical
Pre-digested proteins usually taste bitter, but this doesn’t – perhaps not too surprising because there is a lot of sucrose in here. You might have your own opinion, of course, but we found the orange flavour really palatable. It’s also pretty light on your stomach – it’s easy to gulp down like a normal energy drink. We like it a lot and have had good results over the past couple of weeks – energy levels have been high and we’ve had no worries with recovery between rides.
You get 17 servings per tub, which works out at under 80p a go if you get it at the £13.50 discount price.
Tasty carb drink with peptides to boost your recovery quickly

Mat has worked for more bike magazines than anyone else in the known universe, dating back to a time when this was all just fields. He's been road.cc technical editor for four years, testing bikes, fettling the latest kit, and trying out the most up-to-the-minute clothing. We send him off around the world to get all the news from launches and shows too. When he's not cycling around Wiltshire, he's running around it, or possibly swimming (sadly, he's one of those 'triathletes'). Mat is a youthful 42-year-old Cambridge graduate, GSOH etc.
