Chocolate Milk Makes a Difference for High School Athletes
Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Why draft chocolate milk to your team? It’s the sports drink nature intended. Watch Dallas football pro Tyrone Crawford and high school football coach/researcher Andy Cheshire, Ph.D. explain why they choose chocolate milk.
PROTEIN: 8 grams or more of high quality protein in every 8-ounce glass - vital for building and repairing muscle after games and practices. That’s more protein than an egg.
CARBS-TO-PROTEIN RATIO: The added sugar in chocolate milk is actually a good thing – it raises the carbs-to-protein ratio of a typical glass to the ideal ratio for post-workout recovery.
ELECTROLYTES: Natural electrolytes in chocolate milk replenish what the body loses through sweat at game time, including:
HYDRATION: 90 percent water, it also replaces the fluids lost during a workout.
Check the scoreboard; chocolate milk has more natural protein and less added sugar than these other choices. And you can choose lactose-free milk if you’re lactose intolerant.
