Chocolate milk and HFCS...

Argh.

Though I'm an endurox guy, I would sometimes grab a chocolate milk to use as a recovery drink now and then.

But Darigold has reformulated, switching from sucrose to high fructose corn syrup, so with my reaction to fructose around exercise, means that I'm out of luck.

Powdered chocolate milk is all you need.

chocolate milk as a recovery drink may not be as bad as you think.

i find instant coffee is perfect to spoon into the trap right after a good hard workout. Keeps that heart rate nice and elevated for another hour or two. Water is optional.

I've eaten chocolate covered espresso beans, and even crunched a few whole coffee beans, but this sounds a bit hardcore for me!

I prefer chocolate soy milk. As addicted as I am to chocolate milk, it can make me sick after more than 6 oz at one time. I had to switch to chocolate soy milk or give it up.

None of the soy milks I drink have HFCS, which is more than I can say for most mainstream chocolate milks that I find. This is a plus for me.

Yes, but I'm fairly sensitive to fructose in general. I can't eat raw apples or drink apple juice because of the high fructose content, and drinking a soda sweetened with HFCS after a ride is guaranteed to make my stomach hurt within a few sips.

But you do understand that Sucrose is a disaccharide containing fructose? HFCS is high in fructose compared to regular corn syrup, not sucrose.

HFCS used in soft drinks etc is 55% fructose 45% glucose. Sucrose is 50:50... not that big a difference; you want a glucose polymer like malodextrin.
