What Allergens are Present in Your Products?
ACCELERADE, ENDUROX R4, ACCEL GEL and 2ND SURGE each contain dairy products. Each of these products are manufactured in a facility that processes eggs, wheat, tree nuts, fish, crustaceans and shellfish products.

All of our Gels (Accel Gels, 2nd Surge Gels) are Gluten Free. Our Powder products (Accelerade and Endurox R4 and our Recovery Bar) are Gluten Free, however, they are manufactured in a facilities that produces wheat. These facilities are GMP certified and flush all of their lines between productions, but if you are highly sensitive, it could be an issue.
I have a corn allergy, are any of your products free of corn and corn derivatives?
No our products are not free of corn and corn derivatives. Maltodextrin, which is in Accelerade, Accel Gel, and Endurox R4, is made from corn. Our 2nd Surge and Endurox Excel do not contain Maltodextrin, so these products would be safe.
I am Lactose Intolerant; Can I Use Your Products?
The source of protein used in ACCLERADE, ACCEL GEL, 2ND SURGE and ENDUROX R4 is all natural whey protein from milk and this protein source does carry a residual amount of lactose in the finished product. The maximum lactose content is <2%, which may not be of concern to the vast majority of individuals who are lactose intolerant. However, if there is concern due to allergy or lactose intolerance we recommend consulting your physician.
I have Type II diabetes and am looking for a safe workout drink?
All of our products are safe for people who have type II diabetes as long as you are exercising within a short time of consuming the product. Exercise will result in a faster transport of carbohydrate (sugar) into the muscle.
Are Your Products Safe For Children Under The Age of 18?
Yes, all of our products are safe for children except 2nd Surge. The 100 mg of caffeine is too high for children under 18. For basic hydration needs we recommend Accelerade. For advanced recovery needs, we recommend Endurox R4. If your child weighs less than 120 lbs. we recommend reducing the serving of Endurox R4 to 1 scoop.
