Why did fizzique launch?
fizzique is the brainchild of 3x British Olympian, chemical engineer and protein zealot, David Jenkins. In 1988, David founded NEXT Proteins, intent on changing healthy protein products forever. He did just that from day one with ProOptibol Recovery Formula and then other category-creating protein powders, bars, and drinks. But, he knew there had to be something better out there.
There had to be a more delicious, more nutritious way to deliver pure high-quality refreshing protein. Thus, fizzique was born!
Why sparkling protein?
First of all, who wants boring protein? Between milky, high-calorie shakes and sugar-loaded protein candy bars, we were getting a little sick of the usual protein snack suspects. We wanted to create a drink that was different in every way imaginable - in the way it interacted with your body, in what it could do for you, and in how it tasted. We chose sparkling protein because it’s exactly what we were looking for on our quest to fight your fizzle with fizz.
Why is this the happiest discovery in protein drinks?
Science has shown us that the combination of sparkling carbonation and protein triggers happy places in our taste buds and brain cells, unleashing endorphins so you feel alert, focused and satisfied. Couple that with the energized and satisfied feeling that follows and voila! You’ve got the happiest discovery in protein drinks.*

Can I lose weight with fizzique?
Weight loss is all about calories in and calories that you burn; if you take in more calories than you burn, you are going to gain weight. Whereas if you take in less calories than your body burns, you lose weight, assuming you’re healthy. So you have the power to make the choices you want.*

Low carb, low fat protein drinks are not meal replacements. They are food supplements for your daily diet and therefore, by law, are required to feature this notice.*
As you know, most meal replacement drinks are thick, milky, and high-calorie, containing protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Whereas, fizzique is a 90-calorie sparkling protein water with zero sugar, zero fat, and no added vitamins or minerals.
Why is fizzique so low in sodium?
fizzique’s formula is as pure as we can possibly make it with today’s technology – so no added salt.
Why does it say “express delivered” on the can?
Research has shown that whey, and hydrolyzed whey protein isolate in particular, is one of the fastest digested most easily absorbed proteins. Once digested, it is “express delivered” getting to your muscles, body, and brain more quickly than milk protein, caseins, caseinates, egg, soy and all other plant proteins.*
What’s the source of fizzique’s natural energy?
To help revive your body and brain, fizzique provides 4400mg of muscle-energizing BCAAs (the Branch Chain Amino Acids – Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine). These are a preferred muscle energy source and are natural amino acids found in whey protein. fizzique also delivers an extra twist of natural energy with 45mg of natural caffeine per can, like that found in a cup of green tea.*

What’s fizzique’s gluten score?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets the levels for gluten-free claims for nutritional products at <20ppm of gliadin, the primary gluten allergen metric.*

We selected research-proven, safe (GRAS) ingredients that work together in fizzique to create a light, delicious, bubbly, hydrating drink that packs a unique 20g protein punch with a twist of natural energy – from 45mg of natural caffeine, like that found in a cup of green tea - see CaffeineInformer.com*
How can fizzique fit into my daily schedule?
The beauty of fizzique is its fizzy uniqueness! (See what we did there?) Whether you use fizzique as your go-to post-workout drink or your mid-morning, mid-day, or mid-afternoon snack, or your anytime, anywhere pick-me-up, it’s up to you!
Why now 90 calories per can – not 80 calories?
To make sure fizzique contains it’s labeled 20g of protein in each can, we target a tad (2%) extra protein. This adds 1-2 extra calories per can. fizzique contains natural flavors. We use these flavors at very low levels (about 1%) for a light, refreshing taste. To help the flavors work best in beverages, the natural flavors include about 1g of carbs, so another 4 calories.
The FDA has calorie ‘rounding’ rules. Simply under these rules, once a product is over 50 calories, calories are then rounded to the nearest tenth. With fizzique having ~85 calories, it needs to be rounded to 90 calories to comply with FDA law.
For Best Results
Napping at work? Hitting the slump? Now beat the blahs before they beat you!
Nobody knows your body better than you do. To slay the slump, its best to avoid getting the “sleepys” in the first place.
So enjoy ½ to 2/3 can of fizzique – 45-60 min or so before you know you’ll be getting the blahs.
Or drink 2/3 can of fizzique the moment you feel the blahs coming on.
Better body and brain between meals? Here’s a little known body and brain hack!
To operate at the top of your game keep your body and brain energy topped up.
Sip fizzique every 15 to 20 minutes between meals.*
Research shows that sipping about 2g of whey protein (10% of a can of fizzique) every 15-20 minutes fuels your muscle and mind better than chugging a 30g drink of either whey protein or casein.
Of course, we are not sure who in their right mind would want to drink a lot of casein or caseinate given its lousy history and google cancer reviews.*
Exercising? Or in need of a pick-me-up?
Drink fizzique 30 minutes before or right after exercise or any time you need a high-protein pick-me-up.
What’s the big deal about drinking fizzique between meals?
A bit of metabolic magic, that’s what. Research shows that drinking a hydrolyzed whey protein (WPH) between meals reduces insulin levels – aka the “hunger hormone.” So this is another way that fizzique can help you not feel as hungry pre-meal. More of the power of protein from fizzique.*
