We play. We smile. We kick. We frown.
We write. We sing. We dance. We jump.
We hug. We laugh. We kiss. We love.

Everything we do may come from the heart, but it’s our muscles that pumps the blood back into it. Powering us up and pushing us on. It takes 657 muscles to power your body and at least 10 to raise a single smile. Our muscles give us energy and life; they keep us breathing and keep us going; treated well they keep us lean and life ready.

Our body's hardest, unsung workers. Our amazing, uncomplaining, industrious muscles. So let’s start giving them a second thought, show them the love and respect they deserve.

Nutritional information and dietary questions:

How much sugar, and what type of sugar is in Upbeat?

Upbeat has up to 12.8g of sugar per bottle (depending on the flavour). All the sugar in Upbeat is naturally occurring, the majority comes from the milk and the rest from the fruit - we don't add sugar. Upbeat has a low glycaemic index which means the sugars are slowly released into the blood.

Why does Upbeat contain sweeteners?

The sugars in Upbeat come naturally from the whey (milk sugars), and some from the fruit. However, we needed to increase the sweetness a fraction so we added sucralose rather than more sugar in order to avoid increasing the calories further.

Can Upbeat help as a source of protein for pregnant or breastfeeding women

Yes, actually, its recommended that you get more protein in your diet when pregnant and breastfeeding - Upbeat can be a convenient way of helping you reach your needs.

Great for Kids

Upbeat is a great source of protein for anyone over 3yrs old (children under 3yr’s have more specific dietary needs). Protein should be part of a balanced diet and is essential for children’s growth development. Calcium is also another essential nutrient in children, and Upbeat is a source of calcium.

Is Upbeat vegetarian?

Yes, whey protein is found naturally in milk and all processes are considered suitable for vegetarians

Is Upbeat vegan?

No, Upbeat is made from whey which is found naturally in milk.

Does Upbeat contain gluten and/or wheat ?

No wheat, but Upbeat is not gluten-free

How many can I drink a day?

From a nutritional point of view it’s important to eat a range of different foods that contain protein to benefit from the other nutrients they provide, for example eggs also contain important fats and vitamin D.

So keep your intake to 1-2 Upbeats a day as part of a healthy balanced diet.

As it is a bigger portion size, does that mean more sugar / calories?

We tried our best to minimise the effect on the kcal and sugar – as such we only have 9kcal more and 1.2g of sugar (but it’s all naturally occurring of course!)

Why is it called Upbeat Active now?

Here at Upbeat we believe everybody should be active – and we want to give those with an active lifestyle a delicious drink to help keep their muscles healthy and their minds Upbeat!

Why have you increased the bottle size?

A number of our Upbeat fans weren’t satisfied with only 250ml and wanted more of the deliciously tasting Upbeat, who wouldn’t ;-) they spoke, we listened!

Why should I keep it chilled?

Because it’s a fresh dairy drink, milk at room temperature isn’t at its best.

I've opened it, how long will it last?

You should keep it in the fridge and it will last for 24 hours.

Can I recycle my Upbeat bottle?

Yes, the Upbeat bottle and lid are recyclable but not the sleeve.
