Gatorade supports AIS Sports Nutrition by funding the Gatorade Sports Nutrition Fellowship. The Gatorade Fellow is involved in cutting edge research in hydration. This complements the research already conducted at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, Gatorade's own centre for research. The Gatorade Fellow also provides nutrition services to AIS athletes, coordinates the provision of Gatorade product to athletes and develops nutrition resources.
The Complete Dairy
The Complete Dairy is the official milk partner of the AIS. A variety of milks are available in the AIS Dining Hall. The Complete Dairy is 70% higher in protein than regular full cream milk. Protein plays an essential role in a healthy diet and underpins an athlete's recovery and adaptation to their exercise load. New research shows that a regular spread of good quality protein over the day is the best way to achieve protein goals. The high level and quality of protein in The Complete Dairy makes it an effective and versatile food choice for optimising daily protein intake.
