Success Story: Krampade Sports Drink Leverages Revolving Loan Fund To Secure Public/Private Investment For Business Growth

From Economic Development Administration (EDA) August 2020 Newsletter: EDA makes Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) grant awards to establish Revolving Loan Funds (RLFs) that make loans to businesses that cannot otherwise obtain traditional bank financing. These loans provide access to capital as gap financing that enables small businesses to grow and lead to new employment opportunities with competitive wages and benefits. The economic development priorities of each RLF are defined in a specific RLF Plan that guides the lending strategy within its defined lending area.

Krampade LLC, a borrower of RLF recipient Grand Forks Growth Fund, is a North Dakota-based sports drink company that was founded in 2015. Krampade is a ...

Krampade Provides Critical Electrolyte Replacement to Enhance Mission Performance

 For over 50 years, the US military has recognized that potassium deficiency results in a soldier’s reduced performance and recovery.  From new recruits to highly trained Special Operations’ personnel, reduced body potassium is a key missing link to a decrease in performance during training and missions. Despite the recognized need by the US military, a dietary source to offset this deficiency has eluded the military for years, until now.  Krampade offers several families of products that provide rapid, dietary replacement of potassium to keep muscle performance and endurance high, while also enhancing muscle recovery. Why is potassium so critically important?  For muscles to function properly, potassium is used during exertion to increase blood flow to the muscle necessary for optimal performance.  This also increases muscle endurance. Potassium also liberates glucose from muscle and liver energy stores. It ...

Cramp During or After Sex, a Real Bummer…Krampade is Your Solution.

As a medical school professor, I get to lecture on a lot of interesting topics, so after all these years, I’ll breach one many of us don’t want to talk about.  That is cramps during sex.  Nothing really cramps your style like throwing a hamstring cramp right when either you or your partner is climaxing.  Yes, nothing ruins a great orgasm like a cramp.  Talk about awkward. Try to stay engaged while trying to straighten a leg or twisting in this or that direction desperately trying to get the cramp to go away.  Sort of cools off the activity, leaving either one or both of you yearning for a bit more. Ok, so what is the solution to this problem? Simple, your go-to performance drink in the bedroom is Krampade.  Or anywhere else you tend to partake ...

TINSTAFS or There Is No Such Thing As Free Shipping – The First Rule in E-commerce

We are often asked why we do not offer “free shipping” for the world’s most revolutionary performance drink.  This is all the rage at ecommerce sites around the world, so why not at Krampade? There are two simple points why we don’t routinely offer free shipping to customers. First, our average product weighs 1.5 pounds a pouch, which means there is a lot of weight in a low cost item.  Hence, it is prohibitively expensive to ship it without charging a lot more for your Krampade, so we have customers pay the shipping expense.  This keeps prices low.  The important point is you pay us for shipping what we pay the US Postal Service (USPS).  When   the USPS auto-packer calculates the incorrect shipping cost, we make it right.  If this mistake results in an overpayment on the ...

Reducing Calories: Why is Advantame® so Advantageous? A Formulators Perspective

When developing the reduced sugar varieties of Krampade® the use of artificial sweeteners was something that was necessary and, frankly, made me apprehensive as working with these compounds is tricky and often leaves me with a headache.  So where to start when developing our reduced sugar and future zero sugar (Kramplytes) varieties? Which artificial sweeteners are FDA approved? The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates what compounds can be used for making a powdered drink mix such as Krampade®.  The first step along the journey is to visit the FDA website and see what sweeteners have met their rigorous standards for approval and how much. There are six artificial sweeteners approved for use and two natural sweeteners have been given GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status.  For more information visit https://www.fda.gov/food/food-additives-petitions/additional-information-about-high-intensity-sweeteners-permitted-use-food-united-states#saccharin Sweetener Regulatory Status Example brand ...
