From professional athletes, to exercise enthusiasts and everyone in between, many active individuals use sports drinks as a source of carbohydrate fuel and as a way to replace fluids and electrolytes lost through sweat during sustained vigorous physical activity.
Most sports beverages are formulated to provide recommended amounts of carbohydrates to support optimal performance during prolonged physical activity and to help maintain fluid balance by replacing the fluids and electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, and chloride, lost through perspiration.
To learn more about the nutritional content of sports drinks, be sure to read product labels which will provide, in accordance with local or regional labeling guidelines, valuable nutrition information. Our policy is to provide nutrition labeling information for all of our products, with the exception of certain returnable bottles, fountain beverages and waters (unsweetened, unflavored), for which nutrition information is provided by alternate means, e.g., via corporate websites.
We believe in the importance and power of 'informed choice,' and continue to support fact based nutrition labeling and education and initiatives that encourage people to live active, healthy lifestyles.
