For those of you who use sports drinks for energy (as opposed to pure hydration) or are worried about sugar crashes, I recently came across a sports drink with no disaccharides (fructose/sucrose). The name of it is: gleukos. They have a web site with more data etc. In my research about it I am attracted to it for a number of reasons, although they aren't necessarily the reasons that their literature touts. 1- It is colorless. My main gripe about Gatorade is the terrible colors that stain your lips and tongue. 2- It is not strong tasting. Gatorade needs to be diluted to keep the taste down. 3- It is high in potassium, which would be good in the summer especially if it wasn't the first match of the day (I rarely would play twice in a day) 4- It is priced OK, not cheap but not crazy. 5- It is available in powder form. It is a bit low in sodium (not that any of us need any more sodium) but that Na is needed for more rapid hydration, again my main reason for using Sports drinks. But table salt can easily be added. To my view it can be made easily as good as a hydrator as Gatorade, it is much more user friendly and would be superior as a intramatch drink.
