PURCHASE, NY. — Less sugar and more electrolytes are the defining attributes of Gatorlyte, the newest sports drink from PepsiCo, Inc.’s Gatorade brand. Gatorlyte was designed for athletes seeking “rapid rehydration,” the company said.
Available in cherry lime, orange and strawberry kiwi flavors, Gatorlyte contains less sugar than regular Gatorade and features a five-electrolyte blend, including sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride and magnesium. Each 20-oz bottle contains 50 calories and 12 grams of added sugars, as opposed to 48 grams of added sugars in original Gatorade.
Gatorlyte is available at convenience stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $2.99 per 20-oz bottle.
