Product Description

Flavor: Lemon Lime | Size: 16.1 Ounce Canister

GU Brew Electrolyte Plus Light Carb Sports Drink Mix has been reformulated to place a greater emphasis upon hydration while maintaining a modest amount of. The refined formulation offers athletes a superior hydration product with excellent fueling flexibility. GU Brew is naturally flavored with an ultralight taste profile for great drinkability prized by hard working athletes. GU Brew is about electrolytes first, but carbs are key to endurance nutrition so we take them seriously. GU Brew uses a 50:50 ratio of fructose (simple) and maltodextrin (complex) carbs because carbs in this combination increase the amount of energy available to muscles. Maltodextrin leaves the stomach more quickly than the dominant simple sugars typically found in sports drinks. The quicker carbs leave the stomach, the faster they are sent to working muscles for energy. Additionally, more energy is derived from maltodextrin than the glucose-dominated simple carbs in competitive products. For a rapidly-absorbed, light sports drink focused on hydration, mix GU Brew with 21 ounces of water. Mix it in higher concentration for increased energy density for longer workout days. Available in packs of 24 convenient single-serving sticks or bulk 24-serving travel-friendly canisters. Approximately 70 calories per serving.

Flavor Name: Blueberry PomegranateSize Name: 24 Count Verified Purchase
I really love these. They are very reasonable priced. I would recommend mixing this with 30 ounces not 21. I only take one in 30 ounces of water 2 hours before a half marathon. For the first 6 miles my sweat is so salty that it almost burns my eyes.
The first time I tried the product was in 8 ounces of water and it was a disaster in my stomach.
The flavor is very easy to tolerate, and if you add it to at least 20 ounces water it will not taste salty at all.
For the rest of my run I only do gels and water.

Flavor Name: Blueberry PomegranateSize Name: 16.1 Ounce Canister Verified Purchase
(This is a follow-on to my top-rated review of the original formulation called GU Brew Blueberry Pomegranate.) GU has recently reformulated it to have less carbs/calories, and the result is even more drinkable. This is a good thing, because, as I note below, you really need only two things from a hydration drink: 1. sodium, 2. a taste that makes you want to drink it in order to get the sodium. (Otherwise you could just drink pickle juice to get the sodium but you'd never enjoy it or drink enough of it!!)

I've only used the Blueberry Pomegranate flavor but I find it just right. Not too sweet like some sports drinks, but not too salty, especially given the 2x sodium. I'm been using this and the previous formulation for almost 6 years now. The main difference with this new formulation is that it has a lighter taste and you only need a single scoop where previously two scoops were needed.

If you especially prone to cramping during long training or competitive events, as I am, then you MUST choose the Blueberry Pomegranate. It provides TWICE the sodium of the other GU Hydration flavors (500 mg per serving). Sodium has been shown to be the key element to replenish to prevent the major type of heat-related, twitch muscle cramps, according to a number of sports science studies. In hot weather, it's usually good to drink an entire sport bottle of GU Brew at least an hour before the event, and then consume another 32-48 oz throughout.

As with any other large canister of powder, take extra care to keep water out, and you'll be fine.
