Clif Shot Electrolyte Hydration Drink

Clif reformulated its electrolyte hydration mix to a reduced concentration of 4 percent carbohydrates—compared to the former version with 8 percent—taking on the mindset of “fluid in the bottle, fuel in your pocket” that has recently become a hot nutrition topic. The two flavors, Cranberry Razz and Lemon Lime-Ade, contain less sugar and fewer carbs than previous editions, with the intention of decreasing GI distress and increasing rehydration. Both are clean, crisp and refreshing (as pictured, the Cranberry Razz is naturally colored with beet juice but translucent). The mix comes in one big package or single-serving packets (made for 16-oz bottles) with 80 calories, 250mg sodium, 50mg potassium and 20g of carbs. The drink is made with 90 percent organic ingredients.
