14 grams of sugar seems like a lot of sugar for me.
14 grams of sugar is significantly less than many other beverages. In order for hoist to be isotonic, it has to have a small amount of sugar. If we took out the sugar, hoist would be hypotonic, and have to be digested, slowing down the hydration process. AKA – it would be like all the other flavored waters and sports drinks.
Is there a powder version?
No, we do not have a powder version. Since the formula must be measured to very specific amounts in order to be perfectly isotonic, we cannot control how people would mix it and it may not have the same efficacy.
