Why does DripDrop ORS contain sugar?
Sugar is one of the critical components in the science behind the sodium-glucose cotransport system—the system that helps sodium and water get from your small intestine into your bloodstream. DripDrop ORS contains just enough sugar to make that happen.
DripDrop ORS contains sucrose, fructose, dextrose and sucralose:
- Sucrose and Fructose: both natural sugars with lower glycemic index than glucose.
- Dextrose: a corn based sweetener.
- Small amounts of Sucralose: a safe, non-caloric modified form of table sugar. Sucralose is considered to be safe by the FDA, the European Food Safety Authority, Health Canada and the World Health Organization.
