(Seattle, WA) nuunâ€”creator of the sugar-free quick-dissolving electrolyte sports drink tabletâ€”has added a new flavour to its family in 2008â€”orange ginger. Orange ginger is nuun's fifth flavorâ€” it joins lemon+lime, tri-berry, citrus fruit and kona cola and gives athletes and active people a wide variety of choices in the replenishing electrolyte drink.
Orange-ginger is available in two sizes. Each tablet of nuun makes 16 ounces of drink, approximately the size of a bicycle bottle. bigger nuun (also new in 2008) has a larger tablet size specifically formatted for ease of use in larger 32-ounce or liter-sized bottles and hydration packs. nuun was the first electrolyte drink ideally suited for use in hydration systems, because its sugar-free formula rinses cleanly and will not fuel the growth of bacteria.
When nuun came to market in 2004, it offered active people a new way to hydrate. nuun's conceptâ€”to separate what you drink to stay hydrated from what you eat for energyâ€”defined a new way to replenish electrolytes in a convenient, easy-to-use form. Simply add a tablet to water, let it dissolve for two minutes, and you have a drink containing calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesiumâ€”the essential electrolytes that aid hydration.
