And as for non-fructose sweets, Gatorade powder isn't made with the high fructose corn syrup like the bottles are (dextrose maybe?) so you can mix that in your BCAA or whey shake or egg protein shake or whatever for your carbo fix.
Powdered Gatorade is Sucrose and dextrose as opposed to the in the bottle stuff which is HFCS. I started using the powdered stuff a 2+ years ago as opposed to using juices and the already made stuff.
