When should someone use Gatorade Thirst Quencher vs. G2 or Gatorade Zero?

Athletes have different hydration and fueling needs. Gatorade Thirst Quencher (GTQ), low-calorie Gatorade G2 and Gatorade Zero provide options to meet the needs of more athletes during more occasions.

GTQ and G2 both provide hydration as well as carbohydrate fuel; however, G2 offers less carbohydrate thereby making it “low calorie.” While GTQ helps effectively meet hydration and energy needs for most athletes, G2 helps meet those same needs when less carbohydrate is required (e.g., lower intensities and durations, or when goals are other than performance) or when an athlete has a high sweat rate (sweating out more fluid than the norm, therefore needing to replace higher fluid losses while still staying within the recommended carbohydrate intake range for athletes).

Gatorade Zero is meant for an athlete looking for a zero-sugar thirst quencher with the same electrolytes as a Gatorade Thirst Quencher. Gatorade Zero is also a great option for athletes who prefer to get the carbohydrate energy they need to fuel working muscles from products such as gels or chews, as a supplement to their hydration choice.
