Gatorade Ingredient Being Removed
A popular sports drink loses one of its ingredients. And the ingredient being removed may raise an eyebrow or two.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Foster explains:
Gatorade has had brominated vegetable oil in it. That’s been patented as a flame retardant, and it’s banned in Europe and Japan. A spokeswoman for Pepsi Co. which owns Gatorade says they’re taking it out and had been planning to for the past year, since the company started hearing rumblings from consumers about it. She says it’s not a response to an online petition started by a Mississippi teenager which has more than 200,000 signatures. That ingredient is still around in other Pepsi products like Mountain Dew.
