Do they exist in the UK?
I'm sorry if this has been asked in the forum but I couldn't easily see that it had.
I am looking for something like a High5 zero electrolyte tab that is free from artificial sweeteners. I've come across 'Zym's' from an internet surf, but these appear to only be available in the US. Am I missing an obvious brand in the UK?
Thanks so much for any pointers!
according to their website, nuun uses stevia as it's sweetener like zym does... should be broadly available

Many thanks Ris - I guess the question I should have asked is do you know of a brand that doesn't use artificial sweeteners (at all). I didn't pick up in the use of stevia in the Zym's. Doh!
i'm not sure - i've not found any (admittedly a cursory look). quite a few (nuun, gu) use stevia - it is apparently a naturally occuring plant sweetener. still an added sweetener, though.
Hi Ris - thanks so much for taking the time to reply.
re: high5 - are you sure? High5's website states it has sucralose and sorbitol...
high 5 neutral
edit - looks like the h20go does too. interesting to see another hydration tab company in the mix, though - thanks beth.
johnman - you are right about the ingredients list. i think they have confused the list of additives and allergens given with the neutral with the others - it acknowledges natural flavours and identifies sweeteners which would seem odd that they aren't in the ingredients.
touch confusing, though!
posting from mobile devices seems to work for me if i am already logged in - if i write a post as logged out then the process of logging in to validate the post makes it blank. bit weird...
We're working to fix the problem with posting from mobile devices – deeply annoying I know, so bear with us, we're on it!
Thanks Johnman - will pass this on to the web team as well.
to be honest I haven't been able to find any in the uk which are free from sorbitol or other sweeteners. I suffer from IBS and have resorted to purchasing SKRATCH hydration powder from the USA via ebay (extremely good by the way but very expensive). If anyone else can unravel this I would also be grateful. Wholeheartedly agree with the WHY add these pointless chemicals which cause so many people GI distress, not to mention carcinogenic properties as well.
My company will be launching some soon. www.pushnutrition.eu to complement our additive free gels.
You need to use some sort of sweetener, we will use stevia.
