Lucozade Sport is designed for adults who take part in exercise or sport. It contains carbohydrate (i.e. sugars) and electrolytes (i.e. sodium) at levels appropriate for an exercising adult.

Lucozade Sport Zero Sugar is a great tasting, low calorie, zero sugar fitness drink with added Vitamin B3 and electrolyte, designed for low intensity exercise and to be consumed as part of a varied and balanced diet and an active lifestyle.

Lucozade Fit Water contains electrolytes - Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Chloride to help you replenish what you lose in sweat during exercise.

Children's requirements of energy and nutrients are different from those of an adult and so Lucozade Sport, Lucozade Sport Zero Sugar and Lucozade Sport Fit Water are not really suitable for children under 16 years. This is not to say that Lucozade Sport would be harmful in any way, it is just not designed for use by children. Water is adequate for children during exercise or otherwise.

Are your bottles recyclable?

Yes, our bottles are easily recycled. We would recommend leaving the cap on when recycling your bottles, however it’s always best to check your local council guidelines as some may ask for the cap to be removed.

+

My bottle looks like a dark grey colour, why is this?

You can expect to see a grey tint to the plastic bottles which use recycled material as we are re-using plastic bottles. ‘Grey is the new green’ and this tint is something to be proud of as it shows that your favourite brand is being more sustainable and committed to using recycled plastic.

+

Do I need to remove the sleeve before I put it in the recycling bin?

Recycling the cap and label with the bottle gives all materials the best chance of being recycled. Most of the time you can leave the label on as the recycling process separates and collects them for downcycling. However not all local authority recycling centres are set up to recycle label material yet, so always best to check local guidelines about whether it needs to be removed.

You also might like to know that we have reduced the sleeve on our Lucozade Sport bottle so that the bottle is easily identified and sorted into the correct waste stream, helping to turn bottles back into bottles.

+

Why use plastic at all? Why not switch to glass or cans?

Plastic can be recycled time and time again and has a lower carbon footprint than both glass and aluminium.

+

What Lucozade Zero's stance on artificial sweeteners?

To achieve a great-tasting Lucozade Zero drink with fewer calories, we use a range of low-calorie sweeteners. All the sweeteners used in Lucozade Zero have been approved as safe to consume by the relevant authorities.

+

Where do I get my energy from if Lucozade Zero doesn't have Sugar?

Lucozade Zero is a sparkling low-calorie drink, not an energy drink. It's a new addition to our range because we are committed to offering more choice to our consumers. Now in the range there is a choice of a low-calorie drink without sugar, or a drink containing sugar and sweeteners.

+

Why is Lucozade Zero called Zero when it has 4 calories?

Like other food and drink manufacturers, we are governed by the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation regarding what we can say about our drinks. Drinks classed as zero-calories can contain 4 calories or less per 100ml. Having a few calories is something that Zero drinks tend to have in common.

Lucozade Zero Original contains 1.7 calories per 100ml, Lucozade Zero Orange contains 3.8 calories per 100ml, and Lucozade Zero Pink Lemonade contains 2 calories per 100ml.

These calories are regarded as being so low that they are considered negligible in terms of the contribution they make to a person's daily energy intake.

+

We are also taking steps to minimise the risk of under 16s purchasing Alert via the vending machines we manage. We are in the process of communicating these principles to other vending operators.
