Professional Grade Hydration with Less Sodium and More Potassium
Sqwincher was developed in 1975 to compete against Gatorade as an alternative electrolyte sports drink. With a formula that features less sodium and more potassium, Sqwincher markets itself as Professional Grade Hydration for both athletes and workers.
As with Gatorade, Sqwincher is available in a regular sugar version, a reduced sugar version and a sugar-free version. For many, sugar level is an important consideration when choosing an electrolyte beverage. Although simple carbohydrates often get a bad rap, they are beneficial during times of peak physical exertion in order to maintain proper glycogen levels.
Sqwincher’s reduced sugar line was originally marketed as Sqwincher LITE. However, it was rebranded as EverLyte in 2019. Its popular sugar-free version is known as Sqwincher ZERO and features 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C.
The brand also offers several unique packaging formats. Their Sqwincher Sqweeze product is an electrolyte freezer pop that’s available in both a regular and sugar-free version. Their Fast Pack product consists of a liquid concentrate contained in a pouch that doubles as a cup once water’s added.
Powder Mix Direct stocks a complete line of Sqwincher products including 1-gallon pouches, 2.5-gallon pouches and single-serve packs. We also offer variety packs that you won’t find anywhere else. We make it easy to sample all of the flavors that Sqwincher offers, whether you’re buying by the case or single pouch.
