When developing a functional drink, beverage-makers have to choose ingredients that will offer desired benefits to the consumer. For Washington, D.C.-based Advanced Nutrient Science International’s Xtreme Shock ready-to-drink (RTD) performance beverages, the brand used the carbohydrate glycerol as a “hyper-hydration” ingredient to replenish lost fluids and hydrate muscle tissues in order to reduce fatigue and boost performance, says Joe Sammarco, vice president of sales. It also used Octopalean, a natural thermogenic ingredient that increases metabolism, stimulate lipolysis and promote insulin sensitivity, he adds.
