Great flavor, easily mixed with water, needed the sodium content. I have used this on various long distance bike rides and it complemented the other products used for nutrition and hydration. My choice had caffeine and that helped also. - Carol H.

What're my options?
This is where it gets nifty: they offer bags where you can scoop your own in 30 or 50 servings. Also, the single packets provide 2 x servings, so you're looking at 50g of carbs and 606mg of sodium.
They have four caffeinated options.

How to use it:
Similar to regular Tailwind, except we recommend limiting continuous use to 6 hours or less to avoid building up a high concentration. Each scoop contains 100 calories and 35mg of caffeine.
For endurance workouts, mix 2-3 scoops per 24 oz of water per hour. Adjust to your personal calorie needs during training, using hunger as a guide. On hot days, keep the same calories per hour, but increase water.
