Sugar in US MRE Drinks

Post by NateP » Tue Jan 02, 2018 8:15 pm

This might be a stupid question -- I'm new to the MRE community -- but I had Menu 21 - Tuna Lemon Pepper, Water Packed, which came with raspberry drink mix.

The mix didn't taste sweet, but are there any sugar sweeted drink mixes?

Also, I was blown away at how lemony the tuna was (in a good way).

The small packets of drink mix (ones made for 20oz water bottles) do not contain sugar. That's why they taste that way. They contain artificial sweeteners.

The larger bags of drink mixes (made for 8 or 20oz of water)and carbohydrate electrolyte beverage powders contain real sugar.
