Ion Supply Drink Pocari Sweat

This shade of blue looks very refreshing. The name is unique and interesting, Ion Supply Drink Pocari Sweat. Sweat is the fluid produce by the body sweat glands or simply perspiration. Pocari might be an Nihonggo term since the product was developed by Otsuka Pharmaceutical of Tokyo, Japan.

The product introduction: Pocari Sweat is a mild tasting , refreshing drink which helps replenish body fluids lost through perspiration. Pocari Sweat is quickly absorbed into the body tissue due to its fine osmotability. It is thus recommended as a beverage for sports, exercise or any physical activities.

Ingredient listing: Water, sugar, citric acid, sodium citrate, sodium chloride, Vitamin C, potassium chloride, calcium lactate, magnesium carbonate, natural and artificial flavors. The undeclared natural and artificial flavors. Shoot  a million arrows in the dark to hit the target.

The blue aluminum can contains a colorless liquid. The taste is sweet with a mild young coconut water taste – not sure cause it was not included in ingredient list.

It is not an energy drink. It intend to replace the loss ions due to perspiration. Just like what Gatorade does. Might suffice as thirst quencher cause it’s not too sweet though it  is sweeter than its mentioned rival.

Caution: Freezing may damage this container causing contents to leak.

This was the first time I encounter an aluminum can freeze warning. Yes, it may leak if subjected to slow freezing – the common setting of home freezers. During slow freezing, water molecules will expand and might break the package.

    IS IT STILL SAFE TO DRINK IT?

    • Yes it is still safe to drink.

      Freezing has no drastic effect on liquid contents. Freezing causes the liquid volume to expand and break the container open. It’s a rare case though.
