Born On the Playing Field
Gatorade was created in the 1960s by researchers at the University of Florida to help the Gators football team prevent dehydration when they played in the swamp-like heat. Since the Gators’ 1967 Orange Bowl victory, Gatorade has grown to become an essential piece of sports equipment, and can be found on the sidelines, in the locker rooms and on almost every field of play. Backed by more than 40 years of scientific research, Gatorade has proven rehydration and performance benefits over water. No other beverage or sports drink company has established such a strong expertise in rehydration and sports nutrition. In 2010, Gatorade unveiled the G Series and G Series Pro – two new lines of products grounded in the latest sports performance science and developed in collaboration with the world’s greatest athletes that go beyond hydration to provide the fuel, fluid and nutrients athletes need before, during and after activity. G Series Pro products were designed exclusively for collegiate and professional athletes, but for the first time are available to elite and endurance athletes at sports specialty retailers like GNC and Dick’s Sporting Goods. This is a major step in the iconic brand’s evolution from a sports drink company to a sports performance innovator.

Each product of the G Series is designed to meet the distinct nutrition and hydration needs of competitive athletes before, during and after a workout or game. It starts with Gatorade Prime 01, which is pre-workout or pre-game fuel. With 25 g of carbohydrates in a 4-oz. pouch, Gatorade Prime helps kick-start activity by making carbohydrate energy rapidly available to muscles. In the moment of activity, Gatorade Perform 02, which includes the trusted Gatorade Thirst Quencher and G2 beverages, is scientifically formulated and athletically proven to quench thirst, replace fluids, and provide carbohydrate energy to enhance athletic performance. Gatorade Recover 03 is the first protein beverage formulated with the consistency of a thirst quencher that provides hydration and muscle recovery benefits after exercise.

Gatorade is currently available in 80 countries, with more than 30 flavors available in the U.S. and more than 50 flavors available internationally. Gatorade expanded to Canada in 1984, Japan in 1982 and Europe and South America in 1988.

The Gatorade Company, a division of PepsiCo, is dedicated to the worldwide commitment to delivering “Performance with Purpose” to the communities it serves. All PepsiCo divisions are committed to our consumers and customers, suppliers and employees, our shareholders and the community and the environment that we all share.
