LSU research helps Covington dad create sports drink
Using a flavor-enhancing compound developed by LSU, a Covington single father has developed a new sports drink that uses less sugar than other sports drinks, reports The Times-Picayune. Brian Brothers says Gatorade and Powerade are missing magnesium and calcium, both key components needed to restore the chemicals the body loses in sweat. While those minerals taste bad, LSU's bitter-blocking compound has allowed Brothers to develop EX5. Brothers began working on the drink with the university in 2010; LSU is poised to receive royalties from drink sales. Currently, two flavors—lemon lime and strawberry lemonade—are selling in stores across the state, with a blue raspberry variety to be released in July and a grape variety in September.
