**The good:** Taste. One of the better attempts at reproducing "natural grape" flavor! The initial taste hit my tongue as chemical grape (which i actually like), yet this faded to an aftertaste with more natural grape undertones. Well done on the flavor. **The conditional:** The product label advertises "Zero Sugar". Okay, no sucrose. Instead of sugar, we have... maltodextrin. With a GI of 106+, maltodextrin is more insulinogenic than sugar. Amazing if you're purposefully spiking insulin for anabolism, or refueling glycogen during extended endurance exercise. Not-so-amazing for the keto/low-carb/fasted-cardio/yohimbine crowd. **The bad:** Every 4.3g serving contains 3.0g of maltodextrin, roughly 70% by weight. Malto by itself doesn't taste particularly amazing (the taste of this product is primarily flavor extract+citric acid+stevia), and malto definitely impedes the solubility of this product in water. It will dissolve, but it takes time. I feel the maltodextrin is *primarily* included as a filler to artificially increase the number of servings per container. While the list of electrolytes in this product is quite comprehensive, the concentration per-serving is quite low. As a result, you'll need to consume multiple servings of this product to ingest the same amount of electrolyte as contained in a single serving of competing (non-filler) product. Hope this helps!

Great flavor, add glutamine powder to it and drink after my morning exercise before breakfast. Take again around 3 to 4 pm if i experience the mid afternoon slump. Definitely helps with energy, mental & physical. Will keep buying.

So far I like all the Ultima products. They use stevia instead of sugar. One thing to notice, different flavors have different formulas of vitamins and electrolytes.

I'm a competitive athlete & began using Ultima several years ago. I switched to it from another electrolyte mix as it provides a comprehensive electrolyte profile without additional simple sugars so it doesn't spike my blood glucose levels. It's also a pretty cost-effective and tasty drink for when I'm not on the bike but just wanting additional hydration.
Another great flavor from Ultima!

Grape ranks right up there with Lemonade as the one of the best flavors of Ultima Replenisher! Tastes like of grape-ade! Love that it has no sugar and a good balance of electrolytes and minerals! Been using Ultima for years for all my work outs - so much better than the full of sugar alternatives! Kids love it, too!

Nice grape flavor, gives a good boost and makes it easy to drink enough water. Best sports drink I have tried.
