An isotonic drink contains a 6-8% carbohydrate solution, which is absorbed into the body more rapidly than water, as well as providing energy. An isotonic sports drink should also contain approximately 50mg of sodium per 100ml, along with smaller amounts of the other electrolytes, such as potassium and chloride, which are lost in sweat.
The other types of drink would be ’hypotonic’, meaning it contains a less concentrated carbohydrate solution (1-3%). This will promote water absorption, but provides less carbohydrate energy and fewer calories. At the other end of the scale are ’hypertonic’ drinks, with a carbohydrate concentration greater than 10%.These will have a slow gastric emptying rate, thus decreasing fluid absorption.
