Lucozade is no longer as effective at treating hypoglycemia

Lucozade is no longer as effective at treating hypoglycemia

Due to changes in its recipe and a significant reduction in glucose, Lucozade will not be as effective as a treatment for hypoglycemic patients.

Recipe changes to Lucozade Original Energy product line mean it will no longer be as effective at treating hypoglycemic patients – this is due to a 50% reduction in glucose based carbohydrates. Healthcare Professionals should seek guidance from their local specialist team on alternative treatment protocols.

This change applies to all Lucozade Energy Flavours. New products started appearing on shelves in April 2017. However, for a short time, both the new and old recipe will be available.

Previously, 100ml of Lucozade Original contained 17g of carbohydrate; this was reduced to 8.9g in April 2017.

Lucozade is no longer as effective at treating hypoglycemia

According to Diabietes.co.uk, patients who experience a hypoglycemic episode are advised to consume 15-20g of sugar when treating low blood sugar, but this will no longer be equivalent to 100ml of Lucozade.

Lucozade Ribena Suntory, which also makes Ribena and Orangina, among other drinks, is lowering its sugar content by replacing these sugars with low-calorie sweeteners, such as aspartame.
