Gatorade is an American beverage and food company best known for its distinctive range of sports beverages.

PepsiCo now manufactures Gatorade, which is distributed in over 80 countries.

A team of researchers lead by Dr. Robert Cade invented the beverage in 1965.

It was created for the University of Florida’s Gators to restore the carbohydrates that the school’s student-athletes burnt as well as the mix of water and electrolytes that they lost in perspiration during strenuous sports activities.
