Lucozade Energy drinks have been reformulated and now contain approximately 50% less glucose from this month. This applies to all energy flavours and the carbohydrate content of each flavour varies. This has been done in response to the introduction of a soft drinks industry levy (sugar tax) being introduced in April 2018. Both versions may be available for a short period of time, so remember to check the label.
Lucozade Energy Original used to contain 17g carbohydrate per 100ml. It now contains 8.9g carbohydrate per 100ml.
Previously, 10g carbohydrate = 60mls Lucozade Energy original Now, 10g Carbohydrate= 110mls
