So nice of Gatorade to make the point of saying that this wasn't in response to the Change.org petition. They wouldn't want anyone - let alone a teenage girl - thinking she actually made a difference. They just squandered a nice opportunity to acknowledge that they care what their customers think, and that they listen to them.

Because sucrose acetate isobutyrate sounds like it is so much better for you than brominated vegetable oil.

"Powerade, made by rival Coca-Cola Co. The Atlanta-based company did not say whether it would remove the ingredient from Powerade as well" How could PepsiCo remove the BVO from Powerade when Powerade is made by Coke?

soofedup- Coca-cola is the Atlanta-based company that did not say whether they (Coca-cola) would remove it from their product (Powerade) as well (following what Pepsi-co is doing with Gatorade).

Just what's supposed to be the problem with the stuff? My preferences tend toward avoiding mystery ingredients, but I'd like some facts first.

Why do people drink that crap? Unless you are running a marathon or you can't keep down food, there is no need to drink it.
