While no one seems to care about normal drinks such as Powerbar Endurance, I get a barrage of questions about every drink from FRS. This is just one email…

I would like to know the ingredients in the FRS products for my Doctor. I went off it, not realizing how much energy I was getting, & I threw away the box with the ingredients on it. Thanks. AJ

So, to make things easier on me, I’m going to list out all the FRS ingredients for all the different formulas right here:

There you go – a list of ingredients for each FRS product. (Just remember, sometimes ingredients change slightly, so always see a current box or can for the latest updates.)

And one last time, let me point out that I recommend the all natural liquid concentrate first and the all natural cans second. The others may taste pretty good but they contain corn syrup and/or sucralose, two ingredients which I don’t recommend.

  1. Yet another sport drink that uses “sucralose” for the low-cal, nothing like adding a dangerous component. AND you have Blue #2, Red #40. When will the consumer realize this “isn’t” healthy. AND Lance, you let me down, don’t you know what your putting your name on? Shame….How about GoChi or Goji juice instead. Wake up man!

    I hear ya.

    And whenever they launch a new flavor, it’s always a “low cal” version. My only real option with FRS is the all natural Orange concentrate. It’s good, but what is up with everyone wanting the low cal stuff?!

  3. Which FRS formulas, if any, are gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy free? I’ve heard it’s good stuff but I have celiac and I have to adhere to my own dietary requirements….please get back to me and if you have anything I can use I will be happy to buy. Thank you. – Lorianne

    You would want to contact FRS about your needs and/or take the ingredients list to your doctor and check on it.

  5. All the items listed have caffeine, along with the gluten and dairy… none of which I can have!!!! Add me to the list along with Lorianne!

  6. I have a friend who is an Iron Man world champion and she owns a chain of health food stores. She will not carry FRS. She calls it “junk”.

  7. @Sandi

    I wouldn’t carry FRS (or any other energy drink or sports drink) in a health food store either.

  8. Concerning gluten and dairy in the all natural products do not contain glutens or dairy. I find this product to be very smooth and energizing for me. Each individual requires something different does not mean FRS is junk. Choose wisely for your needs. For my needs this is an excellent product for endurance and strengthening.

    “Each individual requires something different does not mean FRS is junk.” Excellent point!
