All Nuun branded products do not contain any nutrients that cannot be consumed by children, and the refreshing taste and sodium may encourage them to drink more water. However, daily requirements for children differ to what’s recommended for adults. Some of our Nuun electrolytes and Nuun vitamins contain small amounts of caffeine (40 mg per serving), and these products when consumed in greater quantities may not be suitable for children. We suggest consulting with your child’s physician prior to use.
Nuun electrolytes and Nuun vitamins contain very minimal amounts of both carbs and sugar. We use 1 gram of dextrose (d-glucose) to help increase the rate of fluid and nutrient delivery. Dextrose is high on the glycemic index (gi), but the minimal amount of dextrose in our electrolytes and vitamins products will have a little to no impact on blood sugar. We recommended consulting with your physician with any additional questions or concerns.
Many of our team-members have drank Nuun all through their pregnancy. However, we always recommended consulting with your physician prior to use.

Vitamin c, although very important for daily health, is commonly found in many foods and is the least "under-consumed" of the vitamins. Therefore, we prioritized more of the other vitamins that most people consume less of, since there is a limit to how much we can fit in each tablet.

Given the purity of the ingredients and powder form, clumping sometimes occurs when the bag is exposed to heat or humidity. This does not reduce the effectiveness or flavor of the product – it’s natural and harmless. Once mixed, it will taste and perform the same.

If the powder hardens, break it up before adding it to water. The powder will dissolve completely. We will continue to improve our packaging so that we can reduce clumping while keeping the same pure ingredients.

We recommend storing performance the same way as our tablets: at or below 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Be sure to re-seal the bulk bags properly after use.
When stored at or under 80 degrees Fahrenheit with the bag properly sealed, the dried powder will stay fresh for two years after manufactured date. When pre-mixed and refrigerated, performance will stay fresh for up to a week.
Our products have a 24-month expiration date from the time they were produced. The expiration date can be found stamped on the bottom of the tube. Once added to water we recommend storing pre-mixed Nuun in the fridge, and consuming within the week. The longer it sits, the more flavor and electrolyte profile can degrade.
You can certainly prepare your nuun in advance to make the morning of the race or a training session more convenient. We’ve noticed that refrigerating for several days only affects the flavoring, not the nutrient content or quality. 
The tiny beads are made up of silicon dioxide. They help retain any moisture present within the tube. Silicon dioxide is non-toxic.
