Market Dynamics:

One of the major drivers of the non-GMO verified sports drinks market is the rising awareness among people, about the harmful effects of GMO in food & beverages, such as food allergy, increasing toxicity, decreased nutritional value and antibiotic resistance. The derivatives of GMO products are found in almost all the processed foods, such corn and soy derivatives. Corn derived artificial sweeteners are used heavily in sports drinks, and therefore a demand for naturally sweetened sports drinks has been seen. Other high risk GMO crops are sugar beets, papaya and cotton. But, the side effects of consumption of sports drinks, restraint the growth of this industry. Sports drinks are added with citric acid, to counter the sweetness of the beverage. High consumption of citric acid results in dental erosion.
