    accelerade taste gas etc bloating etc etc

    i thought i would try accelerade,,,,,, my opinio today is it seems frothy and has a bad aftertaste. i used it on a 28 mile ride and it seemed ok. so today on a 91 miler i used it. am i the only one that has ha dthis expierence. it made me bloaty i had to lay in the floor when i got home. kept having gas on the ride and the aftertaste was gassy. i also thought that while cleaning my bottles it smelled err may i say bad belch gassy smell. i was using a drink that was greta i just wanted to get away from the koolaid taste. anyone had this same exp?

    No, but i have found that if it gets hot, then the enjoyment of the drink decreases dramatically. It does get a bit frothy if shaken alot too.

    I tried it with similar results. I tried to acclimate to the taste, and hoped that my body would tolerate this drink better, but it never happened. It may work for some, but it didn't for me.

    accelerade is better if mixed the night before and left in the frig overnight. experiment with the dissolution ratio. full dose + warm weather = vomit taste and bloating, you are right on. but it works for me when i use it.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.
