So I was walking through Costco today and I ran into one of those people giving samples. In this case it was for a powdered base for a vitamin drink called “EcoDrink”. Since the GNC Mega Man has way too much of quite a few B vitamins and is fairly expensive, I thought I’d try to plug in the information I could get on this and see how it did. The flavors are fruity and I don’t know how pervasive they will be when mixed in. I had some weird results when I looked at the numbers though. They would claim 100% RDA but when I used the 2000 calorie RDA for a man, for a few fields like Vitamin C, I wouldn’t see 100% with just the Vitamin if I used the quantities on the Amazon page. (Costco currently has the powder for $19.99 for 30 so it’s only $0.66/day instead of >$1/day with the Mega Men sport too.
So I tried to build a recipe with the Eco Drink Powder that is close to my current recipe. I had to add Chia Seeds (which BTW don’t seem to have iron in the database…I updated that for mine). My Raw Milk drives the price up, but $5/day is around my goal anyway. It it work spending the $20 to find out how it tastes when mixed up?
