Kool-Aid Jammers Tropical Punch is a sweetened beverage that both children and adults like. The recommended serving size is 6 ounces, or 1 container, and using portion control can be essential for your health. If you eat more than one serving, the calories and carbohydrates can add up quickly.

Nutrition Facts

One container contains 70 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of cholesterol, 15 milligrams of sodium, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, and 0 grams of protein. Additionally, the product is fortified with vitamin C and contains 100 percent of the recommended daily intake for adults based on a 2,000-calorie diet. Upon first glance, the beverage may seem healthy due to the vitamin C, but 19 grams of added sugar equals over 4 teaspoons. Instead, try eating 1 cup of strawberries or 1 medium orange to help achieve the recommended vitamin C intake.

Ingredients in Kool-Aid Jammers Tropical Punch

The ingredients are listed in order of greatest quantity: water, high fructose corn syrup, less than 2 percent of ascrobic acid (vitamin C), natural and artificial flavor, citric acid, calcium disodium EDTA and Blue 1. Ideally, a healthy beverage would not have high-fructose corn syrup as the second ingredient. In high amounts, high-fructose corn syrup may lead to weight gain and elevated triglycerides, which is a type of fat in the blood. Calcium disodium EDTA is an additive that improves the shelf-life of the product. In large quantities, it can be toxic.
