PepsiCo will release more information around Gatorade sports drinks in 2016

PepsiCo has refused to be drawn on reports that it will release an organic version of its Gatorade sports drink, adding that it is working on a number of sports products for the brand.

Reports earlier this week suggested the company would release the organic drink next year. According to Business Insider, PepsiCo's CEO of American Beverages Al Carey said it was a "consumer interest". 

He was speaking at Beverage Digest's Future Smarts conference.  

A spokesperson told just-drinks: "Gatorade continues to listen to athletes and develop products based on science and this feedback. 

"We are researching many types of athlete solutions, and we will share more in 2016 and beyond."

PepsiCo has made a number of moves towards healthier living. Earlier this week, the company announced the launch of a new vending machine that gives consumers detailed nutritional information on each product.
