Gatorade apparently kosher in Canada without hechsher – most FlavOUrs

***UPDATE – May 5, 2012, Gatorade is NOT Kosher without a Hechsher. Here’s why (click link). ***

An anonymous Bachur had asked the OU (Orthodox Union) if the Gatorade in Canada is Kosher (as the OU places a Hechsher on most US-based Gatorade products), and where to find them. This was their answer:

“Dear (Ploni Almoni),

Thank you for checking with the OU regarding your Kashruth question.
