History[edit]

Propel Fitness Water was introduced in 2002 by the Company Pepsico.[2] In January 2006, Gatorade introduced Propel Calcium to market. In summer of 2006, Gatorade introduced Propel powder packets, a dry powder mix of Propel, where the contents of a powder packet are added to a 500 mL (16.9 oz) bottle of water. Propel powder with Calcium launched in January 2010. In early 2009, Gatorade changed the bottle design.[citation needed] The packaging claims that the bottles contain 20% less plastic than their predecessors. Propel's logo remains the same, but the words "Fitness Water" have been removed from the packaging,[citation needed] leaving the only description as "Vitamin Enhanced Water Beverage".

In early 2011, Gatorade announced it was discontinuing production of regular Propel (Sucrose & artificial sweeteners base) in favor of an artificially sweetened variety: "Propel Zero".[citation needed]

Propel is available in 8 ready-to-drink, 8 powdered, and 3 calcium branded flavors.
