What are the ingredients in the kool-aid packet?

"Kool Aid" is a powdered drink mix, the brand name formerly owned by General Foods, and today by Kraft Foods. The powdered form was invented in 1927 by a young scientist named Edwin Perkins as a way to easily transport beverage mixes.

The "unsweetened" form of Kool Aid contains fruit flavoring, citric acid, calcium phosphate, salt and Vitamin C. Some flavors add maltodextrin if natural fruit solids are used.

The "sugar free" mixes add aspartame (Nutrasweet) and acesulfame potassium.

The "sugar sweetened" mix adds sugar, sodium citrate, and the preservative BHA.
