Gatorade Contains good levels of Glucose in it. Also energy drinks contain Glucose. A lot of juices do not contain glucose. They contain fructose which is different. Gatorade I found is one of the cheapest out there.

While running a marathon competitors drink glucose drinks to resupply their bodies with energy. They do this rather than eating a food containing carbohydrates because it is physically easier and quicker to drink a glucose drink than it is to try to bite and chew a food containing carbohydrates. Also, glucose in liquid form can enter the bloodstream much more quickly than glucose broken down from carbohydrate metabolism and requires much less energy to digest compared with a solid food. Finally, many people feel nauseated when performing strenuous exercise immediately after a meal of solid food.
