Below we have discussed the different review parameters for Dabur GlucoPlus C Orange in detail.
The list of ingredients is a crucial parameter we emphasize on. We check here for the sources of sugar used? Does it contain any preservatives? Unlike many other brands that fail to mention the percentage of vitamins, is the percentage of Vitamin C mentioned here? Any artificial food color or added flavors used?
We checked the nutritional label provided by the brand for the calories, sugar, calcium content, phosphorus content, Vitamin C content, and other aspects. Per 100 gm, Dabur GlucoPlus C Orange Instant Energy delivers 360 kcal of energy, 90 gm of carb, 44 gm of sugar, 348 mg of calcium, 185 mg of phosphorus, and 40 mg of Vitamin C.
How does this help regain energy? Drinks that are high in glucose results in sudden rise in sugar levels in the body. The quick increase in sugar provides instant energy to the body. It helps in lowering down the temperature of the body, prevents dehydration and provides instant coolness. Additionally, these drinks can help during low blood sugar level as it instantly spikes the blood glucose levels.

Here’s what we found during our review process of Dabur GlucoPlus C Orange Energy Boost :
Product Inspection: Dabur GlucoPlus C Orange Energy Boost comes in a vibrant orange color pack. The carton box is not resealable. After opening the pack, store the remaining contents in an air-tight container.
Below is a detailed breakdown of the ingredients used in this beverage mix :
- Dextrose Monohydrate (50.4%) – This ingredient constitutes about 50.4% of this energy drink. It helps replenish lost nutrients and electrolytes. It is almost identical to glucose and hence can be used as a source of energy by the body.
- Sucrose – It is a naturally occurring carbohydrate seen in many fruits, vegetables, and grains. Sucrose is commonly extracted from sugar cane or sugar beets.
- Acidity Regulator (INS 330) – Also known as citric acid it lends a sour taste to food and beverages. It helps stabilize sweets and confectioneries thereby preventing crystallization of sugar.
- Vitamin C (0.08%) – Unlike many other brands that do not mention the percentage of Vitamin C, this energy drink contains about 0.08% of Vitamin C.
Additionally, on scanning the list of ingredients, we found the presence of permitted synthetic food color which we did not appreciate.
