AGREED!!! It contains Propylene glycol which is antifreeze!

It's also one of the main ingredients in aircraft deicing fluid. :D

PROPYLENE GLYCOL IS NOT ANTIFREEZE. It's one component used in some antifreezes. Know what else is used in those antifreezes? WATER. So if you want to continue to spread misinformation that propylene glycol is bad because it's in antifreeze, then you have to also tell everyone how bad water is, as it's also in the same antifreeze.

Actually my dear, propylene glycol is an antifreeze. I have worked for a major airline for the past 15 years and have been heavily involved in our Winterization program for 10 of those years. Propylene glycol is the main ingredient in one of our deicing fluids.

There's a reason PG is the main ingredient used to de/anti-ice our aircraft, and it's not the water %. Cheers!

look at the ingredients has ANTIFREEZE in it!

enough said

The acute oral toxicity of propylene glycol is very low, and large quantities are required to cause perceptible health damage in humans; propylene glycol is metabolized in the human body into pyruvic acid (a normal part of the glucose-metabolism process, readily converted to energy), acetic acid (handled by ethanol-metabolism), lactic acid (a normal acid generally abundant during digestion),[11] and propionaldehyde (a highly toxic substance)

Just because something is safe for consumption doesn't mean you should consume it.

I guess all the RV owners out there are going to die because of this. Oh it is used in a whole bunch of food processing equipment that needs to be winterized. It is a food grade antifreeze.

just use fresh lemon and stevia . Huge difference.

Also, if you're afraid of dangerous chemicals in the things you consume, avoid water. Water contains hydrogen, which is very explosive and flammable, and pure oxygen, which can also be extremely flammable.

I think I'm in love with you.

By the way, any of you OMG PROPYLENE GLYCOL IS SO EVIL AND TERRIBLE type of people have contact lenses? You might wanna check what's in your contact lens solution, most of them contain propylene glycol. Same with most deodorants, hope you guys aren't using those... I could probably go on, but I think that's plenty for now.

Propylene Glycol is not toxic and you probably have a mix up between propylene glycol and ethylene glycol, yes propylene glycol is in antifreeze along with several other products such as NONTOXIC antifreeze and deoderants to things such as massage oils it is a very simple chemical compound and people are just uneducated on the topic and always need to find a reason to scare others.

by the way I have been using the new mio energy instead of monster energy drinks for about a month now and I cannot believe the difference in how I feel after this versus my jolts and crashes from monster energy

I really like Mio, it's helped me up my water intake significantly. The orange tangerine flavor tastes almost exactly like Tang.

I'm pretty sure I can find someone for every single item I've ever put in my mouth that can say how it is bad for me.... Whether it be a carrot or actual antifreeze - someone always has an opinion.

I like the Cherry Mio.

The only thing I don't like about it is that horrible dye they use. It gets everywhere and stains. I wish they made a dye free version.

Hey alcohol is pretty bad for us, and we still drink it....... I have heard mixed reviews about MIO. I guess as with any nutritional info that everyone is going to have a different view on everything, and if you took all the advice you would be back at square one..... most important is we do what works for us only! If you love MIO, drink MIO!

I use mio every day. I don't think there is anything like this out there that doesn't have a downside. I use it because I live in a college dorm and can't do the naturally flavored thing. Find something I can use to flavor my water on the go that doesn't have some sort of downside and then I'll be impressed...

I've never used Mio but I've used similar things to help me drink more water. It has helped a lot.
