Helps ensure the active ingredients are intact in hot conditions/climate where many people will be using O.R.S, for example when on holiday or working in warm conditions. To help ensure O.R.S can be stored with a 3-year shelf life and sold internationally, we have used a stronger binding agent to keep all the ingredients intact for longer and importantly in variable humidity conditions.
