    Nope, not really.

    It has nutrition in terms of a small amount of sodium and some carbohydrates. But seems it's some kind of junk food/candy so obviously it's not going to be rich in vitamins/minerals and the carbs are going to be highly refined and spike your blood sugar.

    You can't say that has "no nutrition value." It poor, but it does have sodium and carbs. Although, for Sour Patch Kids, it says it has 0g of sugar; most of the 36g of carbs should be sugar.

    Anyway, sodium is an electrolyte which helps with the retention and absorption of water, especially if you are dehydrated. Carbs are used for a quick energy source or restoring depleted glycogen stores, such as after a workout.

    If you're starving and have no food, then you can eat it and you will get nutrients and energy from it. Again, it's nutritionally poor in many cases, but you can't say there is no nutrition in it.

    It's all chemicals, why would it have any nutritional value? Plus, who eats SPK expecting to see vitamin c?

    Don't go 100% by this, the information is user submitted, it hasn't been vetted by anyone. I tried to enter something that has traditionally been used as a protein source, and they only gave me the carbs, saying it had no protein. And people rarely enter the vitamin stuff in.

    Well, lets see...

    140 calories

    25mg sodium

    36g carbohydrates (from sugar)

    Essential vitamins and minerals: zero

    Yeah, there's no nutritional value whatsover. But it's candy, and it's not supposed to. Eat what you like, just do it in moderation and you'll be fine.

    Yes indeed; the web link you have posted in your question does, in fact, have no nutritional value.
