Nutrition labels

This isn't gaming related at all, but gamers especially RPG gamers tend to be good with numbers.

I really have a problem with nutrition labels lately. They tell me some useful stuff like calories, but after that they are pretty useless (this is probably US specific). In this case I have 2 liquids to choose from, liquid 1 and liquid 2. If you just go by the nutrition information on the label it's difficult to tell which one is better than the other. Can you tell? In this case I very well know which one is better for me.

Liquid 1
8 fl oz
Calories: 100
Fat: 0g (0%)
Sodium: 45mg (2%)
Carbohydrates: 27g (9%)
Sugars: 27g
Protein: 0g

Liquid 2
8 fl oz
Calories: 120
Fat: 0g (0%)
Sodium: 5mg (0%)
Potassium: 250mg (7%)
Carbohydrates: 30g (10%)
Sugars: 28g
Protein: 0g
Magnesium: 2%

I'll post what the 2 liquids are in the forum thread some time in the next couple days.
