Gatorade as a Vegetable Fertilizer

Someone suggested I use dlluted gatorade to fertilize my vegetable garden. I have a good source of the powdered kind that I can get when it expires so it can no longer be sold. If so, what is the ratio to water? and how often to apply? Sterling Heights, MI

I know of no research that would indicate that Gatorade is safe to use as a fertilizer on vegetable gardens, so I wouldn't want to venture a guess about the rate to use.
