The Airborne and the equate version had nearly identical active ingredient panels with Vitamins A, C, E and several minerals. The difference here were the inactive ingredients. The equate version has a few more ingredients for flavoring. This results in the equate version being 5 calories more than Airborne. This seems negligible to us, but may be important to other consumers.We used the same amount of water for each tablet, and they both dissolved quickly. The color and flavor were similar, but the equate version had a slightly stronger flavor. We found the Airborne was a little more like a soda because it had less orange flavor, so the bubbles came through more. The equate had about the same amount of bubbles, just a little more orange-y.
Pro tip: mix your airborne/generic airborne with orange juice. It improves the flavor and you get extra vitamin c. That should make up for any flavor differences
I prefer airborne. Lighter flavor. As mentioned put a little orange juice too.
