Flavored with What?
The popularity of bottled water has soared in recent years. After soft drinks, people in the United States drink more bottled water than any other beverage. Bottled water is available in flavors from blackberry to raspberry and the taste of these flavored waters may encourage people to drink more water which is great, but what really are flavored waters?
Flavored waters may have just a hint of flavor, derived from a natural fruit essence. Some may also contain sugar or low-calorie sweeteners and artificial flavors. Remember that being clear like water doesn’t mean that a drink is simply water, so always read the label to find out what’s in your flavored water.
