Well this is shocking. Apparently, Coca Colas Vitaminwater® is not as healthy as it claims to be. What? A Coca Cola product being unhealthy?! Well I've never...
The Center for Science for the Public Interest has decided to sue Coca Cola (the company which bought Glacéau which is behind Vitaminwater® and Smartwater®). According to them, Glacéau has:
"violated FDA regulations by making health claims about vitaminwater even though it does not meet required minimum nutritional thresholds, by using the word ‘healthy' in implied nutrient content claims even though vitaminwater's fortification does not comply with FDA policy, and by using a product name that references only two of vitaminwater's ingredients, omitting the fact that there is a key, unnamed ingredient [sugar] in the product."
So wait, wait, wait...does this mean that you actually don't get your essential vitamins from this funky colourful drink that was partly created by rapper 50 cent and that you don't get more focused and alert from drinking it?
I don't know about you guys but I'm shocked.
