Every time I visit Whole Foods Market I get a feeling that any item there costs at least $4.99. Well, I explain to myself, that’s what we have to pay for the high quality food and guaranteed safety. And when I look at the receipt I think: This is another good reason to eat less! After all, you don’t need that much of a healthy food for proper nourishment whereas junk food is never enough because it’s “empty.” Finally I was able to find a $1.99 item on the beverages shelf. It was Lemon Lime All Natural Soda, product of USA. Nothing artificial. Can you imagine a 2L bottle of soda without phosphoric acid or without these toxins: Red 40, Yellow 6 and brominated vegetable oil? Luckily, here it is:
The beverage is made with 100% cane sugar, citric acid and natural flavors. No HFCS, no artificial colors, no caffeine. As the result, with this Lemon Lime soda you will not be exposed to a chemical risk, DDFI = 0/6 = 0. You shouldn’t be surprised by its low nutritional value, DDNF = 6/12 = 0.5. It is just sweetened (~ 48 teaspoons of cane sugar per 2 L bottle) and naturally flavored carbonated water with no toxic food additives (no red segments in the above diagram).
All Natural Soda is no longer an elusive ghost from the past. It’s real! Just remember: sweetened drinks are treat, they are not designed to replace water in your diet. Find Lemon Lime soda at Whole Foods Market or elsewhere, hydrate yourself right!
