7 Up Cherry Antioxidant: Risk, Nutrition and Dye Content

7 Up Cherry Antioxidant: Risk, Nutrition and Dye Content

The DyeDiet risk and nutrition diagram, I do hope, is red enough to give you a warning sign. This means that you waste your money, health and time by taking high chemical risk of DDFI = 16/10 ~ 1.6 and receiving ridiculously low nutritional value of: DDNF = 10/24 = 0.4.

Yes, you can read on the label: “100% natural flavors” but keep in mind that the drink “Contains NO juice” and the natural flavors were made in a chemical lab anyway.  Secondly, the antioxidant they boast about has NOTHING to do with the cherry. It is added vitamin E and the red color comes with the infamous synthetic azo dye Red 40. Still want to “enjoy” 7 Up Cherry Antioxidant? Keep reading.

Just the other day 7 UP maker was sued over antioxidant claims. The lawsuit was filed with the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles seeking class-action status on behalf of purchasers nationwide of the products, a variety of financial damages, and a halt to the alleged misleading advertising. Have you learned enough?

Bottom line. Do not fool yourself. Stay away from the sodas. Drink filtered or mineral water  or, if it’s too boring for you, try Welch’s 100% natural grape juice diluted with water to reduce possible negative impact of too much sugar. Hydrate Yourself Straight!
