I'm trying to put together a graphic of sugar free or low cal drinks other than water
Any I've missed? Ideally quite universal/readily available
Still spouting this meme when Aspartame is one of the most studied and tested substances on the planet and conclusively safe
10 years ago Aspartame was carcinogenic
5 years ago Aspartame contained calories and spiked your insulin
2 years ago Aspartame made you crave more sweet foods and drinks
These memes are retarded when they come out and you should be ashamed of yourself for talking without reading studies.
that depends a LOT on the brand.
some of them are very watery, others have a thick layer of fat floating on the top.
some brands label them differently: coconut cream (fatty) vs. coconut milk (watery)
The only """sugar free""" and low calorie drinks that exists are water, carbonated water, lemon water (other infusions), tea and coffee. Fruit juices and shit like that contains fuck load of sugar (not refined sugar, but still sugar) and calories. It's better to eat your fruit than drinking it since you don't destroy the fibers which helps you digest it better and not letting your blood sugar levels skyrocket.
>Ounce per ounce, most unflavored coconut water contains 5.45 calories, 1.3 grams sugar, 61 milligrams (mg) of potassium, and 5.45 mg of sodium compared to Gatorade, which has 6.25 calories, 1.75 grams of sugar, 3.75 mg of potassium, and 13.75 mg of sodium.
That's not "low in sugar". You Amerifats are fucking pathetic. You're right about the fruit juices though, didn't realize those were vegetable juices in the pic.
I've been recommended Mio a few times, never tried it out. I'm not sure if they sell it here and it looks fucking expensive.
Nonsense, water kefir is also zero sugar when made correctly, hot chocolate and kombucha are also as close to zero calories and zero sugar as makes no difference.
And everyone knows fruit juice is laden with sugar.
Nice cherry picking, the same article you pasted from basically shits on what you're saying
>Plain coconut water could be a better choice for adults and kids looking for a beverage that is less sweet. But don’t overdo it, says Lillian Cheung, DSc, RD, of Harvard School of Public Health. “One 11-ounce container has 60 calories and if you drink several in one day, the calories can add up quickly,"
The coconut water I drink contains 50cals~ and 3g of carb per 100ml, making it both lower sugar and calories than all milks. Granted it's high calorie compared to the rest of the list, but that's why the caveat is there.
You amerifats are fucking pathetic.
>Nice cherry picking, the same article you pasted from basically shits on what you're saying
Except it isn't. It's still 50 calories per 100 ml and if you're comparing that to real sugar free and low calorie drinks like tea and coffee (0-5 calories) it's a lot. And who said milk was a low calorie drink?
>Any form of Coca Cole, Pepsi, or Sprite
What are you doing?
I don't care if it says "sugar free", all they do is use different chemicals that aren't legally defined as sugar. I thought this was common knowledge?
>I've decided nipples are the definition of milk
You're talking about one type of milk and refusing to accept english language. Please stop being purposefully autistic, it's embarrassing.
Sucrose a problem?
Kiwi Strawberry master race
What is it with americans and every fucking drink must be sweet as hell?
Whats so bad about drinking (and selling) a mix of 10% juice and water? Still a bit of taste, still very low in calories/sugar.
When I was in the US last year, I tried to buy something with a bit of taste, but mostly water based, and I made the mistake of not reading the ingredients list.
Bought some 0 calories "sparkling water and fruit" drink, thinking it was something like a slightly flavorued water or maybe even water + fruit.
Holy fucking shit!
It was the sweetest thing I ever drank!
After half of a bottle, I filled it up with water, and it still was sweeter than everything else.
So after diluting it down to 1/8th, it finally was only as sweet as normal sprite or some shit.
How on earth can you call something like that "fruit" and "refreshing"?
>What is it with americans and every fucking drink must be sweet as hell?
The bliss point.
Around the late 60's, early 70's companies began testing how much sugar they can add to a food product before it becomes overly sweet, but still enough to trigger a dopamine release.
Since then, just about all cheap, premade food (that isn't a dessert or candy) has that tested amount of sugar that reaches the bliss point.
>Show me the coconut nipple any time.
they've got three, they're just really hairy and inverted, like your mother's.
All kinds of sweeteners and flavours. I think it was pic related.
I didnt exactly expect it to be some 100% natural thing (even though it maybe said natural flavours?), but rather something like this: http://www.volvic.de/produkte/volvic-touch-zitrone.html
Can't find it in english. Essentially, it is mostly water, some flavours and that's it. Not exactly something I need everyday, but when I am paying for a bottle of water, I'd like to have some flavour added, but seems like this is an unknown concept in the US
