7 Health Foods That Are Junk in Disguise
“Vitamins + water = all you need.” At least, that’s the slogan for popular brand Vitaminwater (KO). How can vitamins and water not be good for you? After all, they are two essential components of a balanced diet. The problem with these nutrient-enhanced beverages is that they’re basically sugar water with a few synthetic vitamins thrown in. What the manufacturers don’t advertise is that the average Vitaminwater contains more than 32 grams of sugar. For some reason, “Vitaminsugarwater” doesn’t have the same ring to it. This misleading advertising has gotten Vitaminwater into trouble in the past, as initiatives such as The Children's Health Campaign have taken the brand to task for its misleading health claims.
