Are Low Sugar Drinks Not Healthy? Bubble Water Drinks

Indeed, for taste, sugar-free drinks still use sugar substitutes, adding sweeteners such as aspartame, cyclamate, saccharin, and acesulfame. However, there is no clear evidence that these additives are harmful.
Sweeteners Harmful? No Evidence
Acesulfame K is a kind of food additive, no nutrition, but good taste, no calories, no metabolism, no absorption in the human body, good stability to heat and acid, is the fourth generation of synthetic sweetener in the world. Aspartame is also a sugar substitute approved for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
They are similar to saccharin and are hundreds of times sweeter than sucrose.
Therefore, only a little sweetener can be added to the beverage to improve the taste, and the heat is almost negligible, although there is no nutrition but not harmful.
At present, the sweeteners allowed to be used in China have passed strict safety assessment. The Codex Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) of the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has assessed that as long as these sweeteners are not consumed in excess, they will not be harmful to the human body, nor will they cause fetal malformations or carcinogenesis. Pregnant women and children can eat with confidence.
China also has strict limits on the use of sweeteners, as long as the legal use can be considered safe.
For example, the safety standard for cyclamate formulated by JECFA is no more than 11 mg per kilogram of body weight per day, that is, no more than 660 mg per day for an adult weighing 60k kg. The sweetness of 660 milligrams of sodium cyclamate is equivalent to 330 grams of sucrose.
As far as the average person is concerned, it is difficult to eat so many sweets every day, and occasionally a bottle of drink is not too much.
Therefore, compared with the high calories of traditional sweet drinks, low-sugar drinks are naturally welcomed by modern people who are over-nourished, especially those who consume too much calories.
However, with the rapid development of economy, consumers have more money in their wallets, and their basic needs have been met. Now they begin to pursue quality-food fullness is one aspect, but more importantly, healthy nutrition. We have entered an era of consumption upgrading.
In the era of consumption upgrading, health is naturally the trend.
In line with this upgrading trend, some natural and healthy water began to be favored by high-end consumers, such as coconut water, bubble water, beverage companies have also been in this layout.
According to information from the beverage industry media BevNet, due to the increasing awareness of consumer health, bubble drinks are showing the opposite development trend of sugary carbonated drinks and are growing significantly.
A coffee roasting retailer called "Limitless Coffee & Tea" in Chicago, USA, injected the caffeine filtered out when making decaffeinated coffee into bubble water to make a caffeine bubble water called Lightly Caffeinated.
In addition to Limitless Coffee & Tea, other sparkling carbonated water brands, including Phocus, Wave Soda and Sparkling Ice's caffeine version drinks, will be launched in June this year.
After all this talk, what is bubble water?
Its English name is Sparkling Water, which is sparkling water, and it is also a mineral water rich in minerals. Mineral elements include potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and other elements that are of great benefit to the human body.
One of the most important properties of bubble water is "natural". Natural sparkling water must be a shot in the mountains and forests, whirring out of mineral water, with small bubbles.
Of course, later, because water is easy to find but hard to find, more and more brands of sparkling water began to pump gas into natural mineral water.
This kind of "water is natural water, gas is artificial gas" water, also counted into the bubble water team, called "artificial bubble water".
There is also a kind of water made by "pure water artificial pumping", called soda water. However, the taste is like sparkling water, and it cannot be "mixed" into the team of sparkling water to rub against this wave of heat. Because they can imitate the taste of sparkling water, but they can't imitate natural nutrients.
Bubble water does not contain sugar, cool and refreshing, and has lemon, lime, raspberry and other flavors. The water contains carbonic acid, which can form carbon dioxide in the human body and dissipate body heat.
Compared to low-sugar or sugar-free drinks, sparkling water is obviously a little more functional. It has many effects such as suppressing appetite, eliminating constipation, blocking the absorption of sugars and fats, and neutralizing the acidity in the body, so it is highly sought after by healthy people.
There is even a saying that "to drink beer, to drink brewed, to drink coffee, to drink sparkling water. But at the same time, their commonality is that the price is not cheap. a box (24 bottles/330mml) paris water sold in jingdong 159.
Although expensive, there must be a market in the future.
China's bottled water market is becoming saturated, according to market research agency Mintel. China's bottled water sales are expected to reach 27 billion liters in 2017, up from 25 billion liters in 2015, but the growth rate slowed from 5 percent in 2015 to 4.2 percent in 2017.
"As Chinese consumers increasingly drink bottled water, brands are under pressure to differentiate." Food and beverage analyst Loris Lee (Loris Li) analysis, "although the market has become saturated, but the opportunity for innovation still exists, the key to maintain market growth is high-end."
At present, the common brands of bubble water in the domestic market include: Nestle's Paris Water and San Peilu, Swiss VOSS bubble water acquired by Huabin Group, Nongfu Mountain Spring, Baisui Mountain's Blairquhan Benlaiwang, etc.
According to Mintel's data, Chinese consumers in the 20-49 age range have begun to be interested in new drinking water products, and more than half of them have begun to drink odorless sparkling water.
In 2015, the sales of bubbly water in the Chinese market increased by 29%, while in 2016 the proportion of consumers in this age range drinking odorless bubbly water rose to 60%.
Such data also gives more confidence to healthy beverage producers.
Therefore, it can be seen that some time ago, the coconut water giant Vitaco also entered the bubble water market and launched a new product of coconut water with bubbles, aiming to attract traditional coconut water, bubble water and functional beverage lovers.
Like sparkling water, coconut water is a natural health drink. This liquid from the inside of the coconut, usually extracted from the 6-9 month growth period of coconut, compared with the coconut juice classified as a plant protein drink, the taste is more refreshing and healthier, and is even regarded as a substitute for functional drinks.
In short, both coconut water and sparkling water are natural and healthy drinks, which are more nutritious than low-sugar drinks, but at the same time, the price is much higher than that of simple low-sugar drinks, which stops most consumers.
Therefore, the low-sugar beverage market is bound to be a big cake in the future, and it is worth thinking about the layout and division.
Although the market of natural gas soaked water coconut water is small, the profit will not be small when it is sold to the world like other cocoa. At the same time, as consumption continues to upgrade, more consumers will inevitably turn to natural drinks.
