The site said in a report that: “The only drink you will find in the supermarket that you should not drink is a fruit flavored drink.”
This drink is often colored and its packaging catches the eye, but here the good news ends, according to the report, which described these drinks as being full of sugar, but not the natural sugar you find in fruits or fresh juice, but added sugar, which is “dangerous.”
The report considered SoBe drinks one of the scariest options on the market. For example, their cranberry and grapefruit flavored drinks contain 250 calories, 63 grams of carbohydrates and 63 grams of added sugar.
And when you think about added sugar, the report adds, you need to keep in mind that the American Heart Association advises men that they should not consume more than 36 grams of added sugar per day, and women should not consume more than 25 grams per day.
Eating large amounts of added sugar has serious risks because it means that there are high calories, according to the site, which indicated that many studies have proven that all of this can lead to weight gain.
Another study found that those who got 17 to 21% of their calories from added sugar were actually 38% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease.
