Vitaminwater name misleading? You tell me.

8.12 teaspoons

vitamin water The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) believes consumers are being misled by the name “Vitaminwater” and its counter names “Defense,” “Energy,” and “Revive.” And Judge J. Gleeson from the U.S. District Count for Eastern District of New York agrees.   Although the beverage does offer minimal amounts of vitamins and minerals, a 20 ounce container also contains a significant amount of added sugar – 8.12 teaspoons! 

 This is a victory for the consumer who wants to eat/drink more healthfully.  It’s sending a message to the big corporations that we no longer will be taken advantage of by misleading healthful claims.
