From creating sugar-free flavored drinks to providing healthy lunch to school kids, these women-led companies are leading the way in meeting the rising demand for healthy food and drinks; they raise the hopes for a healthier future not only for our country but the world.
Multinational food, soda and alcohol giants are employing the same tactics that made tobacco a pariah in the global public health conversation nearly two decades ago.
In the past decade there has been an explosion of 'health' drinks as opposed to 'energy' drinks. But, is it possible to find health in a bottle?
The concern raised by Fool Me Twice is that the global food system has been increasingly filled with more processed foods and beverages that include artificial ingredients, added sugar, added salt, saturated fats, and other components that perturb metabolism and contribute to weight gain and NCDs.
Less soda and juice, but more calories from sports drinks, energy drinks and sweetened teas and coffees.
How the science of telomeres turned into a spurious health trend.
Research finds endurance athletes often need to drink less than they do—sometimes much less.
In this blog post, we will go over ways you can replace that sugary soda and more with healthy beverages that are even more satisfying.
Juice is, nutritionally, not much better than soda. How did U.S. consumers come to believe that oranges, in any form, were an important part of a healthy diet?
e all know that fizzy drinks are bad for our health, but the latest research proves just how terrible they are.
Researchers at Birzeit University in the Palestinian West Bank found that drinking carbonated drinks increased food consumption by 20 percent, compared to drinking flat beverages.
Americans now officially drink more bottled water than soda. It’s a shift that decades ago might have seemed unthinkable—that consumers would buy a packaged version of something they could get free from a tap. But bottled-water sales have been growing in the U.S. ever since the arrival of Perrier in the 1970s. The gains accelerated in recent years amid concerns about the health effects of sugary drinks and the safety of public-water supplies.
“Although we can’t prove cause and effect, these data suggest that we should be cautious about drinking sugary beverages,” said the lead author, Matthew P. Pase, a senior research fellow at Boston University. “They’re empty calories that contribute to weight gain and metabolic disease.”
There are only so many times you can say, “Just water for me, thanks,” when the waiter takes your beverage order before you start to get bored. Water is a healthy and safe bet, sure. In fact, it can’t be beat. So what do you do when you want more options but don’t want to stray from the healthy side of things?
There's no question: Health drinks are trendy. It's why your local drugstore has more brands of coconut water than it does dish soap. And while this surge in wellness drinks is an undoubtedly good thing, it can be tough to know which actually deliver the many promises on their bottles and which are all... liquid.
While coconut water is low in calories, rich in potassium, and fat and cholesterol free, the evidence that it is actually better than plain water for simple hydration is unfortunately lacking.
For those who don’t drink, who aren’t drinking right now or who maybe drank too much the night before, a nonalcoholic beverage made with well-balanced, interesting flavors and thirst-quenching properties can be hard to come by. Consuming trendy sparkling waters by the case may be enough for some, but it can be nice to have something more, a drink just this side of extra.
Enter the nonalcoholic cocktail, otherwise known as the mocktail.
Corporate social responsibility campaigns subtly shift "responsibility" for healthfulness onto the consumer and away from companies' fattening products.
For years I have watched big beverages brands navigate exciting brand partnerships with nonprofits, and this year I co-founded a beverage startup with environmental sustainability as a foundational pillar.
Drinking lots of water doesn’t reduce your chronic disease risk or make your skin look better — but it can help you lose weight.
As public health officials and experts work to solve America's obesity and diabetes epidemics, they're increasingly turning to one ingredient as the culprit: added sugar. Despite signs that more Americans are quitting sugar-loaded soda, researchers worry the general public is still consuming too much added sugar through other means.
We took a look at a few beverages that appear to be healthy to see just how much sugar they actually contain. All of the drinks had more sugar than what the WHO recommends.
From coconut water to kombucha, these good-for-you beverages will keep you going from morning to night.
