Beverage Flavor Ingredients
With a keen eye focused on caloric intake, todays’ consumers quickly realize that calories consumed in liquid format add up quickly. Tea and coffee are calorie-free and burst with the healthy benefits of antioxidants and flavonoids; but add cream, sugar, whipped cream and flavored syrup and these naturally beneficial beverages are transformed into calorie-rich indulgences. Iced tea is a zero calorie and natural beverage that carries a healthy halo until we cross the bridge of our choice of sweetener or flavor enhancement. Consider a touch of 100% fruit juice or honey to add that desired sweetness and keep your beverage “natural” and delivering on the promise of whole foods goodness.
