Is vitamin water zero good or bad for diabetes
Download Diabetes Management Book:
Hi, I am Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I am going to answer the question, is vitamin water zero good for diabetes. But before you get into that, be sure to download my free diabetes management book, which also includes a guide to grocery shopping for diabetes (foods to eat and avoid).
Vitamin water sounds very interesting right? And the zero water vitamin sounds even more interesting. I knew by name that it was a product of Coca Cola Bottling, that kind of having a monopoly on all "zero" names. So I went to their website to see what I could find on this product.
The first words, for some reason, that caught my attention were "reverse osmosis water." Now, I studied chemistry and I know what osmosis is, it's basically where the molecules will pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated one that expects to reach equilibrium. So what is reverse osmosis? Is Coke trying to reach a state of imbalance?
But there is no explanation on your website, not even in the FAQ segment, and that has to be a frequent question, right?
Therefore, I looked for and discovered that "reverse osmosis is a process in which dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from a solution (such as water) by forcing the water through a semipermeable membrane.
So basically I took all that time to tell you that the vitamin water is filtered. But the filtered water does not sound so cool does it?
Vitamin Water Zero comes in 8 flavors, does not contain calories or carbohydrates. The "vitamin" part comes in the form of A, B6, C and E and some minerals. Coca Cola points out on its website that this product is made with OGM so if you are not into those, this product may not be for you.
Is vitamin Zero good for diabetes? It's not bad for diabetes. It looks like a healthy alternative to sugary drinks. But I think $ 40 for a pack of 24 bottles is a bit expensive. You may want to get bottled water and a multivitamin bottle and save yourself some money.
I hope this answers your question is good or bad vitamin water for diabetes. Do not forget to get your diabetes management book.
Let me know if you have any other questions related to diabetes.
