DASH vs Sugary Fizzy Drinks
How is DASH so delicious with zero sugar?
Quenching that oooh I could do with a fizzy drink feeling... but without the sugar or sweeteners seems too good to be true, we know. But goodness is what DASH does all day long.
We’ve all had that moment on a hot summer's day when we can’t think of anything better than cracking open an oh-so-cold and refreshing fizzy drink. According to research done by fitness chain Pure Gym, “Brits consume on average 322 cans of sugary drinks a year.” Wow. That’s a load of fake highs and crazy crashes right there.
The global diabetes community states that “in the UK, The Department of Health recommends that no more than 10% of energy each day should come from sugar. A half-litre bottle of a sweetened drink contributes around 60% of the recommended maximum sugar intake.”
This means for each lunchtime pick-me-up soda you are taking in more than half of your daily sugar intake. Not only that, but as fizzy drinks rapidly increase your blood sugar levels you then get a crashing feeling after making those afternoon office hours tick away a lot more slowly…. Make the swap for a DASH to quench your lunchtime bubbly thirst without having to deal with the get me to my bed feeling.
DASH is just 3 simple ingredients: Water, Bubbles, Wonky Fruit.
It’s just water with bubbles, infused with wonky fruit, giving it a deliciously refreshing and guilt-free taste.
No sugar, how? We do not use fruit juice, which would add natural sugar to our drinks. Instead, we use real wonky fruit extracts to infuse our water, which gives it that wonderful natural flavour…without the sugar. No afternoon sugar crash for a DASH drinker.
Okay, but why don’t you just drink water? Drinking water is great… it keeps you hydrated and it’s refreshingly delicious in its own right, but sometimes you just want to add that element of fun into your sipping. That’s where DASH comes in… water made fun again.
Need more convincing? Let’s add another stat slice into the mix:
The pH level is less acidic than conventional soft drinks. Our DASH ranges from 2.9-3.4pH whereas on average most fizzy drinks range from 2.4-2.7pH.
Go on, make the swap…we dare you.
