Last Saturday (20 August), Singapore was surprised to hear the Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong talk about the perils of diabetes, caused by sugar particularly in white rice and in soft drinks. Local drinks manufacturers of popular beverages have agreed to lower their sugar content, but by how much? Right now, a can of cola contains 38g of sugar. That’s over the recommended limit of 37.5g for men and 25g for women (American Heart Association).
This is one of the reasons why Nanz decided to take this business on: it promotes
consumption of no or less sugar, and it is a great tool for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
PM Lee said, “The best is to drink plain water. Better still, drink PUB water.” We couldn’t
agree more. Medically speaking, water has loads of benefits, like increasing your energy and
relieving fatigue, helping you to control your hunger pangs and to eat less, giving you clear
skin, removes toxins from your system, reduces constipation and more.
But as we all know, plain water can be kinda boring.
Well, we have good news: SodaStream makes water exciting! Yes, even PUB water! SodaStream lets you create sparkling water in seconds—and it’s been proven that people
drink 1.5 times their normal intake of water after using a SodaStream. Simply chill your
bottle of water, then carbonate it when you’re looking for a delicious sparkling drink!
If you want to make your plain water un-plain, we suggest adding lemon, lime, orange or
other fruit slices to your water. These have way less sugar than a can of soda.
But if you’re craving cola, here’s even better news: a SodaStream cola-flavoured sparkling
drink contains only 12g of sugar vs commercial colas which have 38g.
Let SodaStream help you make that journey to a healthier lifestyle a fun and yummy one!
