Drinks
A Drink is usually a beverage that consists almost entirely of Water along with some other flavoring. It could be hot or cold, alcoholic or non-alcoholic but the water component stays constant.
  • Soft Drinks-: Soft drinks are produced by injecting carbon dioxide into the drink at a pressure of several atmospheres. They are commonly sold in stores in bottles and cans, popular brands being Coco-cola and Pepsi and their other variants. In recent years, there has been a growing demand for alternatives to sugar-heavy soft drinks. Thus to capture the ‘health conscious’ market, Soft drink majors have introduced what is known as ‘Diet’ soft drinks which is made out of sugar alternatives, chemicals mainly. Over the years many studies have been done which have linked Soft Drinks to Obesity, lack of sleep, and Diabetes. On 19 May 2006, UK Education Secretary Alan Johnson announced new minimum nutrition standards for school food. Amongst a wide range of measures, from September 2006, school lunches will be free from fizzy drinks.

  • Juice-: Juices are considered a healthier alternative to soft Drinks. However, the canned and bottled varieties are generally as sugar laden as soft drinks and don’t let the ‘fresh fruit juice’ tag fool you because they are almost always made of artificial flavorings and preservatives. However, you can make fresh fruit juice at home which is a healthier option. Popular juices include apple, orange, tangerine, cranberry, grapefruit, pineapple, tomato, blackcurrant, grape, pomegranate and lemon. One of the first persons to advocate and popularize the drinking of fresh vegetable and fruit juices was Norman W. Walker. He published his first book Raw Vegetable Juices back in 1936. He also operated one of the first juice plants in Long Beach, California, making fresh raw juices daily. Fruit juice consumption in the US has increased in recent years, possibly due to public perception of juices as healthy natural nutrient sources.

  • Sports or Energy Drinks-: Sports drink is a beverage designed to help athletes rehydrate, as well as replenish electrolytes, sugar, and other nutrients, which can be depleted after strenuous training or competition. Gatorade is the most popular amongst the Sports Drinks brands that have seen unprecedented popularity amongst the teenage crowd over the last decade. In the United States Energy drinks have come to be associated with being ‘cool’. However there’s more to these energy drinks, they contain high levels of Caffeine and Sugar which are unhealthy.
