Flavored Water Vs. Pure

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if any flavored waters contain gluten? Also, does drinking alot of flavored water have the same or nearly the same benefits alot of plain water or does it have to be pure water?

I know that all Gatoraid products are gluten free to include Propel - all flavors. (at last check, which was recent).

Flavored water is definitely not the same as pure water, especially if it contains artificial sweetners and flavors. It tastes good but it's more like a soft drink. You can easily make your own flavored water though. Pour water into a pitcher and add some fresh cucumber and orange slices. Let the pitcher sit in the fridge overnight. Lemon also works well. If you make it yourself, your water will taste good and you won't have to worry about gluten or toxic artificial flavors.

I've always liked plain water with a slice of lemon or lime; after being used to that, the new flavored waters taste horribly chemical to me.

Love the idea of cucumber and orange--I'll have to try that! Thanks for posting the idea, Mango!

i think i remember this...was it all sorts of berry flavors? drank something like it when i was a kid, remember the blue bottle.

another good one is cucumber and honeydew water. i think when i tried it, they had mint in it too...but can't remember...

good ol' fresh water is the best to me :D or on occasion fruit juice (100% fruit) like Naked Juices :P mmm, my fave!
