Ingredients are :

Scottish Spring Water, Citric Acid, Flavourings, Preservatives, (Dimethyl Bicarbonate, Sodium Benzonate) Sweeteners (Acesulfame K, Sucraiose)

I know normal water is best but I only drink about a fraction of it while I drink all of the flavoured water. So I'd just like to know if Flavoured Water is a decent enough substitute. Sorry if this sounds stupid but I couldn't get a definite awnser anywhere else.

Thanks.

    is this for the whole litre bottle or per 100 mls or what - the info you have given doesn't really mean anything unless we know for how much liquid these details relate?  Some flavoured waters are quite high in callories, sugar etc so if you are going to have them to drink pick one that is low - obviously plain water is best cos it doesn't have any additives in but if you are unable to drink it for whatever reason then this might be a decent substitute but unable to advise really without know all the info - I would say calculate how many callories there are in the quantity of of this water you intend to drink and  make sure you count them cos sometimes people forget to count drinks and often they are very calorific - good luck

    I still believe that natural drinking water without any flavorings is the best liquid intake that we can have. I know some other people doesn't like drinking plain water and they are looking for additional taste or flavorings. If your purpose is to enhance your health I think natural and unflavored water is the best for you. However, if you can't really drink water with any flavor, try some other alternatives. I read in  that Red Tea is better compared to black tea or coffee. I am not a coffee or tee drinker but just try it yourself if it will help you consume more liquid. Good luck to you. And I hope that you update this thread about your experience. Thank you. smile
