Exclamation The Dark Side Of Vitaminwater

By John Robbins -- Aug. 5, 2010

Now here's something you wouldn't expect. Coca-Cola is being sued by a non-profit public interest group, on the grounds that the company's vitaminwater products make unwarranted health claims. No surprise there. But how do you think the company is defending itself?

In a staggering feat of twisted logic, lawyers for Coca-Cola are defending the lawsuit by asserting that "no consumer could reasonably be misled into thinking vitaminwater was a healthy beverage."

Does this mean that you'd have to be an unreasonable person to think that a product named "vitaminwater," a product that has been heavily and aggressively marketed as a healthy beverage, actually had health benefits...?

...Noting that the soft drink giant wasn't (was not) claiming the lawsuit was wrong on factual grounds, the judge wrote that, "Accordingly, I must accept the factual allegations in the complaint as true."

The company I work for used to have the distribution rights to Vitamin Water before Coke bought it out. It was really a good beverage before the giant took it over.

Do you think they tinkered around with the ingredients after they bought it?

Yeah i heard about this while back but didn't hear that quote, classic. I never drank vitamin water just for the fact 50 cent advertised it, and thought since when is he a health nut. then when saw guy from jersey shore I said would never even taste it. guess my logic was correct! hahahaha

I honestly don't think it was healthy since it's introduction into the market.

I always ask myself: from where are those vitamins and whatever other ingredients derived from? From natural sources, or are they made in some lab?

Artificial ingredients and synthetic vitamins are no better than ingesting "a little" poison every now and then.

I've been drinking it lately. Today, before I saw this thread, I did the research and saw it's kind of a gimmick. Can't say I am surprised.
