Functional water, Aquarius, from Coca-Cola
Coca-Cola has added a functional water drink to its growing portfolio in its efforts to become a ‘total beverage company’.
Aquarius, availble in Lemon and Lime varieties combines simple hydration with essential minerals.
Aquarius Lemon is infused with Zinc, which contributes to normal cognitive function. Each 250ml serving contains 20% of your daily Zinc requirement.
Aquarius Lime includes 20% of your daily need of magnesium, per 250ml serving size, contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Aquarius contains sucrose and fructose, at 3.3g per 100ml – below the limit for the sugar tax. The drink, which is available in a 400ml bottle, has added mineral salts, but does not contain artificial sweeteners or flavourings.
Jon Woods, general manager at Coca-Cola Great Britain and Ireland, said: “We are continually looking for ways to expand our portfolio and give people a wider choice of drinks to suit different tastes, lifestyles and occasions.
“Aquarius provides a new great-tasting option for everyday moments when you are looking for a revitalising way to hydrate, with added minerals, and will play an important role in our ambition to continue to offer consumers more choice.”
