WTF!! You mean to tell me I’ve been drinking a beverage that taste like water seasoned with a Flintstone vitamin for nothing. I used to feel proud saying my daily coffee was/is Vitamin Water. I have a space dedicated in my fridge for it right now. Damn….. looks like I can quit buying that drink.
By including the suggestion that the product will “keep you healthy” or “help bring about a healthy state of physical and mental being” alongside such statements, the quoted language implies that the nutrient content of vitaminwater may help consumers maintain healthy dietary practices. I conclude, therefore, in light of the language and context in which they are used, that the statements on the “defense” and “B- Relaxed” labels constitute implied nutrient content claims which use the word “healthy.” Such claims are in violation of violation of FDA regulations because . . . vitaminwater achieves its nutritional content solely through fortification that violates FDA policy.
No more flashy hype drink for me. Time for just plain good old fashion soda. It probably has more nutritional value than Vitamin Water does. I have been bamboozled.
