Soft drinks are - especially on summer days- fresh, sparkling and thirst-quenching. However, the fact that it tastes good is because of the sugar. The average carbonated lemonades, energy drinks and sports drinks mainly consist of water, to which a lot of sugar is added to flavour it. Apart from the fact that this is extremely bad for your teeth and your health, you can also get out of shape because of it! Do you want to endlessly enjoy cooling, responsible drinks? Discover 7 great alternatives, all organic and free from additives. Cheers!
Russia Cola is the new clever interpretation of a well-known taste. This sparkling soft drink is based on three classics from nature: the vitalizing power of (black) tea, the cleansing power of citrus fruits (lemon, sweet lime and bergamot) and the antioxidant effect of organic spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger).
With a unique mix of natural herbal extracts, every bottle of Russia Cola boosts your body from the inside out. Only organic cane sugar is used as a sweetener in Russia Cola, which has a significantly lower amount than that of the - refined (!) - sugars that are found in other soft drinks.

Pineo has a delicious, soft taste and has a history that goes back to the year 852 AD. Pineo recently won gold in the top category 'low mineral waters' (less than 250 mg) without added carbon dioxide, at the Fine Water Taste & Design Awards 2019, in Stockholm. The Pineo water comes from the depth of the Beneidó Mountain range in the Spanish Pyrenees - from the holy mountain, stretching 1500 metres in altitude, in the municipality of Estamariu. Pineo is ripe water; it comes to the surface of its own accord and is immediately bottled in glass bottles, retaining all qualities.
