Is this Paleo-friendly?
« on: August 15, 2015, 03:18:47 PM »
Hello,

I recently went to our local supermarket and saw this:





It's from The Berry Company (http://www.theberrycompany.co.uk/)

I saw that they also make juices from Acai, Goji and other berries.

So, I wanted to ask you guys if this is paleo-friendly?

Thanks in advance!  ;D

Basically dilute sugar water.  It's this kind of thing that makes vegans unhealthy.

Consider staying away from that kind of stuff. It's hard to get boxed drinks and foods that are good on paleo. I actually will crack open a coconut for the coconut water and use the meat of the coconut to make a non-dairy milk. That way I'm able to get the most for my money. One of the other things that I do in the summer is to brew some green tea and mix it with a bit of honey and refrigerate it. It's a nice refreshing drink.

Good Luck,

I am sorry it's not a good find that you thought it to be :( Look, 8.4 g of sugar, that's 2 teaspoons in 100ml, ie. 4 spoons of sugar in a glass... That's a lot of sugar.
I bought yesterday Yellow tea at a local pharmacy, it's expensive (50g - a small package is 10 euros), but you really need just 4-5 (dried) leafs for a cup, that's how i saw Chinese making it. Maybe you could try it like that, and as Cavemangreay suggest, add some honey if you like?
Btw, over here it's marketed as being very useful for weight-loss, presumably because of high content of EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate). (Not sure how effective it is, just saying ;))

No its not friendly. It has processed sugar which is bad. Stay away
