Nexba is naturally sugar free, but what does this actually mean you ask? Well, let us enlighten you!
At Nexba Naturally Sugar Free means, no sugar & nothing artificial. Yep you heard, no sugar AND nothing artificial.
We get asked all the time how we manage to create such incredibly tasty drinks with only a few calories.
You're probably used to reading product labels that state that they are ‘Naturally Sugar Free’ only to find out they are packed with fruit extract or fruit concentrate which is ‘naturally’ loaded with sugar. Not only this, they more than likely contain artificial sweeteners such as aspartame or acesulfame potassium which have been shown to have detrimental impacts on your health.
So, how do we do it you may be wondering!
Removing the Sugar
At Nexba our team of experts have spent years in innovation matching the natural sugar curve to bring you sugar free beverages that don’t compromise on taste.
We do this via a mixture of ingredients that include; Stevia, Erythrotol, Natural flavours and fruit extract. (Yes, you heard right we do use fruit extract but we remove the sugar, keep reading!).
Stevia is made from the naturally sweet leaves of the Stevia plant and has been used for centuries in Paraguay and Brazil to sweeten drinks. Stevia is naturally 200-300 times sweeter than sugar, however, unlike sugar, research has shown that it has no effects on insulin, blood glucose levels or tooth decay.
It is made by harvesting and drying the leaves of the Stevia plant, which are then boiled into a broth, filtered, purified and dried to create crystallised stevia extract which contains no calories and no carbohydrates.
Despite its complicated name Erythritol is naturally occurring in pears, melons, human tissue and body fluids.
Erythritol is made by fermenting natural sugars found in corn. In this process, healthy bacteria eat the sugar turning it into Erythritol, this is a similar process used to make yoghurt, wine and beer and effectively removes all the sugar.
Unlike sugar, Erythritol has no calories and does not cause a glycemic response. It is not fully absorbed by your digestive system, as it can’t be broken down which also means that unlike other sweeteners it does not cause a laxative effect.
All Nexba flavours are 100% natural and always contain flavours from the named fruit, that means when we call our drink ‘lemon’, there is plenty of Natural Lemon flavour inside the bottle!
No sugar fruit extract
Our genius team of growers have found a way to extract all the goodness of fruit whilst leaving the sugar behind. This process is incredibly complex with many years of research behind it, so rest assured that our extracts are 100% sugar free.
No artificial preservatives, instead Nexba use Citric Acid and Malic acid which are both found in citrus foods such as oranges, lemons and limes.
