As always I’ve highlighted the ingredients that we need to take a closer look at.
This ingredients is a highly questionable one, because it’s an umbrella term, meaning that many ingredients can be added here and on the ingredients label you would only see one ingredient called natural flavors.
This can cause problems for vegan, because they source of the ingredients are almost never disclosed on the ingredients label. So natural flavors could contain ingredients sourced from animals. However according to the website, IZZE drinks contains 30% sparkling water and 70% fruit juice, leading to the conclusion that the natural flavors would consist of fruits.
It’s amazing that all flavors of IZZE drinks are vegan-friendly. With natural fruit flavors, this makes a perfect choice for vegans. A lot of drinks like IZZE often contains aspartame, but IZZE does not contain that ingredient. Many vegans tends to stay away from aspartame, because of the many animal-testings that was done to make sure it was safe for humans to consume.
Thanks for reading, take care!
