We’ve all heard it before, the sodas we’ve loved since childhood can cause numerous negative health effects. But did you know it’s super easy to make a homemade soda.
Sodas are typically full of added refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and empty calories. They’re just liquid sugar!
At Nature’s Flavors, we specialize in crafting natural and organic flavoring. So, we’re going to show you how to make a homemade soda. Let’s go over the 3 perks to making your own homemade soda!
All the Taste, None of the Artificial
When you craft some delicious homemade soda, you get to decide what kind of sugar goes in and how much. Organic cane sugar is unrefined, obtained from sugar cane, and it may be a better option for you than table sugar.
Flavor Your Sodas to Your Liking
Typically when you buy a pack of soda, it’s just one flavor. But with homemade soda, the flavor can depend on your imagination! But if you want a classic cola, Nature’s Flavors Organic Cola Syrup is made with organic cane sugar and nothing artificial!
How about a strawberry lime-carbonated drink? Simply combine a strawberry simple syrup and lime syrup into carbonated water! The only limit is how many flavored syrups you have! And at Nature’s Flavors, we have nearly 100 Flavored Organic Syrups!
Or, add a shot of your choice of vodka for a fizzy cocktail!
Every time you decide to make your own beverages and food, you are making a sustainable choice! Fast food restaurants require so many disposable products that aren’t necessary if you were eating at home or bring your own lunch.
Also, homemade sodas require significantly less water to produce compared to mass production. Plus, without the need for aluminum cans, there will be less waste in our landfills.
Research shows, “Beverage containers typically comprise 40% to 60% of roadside litter in non-deposit states”.
So, homemade soda isn’t just a better alternative for your health, but the health of our planet too!
Sum it All Up
Choosing to make your own flavorful fizzy drink is beneficial for you and your family’s health. You get to decide the flavors and the ingredients to use. Plus, it’s better for the environment!
