Vitamin Water Update

Original Post Here.


I have received quite a bit of varying information with these drinks. Of course, when dealing with percent daily values there is going to be some fluctuation in recorded measurements. There is also likely to be some variation between flavours.


For this chart, I have physically looked at the labels for Jones 24C, Aqaufina +, and Glaceau and calculated the percent values myself (Jones 24C is a new addition to the chart).

Personally, I think Jones has gone a bit overboard; there are risks to consuming too much Vitamin B. And I am quite certain I recorded those numbers correctly, but I feel that something must be off somewhere.



I maintain my previous belief that vitamins come best without sugar, are cheaper as supplements, and tastier as food.
