Finding a healthy alternative to sodas, flavored waters, juices and sports drinks can be like finding a needle in a haystack, until now. Introducing Nutri-Twist Wow Water, created by a dad, Peter Andoni, who wanted to provide his son with a healthy beverage. It all started when Peter’s son, Alex, was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes at the age of 7 - the same age Alex’s mother, Lisa, was diagnosed with Type-1 diabetes. Alex’s diagnosis led the family to make some lifestyle changes with a focus on vegetables, fruits with lower sugar contents, and products with less carbs and healthier options as opposed to processed foods. An active athlete, Alex plays on soccer, hockey and lacrosse teams. The family was soon faced with a new obstacle…the sports drinks and juice boxes many parents offered after sports practices and games. These drinks often contained high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and added sugars, so Peter and Lisa discouraged Alex from drinking them. A search for healthier drink alternatives proved fruitless. So Andoni decided to do something about it. The result: Nutri-Twist Wow Water, a beverage with about 40 calories and 11 grams of carbs per 10-ounce bottle, in Strawberry Kiwi, Berry Fusion, and Tropical Citrus flavors.
The drinks are free from high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors and sweeteners, caffeine, gluten and peanut by-products. They are enhanced with Vitamin B, C and D, and electrolytes, and sweetened with stevia and natural cane sugar. Five percent of sales go to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Nutri-Twist Wow Water is not just for kids or people who live with diabetes. It’s a healthier option for anybody who cares about what they ingest or have their children or loved ones drink. Nutri-Twist Wow Water is currently available in Cub Foods grocery stores, some local stores and restaurants in Michigan, and on Amazon.com.
