Flavored water is water that’s sweetened with either sugar or artificial sweeteners, and contains natural or artificial flavorings.
Flavored water, like Hint and Propel, can offer a tasty alternative to plain water, which makes it easier to drink in larger amounts.
Flavor can be added naturally by infusing fruit and vegetables into tap or bottled water, or you could purchase artificially flavored waters in most stores.
Often, flavored waters contain added sugar or artificial sweeteners. Varieties with sugar can lead to weight gain and have a negative effect on those with diabetes.
What’s more, some people may react negatively to artificial sweeteners.
