Izze esque is a line of all-natural sodas containing 50 calories per bottle, compared to 120 calories for the standard Izze line. While the drink may not be calorie-free, it does offer enough natural sweetness to satisfy a craving without going overboard. The ingredients are pretty transparent, but you should be aware of these few.
- 25 percent juice – Izze sweetens its sodas with juice concentrates, but no added sugars.
- Citric acid — Used as a preservative and for its tangy flavor, citric acid is derived from citrus fruits, and, like phosphoric acid in generic sodas, citric acid does cause tooth erosion.
- Natural flavor — In this product, "natural flavoring" is the overarching, ambiguous term (used so commonly in processed foods); it's an oil or essence of a fruit or fruit juice used purely for flavor.
