What are Zevia fans saying?
“As a former habitual diet soda drinker, I had a very hard time finding a cola flavored soda that could be considered good for you – until I found Zevia. Zevia’s cola is GREAT! It truly hits the spot. Hands down, it’s better than Diet Coke or Pepsi. And for all of you root beer fans, the Ginger Root Beer is phenomenal. You can’t go wrong with either.” -Keri
“The grape is my fave – it just screams classic! I love how it brings back memories and tastes great!” -Kendy
“I have 2 favorites Black Cherry and Lemon Lime twist! When I thought there wasn’t a soda I could enjoy. I found Zevia! I am 100% in love with Zevia and I can drink it without getting sick! Thank you SOO MUCH for making AWESOME soda!” -Dawn
“Black Cherry, it tastes amazing like the unhealthy versions, yet its without the guilt or added weight.” -William
“I can’t pick just one! I am in love with Zevia Ginger Root Beer and Cream Soda! The Cream Soda is so smooth and the Ginger Root Beer has an amazing zing to it. Even if you asked my kids, they would all say something different because we love them all!” -Rhonda
“My absolute favorite is Dr. Zevia. I had to give up Dr. P. years ago because it hurt my stomach. I tasted Dr. Zevia & fell in love. It has an even better taste than Dr. P.!!! More flavor & no guilt & no nasty ingredients!” -Bev
“I have great memories of the going to the local drive-in root beer place for the best root beer floats… and now, I can have fantastic root beer flavor without all those additives I want to avoid! Thank you Zevia for all the flavors, but especially Ginger Root Beer!” -Lori
“Zevia Ginger Ale is so refreshing and delicious! It’s by far the best Ginger Ale on the market! The natural ginger adds a healthy kick, a perfect pair with my vegan lunch!” -Jamie
Q: What is Zevia?
A: Soda. Pretty plain and simply, Zevia is soda but better. Zevia was created with the miracle ingredient, stevia, which makes it all natural and zero calories. Never any sugar or artificial sweeteners mean it’s a healthier soda for you and those that you love.
Q: What is stevia?
A: A miracle plant. We think so anyway. Stevia is a little green plant from the sunflower family and originally native to South America. The stevia leaf is up to 300x sweeter than sugar but has no caloric value or effect on blood sugar levels. Super safe? Yes. Sweet? Yes. Worthy of a trophy? We think so.
Q: What is natural?
A: In our opinion, natural means nothing fake, phony or artificial. No artificial sweeteners, colors, junk. Only the good soda stuff. None of the bad. We use only the best ingredients to make our beverages. So you can drink this diet soda knowing it’s been made with love and care.
Q: What is Erythritol?
A: Erythritol is one of those ingredients that we love but shouldn’t judge by its overly scientific sounding name. Erythritol is a natural component of fruits and vegetables. It is called a sugar alcohol, even though it is neither sugar nor alcohol. It is removed from fruits and vegetables through a natural fermentation process, much like that of yogurt. It has absolutely no calories and no effect on blood sugar. Super safe? You betcha! In fact, unlike its sugar alcohol cousins, Xylitol and Sorbitol, Erythritol is not known to cause digestive issues.
Q: Does Zevia contain GMOs?
A: Nope. We are thrilled to say that all Zevia ingredients are Non-GMO.
Q: Is Zevia Kosher?
A: We are proud to say that all Zevia products are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.
Q: Do the Zevia cans contain BPA?
A: The FDA approved liner in our cans contains a trace amount of bisphenol A. But what does that mean? That level is 2,000 times lower than the FDA acceptable level. Also, experts say bisphenol A is released at high temperatures. Unlike canned vegetables, for example, our production process does not involve heat.
Q: Do your sodas contain caffeine?
A: We all need a little boost, now don’t we? We chose to make 3 of our delicious flavors, the ones that you would most expect, with caffeine. Zevia Cola, Dr. Zevia and Mountain Zevia all contain caffeine naturally derived from coffee.
Cola – 45mg / 12oz can
Dr. Zevia – 42mg / 12oz can
Mountain Zevia – 55mg / 12oz can
Q: Do your sodas contain sodium?
A: We love a salty snack, but try hard to keep the sodium down on our sodas. In fact, all Zevia flavors qualify as zero or very low sodium products. A better diet soda? We think so.
Q: Why aluminum cans? Why not glass or plastic bottles?
A: Great question! We are always considering packaging options for our personal safety and health and that of our environment. When researching containers we concluded that while it was less expensive to manufacture in plastic bottles, the recycling rate was considerably lower than that of aluminum cans. Did you know aluminum cans are over 2x more likely to get recycled? Fascinating, we know!
Despite promotion of plastic recycling programs, plastic production has outpaced actual recycling by five times over the past decade and we knew we didn’t want to add to that. Glass bottles as well are difficult to recycle in many major cities and create a higher carbon footprint with the added weight of glass. Aluminum is to date our best option and while we feel comfortable with this information now, we promise that we will continue to explore packaging options and will always choose to do right by our customer and our planet.
Q: Is Zevia Gluten Free?
A: In short, yes! We take great care in choosing ingredients that are the healthiest for all of our consumers, especially those who have special diets.
Q: Does Zevia have MSG?
A: Zevia is always considering ingredients that are safe for personal safety and health and that of our environments. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a naturally occurring non-essential amino acid, and is commonly used as a flavor enhancer. We do not use monosodium glutamate in the production of any of our sodas. And our customers think our sodas are amazing already.
