Sparkling Ice Ingredients

Here’s a list of ingredients you can find in most of their products: carbonated water, juice concentrate, malic acid, natural flavors, vegetable juice (for color), potassium benzoate (to ensure freshness), gum arabic, green tea extract, retinol (vitamin a), niacinamide (vitamin b3), biotin, cyanocobalamin (vitamin b12), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin b6), calcium pantothenate (vitamin b5), cholecalciferol (vitamin d3), and sucralose.

Nutrition Facts

There are three (3) Sparkling Ice varieties being sold in the market. The Classics, +Caffeine and those under the New product line which are continuously being innovated as this moves forward.

In Sparkling Ice’s earlier years in the market, consumers can read on the label that it has zero calories.

However, recently in January 2020, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) new Nutrition Facts Panel labeling requirements took effect. One of the differences was that the serving sizes of products area must be updated to more accurately reflect the amount people actually drink (or eat) in a sitting.

In accordance with that, one bottle of Sparkling Ice is now labeled as 1 serving rather than what was previously indicated as 2. The calories shown reflect the larger serving size. Before 2020, Sparkling Ice rounded down to zero calories based on an 8-ounce serving, designated previously also by the FDA. 

Therefore, it can now be seen in the package labeling that Sparkling Ice has 5 calories per serving. What is the source of calories? It comes from the acid, juice content and colors from natural sources.

Sparkling Ice does not contain sugar, instead being sweetened by sucralose. Sucralose is approximately 600x sweeter than cane sugar. It is also under the category of an artificial sweetener.
