Soft drinks: everyday myths in nutrition

When we talk about soft drinks, we refer equally to carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks, cold teas, sports drinks and energy drinks, but also to drinks such as juices and nectars. Each of these categories addresses a certain segment of consumers through a specific set of benefits that the ingredients present in their component offer.

Basic information about soft drinks
"Soft Drinks" is the generic term under which these soft drinks are reunited. Along with water, any of these drinks can provide the necessary daily fluid intake, the basic ingredient of all soft drinks being water, which represents over 90% of them.

Medical studies show that Hydration is essential for the normal functioning of many body functions, in its absence it may appear headache, fatigue, decreased concentration and coordination of movements, in children these effects being more accentuated than in adults. To maintain a normal level of hydration it is recommended to consume daily 2-3 liters of liquid, derived from both beverages and food. It is scientifically proven that a varied consumption of liquids - water, soft drinks, hot drinks (coffee, tea), dairy - helps normal hydration through a wide variety of tastes and flavors.

Representatives of the soft drink industry promote a healthy and balanced lifestyle, through moderate consumption of a variety of foods and beverages, while maintaining constant physical activity. Manufacturers offer a wide range of soft drinks and water, including low-calorie or low-calorie beverages, to meet all consumer needs. From the varied offer provided, the consumer can make a choice compatible with his own needs and lifestyle.

Here is some information that will definitely help you make the right hydration choice.

Carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks are based on fruit or plant extract, with a concentration between 0 and 24%, the difference between them consisting in the water used, either carbonated or flat. Carbonated drinks with caloric intake are a good source of energy due to the carbohydrates present in their component.

Carbohydrates have an important role in the functioning of the human body & # 8211. The brain is practically exclusively dependent on a constant intake of glucose. To function normally, an adult's brain needs daily 140 g of glucose, which represents up to half of the total dietary carbohydrates ingested. Manufacturers of soft drinks are responsible and concerned about consumer welfare. For example, in many drinks, sugar is replaced by fructose, which is the body's favorite source of carbohydrates due to its gradual absorption.

Juices are drinks that contain 100% fruit or vegetable juice, without having other ingredients added, except sometimes for some minerals and vitamins allowed for fortification purposes. The juices do not contain added sugar or other sweeteners, but only those that come naturally from the fruit. Consumption of juices provides part of the daily requirement of vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

Unlike juices, nectar (Lat. & Bdquobautura deiilor & rdquo) is a drink based on fruit or vegetable juice with a concentration between 25 and 99%, in its manufacturing process being used other additives (flavors, sweeteners).

Cold teas (ready-made) are soft drinks based on extract of different types of tea, which are known for their antioxidant effect.

Sports and energy drinks are functional soft drinks, recommended for their specific benefits.

Bsports cars are intended for people who exert intense physical effort, because they contain minerals that can compensate for salts lost through perspiration with water. The formula of these drinks has been designed to quickly compensate for the loss of fluids and mineral salts through perspiration, while providing an instant source of energy.

On the other hand, energy drinks are a category of soft drinks, with an increased content of caffeine and other energizing ingredients (taurine, guarana, gingseng). Energizing soft drinks are not among the main sources of caffeine, which is contained mainly in coffee, but also in some painkillers, for example. In addition to hydration, energy drinks are also recommended for the energizing effect (due to the sugar content) and stimulating attention and alertness (for example during prolonged driving). Returning to responsible consumption, it is not caffeine itself that is addictive, but the frequency of consumption and the amount ingested, and this is related to a balanced lifestyle.

Both nutritionists and representatives of soft drink manufacturers recommend keeping this information in mind, approaching a balanced diet, combined with constant physical activity, an attitude that allows the consumption of any of these categories of soft drinks regularly.

In this heat, when not only do we need more hydration, but we can't eat much, a lemonade recipe is more than welcome, I think. Not only does it cool and hydrate us, but it is also a tonic, a real boon. In addition, I realized that I did not post any drink recipe on this blog, the natural consequence of the fact that in my family the most beloved drink is plain water.


The lemonade recipe that we make endlessly and more recently has become my husband's specialty, is, in general, an Algerian recipe, very simple but very tasty. We all like it, but the biggest fan of this lemonade recipe is still the man of the house. This was, in fact, the reason why he wanted to prepare it with his own hand, thus recording the first recipe he made published on the blog :).

  • a mango fruit (500 g, after cleaning about 280 g remain)
  • 125 g plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 125 ml milk (or plain water)
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • ground cardamom (a teaspoon tip)

  • if you use sweetened yogurt, do not add honey or other sweetener
  • you can also use rice milk, soy, coconut milk or plain water
  • if you don't like cardamom you can replace it with cinnamon, ginger powder

    Toblerone is one of the most famous Swiss chocolates bars exist. It is well known for its long lasting aroma and insanely delicious taste. The name comes from the family name of the chocolate maker "Tobler" combined with "torrone", the Italian word for nougat. Jean Tobler chocolate products were in vogue at the end of the 19th century. Therefore, in 19 he founded with his sons "Fabrique de Chocolat Berne, Tobler & amp Cie". When his son Theodor took over in 1899, he invented a new unique chocolate: the Toblerone triangle! With its exceptional formula, the triangle chocolate bar becomes the quintessential Swiss chocolate.

    Toblerone ingredients are just pure Swiss milk, natural honey and some of the best raw materials in the world. If you are a chocolate lover, you should take a bite out of this classic Swiss chocolate.

    While the chocolate bar retains its classic taste and shape, the company continues to innovate and explore new tastes. Therefore, you will enjoy white Toblerone, dark chocolate and even crunchy coconut flavors, all in the shape of Toblerone. And for true Toblerone lovers, there is a giant Toblerone bar containing 4.5 kg of chocolate!

    Meatballs for all ages

    If I haven't convinced you so far to get a slow cooker, I won't fail with this recipe.

    Ever since I stepped into the kitchen, I can't remember exactly my age, I hated making meatballs. Besides the fact that they are not healthy fried at all, the whole house, including the & # 8222 cook & # 8221 smells awful.

    I tried the oven, of course, but the only advantage is that they are healthier, because the house still smells, as does the one who has to watch them.

    Since with this wonderful pot, in addition to saving time, slow cooker dishes are even healthier, being cooked at low temperatures for a long time.

    • 500-600 gr minced meat (I put pork leg)
    • 1 medium potato
    • 2 medium carrots
    • 3 cloves crushed garlic
    • 1 or
    • Pepper
    • Sweet and hot paprika (quickly you can omit)
    • Thyme
    • about 100 gr diced mozzarella
    • 350 ml tomato sauce (commercially passed tomatoes, version without basaconii)
    • 200 ml of bone broth
    • 3 cloves of garlic
    • Pepper
    • Bay leaf

    The minced meat is mixed with the other ingredients. Shape balls the size of an egg, then flatten and place a cube of mozzarella in the middle, clench your fist and thus form a meatball filled with mozzarella.

    Place the meatballs directly in the slow cooker bowl, and then turn on the pot for 2 hours on high, with an absorbent towel under the lid.

    After two hours, I added tomato paste, whole garlic cloves, pepper and bay leaf and left for another 1 h 30 min, also on high, without a towel.

    The gasket is up to everyone.

    I'm just telling you, these are the most delicious meatballs. If you do not have a slow cooker, they can be baked in a pot with a lid.
