PepsiCo was sued for making customers believe that their Naked Juices contains high-value ingredients, such as kale. The truth is that the main ingredient is a cheaper and less healthy apple juice. The complaint was filed on Tuesday in New York federal court. It seems that PepsiCo also lied about the thing that the drink has no sugar added because it has as much sugar as Pepsi.
While PepsiCo says that the lawsuit has no sense and the is nothing wrong about Naked Juices, the Center for Science in the Public Interests thinks something else. The group believes that people are paying too much for unhealthy products, even though PepsiCo claims that its product has benefits on people’s health.
For example, one of the most popular Naked Juices is Kale Blazer. If a consumer wants to but it, he is supposed to have a mix of cucumber, spinach, celery and ginger. However, according to the label, kare is only the second listed ingredient. People will find more apple juice and orange juice as the main ingredients.
There are some Naked Juices which seem to be more dangerous than Pepsi. They contain up to 61 grams of sugar, while the famous drink has 41 grams. According to the lawsuit, the company wants its consumers to think that they are buying healthy products, even though this is not true.
The organization that sued PepsiCo wants all the shoppers around the country to know what they are consuming. Moreover, the lawsuit involves also some damages.
This is not the first time when people do not agree that Naked Juices are the best choice if you want to have a healthy diet. In 2013, PepsiCo agreed to stop calling these products all natural, after a settlement of 9 million dollars.
There have always been arguments regarding natural juices. There are many companies that claim to have healthy products, but they are still using harmful ingredients. Pepsi Co is one of the most popular companies in the world, with millions of people who buy their products every year.
Even though these kind of drinks are tasty, they are not having any benefits for our health. If you want to avoid heart diseases or obesity, the best thing you can do is stop consuming them and focus on a healthy diet.
