Iced tea is generally considered a healthy beverage choice, yet bottled commercial versions can contain more sugar than a can of Coke! To help you make healthier beverage decisions, review some of the worst iced tea offenders to avoid as part of your quick weight loss regimen with Phentermine 37.5mg.
AriZona Blueberry White Tea
A 20-ounce bottle of this tea contains a whopping 45 grams of sugar despite containing “the goodness of blueberries, pears, and a dash of honey.” The blueberries and pears both come from concentrate.
“AriZona’s Blueberry White Tea also claims to be full of healthy vitamins and antioxidants, but this one also has more sugar than a can of Coke,” says Mary Sabat MS, RDN, LD.
Snapple Peach Tea
One of Snapple’s most popular offerings, the Peach Tea is nevertheless a sugar bomb containing 40 grams of sugar per 16-ounce bottle.
“Snapple offers a range of flavored iced teas that are often perceived as a healthier alternative to soda,” says Sabat. “However, some of their varieties, such as the Peach Tea and Lemon Tea flavors, have been found to contain more sugar than a can of Coke.”
Gold Peak California Raspberry Tea
A 18.5-ounce bottle of this raspberry tea features 48 grams of sugar.
“They [Gold Leaf] offer a range of iced teas, including sweetened and unsweetened options, but their sweetened varieties can have an extremely high sugar content, making it essential to read the labels and choose wisely,” says Meaghan Greenwood, RD.
Pure Leaf Raspberry Sweet Tea
This sweet tea contains 46 grams of sugar per 18.5-ounce bottle.
“Pure Leaf is another popular brand of bottled iced tea that offers a wide range of flavors, and while they have unsweetened and lightly sweetened options, their sweetened varieties, such as the Raspberry Sweet Tea, pack in a higher sugar dose than a Coke,” notes Sabat.
