Now I certainly enjoy a glass of something nice in the evenings, white wine is my usual choice. However in the past 4 years I’ve been pregnant or breastfeeding for 3.5 years and trying to get pregnant for the bit in between. That’s basically 4 years of not drinking very much wine and drinking a lot of water and tea. At times you just need a decent non-alcoholic grown up drink.
Lots of the non-alcoholic drinks I’ve tried are too sweet for my palate. Recently I was asked to work with Koji as a dietitian. I’m always slightly sceptical about new products until I get a chance to try them out and this was no different.
Koji is a sparkling fruit infusion, which is basically carbonated water with fruit extracts, natural flavours and a teeny bit of fructose. It is low in sugar when compared to other similar drinks, containing 3.3g sugars per 100ml or 1 tsp per 150ml glass. There are 3 flavours: Lemon and Ginger, Mandarin and Cranberry and Elderflower and Lime. My favourite is the Mandarin and Cranberry which looks like a glass of Rose wine.
What I like about these drinks is they are grown up enough to have instead of a glass of wine but don’t have lots of “nasties” added into them. Yes there is some added sugar but it’s not too much.
My verdict – Water will always be the best option but a low sugar grown up drink like this is nice to have around for those times you need something extra.
