Paperboat Aamras from Hector Beverages Pvt Ltd promises to take one down memory lane while sipping their drinks.
We like the fact that it does not contain preservatives and artificial colour but it does have added flavours in it.
A 100 ml pack of this product contains as much as 69 Kcal, and a total sugar content of 10 gm, which is very high and could lead to obesity and lifestyle diseases if consumed regularly.
The foodnetindia rating for this product:-
foodnetindia safety rating : 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
This product does not contain preservatives and artificial colour, which differentiates it from some of the well known beverages available in India. The high added sugar content clearly reduces its safety for most people.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating : 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The manufacturer has tried to keep the product as natural as possible, which we appreciate, but the fact that there is a high added sugar content in it we are forced to give it a lower rating.
Ingredients in Paperboat Aamras which are a concern
This food product contains 10 gm sugar per 100 ml of it. It does not specify which sugar has been used. This is important because different sugars have different metabolic effects. For example, Sucrose (Cane Sugar) is very different from Fructose (Fruit Sugar). Some foods use high fructose corn syrup which may be harmful in much lower quantities than sucrose. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to not clearly state what ingredients have been used.
Added Flavour (Nature Identical Flavouring Substances
This food product does not specify which flavours or flavouring substances have been used. The flavours should be specified as some of them have serious side effects and may not be suitable for infants, pregnant women or people who are allergic. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
By not specifying what these flavours and substances are, we are forced to consider what they are hiding and why would they be so reluctant to mention what they have used in the food product!
By this behaviour, these manufacturers expose people to possible allergens or toxins that could be avoided if consumers knew what they were.
