The trend of adding various flavor packets to water is causing some concern among health experts.
While these sugar-free flavor packets have been around for a while, a new trend has emerged on social media where people are adding multiple packets of different flavors to their water, a trend known as “Water Tasting.” While some people are enjoying the new flavors, others are concerned that this defeats the purpose of drinking water altogether.
To get to the bottom of this trend, a medical expert was consulted to determine if this practice is safe and beneficial.
According to Dr.
Sujatha Reddy, adding artificial sweeteners or sugar to water, or mixing different flavor packets together, should be safe.
However, it’s important to check the ingredients and opt for natural options when possible.
While this trend may add some flavor to your water, it’s important to remember that the primary purpose of drinking water is to hydrate your body.
So, while adding a flavor packet or two may be harmless, be mindful of what you’re adding and why.
