Snapple Facts: Snapple Green Tea

What are the Snapple facts? It depends how you look at it. There are Snapple facts printed under every cup. Flip your lid, read a factoid, and you just may learn something new.

Then, there are Snapple facts, which Snapple uses to promote its new line of Snapple Green Teas. According to the marketing materials, here is a sample of Snapple facts:

Snapple’s Green Tea is good for you. It contains real sugar and has more antioxidants than other ready-to-drink green teas. Snapple’s Green Tea contains 55mg of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) per bottle.

According to the “Snapple facts”, EGCG “is a natural antioxidant, found only in green tea, that boosts your metabolism. When you increase your metabolism, you burn calories more efficiently.”

On its website, Snapple makes a bolder claim, “More than that snappy logo on the bottle, Snapple Green Tea has the most EGCG on Earth, to help boost your metabolism.”

Wow, now I am sold! How can you go wrong with “the most EGCG on earth“? And all that “natural” sugar is really good for me, right? So can you count on Snapple to increase your metabolism?

You can count on Snapple to significantly increase your sugar intake. I bet this fact is not likely to end up in “real Snapple facts” printed under every cup. But do not take my word for it, let’s take a look at other facts which Snapple reveals on its website.

First, the fine print says that Snapple’s Green Tea contains the most EGCG only “versus other leading bottled green tea.” Second, it also says, “Studies indicate about 300mg EGCG throughout the day boosts metabolism.”

In other words, you would need to drink 5.5 bottles of Snapple’s Green Tea to match the amount of EGCG Snapple claims boosts metabolism.

Assuming, on average, each bottle contains 20g sugar and 100 calories – to attain 300 mg of EGCG from Snapple’s Green Tea – you are looking at adding 550 calories and 110g sugar to your diet on a daily basis!

As with Steaz Green Tea Soda, this product is counting on people to assume that anything with green tea or USDA Organic logo is healthy, which is not the case.
