We’re not the type to endure the Marathon Des Sables, fast twice a week or purge our bodies on a detox break. Nor do we want to dine at the golden arches, glug on spoonsful of sugar or dunk a donut in our morning coffee.
For us, life is about making better choices that are easy to stick with. And when it comes to cordials, there are three differences that make Elderbrook a better-for-you choice compared to others you might find in a supermarket.
No added water.
We think it’s a little odd to use water as an ingredient in bottles of cordials, so we don’t do it. When you buy a bottle of Elderbrook, our promise to you is that you’re buying nothing but ingredients. No added water, ever.
No refined sugar.
We believe when it comes to soft drinks, we should all be cutting down the refined sugar without upping the artificial ingredients. We use coconut nectar rather than white granules to sweeten our drinks. It contains naturally occurring sugar and helpful things like vitamin C and minerals. We add a little stevia leaf too that helps keep our drinks naturally sweet. What this all means is that if you swapped out a daily glass of regular supermarket cordial for Elderbrook, you’d drink 2.3KG less of sugar each year.
The fact is, some ingredients have more about them than the rest and we put some in our drinks. There’s only a small amount in each bottle so we can’t promise everlasting youth, waves of energy or sprouting wings but we’re the nutritional heavy weights of cordials. We also hope that knowing the difference between a mulberry and maca means you’ll start looking out for a few better-for-you ingredients to add to your meals (or drinks).
