100% Sweetened by Mother Earth™ means no artificial ingredients or high-glycemic sugars. It also means you’re drinking the pure essence of the maple tree. Maple comes to us like nothing else on earth. Each spring, from thousands of tiny rootlets deep in the forest soil, the tree absorbs minerals like zinc, calcium, manganese, potassium, and riboflavin, and creates 54 antioxidants along the way. And after they tap it into their Craft Sparkling Beverages, they pass the benefits on to you.
