Move over, kombucha; there’s a new guilt-free pleasure in town! It’s a soda that doesn’t just taste great, but is good for you. Toronto-based company Crazy D’s Soda Labs recently launched Prebiotic Craft Soda ($5).
The first of its kind, this soda is sweetened with yacón root and contains no added sugar, caffeine, preservatives or artificial colours and flavours. A prebiotic, yacón root is also a natural source of fructooligosaccharides, an indigestible carb that gives a hint of sweetness without boosting blood sugar levels. That’s why Crazy D’s contains eight times less sugar than a traditional fizzy drink. crazydlabs.com
