How do you get Fruit Flavors into the Water Without Adding Sugar?

Daniel Oh -

The details depend upon the specific flavors, but here's an overview: First, individual essences and extracts are obtained from fruits, vegetables, and other vegetarian sources (for example spices), using a variety of techniques to separate the flavors we want from the sugar, color, pulp and other components that we don't want. Techniques used involve various combinations of pressing, heating, cooling, filtering, and dissolving.

We then combine a variety of essences and extracts together according to our unique recipes. this mixture of flavors is blended with extremely pure water at local bottlers around the country, and the resulting "essence water" is then pasteurized, or in the case of Hint Sparkling products, infused with CO2.
