Syfo Natural Flavors are Both Healthy and Refreshing
All of Syfo’s Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters are made with 100% purified water. The all-natural flavorings used in Syfo are derived from the oil that is selectively extracted from the peel of the fruit. There are no preservatives, artificial colors or artificial flavors used in the manufacturing of our Syfo Naturally Flavored Sparkling Waters. In addition, we support the term “natural” by using flavors that are PG (propylene glycol) free.
Propylene glycol is a derivative of natural gas and is used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food products as a humectant and as a solvent. (A humectant is a substance that absorbs moisture or helps another substance absorb moisture). Although propylene glycol has GRAS status with the FDA (meaning it is Generally Recognized As Safe), we do not allow it in our flavorings. Instead we opt for vegetable based glycerin which is a natural humectant and naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria.
Unlike many sodas, we don’t use brominated vegetable oil (BVO) as part of our flavorings. BVO is a vegetable oil derived from soy and is used by some soda brands as an emulsifier to keep the flavoring from floating to the top of the drink. The bromine in BVO is a known endocrine disrupter and has been banned as a food ingredient throughout Europe and Japan.
Syfo is also Kosher Certified allowing us to better meet the needs of our health conscious customers, particularly those with dietary concerns.
