Chivita - what's chivita?
Chivita is a new brand bringing fortified beverages to the mass market. We are a small start-up based in the Northwest of England. We are a small but driven team of 3 guys who happen to love our coffee and believe in healthy living! We have already successfully launched our Latte Super Coffee and now we want to manufacture our next product to meet market demands.
Do you drink Coffee? Do you buy ready to drink coffee drinks? Well we are sure you would have seen some of these coffee drinks below and even bought some of them. With the amount of sugar in the drinks, its no wonder our daily diets quickly surpass our daily sugar allowance. At Chivita we have finally created a no added sugar latte that tastes amazing with sugar allowance to spare!
Chivita Super Coffee - Sugar Free Latte
Our new 0% added sugar Super Coffee is made up from:
- 100% Arabica coffee beans.
- Huge 23g Protein that keeps you full for longer.
- Green Tea Extracts.
- plus the added benefit of 0% added sugar!
Why 0% Sugar?
From our much loved NHS, most adults and children in the UK eat too much sugar.
The kind of sugar we eat too much of is known as the collective term "free sugars". Free sugars are any sugars added to food or drinks, or found naturally in honey, syrups and unsweetened fruit juices.
Many foods and drinks that contain added sugars can be high in energy (measured in either kilojoules/kJ or calories/kcal) and often have few other nutrients. Eating these foods too often can mean you eat more calories than you need, which can lead to weight gain, obesity and tooth decay.
Added sugars are found in foods such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, chocolate, and some fizzy drinks and juice drinks – these are the sugary foods we should cut down on. For example, a can of cola can have as much as 9 cubes of added sugar.
Sugars also occur naturally in foods such as fresh fruit and milk, but we don't need to cut down on these types of sugars.
