Rating Diet Soda products
Drinks are organized into the following sub-categories: juices, smoothies, carbonated beverages, energy drinks, sports drinks, and bottled water.
GoodGuide's drink ratings are based on the same methodology used to rate food products, including:
- The nutritional value of a drink, as characterized by a standard method of nutrient assessment called the “Ratio of Recommended to Restricted Nutrients” (RRR);
- Indicators of whether or not levels of specific nutrients exceed public health guidelines;
- The presence of potentially hazardous additives such as certain food colors; and
- Indicators of various production practices that influence the quality of a food product.
