Review: Orange

(Last Updated: Nov 22, 2004 at 2:00 PM)
Flu & Cold Defense Orange offers 350% of the Reference Daily Intake of Vitamin C and 90% of Zinc. In addition, the beverage contains pectin which soothes the throat. This is a sweet-tasting beverage with a fairly natural orange flavor. The packaging is attractive, and even features a couple of medical-looking crosses on the front. Zinc can be tough to include in formulations without it imparting a metallic taste. We don't taste even a hint of Zinc in this beverage, although we question why Brain Twist couldn't go the extra yard and get 100% of the RDI in there. Without commenting on the clinical efficacy of this soft drink, we can say that it is pleasant to drink and it does make one feel a bit safer.
