Lipton Zero Calorie Teas Receive NRA Innovations Award

Lipton Zero Calorie Fresh Brewed Sweet Teas have been awarded the Food & Beverage Product Innovations 2012 Award, presented by the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show.  This year, the award recognizes consumable products that deliver significant restaurant operator benefits.  

Presweetened with sucralose, the active ingredient in Splenda, the innovative range of Lipton Zero Calorie Fresh Brewed Sweet Teas delivers refreshment and convenience, along with single-step, consistent brewing. There’s no need for staff to stir in syrup or sugar, which means greater back-of-house efficiency, and consistent refreshing sweet tea taste.

Lipton Zero Calorie Fresh Brewed Sweet Teas are available in three on-trend flavors: Sweet, Southern Sweet, and Sweet Green Tea with Citrus.

The awardees have been selected by an independent panel of experts who represent a broad variety of both commercial and non-commercial segments.  Lipton Zero Calorie Fresh Brewed Sweet Teas will be showcased in the exclusive Food and Beverage Products Innovations Gallery on the exhibit floor at the 2012 National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, May 5-8 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Sweet and flavored iced teas are the #2 non-alcoholic beverage trend of the year according to the NRA Chef’s Survey: What’s Hot in 2012. Offering on-trend sweet tea varieties helps you grow profitable beverage sales with flavors that are in demand.

sucralose is made when sugar is treated with trityl chloride, acetic anhydride, hydrogen chlorine, thionyl chloride, and methanol in the presence of dimethylformamide, 4-methylmorpholine, toluene, methyl isobutyl ketone, acetic acid, benzyltriethlyammonium chloride, and sodium methoxide, making it unlike anything found in nature.No thank you. No accurate studies have been performed. Where are the long-term studies in humans? Won't happen.Sucralose was created when scientists were trying to come up with a new insecticide. mmmm sounds good, i think i'll sweeten my beverages with it. What a joke.
