Being diagnosed with coeliac disease in 2000 was a game changer. The transition from eating whatever I liked to checking each ingredient with a microscope was overwhelming. I used to walk around supermarket shelves examining the labels on all processed and packaged foods, and I carried a little book that deciphered things like 'emulsifier 420' and whether they contained gluten or not. I was blown away by the vast number of chemicals additives that are put into what we eat.
Fast forward to a bright warm autumn day in 2010 when my sister (after taking a swig of a diet drink) turns to me and asks "Why do all the low sugar/diet drinks contain aspartame and other yukky chemicals so the label looks like something out of a chemistry lab? Why can't there just be something that looks good, tastes good and is nourishing?" A light bulb flashed and Puritea was born!
Puritea is brewed from 100% organic teas (not tea powder like the rest). The antioxidants in Puritea will help nourish your body. Each bottle contains under 1 1/2 teaspoons of organic raw sugar and other natural sweeteners. Puritea is preservative and colour free so there are no nasty chemical surprises waiting for you. What you see on the bottle is what you get so anyone can enjoy it (and best of all it tastes good to boot)!
