    Benefits on the bottle are not always in the drink

    The functional drink trend is growing rapidly with new products continually hitting the market (Neuro Drinks, RDA Organic juices), however companies touting the benefits of tea in new innovative drinks might be "misleading" consumers.

    Labeling is tough on just about any product...and I don't disagree with what your stating...

    I feel as though the FDA is more interested in pharmaceuticals than the "food part" of Food & Drug Association...

    A lot of food labelling is misleading. Take 'Vitamin Water'. You'd think it's healthy until you read the tiny print: listed in the ingredients is HFCS (high fructose corn syrup)--the worst sugar in the world. You can even find HFCS in food staples you don't expect it to be, like bread and in a lot of cereals aimed at kids. Even 'healthy' food can have a lot of added sugar, e.g. cereal bars labelled low-fat.
