Our expert says:
The Woolies Sparkling Spring Water seems to have a low energy content - a 300 ml glass will provide 210 kJ which equals 3,3% of your daily energy intake when you are on a slimming diet and ingesting 6300 kJ per day. According to the SA Food Tables standard carbonated beverages like coke contain approx. 167 kJ per 100 ml thus for every 100 ml of the Sparkling Spring Water you drink instead of 100 ml of coke you 'save' approx. 100 kJ. Just keep in mind that if you start drinking litres of this Sparkling Spring water that you will also push up your energy intake - 1 litre contains 700 kJ which could make quite a difference to your energy intake. If you can't stick to only 1 glass a day, consider drinking Coke Light that is sweetened artificially and contains practically no energy.
