Infused Water FAQ
What is Zpirit Infuzed Water?
Through a proprietary steeping process using real herbs and fruit, Zpirit is naturally infused with flavors from fruit pieces and herbs. The flavors are slowly diffused into the water, giving it a light and refreshing taste.
How many calories and how much sugar is in each 300mL bottle?
With only 5 grams of sugar, Zpirit Infuzed Water contains 30 calories per bottle. 2 grams of natural sugar comes from the fruit pieces themselves while the rest comes from organic cane juice.
Why are we using glass bottles?
Glass bottles are used instead of plastic as they are more recyclable and help maintain the flavor profile over time, without using preservatives.
How are the fruit pieces preserved?
During the bottling process, the fruit pieces are pasteurized through a proprietary process – similar to milk pasteurization.
Where is the water sourced from?
The water is sourced from the North American Great Lakes and purified through a multi- stage filtration system.
Where is Zpirit Infuzed Water made?
Zpirit Infuzed Water is produced in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada.
What are the ingredients?
Zpirit Infuzed Water has only eight natural ingredients: filtered water Infused with an herb, fruit pieces, organic cane juice, natural flavor, citric acid, vitamin C, stevia leaf extract.
Are Zpirit Infuzed Waters shelf-stable?
Yes, Zpirit does not need to be refrigerated even though they taste best when chilled. The shelf -life is 12 months from the production date. Each bottle has a best-before date printed on it and the product should be consumed before the date indicated.
What is the inspiration behind the creation of Zpirit Infuzed Water?
Like you, we were frustrated by having to constantly choose between overly sweetened drinks when we wanted natural, healthy hydration that tastes great. Inspired by a European tradition to preserve fruit throughout the winter, we created a unique beverage low in sugar and calories: Zpirit Infuzed Water! #InspiredHydration
