Support Claims With Science Not Magic, Beverage Owners Warned

A ‘merit less publicity stunt’ is how Beverages Partners Worldwide describes a lawsuit from CSPI -Center for Science in the Public Interest a non-profit consumer product// watchdog, challenging the claims of their new drink.

"The accumulated body of scientific research shows that a combination of caffeine and green tea extract high in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) invigorates metabolism to gently increase energy use," Nestle researcher Dr. Hilary Green said in the Beverage Partners Worldwide statement.

Yet CSPI is not impressed.

The CSPI's litigation unit was set up in 2004 with the aim of curbing deceptive labeling, marketing campaigns or other practices that potentially harm consumers' health.

In addition Richard Blumenthal the Attorney General for Connecticut has given a week to the company, which is an amalgamation of Coca-Cola and Nestle to produce scientific proof that supports these claims or else be sued.

Enviga is comprised of carbonated water, calcium, concentrated green tea extract, so-called "natural flavors", caffeine, phosphoric acid, and the artificial sweeteners aspartame and acesulfame potassium.

Claims of Enviga stem from a 72 hour- study carried out on normal weight individuals who were given drinks containing amounts of caffeine and EGCG equivalent to 3 cans of Enviga. The participants expended more energy and burned 106 calories accordingly.
