Chilli-Based Energy Drink


Swedish drinks company Caliente has launched a line of natural energy juice drinks featuring chilli extract, which provides a robust energy boost. Chilli is also known to provide antioxidant vitamins such as A and C and is said to lower blood-sugar levels. 

The new organic line is made from natural ingredients and free from artificial additives and preservatives. It is available in two flavour combinations; lime ginger, chilli and cranberry, and pomegranate and chilli.

While traditional energy drinks continue to retain a firm fan base, new formats that encompass clean, green and hard-hitting ingredients are resonating with consumers searching for products that align with their health and wellbeing goals.
