TheDailyMeal.com: Misleading Beverage Labels

1 of 12

“All Natural” Arizona Teas

All of those "natural" claims on the Arizona tea cans really put the company in hot water, when a class-action lawsuit was filed against the beverage-maker for its "natural" labels — and its use of high-fructose corn syrup and citric acid. But there’s still no real resolution as to whether the Arizona beverages are in fact natural. The three-year-old class-action lawsuit against Arizona Beverages was recently thrown out; as one attorney explained to Food Navigator, "The judge basically said that just because something is processed, doesn’t mean it isn’t ‘natural." Of course, scores of other experts would argue that high-fructose corn syrup is in fact artificial, despite its chemical similarities to table sugar. So those "natural" claims on the back of the giant Arizona teas may stick around a while longer — but that doesn’t mean you should trust them.
