Summary

Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling water is a boon for weight-watchers and fitness enthusiasts. These are low in calories as they contain no added sugar. The refreshing fizz was one of our favorite features. As indicated by the ratings, Green Apple was our favorite.

Carbonated beverages pair like a dream with everything from burgers and pizzas to butter chicken and biryani. 

More often than not, these fizzy drinks are loaded with insane amounts of sugar and calories. That’s where low-calorie/zero-calorie beverages save the day. Paper Boat, one of India’s most innovative beverage brands, recently launched their Zero Sugar Sparkling water. We reviewed three variants- Peach, Green Apple, and Cumin for our Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling water review, and here’s what we think. 

Can you guess which variant was our favorite? 

Here’s a quick look at Mishry ratings for each variant.

Our Review Factors

What were we looking for in Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling water?

In addition to scanning the ingredient list to check the ‘zero sugar’ claim, we gauged the flavor, and whether or not this is as refreshing as regular carbonated beverages. 

1. Flavor

Green apple, peach, and cumin are classic flavors. These ingredients have a bold and unique taste. 

Did Paper Boat’s beverage replicate these flavor profiles efficiently? What about the sweetness? Was it natural or artificial?

2. Fizz

The fizzy, crisp mouthfeel of carbonated beverages contributes greatly to how refreshing it feels. 

Does the fizz subside as the beverage is poured or is it retained for a few minutes?

3. Nutrition Quotient 

Here we scanned the ingredient list to check the ‘zero sweetener’ claim. We also compared the nutrition values of Paper Boat with other low-calorie beverages. 

4. Other Parameters 

The price, packaging, shelf life, and other non-tasting parameters were recorded here. 

Paper Boat Sparkling Water Flavours – Detailed Review

The following section discusses our experience and findings about Paper Boat Sparkling Water. 

1. Green Apple

Price & Packaging

This variant was packed similarly. A 600 ml bottle is priced at Rs 60/- with a six-month shelf life. 

Main Ingredients

Water, erythritol, carbon dioxide, flavors (nature-identical and natural), acidity regulator (malic acid), preservative (sodium benzoate), sweetener (sucralose), and food colors (INS 102 and INS 133).

This also contains added green apple flavor. 

The brand claims this range has ‘no added sugar. None. At. All.’ And this is true.

Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling Water has no added sugar. The ingredient list mentions that the beverage contains an admixture of erythritol and sucralose. 

But as per FSSAI, this admixture is not considered as added sugar as sucralose is calorie-free. Sucralose is chemically processed but erythritol, on the other hand, is a naturally occurring sugar substitute.

Taste & Consistency

Soda (carbon dioxide) is savored for its refreshing fizz. This crisp mouthfeel was experienced here. Moreover, the fizz was retained for almost 30 minutes even after the beverage was poured in a glass. Thumbs up on that.

Taste-wise, this had a balanced sweetness that we quite liked. The desirable sourness of green apples was tasted. The flavor of the fruit is spot-on. 

Taste- 4/5
Aroma- 3.5/5
Fizz- 3.5/5
Nutrition- 3/5
  • This featured an authentic green apple flavor. 
  • The fizz was retained for over 30 minutes.

Looking for a refreshing beverage minus the calories? May we suggest Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling Water in Green Apple?

2. Peach

Price & Packaging

A 600 ml bottle is priced at Rs 60/-. It has a shelf life of six months. 

The bottle is see-through with a green reclosable lid. The flavor variant and graphics of ingredients are on the front and the nutrition label and list of ingredients is printed on the back. 

Main Ingredients

Water, erythritol, carbon dioxide (INS 290), peach juice concentrate (0.8%), apple juice concentrate (0.7%), flavors (nature-identical and natural), acidity regulator (citric acid), class II preservative (sodium benzoate), sweetener (sucralose), and synthetic food colors (INS 124 and INS 110).

The list also mentions that this beverage has reconstituted 10% peach-apple fruit juice. 

We compared Paper Boat Zero Sugar Sparkling water to other aerated beverages (100 ml) and found that

Peach had a synthetic sweetness.

Taste & Consistency

The fizz was crisp and the sips were refreshing. However, the flavors were average. This variant had a desirable flavor of the fruit but was more on the sweeter side. Moreover, we could taste the artificial sweetness right towards the end of the sip which brought down the experience. 

Taste- 3/5
Aroma- 3.5/5
Fizz- 3.5/5
Nutrition- 3/5
  • This is priced economically.
  • It is a low-calorie alternative to sugar-loaded beverages.
  • The fizz was refreshing.
  • There was an artificial aftertaste.

3. Cumin

Price & Packaging

The price and packaging are similar to other from the range. This has a six-month shelf life. 

Main Ingredients

Water, erythritol, carbon dioxide (INS 290), iodized salt, acidity regulator (citric acid), flavors (nature-identical and natural), antioxidant (ascorbic acid), preservative (sodium benzoate), food color (INS 150 d), and sweetener (sucralose).

Ascorbic acid is a form of vitamin C naturally found in food. It is known to taste sour/tarty due to its acidic property.

Cumin was good in terms of flavor, not fizz.

Taste & Consistency

The fizz was tested in two parts. When poured in the glass, the fizz was not retained as long as the other variants. However, when the bottle was capped, it remained fizzy.

In terms of flavor, the saltiness was dominant. It had a mild hint of sweetness, but with a bold warmth of ‘roasted’ cumin seeds. 

Taste- 3/5
Aroma- 3.5/5
Fizz- 3/5
Nutrition- 3/5
  • This is priced decently.
  • The packaging is quite good.
  • It had a bold flavor of cumin seeds.
