Um ... no it doesn't. It does have monopotassium phosphate. That's an electrolyte (supposedly a good thing) and it is in Gatorade as well.

however ... Vitamin Water was bought out by the Coca Cola company. And it does have lots of the pleasant sounding "crystalline fructose" :-)

You could just order one of the salad bowl thingies. It's all the fixins, just in a bowl. Then pull out your own bread at the table.

Vitamin Water – The Biggest Scam

Plenty of consumers are falling for it - a new “vitamin enriched” brand of water seems to be hitting the shelves every day.

Let’s take a good look at the first three ingredients of one of the most popular ones, Glaceau Vitamin Water -which was bought by the Coca Cola Company, by the way:

* Distilled, deionized, and/or reverse osmosis water: this is water that has had any and all natural minerals removed from it, and can create a highly acidic condition in your body, leading to severe mineral deficiencies, and even heartbeat irregularities2. The addition of minerals and vitamins of inferior quality does not counter-effect the damage.

* Crystalline Fructose: This is just another name for high-fructose corn syrup, a low quality, cheap, and extremely dangerous sweetener linked to severe health issues including obesity, and fatty liver disease. A new commercial on TV has a couple lying on the grass in a park. The young woman is trying to give her young man a popsicle. He asks her if she is poisoning him. Her answer is ridiculous. Basically she cons him by saying that fructose is as good as sugar and fructose is made from corn. How bad can that be? He falls for it but please, don’t you.

* Cane Sugar: More processed sugar. Since when do you need processed sugar to get your vitamins? Not only does sugar feed cancer, viruses and the pathogenic yeast, candida,that all help quickly age and even kill you, it has many other undisputed health hazards.

In addition to these top three ingredients, Vitamin Water also lists:

* Citric Acid: Contrary to common belief, the citric acid found in so many processed foods today is not from citrus fruits at all. In fact, it’s a food additive and preservative usually produced from corn, and it can cause serious reactions in MSG sensitive people3. People with yeast infections are very sensitive to it and should absolutely avoid it. And who doesn’t have a yeast infection today?

* “Natural” Flavor: The food industry knows you like the sound of “natural” better than “artificial”. Unfortunately, whenever you see “natural flavor” on a food label it means there is some lab processing involved, which makes the distinction between “natural” and “artificial” suspect.

Natural flavors very often contain MSG. It's a very sneaky way of putting it into the product without letting the consumer know it's in there. I had heard ( I sincerely can't remember where) that someone had wrote the Vitamin water company to ask if they had MSG in their product and they said they did.

I will email them and ask if they have the free glutamic acid in the Vitamin water and get an answer directly from the source!! Even if it doesn't have it in, you are right..it's just not "good" for you!!!
