What is stevia?

A miraculous plant- that's what we think. Stevia is a small green plant from the sunflower family that originates from South America. Stevia leaf is 200 times sweeter than sugar, but it has no caloric value and it does not raise blood sugar. Natural and calorie-free? That's right! A more sensible sweetener? And how. Worthy of a trophy? That's what we believe. For more information on stevia, click here.

What is Zevia sweetened with?

Zevia products are sweetened entirely with stevia and we are proud of that.

What does “natural” mean?

In our view, “natural” means without anything fake or artificial. No artificial flavours or colors. Only good things, and none of the bad ones. To make our drinks, we only use the best ingredients. This way you can drink any Zevia drink knowing that it was made with love and care.

How many flavours do you offer?

Zevia started out with just a few flavours of smarter soft drink choices. We have now evolved into a thriving brand and are pleased to offer ten great tasting soda flavours, four energy flavours, four Organic Tea flavours and two Mixers. Visit our product page to see all the delicious flavours we offer! Stay tuned... You never know what surprise we may have in store for you.

Do Zevia products contain caffeine?

In Canada, we currently offer eleven caffeine-free beverages. Only two of our refreshing soft drinks contains caffeine: our cola contains 45 mg/12 oz to be exact and Dr. Zevia contains 42 mg/12 oz. Our Energy flavours contain 120mg/12oz and our Organic Teas contain 45mg/12oz.

Do your drinks contain sodium?

We love salty treats, but we strive to keep sodium to a minimum. In fact, no Zevia drink contains sodium.

Do your drinks contain phosphoric acid?

None whatsoever! Zevia does not use any phosphoric acid, making it an ideal choice for anyone who is managing their phosphorus intake due to medical issues, such as dialysis treatments. Of course, you should always consult a doctor when making dietary decisions. If you need more specific information on our calcium or potassium levels, please email us at zevia@zevia.com .

Are Zevia beverages non-GMO?

NOPE! Zevia products are certified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project, the strictest non-GMO standard offered.

Are Zevia beverages certified Kosher?

Yes! We are proud to say that all Zevia products are Certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.

Are Zevia products vegan?

Yes! We take great care in choosing ingredients that are used in our products. We are self-declared Vegan and all of our ingredients are 100% Vegan.

Are Zevia products gluten free?

Yes! All Zevia products are certified gluten free. We are very careful to choose ingredients that are the healthiest for our customers, especially those who follow special diets.

What are your natural flavours made of?

You could say it's the “secret ingredient,”but don't worry, there's nothing to be afraid of! You may have noticed that Zevia still has “natural flavor” listed in the ingredient chart. For proprietary reasons, we cannot list all the delicious flavours that we put in our drinks. However, if there is a particular ingredient that you wish to avoid, we will be happy to confirm whether or not these soft drinks are safe for you. 

Do Zevia products contain MSG?

Absolutely not! Although monosodium glutamate (MSG) is found naturally in certain non-essential amino acids and is commonly used as a flavor enhancer in certain foods, we do not use any MSG in our beverages.

What is the expiration date? How can I read the code?

Although Zevia beverages do not have a true "expiration date," they taste best within the first year of production. In the code, the first letter represents the month of canning or bottling. A corresponds to January, B to February, C to March and so on. (We omitted the letter "I" because it looks like a 1 or an L). The next number is a two-digit number, such as "16" or "17", which indicates the year: 2016, 2017, etc. The next two numbers correspond to the day of the month. The next letter, or the next two, can be an “N” or an “A” and are classified as secret. Just kidding! In fact, it's a kind of secret code that helps us know exactly where each can was made. The last pair of numbers indicates the time of day.

I am thirsty! Where can I buy a Zevia product?

Zevia products are available at major retailers across the United States and Canada, including Whole Foods, Safeway, Kroger, Super Target, and tons of natural grocers and supermarkets. To find a retailer near you, take a look at our store locator. You can also get our products through Amazon and Low Carb Grocery.

I only spotted a few flavours on the shelf. Why can't I find them all?

Although Zevia products come in a variety of refreshing flavours, not all of them are found at every retailer. Disappointing, right? But wait a moment, you have the power! If you want more flavor, you might be surprised at what you can do. Take a look at the request form at the bottom of the store locator page. Sometimes your store manager just needs a little guidance from smarter drink lovers like you.
