Aloe Vera Lemondae by RAW PresseryAs we fight stress, tiredness and other travel issues, juices are one way of bringing some nourishment back into our lives. While mothers and grandmothers had the luxury of fresh and ripe fruits squeezed into a glass, we are in rush and there these bottled ones help. RAW Pressery’s latest addition to its range–Aloe Vera Lemonade—is a healthy one.

The cool aloe vera is blended with sweet and sour lemonade, which makes it tasty and refreshing. As per the company’s concept note, ‘aloe helps control blood sugar levels, boosting the immune system and treating digestive issues’. Not going deeper into this, I would certainly vouch for the taste and the freshness. The company lives up to its promise of 100% natural. There are no added preservatives. It does help when you are extremely tired and sweaty, helping you recover in a few minutes. Aloe vera and lemon are packed with nutrients, after all.

It does have an expiry date though, so do check that when you buy it. The plastic of the bottle is also good quality and it’s best to follow the instructions on storage if you don’t plan on consuming it immediately. Price: Rs 60 for a 250ml bottle

Why I liked it: Easy to carry, can be stored for 24 days in a fridge, easy to consume on the go, refreshing and not sweet and sticky like the other canned juices.

Products are available across Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Gurugram, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chennai, Chandigarh and Kochi. The brand retails through Foodhall, Godrej Nature’s Basket, Reliance Retail, Dee Mart, Aditya Birla Retail; hotels like Hyatt and Marriott; airlines like Vistara, Jet Airways and Air Asia; leading coffee chains like Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Costa Coffee and online stores like BigBasket, HolaChef and Zomato.
