National Beverage Corp., makers of Shasta, introduced a genuine soft-drink alternative (SDA), which it took four years to develop.

Shasta duplicated its flavors that have appealed to loyal consumers for more than 125 years with a SDA that contains no calories, sodium, or sweeteners. The Shasta Sparkling beverage describes its contents as “100% all-natural ingredients, a simple formula for your life . . . Sparkling Water, Naturally Essenced.”

“This is another historic first in the life of Shasta Beverages!” exclaimed Nick A. Caporella, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Shasta (SDA) Sparkling is redefining and revolutionizing how consumers have modified their tastes for a healthier, better-for-you alternative to sweetened soft drinks.”
