Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
PRODUCT AND INGREDIENTS
What is Sparkling Water?
Simply put, sparkling water is fizzy (carbonated) water. Polka Pop
Sparkling Water is better than your usual sparkling water as it is
flavourful, refreshing & the perfect fizzy drink without the sugar,
sweeteners, preservatives, sodium or calories. It is perfect to have as
it is or mix with your favourite white spirit.
What does Polka Pop contain?
It contains natural flavour, carbonated water & a whole lotta love!
Before you ask us, natural flavours are essentially flavour oils
extracted from the natural fruit.
It can’t be true. How is Polka Pop zero calories?
As we mentioned earlier, Polka Pop is made from natural flavour extracts
and not fruit juices. Fruit juices contain sugar & calories in some
form whereas natural flavours don’t! Water is also calorie free and
therefore Polka Pop is 100% zero calories.
Isn’t Fizz harmful for me?
Well, all carbonated drinks available in India have traditionally
contained sugar, sweeteners, chemicals, calories & what not (read
toilet cleaners? :p). Therefore your association of fizz with
‘unhealthy’ was not wrong, until now.
Carbonation by itself is just gas and as is the law of nature - what
goes in, comes out. Other than that, Polka Pop contains nothing in it to
harm you. If you’d like to get a little scientific, all carbonation
really does is produce carbonic acid which is what gives a fizzy drink
that sting we all love. Our pH levels are also more neutral (see what we
did there!) at ~4.5 when compared to super acidic soft drinks (~2.5

are just diet sodas with a fancy name. Polka Pop Sparkling Water is
healthy & hydrating - just like regular water. With Polka Pop, you
can replace your “seemingly healthy” diet soft drinks and tonics.
Polka Pop has no sugar, no sweeteners of any kind, no preservatives

great as is or as a mixer. If you’ve just gotten on a diet, or are
trying to cut down all the junk (we mean ‘sugar’) from your life, Polka

Why is Polka Pop sold in Plastic Bottles and not glass?
Polka Pop is sold in PET over glass as it is the more sustainable
material out there. Hold your horses! We know it’s not perfect but hear
Greenhouse gas emissions over the lifecycle of the product are much
lower for PET when compared to glass and even aluminium cans.
The recycling ecosystem of PET is very well developed in India with
~over 60% of all transparent PET being recycled. Energy required to
recycle PET is much lower when compared to other materials.
Energy consumption due to weight & loss of energy due to wastage and breakage when in transit is also much lower.
All that being said, it still comes with its pitfalls. We are working
on this and for the time being you can make your purchase plastic
neutral as well. We enable recycling of PET that would otherwise find
its way to the landfills every time you check that box.
We want to do more and are always open to suggestions & ideas.
