Naturally sweet and refreshing nourishment flowing from sustainable trees

Looking to Mother Nature for a more delicious way to nourish and replenish the body, Drink Simple, from the makers of DRINKmaple, brings organic plant hydration to U.S. consumers in SIG combidome cartons, the first of its kind in this packaging solution. The composite from which the entire carton pack is made, from the base to the eye-catching yet practical dome, contains around 75 % paper board, which is made from renewable raw wood material.

A healthful beverage alternative

Maple water is naturally nutritious, containing 46 polyphenols, antioxidants, prebiotics, minerals, and electrolytes. With a subtle hint of sweetness, it provides an ideal better-for-you beverage option to traditional soft drinks. The Drink Simple brand captures the pure essence of this liquid goodness at the source, tapping trees at the peak of harvest in order to protect the integrity of the taste and nutrients for consumers to enjoy year round.

Contrary to inclinations of thought associated with maple as the thick, golden-brown indulgent topping for breakfast foods, maple water is thin, clear sap flowing directly from the tree in its natural state. It is 98 % water, and only after processing where the liquid is boiled down does it transform into the familiar sweet syrup. More importantly, it is certainly not maple syrup mixed with water.

This clean, single-ingredient label product is also low calorie, non GMO, naturally alkaline 7.4 PH, and certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI). For those with dietary preferences, the beverage offers a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, paleo option that has half the sugar of coconut water and more manganese than a cup of kale.

In the process of collecting the sap, no trees are harmed on the farms of which they are grown, ensuring many years of sustainable water supplies. By filling their Original Maple Water variety in SIG’s combidome, the brand is furthering its sustainability endeavors as carton packaging maintains a high content of renewable raw wood material.
