Panera Bread Nutrition Information: Iced Green Tea
Water, evaporated cane juice, brewed green tea, plant extracts-color, natural flavors, citric acid.
Did you notice that first ingredient behind water? It's "evaporated cane juice." Notice that it comes before "brewed green tea." That's right, the most plentiful ingredient (aside from WATER) in GREEN TEA is EVAPORATED CANE JUICE. Panera's Green Tea has more SUGAR than GREEN TEA!!
A 16oz Green Tea has 23g of sugar in it. A 20oz Green Tea has 28g of sugar in it. (in both cases there are 2g of other net carbs in there, FYI)
Clearly Panera Bread is not a northern company. No northerner would dare include sugar by DEFAULT in any sort of tea, ESPECIALLY GREEN TEA! Putting sugar or even milk in green tea is sacrilege. So I looked it up... Where is Panera Bread headquartered?
6710 Clayton Road
Richmond Heights, MO 63117
So how do I get the sugar out of my tea?
