  1. Ban on ‘vitamin’ water adverts

    HEALTH: An ad for Coca-Cola’s Vitamin Water has been banned for claiming that the drink is “nutritious” while containing up to five teaspoons of sugar, watchdog ASA said today.

    Three people complained that the poster for Vitamin Water was misleading for using the word “nutritious” in the catchline.

    ASA said it considered that consumers would understand the word “nutritious” as a claim that Vitamin Water contained added ingredients that were needed by the body in order to stay healthy.
