#127. Are the La Croix Sparkling Water beverages carbohydrate-free?

Full question: Are the La Croix Sparkling Water beverages carbohydrate-free?

Reply: The manufacture of these beverages report that "essence oils from fruit" are used to provide flavor. Food regulations in the US allow companies to claim zero carbohydrate on their labels if there is less than 1 gram in a single serving; it is possible that there is carbohydrate but it is not quanitified.
