Polar Seltzer

I've got a few questions, calories, water, bubbles, what's the deal?

Polar Seltzer is made of 3 simple ingredients water, bubbles & natural flavors.

1.Locally sourced WATER that is triple-filtered using the latest reverse osmosis technology to create the optimal "canvas' onto which the flavors are painted.

2.Our signature BUBBLES are created by dissolving CO2 into the water at extremely high pressure at a temperature just above freezing. Not too little, not too much.

3.Our NATURAL FLAVORS are the very precious essential oils that carry flavors and aroma in foods. The secret to our zero calorie flavors is that we rely on copious amounts of these very precious oils, we never skimp when it comes to taste (which is actually 70% aroma). After being purified and distilled, these highly concentrated essential oils contain only the aromas and flavors, and none of the nutritional components of the original food source (which is why they are calorie-free.)

NO artificial sweeteners
NO sugars
NO sodium
NO salt
NO carbs

What does 100% Natural Flavors mean?

Polar Seltzers are crafted with premium natural flavors. This means Polar uses highest grade of flavor essences that have been extracted from original food sources such as fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers. After being purified and distilled, these highly concentrated essential oils contain only the aromas and flavors, and none of the nutritional components of the original food source (which is why they are calorie-free.)

• Vegan
• Gluten-Free
• No Sodium, Color, Preservatives, Artificial Sweeteners or Preservatives

Polar Seltzer “natural flavors” do NOT contain sugar, artificial sweeteners, MSG, gluten, sodium or animal products.

Are all seltzers created equally?

NO, lots of brands have begun to use the word SELTZER for beverages that are actually soda, sweetened water, or even booze. Polar Seltzer is exclusively a sparkling recipe made with only three ingredients. Polar Seltzer depends on better carbonation and higher quality flavor essences and no sodium. You should look for

1. 100% Natural
2. No Sweeteners
3. No Sodium

How does Polar add carbonation? Why can't I make Polar at home?

Carbonation is a bit of an art form. The bubbles are “dissolved” into the water at near freezing temperatures and bottled without exposure to oxygen for maximum quality. For safety reasons home seltzer siphon machines cannot reach this level of carbonation (pressure, temperature, flavor).

How do you come up with your Limited Edition Seltzer Flavors?

A few years ago we decided to craft a batch of seltzers as a ‘Thank You‘ to all our devoted fans. We began with playful recipes made in very small quantities to push our creativity. The idea was to surprise and delight diehard Polar Seltzer aficionados. The recipes are still inspired by seasonal ingredients, places we have traveled, or amazing things we’ve tasted.

When do the Limited Edition flavors launch?

A premium collection of Limited Edition recipes that are introduced twice a year and thematically inspired by local ingredients, travel, or trends in American food culture. Our summer collection drops May 1st, and our Winter lineup is announced October 1st.

Sometimes we even drop a few Polar Small Batch surprises along the way.
