    Sorbitol and other zero-calorie artificial sweeteners.

    Sameway there's Nestea Zero, Diet CPlus or any other diet sweet tasting beverage.

    That being said, Xience's Xenergy > All for sugar free energy drinks.

    What does carbonation do? :dunno:

    Carbonation may interfere with absorption because the higher acidity of such beverages inhibits normal secretion of stomach enzymes, such as proteases, which break down protein into amino acids. Carbonated beverages also may somehow force much of the food consumed to sit in the higher part of the stomach, where the enzymes are not found, preventing the normal breakdown of protein.

    Does artificial sweetener have no calories because you can't digest it?

    almost anything you eat is digested - whether it is metabolized or not is the question.

    depends on the artificial sweetener. Some, ((such as sugar-alcohols) are low cal - but are still metabolized. Others such as asperthame or asulfame-potassium are not metabolized

    Xience is the only one of the sugar free drinks that doesn't taste like a dead baby's blood.
