Independent and trusted reviews and tests of beverages, including coffee, milk, sports drinks, and bottled juices.


Wheatgrass juice

It's the health tonic of the moment, but where’s the evidence for its benefits?

23 May 2006 | If you believe the hype, wheatgrass can nourish the blood and detoxify poisons, purify the liver, rebuild the bloodstream and more — all before breakfast.


Coffee chains review 2005

You could be taking away a lot more than you bargained for.

28 May 2005 | A coffee-to-go can provide a much needed caffeine fix. While a standard latte or cappuccino may be relatively harmless, some coffee chain drinks can provide a lot more kilojoules, fat and sugar than you might realise.

30 Sep 2001 | Thirst is an emergency response — by the time you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated.
