Well, like most unreasoned posts, this if course is true, but in selective isolation it doesn't reveal a very full picture!

For one, what else are you going to replace the sugar with, apart from sugar of one sort or another?
Just because sugar is natural doesn't mean it is a good idea eating or drinking a lot of it.

I am not mad keen of it, but I can just about get away with drinking this type of drink, in small to moderate quantities, it is about 0.6% carbohydrate, all of which are sugars - if it had more sugar in, or was just fruit juice, (which of course would taste very nice), then I couldn't, as fruit juice is full of sugar (fructose, the easiest sugar to breakdown in the body!), and my Insulin production goes into overdrive, as a result the rest of my endocrine system goes mad for a while as a result, and I end up an incoherent quivering mass a couple of hours later as I end up hypoglycaemic because of all the extra Insulin is eating up too much of the rest of the glucose in my body!
Diabetics have different but related problems managing the sugars, and while too much artificial sweetener is not good for diabetics either, small amounts mean they need not worry so much about drinking this sort of drink, unlike sugar containing drinks.

I might not like artificial sweeteners, but in common with up to 20% of the population, I am a lot better off with them than any natural or manmade sugars! Ideally we should all cut out the sugar, but that's asking a lot, & is fighting an inherent desire for sweet foods, even though many people can not handle them well.

As for additives... well that's an expression that can mean ANYTHING - A bit like something the Daily Mail would mis-use!
Lots of foods have additives, from water to Foie gras to Salt, that no-one would complain about, as they are part of the recipe of whatever food they are put in, and need to be looked at in relation to what it is. This does indeed contain additives eg. preservative, but nothing else I can see is not a natural product of plant origin.

As far as preservatives go, I must admit, I don't like having preservatives, if easily avoided - but I prefer preservatives to the alternative.... Moulds which of course isn't a very safe thing, but hey, you take your chance with those known powerful toxins, I will take my chance with a chemical that has known toxic properties too.... but far less serious ones!

Food fascism is as dangerous as any other sort of extremism when played about with too casually :-(
