Canada Dry "Ginger" Ale
|Food and Beverage Labeling||Drugs, Supplements and Health|
Canada Dry ginger ale is advertised as being "made from real ginger." But the soft drink is actually made using only a tiny amount of ginger extract, plus other flavors that mimic the taste of ginger. The product does not have the health or medical benefits of real ginger.
