PepsiCo's Naked Juice Not So Natural After All

Written by

 

PepsiCo is in hot water again and this time it's for making false claims. The company's line of fresh juices called "Naked Juice" have been through a lawsuit and back, costing the soda manufacturer $9 million in damages. The beverage was brought to court after Pepsi labelled the drink "natural" despite third-party testing revealing otherwise.

 

Fish tanks are elegant, peaceful and fun to look at but that clearly wasn't enough for Nikhil Arora and Alejandro Velez. The enterprising duo from UC Berkeley have turned the world of aquariums upside down by combining the popular hobby with a hydroponic system. Thanks to them US markets now have a table-top, closed-system aquaponics kit available for purchase called Aquafarm.  

 

Roots are undeniably one of the most vital components of plant physiology.

Darin and Deb Kelly of Good Life Farms are enjoying a good bit of success after adding a hydroponic extension to their farm. The couple, who are based in Martinsville, Indiana, have been selling traditionally grown produce since 2006.

 

Hydroponic gardening rarely has a hard time selling itself. Pick any one of its defining features and you've got a pitch sure to rival most features of traditional agriculture. Its water efficiency alone has been enough to make more than a few modern farmers jump on the hydroponic bandwagon and it's all for good reason. Boasting 90% less water consumption than conventional farming methods, hydroponics stretches every drop to its full potential through closed systems that cycle flows of water over and over. But could this number be brought down even further? The answer is all around us.

Mexico is getting ready to expand its agricultural sector and has its eye on hydroponics.  The country, which is closely rivalled by California as the top provider of fresh produce for North America, has nearly 25.5 million hectares of arable land at its disposal for farming.
