Rasana - a cold drink concentrate introduced by Pioma Industries Ahemedabad in the year 1976 has expanded its business in an exponential way. At present, Rasana has 10 versions of which Nimbu Pani, Sahi Gulab and Mango Ripe are the most popular ones. However it does not seem to be healthy drinks because of these points-
1) Rasna contains an active ingredient known as Alpinia and some times it is referred as Chinese Ginger, Colic Root or Catarrh Root. Its excess use may give rise to abdominal pain to the consumers.
2) Children may be addicted with this Soft -drink Concentrates.
3) Excess use of the same has resulted in dental/ enamel problem.
4) The concentrate contains a lot of Glucose and as such this cannot be suitable for a person suffering from Diabetes.
5) There may be the formation of excess acid in the stomach due to the side effect of Alpinia.
Children must be encouraged to take Lassi or Nimbu Pani made at their homes in order to avoid any health - risk.

Rasna is a cold drink concentrate. It is definitely not a health drink. Children may take it once in a while during summer but they must not be addicted to it. Rasna contains Alpinia which may cause pain in lower abdomen if taken excessively.

No packaged products can compete with natural products from any angle. The packaged products has to contain some synthetic chemicals as additives which don't contribute in any manner toward its nutrition value. I personally don't subscribe to the view of taking any branded packaged product including Rasna. It is always advisable to take fresh fruit juice/pulp from health and nutrition point of view.

Anything in excess is always a problem. If taken in limits it's Ok. All the packaged products and tinned food/canned food are always not healthy. Natural foods and drinks made from fresh fruits are healthy. So it is not wise to regularly drink concentrated drinks.

Rasna has artificial sweetener in it. It also has other artificial flavors and color concentrate added into it. This makes it unsafe for consuming on daily basis. If consumed daily, could result in gaining weight. And weight gain due to such sweeteners could lead to the diabetes. Most of the people who consume it on daily or even weekly basis are likely to have some issues in their lever. So the regular consumption is not good. Casual consumption won't hurt the body though. Kids and the mid age people should consume it less. Also those who have gained a lot of weight should avoid consuming it as well. Most of the packaged processed drinking liquid are not at all good for health, so be mindful of consumption.

In my view, taking Rasna or packaged drink should be avoided. They contain preservatives too which is not suitable for normal health. Better lemon is available at all season. So why we don't prefer to take lime juice?. Taking plain water or lemon water is much suitable for health.

In any type of Soft Drinks whether it is rasna or some other apple Juice or tango without any chemicals they cannot be manufactured. Please Note that too much of taking is injurious to health but to a limited way you can consume it there is no harm.
