A new generation conscious of their health and well-being, coupled with a growing demand for products containing less sugar, means the beverages industry is facing up to a major challenge. The Government’s ‘sugar tax’ on soft drinks has put even more pressure on the industry to develop new, healthier ranges, with the public turning away from drinks containing added sugar and artificial sweeteners. Studies show these are linked to a rise in obesity, diabetes and cancer in modern societies.
WET BEVERAGES LTD. is a subsidiary of WET Holdings (Global) Limited and the commercialisation arm for WET water, soft drinks, and beverages technology and products.
For expression of interest or for detailed information,
WET is transforming the beverages industry by introducing an evidence-based and IP-backed new range of alkaline water and products that contain no artificial sweeteners or added sugar. This is achieved by WET’s newly developed Activated Enhancement System (AES) which puts into practice years of evidence-based research and technology development.
This system uses a propriety media that interacts with purified and treated water under specific and controlled reaction conditions and specifications. The alkaline water produced is then blended with drinks formulations at commercial volumes to produce a 21st century range of bottled or packaged drinks.
Activated Enhancement System (AES)
The AES is a game-changer. It is an augmented water enhancement system capable of producing clean, fresh-tasting water with a stable pH which can be set at any level up to pH 10.5.
A modular system, the AES treats water flow rates ranging from 50 litres/min to 1800 litres/min or more. It can meet any commercial production demands.
The system utilises a patented non-Magnetic Suspended Agitation Process (nMSAP) that causes a propriety media to interact with purified and treated water under specific and controlled reaction conditions inside mineral manipulation chambers to produce alkaline water.
The pH of the water that is produced can support flavourings, electrolytes, vitamins, and proteins. Unlike any other technology, the compact system can be installed into any commercial bottling plant within hours. The AES does not use electrolysis to create water alkalinity, nor does it produce waste water or acidic waste water as a byproduct. This sets it apart from other water alkalinity treatment methods currently available. Also, the AES does not need naturally alkaline source of water in its process.
The AES machine is CE certified and conforms with the following EU directives: Directive 2006/42/EC, The Machinery Directive, Directive 2014/35/EU, The Low Voltage Directive and Directive 2014/30/EU, The Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive. The system can easily be re-adapted to meet UL specifications.

The list below shows the alkaline water and drinks that have been successfully developed and tested by WET. These products passed aseptic bottling microbial testing and accelerated ambient and abusive shelf life testings conducted by a UKAS accredited independent lab.
Nutritional certificates reported that WET’s alkaline water, red berries water and lemon and lime multi-vitamin drink contained <0.1g of sugar in 100ml drink, whilst the alkaline orange sports drink contained 2.4g of sugar in 100ml drink. Published studies indicated the average amount of sugar content in commercially available soft drinks is 9.02g/100ml, while the average sugar content in sports drinks in the market contained 6.07g of sugar per 100ml. WET’s products are significantly ahead of the game. They are market leaders and they are making a difference.
Several other agenda-setting new drinks are currently in the research and development pipeline. To keep you updated with our latest developments and products, please click here.
