    If there is added sugar get rid of it and call it bournvita light/bournvita lite, a person who has been drinking bournvita at bedtime especially if Indian well into old age gets easily addicted to it and so wouldn’t want to give it up that easily, so bournvita will have to innovate to remain the winner and to hold on to the diabetic who wants his bournvita,
