The Leader in Amazon Superfoods Pioneers use of Acerola Cherry, Brazil Nut, and Yacon into Trending Beverage Segments
San Clemente, Calif. (Oct. 18, 2013) – Sambazon, the pioneer of açaí and Amazon Superfoods™, announced it is expanding its line of functional drinks with three new organic superfood beverages. Inspired by the flavor profiles of Sambazon’s popular 3-Day Purifying Cleanse, Protein Recharge, Purifying Greens and Daily Cleanse, are each crafted with a new Amazon Superfood to deliver powerful nutrition and exotic taste. The fresh beverages will be available in January 2014.
“When we launched these items as part of our 3-Day Purifying Cleanse, we experienced a huge uptick in emails and phone calls from consumers looking to purchase the beverages separately because of their great functional benefits and unique flavor profiles,” said Ryan Black, CEO and co-founder of Sambazon. “We had a half a million people cleanse with us this year, and expanding these powerful superfood beverages as individual offerings is perfect for people looking to maintain healthy habits, particularly when it comes from their desire for new ways to get their proteins, greens and antioxidants.”
All three beverages are Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. Each beverage leverages a unique Amazon Superfood to bring a fresh take on the sizeable and growing Protein, Greens, and Cleanse segments. Product details:
• Protein Recharge – A delicious and satisfying blend of wild harvested Brazil nuts, cashews and a hint of cocoa that delivers 8 grams of whole-food, plant-based protein, 20 percent of the Daily Value of magnesium and 240 milligrams of potassium to help with muscle support and keep you feeling fuller, longer. Brazil nuts are almost 20 percent protein by weight, and contain healthy fats and trace minerals to make this one powerful Amazon Superfood smoothie.
• Purifying Greens – This purifying juice beverage blends the nutritional powerhouse of kale, cucumber, and parsley with a hint of yacon, to naturally help support digestion and offer more than one full serving of vegetables. Yacon is a low-glycemic sweetener from Peru that has 25 percent fewer calories than sugar, and adds a perfectly sweet flavor compared to the typical earthiness of most green drinks.
• Daily Cleanse – An invigorating and energizing blend of antioxidant-rich acerola cherry, detoxifying lemon and metabolic boosting cayenne that promotes hydration and provides 210 percent of the Daily Value of vitamin C. Acerola, also known as Amazon Cherry, provides amazing levels of vitamin C. Ounce per ounce, acerola juice packs more than 30 times the vitamin C of orange juice.
Protein Recharge, Purifying Greens and Daily Cleanse will be offered in 1 Liter Tetra Pak containers, and will be available in the refrigerated sections of natural health food stores and grocers nationwide starting in January.
