Uncle Matt’s Organic Expands Fruit-Infused, Cold Pressed Probiotic Water Line With Real Citrus Zest; Lemon Ginger and Lemon Strawberry Flavors Available Summer 2017
Clermont, Florida — March 07, 2017– Uncle Matt’s Organic is adding two new flavors to their Fruit-Infused Organic Probiotic Waters line. Lemon Ginger and Lemon Strawberry flavors will be available Summer 2017 for distribution. Joining the existing line of Orange, Grapefruit and Lemon flavors, these functional waters combine proven and patented GanedenBC30® probiotics with the cold pressed power of fresh squeezed juice, as well as real zest, which contains healthy antioxidant flavonoids.
Each Fruit-Infused Water flavor is two grams or less of natural fruit sugar and 10 calories or less, and are available in a 16.9 oz size, perfect for the lunchbox, post-workout recovery or as a healthy upgrade to water.
Uncle Matt’s fruit-infused waters also contain real organic citrus zest. The zest –– or citrus peel –– contains antioxidant flavonoids, like hesperidin. When used in their natural form, the zest’s antioxidant effects are enhanced by the high levels of vitamin C found in citrus fruits.
“It was an easy decision to expand our fruit infused water line to include Lemon Ginger and Lemon Strawberry flavors,” says Matt McLean, Founder and CEO of Uncle Matt’s Organic. “Lemon is a natural alkalizer that helps to support detoxifying the body while ginger contains gingerol, a substance with powerful medicinal properties.” McLean adds, “Our Lemon Strawberry also packs a healthy punch, since strawberries are a bonafide superfood and packed with Vitamin C, lutein, magnesium and potassium. Add Ganeden’s clinically proven probiotic and you have a low calorie, low sugar beverage powerhouse.”
As with other probiotic-enhanced beverages in the Uncle Matt’s product line, the waters feature over 1 billion CFUs of patented GanedenBC30 probiotics (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) per bottle, to support a healthy immune and digestive system. This innovative and science-backed strain of probiotics is spore forming—the protective spore makes it highly stable and allows for viability throughout processing, shelf life and gastric acidity. GanedenBC30 is certified kosher, halal, non-GMO, gluten free and allergen free.
Uncle Matt’s fruit-infused waters are now available in natural foods stores nationwide, with a suggested MSRP of $3.99. Stop by Booth 3113 at Expo West to sample the new Fruit Infused Probiotic Water flavors.
