Health and wellness, as well as taste and pleasure, remain overarching driving factors in the food industry. Consumers are reluctant to sacrifice taste for health and the industry is constantly on the lookout for new ways to attract shoppers’ attention. Naturex food experts have developed some new tasty and healthy applications that will be showcased at the Naturex Engredea booth, #639. Applications include:
Up-Beet Sports Drink
This cold-pressed sports drink (pictured) targets health-conscious, active individuals that work out, want to improve their performance and hydrate. Made using Naturex’s new Unpasteurized Premium Juice (UPJ) line, the beverage combines UPJ vegetable juices with ginseng extract and high vitamin C acerola to create an energizing and hydrating sports drink where all carbohydrates and electrolytes are delivered by the juices.
A new UPJ line utilizes cold pressing and a non-thermal and non-enzymatic processes to preserve the nutritional qualities and health benefits of the raw vegetables. Naturex is the first vegetable juice supplier to offer the freshest tasting, industrially available vegetable juices on the market today. UPJ is available in organic and conventional varieties.
Vegetables on the Go (VEGO) Green and Red, Fruit and Veg Pouches
VEGO Red is a stunning combination of tomato, red bell pepper and raspberry. VEGO Green offers a harmonious mix of spinach, kale, passion fruit and celery. These fruit and vegetable blends meet the market demand for trendy flavors and healthier content, as no sugar has been added. Positioned as an alternative to traditional snacking, these pouches are a perfect fit for busy adults looking to improve their eating habits.
Among the other applications that will be showcased: a naturally energizing, organic coconut and pineapple Agua Fresca featuring Naturex’s ingredients, including the new organic turmeric color; and a Fruit & Chai Protein Nut Bar, a delicious almond, pumpkin seed and honey snack that provides indulgence while meeting health and protein needs.
