NATURALLY HEALTHY www.gourmetnews.com n MARCH 2016 n GOURMET NEWS N H 2 6 NutriBlade Introduces Three New Flavors to Beverage Line NutriBlade, a manufacturer of organic wheatgrass beverages, has announced the re- lease of three new flavors to its line of 12- ounce RTD beverages. NutriBlade introduced Wild Blueberry, Tart Cherry and Sweet Pear flavors in early February at the 2016 KeHE Summer Selling trade show in Atlanta. In fall 2015, NutriBlade partnered with one of the nation's premier natural, or- ganic and specialty foods distributors, KeHE, entering its Speed 2 Shelf program to expedite the release of its products nation- wide. As the first and only premium wheat- grass beverage in the United States, NutriBlade brings a unique set of attributes that make it a desirable addition to retailers' functional beverage lineup. "We spent a lot of time perfecting each of these new flavors and we are extremely ex- cited by the amount of positive feedback we received at the Summer Selling show in February," explains Nutri- Blade Chief Execu- tive Officer Tony Marks. "There truly is nothing like this on the market today, which makes it ex- tremely unique. Health-conscious consumers are already aware of the numerous benefits of wheatgrass as a superfood and the accept- ance we have received in the market has been even higher than we could have imag- ined." NutriBlade is America's first and only ready-to-drink premium wheatgrass bever- age. It's packed full of 13 vitamins, 12 min- erals and 20 amino acids. It's lightly sweetened, tastes great and is just 100 calo- ries. NutriBlade is certified organic, and is free from artificial colors, flavors and preser- vatives. Each bottle contains more than five shots of wheatgrass. NutriBlade is currently available in four flavors: Original Wheat- grass, Wild Blueberry, Tart Cherry and Sweet Pear.

See What's Been Working Before Launching into the Next Health Craze Instead of the trendy "new and improved," how about "long term, authentic and effective"? The most powerful natural substance on the planet, the foundation of good health since the begin- ning of mankind, deserves another look. Organic, plant derived fulvic and humic min- erals have been working their magic behind the scenes as long as we mere mortals have been eating food. But now that our food sources are depleted of this vital substance, the only way to get a natural, untainted source of fulvic and humic supplements are by paying critical atten- tion to how it has been extracted….otherwise the benefits just won't be there. In a nutshell, here's what fulvic and humic can do when properly processed using nothing but cool, purified water, without any kind of acid extraction or high heat: fulvic and humic are nature's way of energizing and purifying every system of the body. They supercharge cel- lular activity, which enhances every biological function. When fulvic and humic are present, you simply cannot escape their positive bene- fits; they go to work right where they're needed for healing, rejuvenation and detoxification, and that's exactly why the far reaching benefits are so varied, incredible and long lasting. So how can you be certain the products on your shelves use acid free extraction? If acids are used, the manufacturer will be forced to sweeten and flavor the product to cover the vile, nasty taste and chemical residue that remains in the product. Processing that includes heat, air extrusion or chemicals all destroy precious ful- vic/humic. Less fulvic/humic equals less health benefits. When you find a customer who isn't "wowed" by minerals, then you have a customer who has probably been taking the wrong kind of minerals. A red flag will always be flavoring, sweeteners and high mineral counts on the label. Minerals right from plants will be in the trace amounts presented by nature. Why? Nature doesn't need to manipulate nutrient amounts be- cause they're already in the most beneficial, ab- sorbable and effective ratios and forms. Vital Earth has been committed to mild acid- free extraction right from its inception, in the year 2000. Because it's impossible to improve on the health giving benefits nature gave fulvic and humic, nothing has been added or taken away from its mineral products at any time dur- ing extraction. They're as natural as you can get, right from the fresh water, organic based plant matter to the bottle. Since fulvic and humic magnify the effec- tiveness of every nutrient they come in contact with, it adds them to every formulated product it creates: Cal Mag Liquid, Super Multi, Vital Joint Support and its soon to be released energy boosting electrolyte chew- able. Vital Earth's formulators work hard to make certain all of its formulated products taste fan- tastic. Its Cal Mag Liquid is downright deli- cious, and its Super Multi was voted No. 1 best tasting liquid multi vitamin by independent focus groups. All of its products are free of artificial color- ing, flavoring, sweeteners, crystalline fructose, HFCS, MSG, gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, yeast and starch, and all ingredients are non-GMO. Visit booth #975 for taste samples and a com- plete fulvic report, or go to www.vitalearthminerals.com. All products are available direct or through Select Nutrition, KeHE and UNFI. Santiva International Hits Sweet Spot in Innovation without Compromising Taste While large companies have been using allulose as a sweetener for drinks and foods, pure allu- lose has not been available directly to the con- sumer until now.
