Digging Digestive, Gut Health
Digestive health and gut health have been getting a lot of attention, lately, and are becoming a key benefit in functional beverages. Probiotics, fiber and other ingredients are being added to a variety of products to improve gut health and/or digestion. For example, Yogi launched during Expo West its Cranberry Spice Probiotic Balance tea, which contains a non-allergenic version of Ganeden’s BC30, as well as cranberry and Hawthorne berry for digestion. Other digestion-supporting beverages featured at Expo West include:
- Fru Zinga high-fiber drinkable yogurts contain 8 g fiber per serving. The beverages also offer live probiotic cultures and 5 g protein per serving.
- Suja Organic Sunrise probiotic juice is a strawberry smoothie that offers 2 billion CFUs of GanedenBC30.
- Uncle Matt’s Organic juice is fortified with 1 billion CFU of GanedenBC30 per serving, and is available in Organic Orange Coconut and Organic Orange Turmeric varieties.
- Karma Wellness Water utilizes KarmaCap’s dispensing cap, an innovative packaging design to ensure probiotics will be effective through shelf life and storage of the product. The digestive supporting ingredients are stored in the cap until the consumer infuses the contents into water, which provides 2 billion CFUs of GanedenBC30.
