Royal Oak, Mich – April 10, 2017 – Nurish Brands, Inc. today announced the launch of a “new & improved” formulation for its FEEL® caffeinated beverage line, which is now Non-GMO Project Verified. In addition to new 12-ounce “sleek” cans, flavors Dragonfruit Lime and Blackberry Pomegranate join Raspberry Lemonade and Mango Passionfruit in the lineup.

FEEL is a refreshing caffeinated alternative to coffee, tea and soda, free from artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, and preservatives. The Non-GMO verified lineup is formulated with a plant-based sweetener blend that allows for only 4 grams of sugar – and 15 calories – per 12-ounce serving. Available in four uniquely appealing flavors, each serving delivers 100 milligrams of caffeine derived from green coffee beans and provides an excellent source of antioxidants, including a full-day’s supply of vitamin C. The new line will soon be available throughout the Midwest, as well as select retailers in Texas and Florida, with a suggested retail price of $2.29 for a 12-ounce can.

"We identified and validated a whitespace in the market for a great tasting, low-sugar caffeinated beverage that satisfies a consumer craving for a healthy mid-day boost. Our original line performed extremely well at natural retailers like Whole Foods, but we quickly learned that mainstream shoppers either are unaware of or simply aren’t fond of stevia, which was a primary ingredient in our original line. The bottom line is, most consumers aren’t willing to trade taste for health. We spent nearly a year perfecting a plant-based sweetener system that’s free from artificial sweeteners, sugar alcohols and gums, yet delivers full-on sugar taste and mouthfeel with only 4 grams of sugar per serving. We're super excited to introduce our ultra-low calorie, non-GMO verified line to health-minded consumers – particularly females – everywhere."

Is Coffee a Health Food?

There's mounting evidence that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease and dementia, along with fewer cases of certain cancers, heart issues and strokes. It seems like there's much more good news than bad news, in terms of coffee and health.

Is Sugar Worse than Fat?

In the battle of the bulge, fat has historically been perceived as the enemy. As we learn that not all types of fats are created equal, the culprit now more often mentioned is added sugar.Over consumption of sugar in our diets may in fact be more dangerous than fats.

Sugar is what we should really be looking at when we turn around the products at our local grocery store. But most people still don’t look for that. They’re still looking for “low-fat” options and “zero calorie” soft drinks, thinking they’re doing the right thing for their health.

The problem with many “low-fat” foods is that when manufacturers take the fat out of something, they simply replace it with more sugar, or sugar-like substances (e.g., artificial sweeteners).  If “low-fat” was really the answer, then we wouldn’t be in the situation we’re in with 67% of American adults classified as overweight or obese.

Nutrition Labels to Get Makeover

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today announced plans to update nutrition labels to better reflect the latest nutrition science. The changes include making more realistic serving sizes, and including "added sugar" amounts on the label.

The government's proposed changes to nutrition labels appear to be a positive − and long overdue − move in the right direction. In fact, the changes being proposed might even spur food and beverage companies to introduce healthier options.

We're a big fan of changing serving sizes on products that can be consumed in one sitting, so that the whole product is considered a single serving. For example, under the proposal, both 12- and 20-ounce bottles of soda would be considered one serving, because people usually drink the whole bottle in either case (per the FDA).

But alone, are these changes enough to combat the rising obesity levels in this country, especially among kids and teens? To be sure, having a clear nutrition label is important, but label changes single-handedly will unlikely curb our nations obesity epidemic. Other changes are needed, especially better access to healthy foods and beverages, as well as a reduction in marketing unhealthy foods.

All in all, we believe the proposed changes are good news for consumers, especially considering that studies have shown that people who read labels eat healthier.

Fueled by increased scrutiny and criticism about the energy drink category, nearly six in 10 Americans who are current consumers of the products say that they're concerned about potential health risks associated with the highly-caffeinated beverages.

Americans swallow a whopping 13 percent of their daily calories from added sugars. That adds up to about 130 pounds per year. Break that down to the daily level, and we're way over the limit, downing the equivalent of 22 teaspoons of added sugars a day. Read more...
