Partnerships with GanedenBC30 and MegaFood™ first of their kind
Uncle Matt’s Organic, the nation’s original organic orange juice company, today announced their new organic juices Orange Turmeric and Reduced-Calorie Orange Coconut are now shipping nationwide to retailers. Uncle Matt’s Organic Orange Turmeric and Orange Coconut juices contain the probiotic GanedenBC30, which contains over 1 billion CFUs per 8oz serving. GanedenBC30, which is also in the leading brand of kombucha, supports a healthy digestive and immune system and has over 20 peer-reviewed clinical studies.
“These new blends take the American staple of orange juice and add a functional boost,” says Matt McLean, CEO and Founder of Uncle Matt’s Organic. "We found great partners for these new juices in MegaFood’s high quality organic turmeric and Ganeden’s patented probiotic. We’re hoping that consumers who don’t like taking supplements will have one more option at the grocery aisle to boost their health with a great tasting beverage the whole family will love.”
MegaFood™, a leading whole food supplement producer, and Uncle Matt’s, are continuing their synergy with the addition of MegaFood’s organic Hawaiian turmeric as Uncle Matt’s turmeric source. With over 500mg of farm fresh turmeric per 8oz serving, you can now drink your daily dose. Turmeric has been used in Asia for thousands of years for its health benefits. Uncle Matt’s Orange Turmeric also contains 120% of the RDV for Vitamin C.
“We’re thrilled to continue to partner with Uncle Matt’s Organic,” says Robert U. Craven, CEO of MegaFood. “Now, with our organic turmeric supplement in Uncle Matt’s healthy organic orange juice, we can offer consumers a product that tastes good and that also delivers the powerful benefits of turmeric.”
Uncle Matt’s reduced calorie Orange Coconut also contains GanedenBC30 patented probiotics with only 70 calories per serving, which is 36% less calories than regular orange juice and 40% less fruit sugar. Uncle Matt’s Orange Coconut also contains B Vitamins and boasts natural electrolytes and Vitamin C.
“Our Orange Coconut juice dramatically reduces the calories per serving and natural fruit sugar without sacrificing flavor or nutrients,” says McLean. “It's 100% juice with vitamins and electrolytes. I think consumers taste buds will agree that the hint of coconut paired with our orange juice is refreshing.”
Offered in family-friendly BPA-free 59 oz. packaging, Uncle Matt’s new juices are gluten-free and have no added ingredients, flavors, or preservatives. And as with all of Uncle Matt’s products, each is grown and produced without the use of GMOs or synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. Uncle Matt’s juices will be available in select Whole Foods and Kroger stores nationwide.
