PURCHASE, N.Y., March 10 /PRNewswire/ — Consumers are looking for great- tasting beverages that multi-task, and they’re seeking more functionality from their enhanced waters. PepsiCo answers that challenge with the introduction of four reformulated versions of its Aquafina Alive Nutrient Enhanced Water Beverage lineup, including a new option with 10 percent of the daily recommended value (DV) of fiber.
@@imgAquafina Alive, a line extension of the nation’s leading water brand, adds more functionality to PepsiCo’s leading hydration portfolio. The new products pair ingredients like caffeine, electrolytes, antioxidants, fiber and vitamins with great tasting water.
With names like “Protect”, “Energize,” “Satisfy,” and “Hydrate,” the new lineup addresses a variety of consumer needs:
— Aquafina Alive Satisfy (10-Calorie Peach Mango, with 10% DV of fiber) is one of the only waters on the market with a significant amount of fiber to help lightly fill you up.
— Aquafina Alive Protect (Calorie-free Berry Pomegranate, with 10% DV of Vitamins E and C) is a good source of E and C vitamins. These beneficial antioxidants help to protect the body from free radicals.
— Aquafina Alive Energize (Calorie-free Orange Lime, with caffeine, 10% DV of Vitamin B) is enhanced with about as much caffeine as an average cup of coffee and is a good source of B vitamins.
— Aquafina Alive Hydrate (Calorie-Free Lemon, with electrolytes, sodium and potassium) is enhanced with electrolytes to replenish the nutrients an active body loses throughout the day.
“These beverages build on Aquafina’s heritage, adding the relevant benefits of nutrients and delicious flavors – delivering the multi-tasking enhanced water consumers seek,” said Ahad Afridi, vice president, Aquafina.
Aquafina Alive will also feature new label graphics, designed to clearly convey flavor, benefits and ingredients in a clean, simple, way that brings the new flavors to life.
In addition to Aquafina, PepsiCo’s hydration portfolio also includes category-leading products under the Gatorade, Propel and SoBe trademarks.
