Coco Libre to Relaunch Protein + Coconut Water line at Expo West 2014

Palo Alto, CA (Mar. 4, 2014) – Coco Libre, an emerging leader and innovator in certified organic coconut water, will re-present its newest line – Coco Libre Protein – at this Spring’s Expo West, March 7-9, 2014, at booth # 5689.

Starting with Fair Trade certified organic coconut water, Coco Libre combines, rBst-free and grass fed milk protein isolate, to create the optimum protein blend, and uses ingredients including Dutch cocoa and Madagascar vanilla. Each 11oz. container has : 20g protein = three eggs, calcium = 2 cups of milk, potassium = 1 banana, magnesium = 2 cups of broccoli. It has no added sugar, low fat, delivers 23 vitamins & minerals, and five electrolytes (K, Ca, Mg, P, Na). Coco Libre Protein is the NO ADDED SUGAR PROTEIN with only 140 calories per bottle. The line will also debut new packaging, an 11oz tetra pak with resealable lid.

“After hearing that many of our consumers were eating an egg along with drinking a bottle of Coco Libre or adding a scoop of protein to our coconut water to make their own protein shake, we wanted to create an uber beverage with no added sugar and preservatives that tastes great,” says Mark Shaw, founder of Maverick Brands. “Our new Coco Libre Protein is convenient and delivers the protein consumers want with half the calories of the leading protein beverages and with a lot more benefits. Plus, we use great tasting wholesome ingredients you can actually pronounce. So, whether you’re a professional athlete or an average active person, you can stay hydrated and get your protein too.”

All three flavors are available in the 11oz tetra pak, have no added sugar, contain only 140 calories per bottle, and are made with Fair Trade certified organic coconut water and natural ingredients. Each bottle has as much protein as three eggs, as much calcium as two cups of milk, more potassium than a banana, as much magnesium as two cups of broccoli, 23 vitamins & minerals, and five electrolytes. They are also low in fat, cholesterol, lactose, and gluten-free. Available in three mouthwatering flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, & Almond. Why drink anything else?
