Consumers can now get their daily probiotics from all single serve, coffee brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs.

“The composition of GanedenBC30 allows food and beverage manufacturers the freedom to create innovative probiotic products that would otherwise be impossible,” said Michael Bush, Senior Vice President of Ganeden Biotech. “Copper Moon’s French Vanilla Cappuccino is an innovation in single serve, coffee brewing,” adds Bush. “It is the first product utilizing K-Cup® technology to contain a probiotic and we are excited that GanedenBC30 can be a part of such an exciting advancement within this booming industry.”

Copper Moon’s French Vanilla Cappuccino has a rich wonderful flavor and is crafted with only the highest quality ingredients. “We’re very excited to introduce this innovation in functional hot beverages. This is the world’s first probiotic enriched, French Vanilla Cappuccino for single cup brewers” says Copper Moon® CEO Brad Gutwein. “Consumers with a single cup brewer will now be able to brew our new French Vanilla Cappuccino with the added digestive and immune support of GanedenBC30.”
