@@img1NEWTOWN, PA Jan 03, 2007 – Energy drinks are a hot commodity in the US, with over $3 billion in sales in just 9 years. Unfortunately the popular energy drinks — full of high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, and artificial colors, flavors and preservatives — have left the millions of healthy, natural consumers behind. Finally, there’s a new great tasting organic energy drink thanks to The Healthy Beverage Company, makers of the wildly popular all-natural and certified USDA Organic Steaz(R) Green Tea Soda. The Healthy Beverage Company is proud to introduce the world’s first USDA Organic and Fair-Trade Certified(TM) energy drink, Steaz(R) Energy(TM): Organic Fuel for the Mind, Body and Soul(TM).
Steaz(R) Energy(TM) starts with the finest organic, Fair-Trade Certified green tea from Sri Lanka. Because the tea is Fair-Trade Certified, consumers can rest assured that the farmers who picked the tea are paid fair wages and given decent working conditions.Steaz(R) Energy(TM) also contains organic Guayaki yerba mate. Containing three times the caffeine content of green tea, yerba mate is a native tree found in the rainforest of Brazil. Boosting the Steaz(R) Energy(TM) antioxidant profile is acai, the new Brazilian fruit from importer Sambazon.
Acai contains 33 times the anthocyanin content of red wine grapes, plus omega fatty acids, fiber, amino acids, flavonoids and trace minerals. A touch of guarana, another powerful rainforest grown fruit with naturally occurring caffeine, and pure organic sugar cane juice give natural consumers just the boost they need — without highly refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.Steaz(R) Energy(TM) has a wonderfully light berry flavor with just the right amount of carbonation. The drink is debuting the new tall 12 oz. SLEEK(TM) can for only $1.99, the same price as the 8 oz. energy drinks.
Steaz Soda is sold in the US in over 7,000 stores including natural, specialty, gourmet, mass and club stores — in 40 states as well as through food service and the military. Steaz is sold internationally in Canada, Australia, Mexico, India, Singapore and the Middle East.
