BOULDER, Colo. — GoodBelly, a line of delicious probiotic juice beverages that support daily digestive health, announced the launch of its new flavor, GoodBelly Carrot Ginger, and Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts.* The new products will be debuting at Natural Products Expo West at the GoodBelly booth, number 3656. The new Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts include the brand’s first-ever vegetable juice variety, GoodBelly Carrot Ginger, as well as GoodBelly Tropical Orange, Pink Grapefruit and Fermented Probiotic Coconut Water.
“Our new Carrot Ginger and Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts are truly groundbreaking varieties in the probiotic beverage space,” said GoodBelly CEO, Alan Murray. “GoodBelly Carrot Ginger is like nothing we’ve ever created, combining the nutritious and tummy soothing powers of these two ingredients. Plus, we’ve long had the desire to offer a gluten-free line for the rising number of consumers with gluten sensitivity or intolerance, since the symptoms of gluten intolerance directly affect digestion. We’re very excited for our first veggie beverage and proud to be able to offer select GoodBelly beverages that are now gluten-free.”
GoodBelly Carrot Ginger and GoodBelly’s Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts join the company’s selection of beverages that are dairy-free, soy-free, vegan, kosher, and infused with its probiotic strain, Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (LP299V®), which supports daily digestive health.* Unlike many other live and active cultures, LP299V® survives passage beyond the stomach’s acidic environment in order to benefit the rest of the digestive system where it truly counts. New product details include:
- GoodBelly Carrot Ginger – the company’s first vegetable beverage, offering a refreshing combination of carrots and ginger. Ginger has been recognized for its soothing nature, and with the addition of probiotics, Carrot Ginger is the perfect option to help consumers maintain healthy and happy bellies. Carrot Ginger is gluten-free, non-GMO, fortified with 20 billion live and active probiotic cultures per serving, and offers 50 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin A.** MSRP is $3.69 per quart.
- GoodBelly’s Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts – the perfect solution for those who want to support their digestive health, but suffer from gluten sensitivity or Celiac Disease. Made with gluten-free oat flour, the quarts are non-GMO and certified gluten-free. GoodBelly Tropical Orange, Pink Grapefruit and Fermented Probiotic Coconut Water are certified gluten-free by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and Carrot Ginger will be certified gluten-free upon launch. Consumers can identify GoodBelly’s Gluten-Free Family-Sized Quarts by the green cap and gluten-free logo. MSRP is $3.69 per quart.
