New York City, April 9, 2015 — Mansi, the world’s first premium calamansi juice beverage, is gaining momentum and expanding its sales into Fairway Markets across the New York tri-state area. This innovative, not from concentrate drink is Non-GMO Project Verified and provides health-conscious consumers an alternative within the citrus juice category that is cholesterol-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and fat-free. The calamansi, Mansi’s main ingredient, makes it unique to those who have not tasted it before. Despite its numerous health benefits, many Americans have never heard of a calamansi because it is not grown or sold in the United States. The fruit is native to the Philippines and a cultural staple that can be enjoyed at anytime. It has been a morning ritual for many Filipinos across the country to drink the fruit juice as a healthy way to kick start their day. “Due to the calamansi’s abundance in Vitamin C containing antioxidant and digestive properties, Filipinos drink the juice warm like tea in the morning or enjoy it as a cold, refreshing beverage throughout the day,” says Mansi CEO & Founder Charles Medenilla.
Nicknamed the Philippine Lemon or Golden Lime, the calamansi is regarded as the country’s best kept secret. The green-to-golden yellow fruit are tiny, but each one is packed with Vitamin C and nutrient rich. Unlike the United States, lemons and oranges are not commonplace in the Philippines which makes the calamansi the go-to citrus fruit in the country for drinking, cooking and even traditionally known as an immunity booster.
Mansi’s ingredients are simple. The juice comes from hand-picked calamansi. It’s then sweetened with organic cane sugar and a splash of organic honey. Consumers say the taste is unlike anything else. A perfect balance of sweet and sour that’s similar to a cross between a tangerine and a lime. Mansi also serves as a great addition to mixed drinks, and a delicious ingredient to cooking recipes that could use an exotic kick.
