PHILADELPHIA—Origin Almond, producer of cold-pressed almond-based beverages, has announced partnerships with Rainforest Distribution & KeHE Distributors. The combined distribution will launch Origin Almond’s ready-to-drink (RTD) Cold-Pressed Almond Juice products further into Mid-Atlantic, and now into the Midwest market, with leading retailers such as Whole Foods Market, MOM’s Organic Markets and Central Market Stores in Texas.
Origin Almond uses novel technology to transform almonds, one of nature’s leanest & mightiest superfoods, into a beverage that offers the fresh, bright and lightly sweetened taste of premium fruit and vegetable juices minus the excess sugar and carbs. Each flavor contains only 1-4 g of sugar per bottle and is infused with a rainbow of superfoods and adaptogens to provide added functional benefits. The suggested retail price is $4.99 for a 12 oz. bottle.
According to Mintel Market Research, 84 percent of consumers are actively reducing their sugar intake due to health & wellness concerns with millennials leading the charge. The sugar reduction trend is also impacting eating & shopping habits as 81 percent of consumers actively check the sugar content of their food and beverages.
“Its no surprise that excess sugar has become public enemy #1—we see that as more consumers are becoming aware of the hidden sugars found in what were initially thought to be healthy foods, like fruit & vegetable juices, and have shunned them altogether,” said Jake Deleon, founder and CEO of Origin Almond. “We’re introducing a low-sugar ‘juice alternative’ that will reinvent the category and reignite the love for premium juices with a delicious product that is more nutritionally relevant.”
Origin Almond’s line of Cold-Pressed Almond Juices are all Vegan, Paleo and Keto-friendly. They utilize HPP technology to retain fresh taste and nutritional efficacy while safely extending shelf life and come in five distinct flavors:
- Lemon Ginger 360° Cleanse, a modern and leaner twist on the traditional lemon, ginger and cayenne juice cleanse. Just 1 g sugar per bottle.
- Ginger & Turmeric Golden-Mylk, a delicious turmeric and ginger powered elixir for plant-based wellness and rejuvenation. Just 3 g sugar per bottle.
- Thai Coconut Piña Colada, a guilt-free tropical coconut refresher with notes of pineapple and vanilla. Just 4 g of sugar per bottle.
- Super Greens 4, the iconic green juice reimagined that features a blend of four super greens sourced from earth and ocean. Just 3 g of sugar per bottle.
- Iced Lemon Chai Spice, clean and light refreshment with fragrant Masala Chai spices and a burst of bright lemon. Just 3 g of sugar per bottle.
