Shelf-stable smoothies boost energy levels
With a staggering 93 percent of women skipping meals, it comes as no surprise the USDA reports most Americans are falling short on their daily nutritional needs — leading to lower energy levels and, over time, increased risk for chronic diseases. Experts agree simply eating smaller or light meals throughout the day can be a highly effective way of regulating energy levels, with the added benefits of burning fat calories more efficiently and regulating cholesterol levels.
Minnetonka, Minn.-based Nestle Nutrition, part of Nestle S.A., launches Boost Smoothie Nutritional Energy Drinks, a line of shelf-stable drinks.
Flavors include Strawberry, Raspberry and Peach, and with nine grams of protein, 22 vitamins and minerals and as much calcium as a glass of milk, each Smoothie offers refreshing fruit flavor with the balanced nutrition and reliable energy expected from Boost. And the portable, easy-to-open package makes grabbing-and-going easier than ever.
“Taste, nutrition and convenience don't have to be mutually exclusive," says Barbara McCartney, director of marketing at Nestle Nutrition. "With refreshing fruit flavors and portable, spill-proof packaging, these Smoothies are packed with nutrition making it easy for people to get the most out of their active day. New Boost Smoothies meet consumers' needs for new flavor options and variety among energy drinks in the nutrition aisle."
