Technology Yields Zero-Calorie Fruit Juice-Flavored Teas
R.C. Bigelow Inc. recently rolled out a line of herb teas flavored with real fruit juices.Caffeine-free, the teas contain zero calories, no carbs and no artificial flavors and are available in four flavors: Berri-Good (a blend of blackberries, blueberries and strawberries); Tasty Tangerine; Taste of the Tropics (mango, pineapple and other fruits) and Pomegranate Pizzazz. Using patented technology for encapsulating real fruit juices so they can be combined with a blend of natural herbs, the teas burst with real fruit-juice flavor, according to the company.Since they are packaged individually in foil wrappers, consumers can take the teas wherever they go. Suggested retail price for 20 tea bags is $2.99.
