Fortified, ready-to-drink milk product is shelf stable at room temperature for one year

Nutri-kids have launched the first and only ready-to-drink milk product to be fortified with healthy DHA omega-3 and fiber. Nutri-Kids nutrition-2-go ready-to-drink milk product is low in sugar, low in fat, fortified with Vitamins A, D and C and is a great source of calcium and protein.

The product provides a solution that fits parents’ busy lifestyles because it doesn’t need refrigeration and has a 12-month shelf life. A great take-along that’s convenient and portable, this is the first product of its kind to hit the market place. Kids can have them in their school lunches, in the car, at home and at all their activities after-school and on weekends, making nutrition-2-go a great solution for kids on the go.

Nutrition-2-go is fortified with life’s DHA from Martek Biosciences. Life’s DHA is a vegetarian source of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) omega-3, a long chain omega-3 fatty acid that supports brain, eye and cardiovascular health throughout life. Martek’s life’s DHA is unique in the market because it is derived from a sustainable and vegetarian source. Made from microalgae under tightly controlled manufacturing conditions, life’s DHA is free of oceanic contaminants that may be present in certain fish or fish oils.

There is a large and growing body of scientific evidence demonstrating that people of all ages, from infants to aging adults, benefit from an adequate supply of DHA omega-3 in the diet. Additionally, recent research indicates that consumption of DHA omega-3 may help improve the attention spans of children and be beneficial to children with DHA. Yet despite its importance, natural food sources of DHA omega-3 are limited causing North American children to have among the lowest dietary intakes of DHA omega-3 in the world. Nutri-Kids nutrition-2-go is a great way to get more of this essential nutrient into kid’s diets.

Nutrition-2-go comes in two great flavors, Chocolate Chug and S-Berry Blast (Strawberry). It is available in portable and convenient 8 oz. and 11 oz. recyclable aluminum cans.  The 11 oz. size is available in 4 packs and 24 packs. nutrition-2-go will be available at grocery and nutrition food retailers nationwide.
