First of Kind Sports Drink – Break Through for Athletes

“A beverage that was developed with “natural” ingredients accelerates an athlete’s recovery from workouts, practices and competitions”

 

Ridgefield, WA, October 28, 2014 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 2MAC, created by an athlete 60 years young, uses natural ingredients to restore the energy and hydration generators depleted during high intensity competition or practice. The greatest chapter in this story may be that there are no chemicals required to achieve this result.

“We were tired of using sugary, salty, artificial tasting drinks as a recovery beverage after a workout. As athletes we wanted something that really did taste great, contained no artificial additives and restored the amino acids, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals we burned while exercising. The drinks on the market were missing the big picture as they were too narrowly focused on remedies for one or two segments of this equation. It was very frustrating,” said development director, Mike McDaniel at 2MAC’s Vancouver, Washington headquarters.

The body does not restore these elements on its own, they must be consumed. The longer a person waits to recharge their body the longer their recovery time will be. Waiting to resupply lost nutrients reduces the benefits from a workout or extends the recovery time from an event. While consuming water or a high sugar and salt sports drink will cure a roaring thirst, that alone will not remedy the more important issue of depleted nutrients and body reserves. These elements must be replaced to rejuvenate muscles and energy.

“2MAC’s formulas, which are characterized by a great taste profile, are designed to be absorbed rapidly into an athlete’s system, reduce muscle inflammation and oxidative stress while minimizing insulin release. To effectively reverse the effects of physical stress, 2MAC should consumed during, or within 30 minutes of ending, the exercise period,” McDaniel stated.

Introducing 2MAC to a sports drink market that is defined by long entrenched brands is a challenging task. That is why 2MAC has decided to seek funding in two stages through the Kickstarter process which features an all or nothing model. Stage one is designed to verify taste demographics while a stage two Kickstarter campaign will be utilized to launch a nationwide rollout of the product. Be sure to follow us at the following Kickstarter link. Those who pledge will be among the first to experience the benefits of this natural solution to dehydration and nutrient loss.

Nutrit Meal Replacement To Start Crowdsource Campaign

We are pleased to announce that Nutrit Meal Replacement is starting a Crowdtilt Campaign for its initial production run.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Find out more at our site; www.nutritmr.com and get involved at:https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/nutrit.
Only with your help can we bring this truly novel product to market and the world.

Golden Spoon Unveils New Website to Revitalize Brand

Golden Spoon, the popular Southern California frozen yogurt company, unveiled their hip new website highlighting the chain’s Southern California roots, it’s famous creamy taste, and even the frozen yogurt’s health benefits. “ We’ve only just begun to renew our brand and bring it back to life; the website is a reflection of what is to come,” said Golden Spoon’s CEO Roger Clawson.

Golden Spoon is Southern California’s original frozen yogurt. The look of the new website is simple and fresh, just like their ingredients, with classic Southern California beach images highlighting Golden Spoon’s heritage. It started in 1981 as a remodel of a health food store in Tustin, California, and has grown into a worldwide brand with an extremely loyal following. You can read all about the journey in the “About Us” section on the site.

The website spotlights the healthy attributes of Golden Spoon’s product made with real fruit and real milk , including full nutritional information for both low-fat and non-fat flavors. Another handy feature allows you to compare the nutritional value of Golden Spoon frozen yogurt to other foods such as ice cream, granola bars and smoothies.

The website is also a great place to find out about new flavors and new additions, like thenew eco-friendly yogurt cups, which biodegrade in only 21 days. Along with the new design and eco-friendly cups, Golden Spoon is also introducing a revolutionary new pricing method, one without scales. Most competing frozen yogurt stores provide one over-sized cup for customers to fill with yogurt and toppings, and the cup is priced based on the total weight. You never know what your dessert will cost you until it is too late, and it’s very easy to go over-budget.

Golden Spoon is changing all that with an innovative, industry-first pricing structure they have trademarked as “Weightless Pricing.” Customers pay a single, fixed price for one of three cup sizes, then fill it with as much yogurt and as many toppings as they wish. Three stores, including Irvine, La Costa and Carlsbad, will launch the new store concept on May 12, 2012 with free yogurt all day.

And, if all the flavors and toppings are not enough variety, customers can also choose their service level. Tell a Golden Spoon “concierge” employee what you have in mind, and then relax as they swirl your yogurt and bring it to your table. Or, you can opt for a “hands-on” experience and create your own masterpiece.

“My father, Jeff Barnes, is the founder of Golden Spoon.  Since I can remember, the stores have always looked the same,” said Reed Barnes, Golden Spoon’s Director of Training.  “As an

owner of two stores, including the original Golden Spoon location in Lake Forest, I love the new direction, the new look and the new store concept.  It couldn’t be a better time to be a part of Golden Spoon Franchising.”

Golden Spoon Expands To Qatar

Golden Spoon Franchising, the franchising arm of the largest frozen yogurt brand in Southern California, announced the signing of an agreement with the M.H. Al Mana Group of Companies to develop the Golden Spoon franchise throughout Qatar. The agreement is for the opening of eight or more stores over the next five years. Three stores are currently open in the Doha market area with five more to follow. The fourth location is expected to be open by April 30th with two more slated for the end of June 2012. The final two will open by the end of August 2012 for a total of eight stores.

“Signing the agreement to enter the Qatar market demonstrates our commitment to make Golden Spoon a leading global brand,” said Golden Spoon Franchising CEO Roger Clawson. “Our successful launch into Japan and the Philippines helped validate Golden Spoon’s international expansion into the Middle East Region and built our brand’s exposure worldwide. We look forward to replicating that success in Qatar with the M.H. AL Mana Group and throughout the GCC with other professional, multi-unit franchise developer groups.” Clawson said he plans to continue the health-conscious frozen yogurt brand’s worldwide expansion by signing master franchise agreements in the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait within the next 12 months. Golden Spoon also has its sights on key markets in Asia such as China, India and Vietnam.

“Golden Spoon is the only worldwide brand selling authentic frozen yogurt. Unlike most of our worldwide competitors, we insist that all of our products are produced and shipped from our dairy. The rest of the industry falls short by generally serving a reconstituted powdered mix that attempts to taste like their original U.S. product. The difference in taste, quality and overall value has set us apart for almost 30 years. One taste and you will know why we have led the industry since 1983,” said Clawson.

“Signing with the M.H. Almana Group of Companies is a great win for Golden Spoon,” Clawson said. A proven multi-unit developer and operator, the M.H. Almana Group of Companies has already developed a famous U.S. restaurant brand in Qatar. The M.H. Almana Group of Companies has many years of successful experience in retail operations. “We explored many franchising opportunities to add to the M.H. Almana Group of Companies family, and Golden Spoon matched well with our focus on bringing in brands that will be of value to the people in Qatar,” Abdulaziz Al Mana stated. “We feel Golden Spoon’s focus on local communities and its commitment to providing premium products at a great price creates an opportunity that is too good to pass up.” Golden Spoon’s community-centric focus adapts their model and flavors to fit varying cultures across the globe, all while maintaining a consistent and credible quality product.

When asked if any flavors would be developed to cater to the local taste palette, Clawson said apricot and additional regionally popular flavors would soon be added to the current menu. “However, we anticipate that our traditional Western flavors will also be popular.”

Perlage Systems, Inc. To Release Cocktail Carbonating System

On July 20th, Perlage Systems, Inc. will launch the Perlini Cocktail Carbonating System, at New Orleans’ Tales of the Cocktail. Perlini is the first and only carbonation product designed by and for professional bartenders, specifically for use in commercial environments, and specifically tailored to the needs of bars and restaurants.

“The craft of making cocktails has been around for over two centuries, so it’s rare when something comes along that is entirely new,” says Jamie Boudreau, noted mixologist.” Perlini is that rare, truly revolutionary product. Perlini gives us a whole new set of techniques, flavors, and textures to work with , and that is very exciting to the profession.”

Currently, sparkling cocktails are created by the addition of an effervescent component, like soda or Champagne. This results in a lightly carbonated drink that is diluted by that added carbonated beverage. Perlini, by contrast, infuses all the ingredients in the drink with effervescence —including the alcohol– creating a vigorously sparkling cocktail with persistent bubbles, as with a fine Champagne.  Perlini create s a multitude of unexplored options by using carbonation to create an entirely new category of cocktail.

“In 2004, on a whim, I showed the owners of the ZigZag Café in Seattle how to make a sparkling Cosmopolitan with an early prototype of the Perlage Champagne Preservation System,” says Evan Wallace, founder and president of Perlage Systems, Inc. It was kind of meant as a joke, but t hey just about flipped. Their enthusiasm spurred us to start working on a device specifically designed to carbonate cocktails, and that’s how the Perlini concept was born,” “Perlini was conceived in a bar, and we designed it from the ground up with constant input and feedback from professional bartenders to create the perfect tool—one that would work in the chaotic environment of a busy bar without impacting the traditional workflow of cocktail production.”

Even beyond the realm of mixology, the Perlini has a multitude of uses in the workplace as well as in the home. With its commercial and home versions, this product allows anyone and everyone to get in touch with their creative side. Chefs are finding dozens of uses for this device ranging from carbonating garnishes and marinating chicken, to creating sauces and more . From creating your own sparkling water, to carbonating cocktails, juices and even your coffee, there is an infinite number of possible concoctions—limited only by the imagination.

Perlini retails for $199 and comes with shaker, pressurizing filler, and 12 CO2 cartridges in an aluminum attaché case.

World Panda Healthy Herbal Drink (Panda Sober Drink)

“World Panda Healthy Herbal Drink” (Panda Sober Drink), a very inspirational Sober-upproduct, is Dr. Chao’s own patented product that comes from a line of 130-year-old formulas developed and first used by Dr. Chao’s ancestors back in 1878. This 100% all-natural herbal beverage is manufactured in the state of Wisconsin, and has been certified by the National Food Laboratory of America to be sugar-free, calorie-free, caffeine-free, contains no preservatives and no artificial sweeteners of any kind.

Consuming alcohol may cause headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, unclear mind, uncomfortable stomach, thirstiness, and a bitter taste, and can also cause severe headache, stomach ache, loss of appetite, and a lethargic feeling from a previous night of alcohol consumption.

Drinking 1 to 3 cans of Panda Drink before consuming alcohol, or mixing it with alcohol, will allow individuals to drink three times more alcohol without getting drunk and dizzy.

When drunk, drinking 3 to 5 cans of Panda Drink will allow individuals to quickly recover from alcohol intoxication within three hours, relieving the symptoms of headache, dizziness, vomiting, thirstiness, and clearing the bitter taste, as well as avoiding a severe headache the next day. This drink enables the individual to restore his or her natural state of mind, so that they can function normally the next day.

The herbs in the Panda Drink contain special enzymes that help alcohol dehydrogenase break down alcohol quicker, then quickly convert the alcohol to harmless water and carbon dioxide and thus can be discharged rapidly through urine. At the same time, the herbs of Panda Drink help to balance the functions of the liver and the heart, improve the metabolism of cerebrum cells, and increase the cells’ absorption rate of oxygen. According to Dr.Chao’s expertise, people can avoid the harm from alcohol and won’t get drunk if alcohol can be converted into harmless water and carbon dioxide quickly. Therefore, drinking with Panda Drink will help people keep a clear head even when drinking great quantities of alcohol.

In order to expand our service, we are looking for business partner who has the financial capability and sales experience in the beverage industry to join the company’s management team.

For more information on the sober up drink, and to purchase it, please call U.S. PANDA FOODS & BEVERAGES INC. at 1-877-237-2426.
