Smart Cups

Beverage innovation is possible, too

Smart Cups Technology, a proprietary process, allows Smart Cups, L.L.C., Mission Viejo, Calif., to 3-D print Katalyxt, or microencapsulated ingredients that provide flavor and energy. The company incorporates the Katalyxt into the bottom of its Smart Cups. Adding water unleashes the ingredients, turning the product into an energy drink with no calories or carbohydrates.

The drinks come in four flavors: “tropical recess” features pineapple, coconut and lemon lime; “pucker up brain boost” features lemonade and berry flavors; “magna cum latte” blends coffee taste with latte; and “nerdy lemon-T” blends tea lemonade and fruit flavors.
