SPARTA, MICH. — Old Orchard is introducing an acai berry blend to its Healthy Balance line of juices.
"Like the blueberry and the black currant berry before it, acai is a rich, dark-colored super fruit that is packaged with nutritional value," said Mark Saur, president and founder of Old Orchard Brands. "The challenge for the consumer has been how to reap the health benefits of the fruit while keeping calories and sugar intake low. The Healthy Balance line was designed specifically to address that challenge, and the new Pomegranate Blueberry Acai fits perfectly with a healthy lifestyle and diet."
The juice has 29 calories for every 8 oz serving, and is available at grocery stores nationwide for $2.69 for a 64-oz bottle.
The Healthy Balance line is preservative-free, contains no artificial flavors or colorings and is fortified with 100% of the daily requirement of vitamin C.
