CLERMONT, Fla., Sept. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Uncle Matt's Organic®, the nation's #1 selling brand of organic orange juice, is excited to announce the launch of two new offerings for kids: No Sugar Added Lemonade Juice Boxes and No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade Juice Boxes. The shelf-stable line contains zero added sugars, is sweetened with stevia and boosted with 150% DV Vitamin C, plus 25% DV Vitamin D and Zinc for immune support. This lunchbox essential is rolling out now, just in time for back-to-school season, at select retailers nationwide including Whole Foods Market, The Fresh Market and MOM's Organic Market. You can also purchase the juice boxes at Shop.UncleMatts.com.
"As a parent, I am especially excited about the launch of Uncle Matt's Organic® No Sugar Added Lemonade Juice Boxes that are both kid and mom approved," said Susan McLean, VP of Marketing and Innovation at Uncle Matt's Organic®. "These juice box offerings taste delicious and contain 0% added sugar plus have the added benefit and functionality of Vitamins C, D and Zinc for immune support. The Tetra Pak® shelf-stable format is incredibly convenient for lunchboxes and travel as well," she continued.
"So many offerings for kids are still loaded with sugar as well as artificial colors, flavors and ingredients. We are proud to launch an organic beverage option that was carefully crafted with vitamins and antioxidants for added functional and wellness benefits," Susan concluded.
According to the American Heart Association, the average American consumes more than three times the recommended amount of sugar. The number for kids is even worse, as they are consuming 81 grams per day, equaling over 65 pounds of added sugar per year. American children are ingesting over 30 gallons of added sugars from beverages alone.
Finding ways to reduce intake without sacrificing on taste is key. When exploring alternatives to table sugar, the American Heart Association has stated that leaning on natural alternatives to sugar, like stevia, may be your best option. Uncle Matt's Organic® No Sugar Added Lemonade Juice Boxes and No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade Juice Boxes contain organic Reb M Stevia, which delivers the desired, sugar-like sweetness that consumers want, with zero calories, and without the health concerns associated with artificial sweeteners.
Uncle Matt's Organic® No Sugar Added Lemonade Juice Boxes and No Sugar Added Strawberry Lemonade Juice Boxes are now available for an SRP of $4.99 (8-pack of 6.7oz boxes). 1 Year Shelf-Life.
