Frulatte Foods has launched a new range of convenient and nutritional smoothies offering people a healthy alternative to traditional fast food. The drinks are designed to offer an energy boost and supply a range of important nutrients, and are low in calories.
The smoothies come in six flavours - Milk Chocolate, Strawberry-Kiwi, Orange-Mango, Mocha Cappuccino, Cranberry-Raspberry and Lemon Crème - and are either fat free or low fat. Each contains 50 per cent of the recommended daily requirement of calcium and delivers 10 grams of protein, including 5 grams from non-genetically modified soy protein.
The company said that each smoothie contains the protein equal to two eggs, the calcium of 1-1/2 cups of milk (50 per cent of the recommended daily requirement), fibre, folic acid, vitamins C, D and E and other minerals, and 15 per cent of the daily value for zinc and selenium (two key antioxidant minerals).
California-based Frulatte Foods is a division of INOBYS, itself the consumer products subsidiary of Yamanouchi Consumer, the US-based consumer products subsidiary of Yamanouchi Pharmaceuticals of Japan.
