DERRY, N.H., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MegaFood™, a pioneer in the natural supplement category, today announces its entry into fortified foods through its partnership with premium organic juice producer, Uncle Matt's Organic, a Florida-based, family-owned company offering premium quality organic juices and organic produce. This product offering was a natural partnership, as Uncle Matt's Organic currently supplies MegaFood with the oranges used for its Ultra C-400, Complex C and Daily C Protect nutritional supplements.
Containing 500 mg. of turmeric per serving, the Organic Orange Turmeric juice featuring MegaFood turmeric is a convenient and delicious way to add more turmeric into your daily diet. Turmeric is known for its health-promoting properties and pairs nicely with Uncle Matt's organic orange juice. The Orange Turmeric juice also contains GanedenBC30's 1 billion living probiotic cells per 8 oz. serving and 120% of the RDV for Vitamin C.
"This product partnership represents a first-time entry into the fortified food space for MegaFood, which we see as a very promising, long-term opportunity for the company," explained Robert Craven, MegaFood CEO. "Given our one-of-a-kind process of harvesting real food supplements, it's very much an offering and a value that's unique to us in the industry. This product extension also opens up important new avenues for us in terms of introducing the MegaFood brand to consumers who may be unfamiliar with who we are, and what we do."
MegaFood believes in delivering supplements that are as close to the intention of food as possible and is committed to sourcing farm fresh produce directly from local farmers. MegaFood is one of the only supplement manufacturers to create individual nutrients in-house, using its proprietary Slo-Food Process™ to deliver a supplement like no other available. In fact, anyone can watch this process live at megafood.com/livecams.
"MegaFood believes that whole food is the best food, and our turmeric is no exception," said Stacey Gillespie, MegaFood Director of New Products. "Sourced from an organic farmer in Hawaii, our turmeric is a brain-boosting powerhouse of a spice, known for its disease-fighting benefits and its ability to help support healthy whole body inflammation."*
"We know our consumers will love this juice, in no small part because of the nutritional boost provided by MegaFood's turmeric," said Matt McLean, CEO of Uncle Matt's Organic. "MegaFood has been a wonderful partner to us for these last two years, and we look forward to what the future has in store for this product."
Offered in family-friendly BPA-free 59 oz. packaging, Uncle Matt's Organic Orange Turmeric juice is gluten-free and has no added ingredients, flavors, or preservatives. And as with all of Uncle Matt's products, each is grown and produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
