The Australian brand, PERKii, has just launched a range of all new, 100% plant based Sparkling Probiotic Drinks with Coles Express stores nation wide. ‘PERKii Sparkling‘ is the latest and greatest probiotic beverage, bottled with up to 1 billion plant based probiotics and is blended together with natural flavours.
The PERKii brand’s point of difference is its Targeted Release Probiotics, which are micro-shielded to resist any stomach acid, for a targeted in gut release of probiotics. PERKii Sparkling beverages contain the probiotic ‘Bifidobacterium’, being the world’s best documented strain.
About PERKii Sparkling:
PERKii Sparkling uses micro-shield technology for a targeted in-gut release of effective probiotics, which are protected and nourished inside a natural alginate shield. Each probiotic is equipped to resist stomach acid and survive the journey to your gut, for a difference you can truly feel. The drinks are available in either Still, or Sparkling with natural flavours.
The Coles Express launch includes two all natural sparkling flavours, which can be found sitting in the chilled aisles, as popular non-fermented alternatives to kombucha. The flavours include;
- Orange, Mango and Passionfruit
- Watermelon, Mint and Cucumber
PERKii is also excited to announce the introduction of its ‘Tropical Splash Probiotic Drink’ into Coles Express stores. A flavour that saw strong growth in its first year of trading, ‘Tropical Splash’ is the perfect low sugar drink for the summer months, bottled with billions of targeted release probiotics.
“We’re passionate about the launch of our Sparkling range as it opens up the PERKii technology to even more consumers, being 100% plant-based. We’ve also had incredibly positive feedback from kombucha drinkers, who we know are looking more than ever for credibility in the products they consume.”ANTHONY DAVIE- PERKii Chief Executive Officer
What are probiotics?
You may be asking yourself, what are Probiotics and why are they so important?… Probiotics are simply the live bacteria that is good for you and your digestive system! Probiotics keep the gut healthy and balance out the good and bad bacteria to help the body function and work well.
“At PERKii we believe in better overall health, through better gut health,” PERKii Chief Executive Officer Anthony Davie says. “Our patented micro-shield technology provides resistance against stomach acids, for a targeted in-gut release of probiotics.
The drink’s micro-shield technology is designed to protect probiotics against harmful acids as they travel through the stomach. Once in the lower intestine, the probiotic is released from its micro-shield and attaches to the intestinal wall, where it proliferates.
“People are making active choices to consume products they know can have a tangible benefit on their overall wellbeing… We’ve seen unprecedented growth in the gut health space, as well as a growing awareness for ensuring probiotics survive the journey through the stomach.” – Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Davie
The popular probiotic drink brand was developed at the University of Queensland, which is one of Australia’s leading institutions for scientific innovation. The beverage is currently sold in all Coles, Woolworths and independent supermarkets nation wide, as well a number of other food stores and cafés. Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Davie, says that the brand’s sales have grown exponentially over the past two years with Australians increasingly seeking out drinks that are healthier, tastier and low in sugar.
