Low Sugar, Low Calorie, Probiotic drink
Developed at the University of Queensland, PERKii provides an unbeatable combination of taste and gut health goodness. Powered by world first technology, PERKii has a uniquely noncarbonated and fermentation free (non-bitter) taste profile, and has a proven incremental sales benefit to the functional beverage, kombucha and fermented milk market. It combines its appealing fruit flavours with a low sugar, low calorie (26) serve of 1 billion probiotics in every bottle.
The functional beverage market is the fastest growing category in Australia, with consumers increasingly looking for an active ingredient to complement their preferred taste experience. With such a wide variety of offerings, it’s important that your beverage range provides both an ethical benefit but also complements each other, driving incremental sales, not cannibalisation. PERKii is back up by world-class science to provide a point of difference and help grow your sales.
The gastrointestinal tract (your gut) contains 70% of your immune system, and science tells us probiotics, the good bacteria, are like nature’s own little superheroes fighting the good fight on our insides. Unfortunately, most probiotic drinks are heavy on the sugar, or they’re bitter in flavour due to the fermentation with little to no living goodness remaining in them by the time they’re consumed.
Utilising the University of Queensland’s patented encapsulating technology ProGel™, PERKii are able to create a drink that delivers a:
- noncarbonated and fermentation free drink, creating a bitter-free taste and fruit flavours, for a wider appeal;
- guaranteed 1 billion active CFU (lactobacillus casei [Lc431]) in every bottle and protect them through the stomach acids;
- low calorie (26)/low sugar combination that appeals to the wider health-conscious drinker;
- lactose and gluten free option to cater for the growing market.
