LAKEVILLE-MIDDLEBORO, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--We are all trying to make healthier choices each day. One small step you can make towards a better you is drinking more water. PACt™ cranberry extract water kicks off the next generation of Ocean Spray® products that harness the power of the cranberry in a refreshing new way. PACt™ water contains PACs, or proanthocyanidins – powerful elements found deep inside cranberries, to help cleanse and purify your body better than water alone.*
“Consumers are looking to hydrate in a more meaningful way. They want beverages that offer true functional benefits," said Ken Romanzi, Chief Operating Officer of Global Brands at Ocean Spray. “With the launch of PACt™ cranberry extract water, we’ve created an even better water that harnesses the unique power of the cranberry through a breakthrough cranberry extract innovation, 10 years in the making. PACt™ water contains the cleansing and purifying benefits of the cranberry without all the sugar and calories.”
The Power Behind PACt™ Water
The power of PACt™ cranberry extract water lies in the 80 milligrams of PACs, or proanthocyanidins, found inside every 16-ounce, single serve bottle. PACs are natural elements found in cranberries that contain unique A-type PACs, which help cleanse and purify the body by allowing certain harmful bacteria to be flushed away naturally.
“We found a way to concentrate the unique health-promoting elements found deep inside the cranberry through the development of a cranberry extract made with a patent-pending process,” said Christina Khoo, PhD, Director of Research Sciences, Ocean Spray.
The Goodness Inside PACt™ Water
Made with just 7 ingredients including purified water, 80 milligrams of unique cranberry PACs, natural sweeteners agave nectar, stevia, monkfruit extract, natural fruit flavors, and sea salt, PACt™ water provides a simple way to hydrate with health benefits of the cranberry and is a smart step you can take each day towards a healthier you. With only 10 calories per serving and the power of the cranberry, it’s proof that water gets better when it’s a little redder.

You can find PACt™ cranberry extract water in the water aisle at major retailers in California and Nevada and online. Beginning in 2015, PACt™ water will be available nationwide.
