NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Amazing Grass™, the nation’s leading brand of plant-based, whole-food powdered supplements and nutrition bars, today announced the addition of three inventive product lines to its growing portfolio of simple and convenient farm-grown greens, including Organic Protein & Kale, Organic Green Powder Smoothie Boosters and Green Superfood Effervescents in Energy and Hydrate Functions. All three product lines are designed to deliver powerful functional nutrition with a blend of familiar ingredients and pioneering superfoods. Attendees of Natural Products Expo West will be among the first to experience the new products and are invited to learn more at booth #1751.
2018 also marks a milestone for the brand’s family farm in Kansas as it has added a new crop, kale, to its annual harvest of cereal grasses. The company’s cornerstone greens – wheat grass, barley grass and alfalfa, and now the nutritional powerhouse kale – are grown on the Amazing Grass family-owned farm. For over three generations, the Kansas-based farm has perfected the growing, harvesting and dehydration of organic greens to ensure optimal nutrient density, resulting in some of the highest-quality leafy greens available on the market.
“We wanted to find a way to help more people integrate the whole leaf nutrition of kale into their daily smoothies and shakes without having to take out the blender,” said Ryan Therriault, vice president of marketing and innovation at Amazing Grass. “In addition to our signature wheat grass, barley grass and alfalfa that we’ve offered from the start, kale has given us the opportunity to expand our green offerings for optimum health and wellness while continuing to expand organic farming in the U.S. The three new product lines deliver on the most important needs that consumers often seek out supplements for, and further the brand’s core mission of delivering plant-based whole-food nutrition in flavors and forms that are simple and easy to enjoy.”
The new supplement lines feature farm fresh greens in three easy to use formats to help people get the whole-food nutrition their bodies need to feel amazing every day.
