Heading into the busy holiday season, Two Good introduced a line of three new Smoothies made with real fruit puree and no artificial sweeteners, it says.
Two Good, a brand of Danone North America, White Plains, N.Y., points out that the delicious cultured dairy drinks are not only lower in sugar and high in protein, but every bottle sold helps to feed someone in need.
With 80% less sugar than the average cultured dairy drink, Two Good Smoothies are the first in its category to have 3 grams of sugar per 7-ounce bottle. To achieve lower sugar, the company points out that it uses ultra-filtered milk that removes most of the naturally occurring sugars from milk. It also utilizes live cultures for fermentation, it adds.
Available in three delicious flavors, Mixed Berry, Strawberry Banana and Peach, Two Good Smoothies have 10 grams of protein, 0 grams of added sugar with no artificial sweeteners, 5 grams of carbs and are non-GMO Project Verified.
“As more consumers look for products in the yogurt drinks segment to meet their on-the-go lifestyle and lower sugar needs, we saw an opportunity to launch a new product to deliver on those growing needs,” says Surbhi Martin, vice president of marketing, Greek Yogurt & Functional Wellness at Danone North America. “Since our launch as a brand, we've been proud to offer delicious products with significantly lower sugar, and we're excited to expand our portfolio and introduce our latest innovation, Two Good Smoothies, which offer consumers a portable and delicious cultured dairy drink with only 3 grams of sugar compared to the category average of 19 grams.”
Not only do the smoothies taste good, they also do good too, particularly as 34 million Americans are facing food insecurity. Two Good partners with two food rescue organizations, City Harvest of New York City, and We Don't Waste of Denver, Colo., to help fight food insecurity and food waste.
With every purchase of Two Good, including smoothies, a donation is made to help keep good food from going to waste and get it to people that need it the most. To date, Two Good has donated over 40 million meals and counting, it says.
Two Good Smoothies are available in the yogurt aisle of select grocery stores and retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $1.89 per 7-ounce bottle.
