Archived: Healthy Soda, Inc./Chill Low Glycemic Organic Soda

iCrowdNewswire - Aug 20, 2015

Quick Pitch

Soda has been vilified, many believe rightfully so, as one of the greatest threats to public health. Why is soda so much worse than other culprits? Because it’s so popular, people love it, and they have been conditioned to drink it regularly for over a century now. The problem is, all current varieties of traditional soda, be them regular or diet, are fraught with health concerns.

The idea for a healthy soda came about when our founder’s sister, a teacher, saw traditional sodas being taken out of schools. They were exchanged with other beverages that were still full of sugar and had just as many, if not more, calories than the soda they replaced. Someone needed to come up with a better alternative. We knew the big soda guys would never bring to market something that competed directly with their core business, so it was up to us to make a truly healthy soda.

Making a great tasting healthy soda wasn’t easy. We had to completely invent a new proprietary sweetening system, incorporate functional benefits that speak to the needs of today, and do everything to the highest standards to meet the requirements for USDA Organic and Kosher certification. We are very proud of our product, answering a need that is woefully unmet in the marketplace.


Product/Service Details

Our signature product, Chill Low Glycemic Organic Soda, currently had four flavors: “Guava”, “Kola”, “Limon”, and “Pome”. Offering two traditional flavors (cola and lemon lime) and two new flavors (guava and pomegranate), provides optimum variety.

Functional benefit descriptions: LOW GLYCEMIC no sugar rush for balanced energy levels & appetite control, with no high fructose corn syrup or simple sugars; ORGANIC nothing artificial and no preservatives; ANTIOXIDANTS high in antioxidant beta-carotene and vitamin c to fight free radicals; LOW CALORIE only 50 calories; VITAMINS ABC&D for energy and immunity, plus potassium to replace electrolytes.
