airforce Nutrisoda Arrives & Seattle is Refreshed


September 6, 2007. It soars like a Boeing. It's smart like Microsoft. It helps get you places like Expedia. And it's crisper than a Washington state apple. Meet Seattle's newest citizen: airforce Nutrisoda - the "Good Soda" that combines leading-edge nutrients with natural fruit flavors, natural colors, and water filtered four times for extra purity to elevate your expectations of what a soda can be, and do.

Available at Seattle-area QFC supermarkets, select Target stores and select Wal-Mart Supercenter locations, all eight Nutrisoda varieties deliver specific wellness benefits for on-the-go, nutritionally aware people. Anchoring the airforce Nutrisoda line is tangerine-lime Immune Nutrisoda - a lightly carbonated, crisply effervescent soda packed with vitamins and minerals to help build up the body's immune defenses, boost antigen response and keep you healthy.

Other brand offerings include:

• Watermelon-blueberry Renew - to help you feel replenished, rejuvenated and refreshed.
• Pomegranate-black berry Radiant - to maintain and support your skin's natural elasticity and firmness.
• Wild berry-citron Calm - to help you stay relaxed and naturally energized.
• Mango-peach Focus - to help maintain and support mental alertness and concentration.
• Black cherry-apple Flex - to help support active joint mobility.
• Mandarin-mint Energize - to help recharge your batteries and boost your energy levels.
• Pink grapefruit-guava Slender - to help you healthily manage your weight.

Just as important as what's in each can, is what isn't in there: airforce Nutrisodas have zero sugar, zero aspartame, zero sodium, and zero to few calories.

"Seattle is the paradigm of a health and wellness-conscious city, and Nutrisoda satisfies consumers' demand for a soda that fits their progressive lifestyle," says Joe Heron, creator of Nutrisoda and founder of Ardea Beverage Company.

Seattle Chefs Choose Intelligent Refreshment

Even before its official arrival in Seattle, Nutrisoda has been eagerly embraced by Seattle's favorite chefs.

"Nutrisoda is a great alternative to wine pairing with food. I have paired Nutrisoda with sashimi-type dishes and light salads," says Chef Rodelio Aglibot, executive chef of Seattle's soon-to-open L'Orient restaurant.

In finer restaurants nationwide, great chefs are serving the Good Soda. The light, refreshingly carbonated taste is the perfect accompaniment to good food. And delicious blends of natural fruit flavors have inspired an exciting new generation of cocktails, mocktails and smoothies. For creative concoctions, visit www.Nutrisoda.com/mixology.asp.     

The Smart Choice for Students Too

Educators and nutritionists have also welcomed Nutrisoda as a healthy and delicious option for kids. Recognizing the nutritional value of the Good Soda, the USDA has exempted six varieties from restrictions on school sales. The USDA’s action coincides with the release of a recent controlled case study in which 200 7th graders who drank nutrient-enhanced Focus Nutrisoda improved standardized test results on average of 8.9 percent over test results from their previous school year. Mango-Peach flavored Focus Nutrisoda helps returning students get off on the right foot with its unique combination of nutrients designed to improve mental alertness and concentration. Details on the Focus Study are available at www.nutrisoda.com/schools.
