Product Healthy, low calorie, flavoured drinks with active probiotics

PERKii logoOverview

PERKii offers consumers an option of probiotics benefits to control weight, improve gut health and boost immunity with 1 billion live (world credentialed strain LC431) Lactobacillus Casei in a refreshing, light and great tasting low calorie drink.

Utilising the patented ProGel technology, PERKii protects and improves probiotic stability by encapsulating them in tiny natural beads called Microgels.

Microgels keep the probiotics alive in drinks and the acidic stomach to maximise the probiotic benefits for consumers.

The encapsulation has the commercial benefit of prolonging shelf-life, resulting in an 18-week (4-month) retail window.

In addition, the technology also allows a greater taste profile option due to the control of fermentation, avoiding high sugar and the bitterness found in competitors.

PERKii currently comes in 5 delicious flavours:

  • Raspberry & Pomegranate
  • Elderflower & Green Tea
  • Lime & Coconut
  • Strawberry & Watermelon
  • and Mango & Passionfruit

NPD includes flavour extensions and limited editions, sparkling formats, fruit and vegetable juice formats as well as ice cream and milk variants.
