Stonyfield Launches New B Healthy & B Well, organic yogurts with B &D Vitamins & Omega-3

Stonyfield Farm, the world’s leading organic yogurt company, (www.stonyfield.com), has introduced B-HEALTHY and B-WELL, two delicious fruit-on-the bottom organic yogurts fortified with B & D vitamins plus omega-3.

“B-Healthy and B-Well offer all of the taste and nutritional benefits of delicious Stonyfield organic yogurt plus the added benefits of the B vitamins we need for everyday health,” said Gary Hirshberg, Stonyfield CE-Yo. “So much food is filled with ‘empty calories’ and this delicious duo is just the opposite--a nutrient-dense treat for relatively few calories.”

B-Healthy and B-Well offer essential B vitamins which regenerate the body’s cells in unique combinations of health-supporting organic ingredients and delicious fruit flavors:

(1) B-HEALTHY provides an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. One serving offers 32 mg of EPA and DHA, a potent omega-3 combination that may lower the risk of chronic diseases ( heart disease, cancer, arthritis,) reduces inflammation, lowers triglycerides (fat), and improves blood pressure. One serving delivers 20 percent of the recommended daily value of omega-3 (160 mg./day). Available in delicious Strawberry Acai flavor. (Ask for Stonyfield’s recipes that offer the other 80 percent daily value of omega-3.)

B-Healthy also provides three B vitamins : B3 (Niacin), which is used in energy production, growth and all cell functions; B5 (Pantothenic acid), which is essential to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats; and B-12, which helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells.

(2) B-WELL features a delicious Berry Harvest fruit-on-the-bottom treat made from cranberry, blueberry and raspberry. It contains three immunity enhancers - Vitamin B6, live probiotic cultures, and vitamin D. Vitamin D also helps to maintain Calcium balance

B-Healthy and B-Well provide 4 grams protein and only 1 gram fat per 4-ounce cup, and are low-calorie (80 Berry Harvest, 90 Strawberry Acai) Look for them over the summer in natural food stores and leading supermarkets for a suggested retail price of $2.49 per pack.
