Essential fruit and veg on-the-go

Vegesentials has launched the first 3/5 a day raw vegetable and fruit drinks in Whole Foods Market stores in the UK.

An extension of its Fresh Kids on-the-go and Half Fruit-Half Vegetable blends, the Vegesentials 3 on-the-go range provides a fruit and veg drink made from 100% pure, raw, cold-pressed ingredients with no preservatives or ascorbic acid.

The range currently comprises two varieties: Beetroot, Apple & Carrot Smoothie (with ginger); and Carrot, Pear & Kale Smoothie (with ginger).

The Vegesentials 3 on-the-go offer aims to make it easier for busy customers to achieve their five-a-day consumption while on the move as well as providing a good balance of fruit and veg health benefits.

The nutrients gained from the drinks include potassium to support healthy blood pressure and muscular function along with vitamin A for skin health, B6, and C to help support a healthy immune system.

The drinks are available in 330ml bottles.
