|FAIRFIELD, Calif., Sept. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Sport Beans®Energizing Jelly Beans® adds two new flavors to their line-up: Juicy Pear and Green Apple. The additions expand the flavor offering of the world’s first sports performance jelly beans designed for the endurance athlete.
The refreshing Juicy Pear and Green Apple are made with real fruit juices and purees and colors derived from natural sources and are gluten free.
Green Apple Sport Beans has a surprisingly tart and sweet flavor that doesn’t distract the athlete from his or her training. While Juicy Pear is a mouthwatering treat to the taste buds. Both flavors are filled with the right amount of carbohydrates, electrolytes, and vitamins needed for extended exercise of 60 minutes or more.
Juicy Pear and Green Apple join Sport Beans flavors of Lemon Lime, Orange, Berry and Fruit Punch and the Extreme Sport Beans®, a caffeinated variety, available in Pomegranate, Watermelon and Cherry.
The popularity of the Sport Beans jelly beans among cyclists, triathletes, marathon runners and fitness buffs prompted the company to update the Sport Beans jelly beans line with new flavor profiles.
Scientifically formulated for sports performance, Sport Beans jelly beans provide 25 grams of carbohydrates for fuel, electrolytes to maintain fluid balance and vitamins to help burn carbs and fat and protect muscles against oxidative damage.
Consuming carbohydrates and electrolytes during exercise lasting about 60 minutes or longer prevents fatigue and boosts performance, according to many scientific studies and the American College of Sports Medicine, a leading professional organization on sports performance.
Each of the nine flavors of Sport Beans are packaged in 100-calorie single serving packets for portable power before, during and after exercise. The variety provided by nine flavors allows athletes to select a favorite or to enjoy the range, escaping taste monotony.
