Drink Spotlight: Vikwäl Nordic Smoothie

 

Vikwäl Nordic Smoothie is a delicious dairy smoothie, light tasting and very fruity, gourmand and natural, energizing and low in calories.
It’s a tasty drink, healthy and nutritionally balanced thanks to its ingredients including proteins, dietary fiber and a special mix of vitamins and minerals.

An ancient Nordic recipe, it doesn’t have any added sugar and contains even less naturally occurring fruit sugars than an average smoothie and tastes much lighter than a drinkable yoghurt.

vikwäl is perfect as a nourishing and easy breakfast on-the-go. It’s great with a salad or sandwich to get through the lunchtime and a healthy afternoon snack when hunger bites. It’s also great to get some energy and cut hunger before hitting the gym without feeling too heavy.

 

 

About vikwäl:

“Parisian by adoption, I was struggling here to find healthy, easy and tasty on-the-go foods, something else than a traditional croissant or a chocolate bar. I was inspired by an ancient Nordic recipe of my grandma back in Estonia. I combined the idea with the French lifestyle, got some help from the nutritionists and revisited this delicious experience from my childhood in a modern and healthy manner, suitable for urban environment. Here’s the result: these light-tasting but nutritionally dense tasty Nordic smoothies. All this to help you to feel fit and perk you up 24/7.”
- Urmas Väljaots

Product Spotlight: Värska Pluss Gooseberry

 

Värska’s sand dunes and open forests are a good place to ponder life, and also hold their share of surprises. That’s Värska Pluss flavoured water for you, which has that quality we have come to associate with Värska water, but as a surprise, a flavour nuance has been added. It is like a handful of juicy berries from a home garden has been added to the clean ground water, which makes Värska Pluss flavoured water especially good. So good in fact that there was no reason to add carbonation. Värska people know what keeps the spirit and mind fresh!

The brand-new Värska Pluss Gooseberry is a lightly sweetened, non-carbonated drinking water with real gooseberry flavour.

airan mint

Product Spotlight: Airan Mint Fermented Milk Drink

 

Airan has many “relatives”, including kefir, matzoon and yoghurt. Yet Airan has a clearly distinguishing feature, too.

Active bacteria

Airan 2LIFE contains the active soured-milk Lactobacillus bulgaricus bacteria ensuring a very high level of biochemical activity in the product. A special technology was developed to strengthen this activity with the corresponding health-improving effect. During ripening, conditions are created for bacteria activation, resulting in fermentation and emission of gas.

It is this natural gas content that makes Airan 2LIFE special in comparison to any classic soured milk beverage.

NB! Airan 2LIFE is produced without any preservatives.
Acid bacteria synthesise natural antioxidants that ensure the product’s biological activeness without any chemical additives for the whole duration of the shelf life period.

Nutrition Information
100 g of product contains:
Energy value - 19,0 kcal/79,5 kJ
Proteins: 1,1 g
Carbohydrates: 1,4 g
Carbohydrates: 1%

Ingredients: water, whole cream milk powder, salt (0,8%), sour milk bacteria Lactobacillus bulgaricus, natural extract of mint.


History

In Armenia a beverage with Airan properties is called TAN.
The inhabitants of highland villages of Armenia since the ancient times possessed the secret of making TAN. They kept a secret of TAN recipe carefully.
In the middle of the XIX century Russian doctors became interested in the secrets of Caucasian longevity. Doctors concluded that TAN has antibacterial properties and cures many intestinal diseases perfectly.

Water bottle band notifies users if they need to drink more

Jomi Interactive has created a smart Bluetooth device that alerts users if they’re not drinking enough water each day.

The Hygenix system has already provided health professionals with a solution for helping them remember to wash their hands regularly. Now Estonia-based startup Jomi Interactive has created a smart device that alerts users if they’re not drinking enough water each day.

According to the UK’s Department of Health, the average person needs to drink around 1.5 liters of water each day to replace the fluids they lose through daily activity. With this in mind, Jomi has developed a band with sensors that fits around a bottle and detects how much water is in it. Using Bluetooth technology, the band sends this information to a companion app on the users’ smartphone throughout the day, calculating how much water they’ve had. If it senses that the user needs to drink some more, a notification is sent to their phone. Jomi has so far made plans for two versions of the device – one that uses a set of scales to weigh the water bottle and a smaller band that features an accelerometer to detect changes in the bottle’s contents – and hopes to fund them with a Kickstarter campaign in the near future.

If Jomi’s creation can help keep consumers healthy by alerting them to potential dehydration, it could also potentially be used to tell drinkers when they’ve had too much alcohol, as well as other health uses. Could the same be done to fight obesity by helping people track the food they eat each day?
