The man behind Silk soymilk is entering the probiotic sector through his new company, NextFoods. Where else would Steve Demos make his base—no, not California, but Boulder, Colorado. NextFoods is a new venture whose main product, at present, is Good Belly, a vegan, wheat-free and soy-free drink meant for daily use to promote probiotics, or good bacteria.
Good Belly is similar to common probiotic drinks in the Western European market, which according to Demos, often use a strain called Lp299v. The drinks reportedly “strengthen and promote digestive regularity and immunity functions.” The quart size cartons come in black currant, cranberry watermelon and mango, our favorite flavor. The individual-size drinks come in blueberry acai, strawberry rosehips and peach mango.
A 4-pack of 2.7-ounce single serving drinks retails for about $4.49. The 32-ounce quart size retails for about $3.99. Products are available at Whole Foods, Wegmans and Publix. To learn more about Good Belly, , visit the Good Belly website.
