McHENRY, Ill., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Island Soup has launched a new line of Souper Food soups fortified with ingredients shown to have important health benefits, including the high-survivability probiotic, GanedenBC30 (http://www.ganedenlabs.com/index.html).
The new Souper Food soups are powered by the probiotic GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, 6086) (http://www.ganedenlabs.com/ourScience.html), a probiotic that has been shown to survive through a wide variety of food manufacturing and storage conditions. Flavors will include Tortilla con Queso, White Cheddar Asparagus, Southwestern Roasted Corn and Artichoke Parmesan. Turtle Island's Souper Food soups will be available for purchase in smaller specialty food stores and online beginning in July.
"Our goal at Turtle Island is to make all-natural soups that not only taste good, but are good for you and have truly important health benefits," explained Turtle Island President, Jan Berger. "The concept behind 'Souper Food' soups came out of our desire to create quick, healthy eating alternatives for our consumers. And with all the buzz around probiotics, we just knew we had to have a probiotic in our Souper Food soups." Berger added that "Consumers can now get meaningful levels of probiotics outside of yogurts and other refrigerated dairy products.
"We did a lot of talking to a lot of different companies," continued Berger. "Ganeden was the only one that thought it was even possible for their probiotic bacteria to survive our manufacturing process and preparation. After testing GanedenBC30, we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. In our eyes, GanedenBC30 is superior to any other probiotic available in the market."
