Excellent Source of Omega-3s EPA/DHA and 170% Daily Requirement of Vitamin E

PARAMUS, N.J., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smart Balance, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMBL) today announced that it will launch Smart Balance(TM) Milk in supermarkets in the New York City and Albany metro areas and New England during the first quarter of 2009.

"We create products for health-conscious consumers who are in pursuit of delicious, flavorful food," said Greg Venner, executive vice president and chief consumer officer for Smart Balance, Inc. "Our milk comes in fat-free and 1% lowfat varieties -- all with added nutritional benefits. We think 2% drinkers will enjoy the creaminess of our fat-free varieties and whole milk drinkers will like the rich, creamy taste and lower fat content of our 1% lowfat varieties."

Smart Balance(TM) Milk, with no hormones added and no antibiotics,* is available in four varieties. The fat-free varieties have been developed to taste rich and creamy like 2%, and the 1% lowfat varieties have been formulated to taste as rich and creamy as whole milk.

** Foods containing at least 400mg per serving of plant sterols eaten twice a day with meals for a daily total intake of at least 800mg, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.
