Columbia Gorge Organic Offers Two All-Organic, Nutrition Drinks

Protein Cocoa and Super C are the first drinks of their kind to be sourced solely from organic ingredients

Hood River, Ore., September 22, 2009 – Columbia Gorge Organic (CoGo), an all-organic, fresh juice and fruit company, has added two nutritional drinks to their Vitatrition line: Protein Cocoa and Super C. Protein Cocoa is the nation’s first, fresh chocolate soy-protein drink made from all-organic ingredients. Super C is the first vitamin C drink for customers who prefer all organic products.

With 20 grams of protein and rich in antioxidants, Protein Cocoa features non-GMO (genetically modified organism) soy protein and fair-trade, dark cocoa. Protein Cocoa is the first creamy chocolate drink including Himalayan pink salt, an ingredient known for its high concentration of minerals and trace elements.

Unlike alternatives on the market, Super C contains no synthetic, ascorbic acid, and is made only from organic foods rich in vitamin C: mangos, passionfruit, guava, strawberries, oranges, lemon peel, rose hips and Acerola cherries. Organic Acerola cherries and rose hips are two of nature’s richest sources of vitamin C.

“We’re excited to offer two new, nutrition-focused drinks unlike anything on the market,” said Jimmy Stewart, co-founder of Columbia Gorge Organic Juice. “Protein Cocoa and Super C are good for you because we painstakingly source the best organic ingredients available.”

Protein Cocoa and Super C are available in 16 fl. oz. recyclable plastic bottles for the suggested retail price of $3.79. The drinks are available at stores in Washington, Oregon, California, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Ames, Iowa.
