Launched early in May, Javo's new lemonade-based energy drinks are available for foodservice operators to answer the call for the most sought-out attribute in functional beverages, energy, while also providing the added benefit of mental focus. Each 12-ounce serving contains 100 mg of natural caffeine and 100 mg of natural L-theanine derived from green tea, with the trending flavor profiles of pomegranate pineapple, peach honey, and blackberry.

"We're deeply honored by the NAMA People's Choice Award and grateful for the acknowledgment of all of the research and development that went into these new functional energy lemonades," said Chris Johnson, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Javo Beverage. "We know there is consumer demand for healthier and innovative energy beverage options with clean label ingredients, and it's rewarding to get this positive industry feedback, especially so soon after the launch."
