- Tropicana’s latest range will help consumers to close their daily nutritional gaps with fruit drinks added with essential nutrients
- Tropicana Essentials will be available in three delicious variants – Orange Blend, Mango Blend and Banana Blend
KUALA LUMPUR, 5 April 2019 – Tropicana, the World’s No. 1 brand in packaged 100% Juice and Nectars  recently launched the Tropicana Essentials range in a bid to provide Malaysians with a nutritious ready-to-go beverage that fits the lifestyle habits of consumers in today’s fast-paced environment. Packed with essential minerals and multivitamins, the newly introduced Tropicana Essentials range comes in three refreshing variants. These include Orange Blend, Mango Blend and Banana Blend mixed with other fruit juices to create a perfect amalgamation of freshness and taste, while assisting Malaysians to supplement their daily nutrition intake.
Closing the nutritional gap for the day
Despite the rise in interest to eat clean and source for more nourishing meals, experts say that Malaysians’ nutritional intakes are still below daily recommended servings. Studies showed that 59.1% Malaysians consumed fruits below recommended daily servings, 81.7% consumed vegetables below recommended daily servings and 73.6% consumed dairy and milk products below recommended daily servings. When individuals are unable to meet the daily dietary requirements, they often face associated issues like fatigue and drop in energy levels.
“With rising urbanisation in Malaysia, convenience has become a major aspect in the decision-making process for consumers. This ranges from everything, including food choices where urbanites often reach out for fast and easy food options as opposed to healthier ones which leads to a drop in the essential nutrient intake,” said Santharuban T. Sundaram, Vice President of Marketing at Etika Sdn Bhd.
Tropicana’s latest Essentials range combines the goodness of juices added with multivitamins and essential minerals that serves to close the daily nutrition gap. This ensures that Malaysians are able to juggle multiple tasks in a day without having to compromise on their health and nourishment.
Combining taste and nutrition with three new variants
Available in three refreshing variants, namely Orange Blend, Mango Blend and Banana Blend, Tropicana Essentials is the cool new way to quench thirst and replenish your nutrient levels wherever you are.
Tropicana Essentials Orange Blend combines the tang of oranges with the sweetness of apples giving the perfect combination of flavour and taste. Added with multivitamins including Vitamin A, B3 and B6, C and E, Tropicana Essentials Orange Blend is the go-to beverage supplementing your daily nutrient intake. Drink a pack of Orange Blend if you are looking to fulfill your Vitamin C needs of the day.
Next in-line is the Tropicana Essentials Mango Blend that brings together the invigorating taste of mangoes, oranges and apples all packaged together in one beverage. Along with being an excellent thirst quencher for Malaysia’s tropical weather, the Tropicana Essentials Mango Blend contains 5.3mg of iron, an essential mineral in red blood cell formation. This means that those looking to fulfill their daily iron requirements can consume two packs of Mango Blend.
Packing a punch of flavours, the Tropicana Essentials Banana Blend is an exotic trio of carefully chosen bananas, white grapes and strawberries. Apart from its refined taste, each pack of Banana Blend contains 267 mg calcium, an essential mineral required for the development of strong bones and teeth. Consume two packs of Banana Blend if you are looking to fulfill your daily calcium requirements.
“Getting your daily dose of nutrients is now as easy as walking to your nearest convenient store and grabbing a pack or two of Tropicana Essentials. The new Tropicana Essentials range fits all the requirements of an urban Malaysian. From those looking to replenish their energy during a hectic workday to those looking to improve their daily intake of essential vitamins and minerals,” added Santharuban.
