When I was at Natural Products Expo West recently, I came across a drink that wowed me in a major, major way.
It easily would have made my Top 5 Organic Food Products of the show, but I knew that I wanted to dedicate an entire post to it, given how special it is.
Never seen before on U.S. supermarket shelves, Sealand Birk comes from Denmark, where it has been a beverage for thousands of years.
So, what exactly is Sealand Birk?
It is the juice that is tapped from a birch tree, and harvesting takes place only once a year, from April to May.
The birch tree naturally purifies over 100 liters of water per day through its roots system, and in this process it adds minerals and nutrients.
The end result is a fluid which is slightly “syrupy”, light, refreshing, and naturally sweet.
I can’t compare it to any other drink that I have had in the past because it is so unique and different.
What I can tell you is that I absolutely LOVE Sealand Birk, have had a lot of trouble putting it down, and believe that it is going to be a massive hit in the U.S. beverage market. If marketed correctly, this drink has the potential to be the next coconut water.
Aside from the mineral and nutrients in the drink, there is speculation that Sealand Birk helps to flush the kidneys, although no official claims have been made just yet. The company is still working through all of the research data right now and verifying its exact health benefits.
The original flavor of Sealand Birk, which is my favorite, is nothing more than the birch tree juice and non-GMO ascorbic acid. The four other flavors – blueberry, elderflower, raspberry, ginger/lime – are all the same except for that organic extracts have been added.
The ingredients of this USDA certified organic product include: 100% Birch tree juice, tapped directly from the birch tree, natural content of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, ascorbic acid, 1.2% natural fruit sugar, (0.7-1.4%), xylitol, Vitamin C, potassium, calcium, natrium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorous, copper, iron, natural fructose, glutamine, amino acids.
HOW TO GET SEALAND BIRK NOW
Sealand Birk will be available on the West Coast of the U.S. in late May or early June, and the company expects nationwide distribution by the end of this year.
HOWEVER…….since I figured that many of you would want to taste it right now, I told the company that I wanted to do something special for my loyal readers.
So, here is what we I have arranged – so that you could be some of the very first people to try this drink.
** Free Giveaway The company has agreed to give away 12 cases of Sealand Birk. At $24.95 per case, this is a $300 value.
