Green Valley Organics Launches New Lactose-Free Kefir Flavor: Green Apple Kale 

All the goodness of greens and fruit in a delicious organic yogurt drink, made with lactose-free milk from family farms 

Sebastopol, CA – September 22, 2015 – Green Valley Organics, the leader in organic lactose-free dairy products that taste great and meet diverse digestive needs, announces the launch of its new lactose-free kefir flavor, Green Apple Kale. The new flavor is available at Whole Foods Markets nationwide at a suggested retail price of $5.29, with wider distribution at natural food stores later in the year.

The new kefir flavor, Green Apple Kale with hints of lemon and ginger, is made with simple ingredients just like you would use at home for a fresh, green smoothie. The idea was to combine all the goodness of kale and fruit with the benefits of organic dairy - such as protein and calcium - in a delicious yogurt drink. Perfect for back-to-school lunches and for people on the go, the new flavor features healthy greens and fruits for a nutritious breakfast, a healthy lunch, or a rejuvenating post-workout drink.

 “We’re thrilled to offer this new great-tasting dairy product that lactose-intolerant people and their families can enjoy. This new kefir is not only delicious and organic, it’s the ‘real deal’ – real dairy for those with sensitive stomachs or just people who want a fast, healthy snack free of unnecessary ingredients, “ said Jennifer Bice, CEO and President, Green Valley Organics.
