Nekta’s Liquid Kiwi Reduced Sugar has unveiled brand new 45% less sugar Liquid Kiwifruit and 40% less sugar versions of two of its flavours: Kiwi & Aloe Vera and Kiwi & Melon. These new versions in 375ml and 1L are being offered alongside the existing, classic Liquid kiwifruit products to promote choice on the juice aisle.
NEKTA Liquid Kiwifruit standard formulation has a lower sugar content than fruit juices generally contain, all product being under 10 gms sugar per 100 ml . Our Reduced Sugar range lowers that to between 5.5 gms / 100 ml and 5.9 gms / 100 ml. You will not experience a reduction in flavor …the taste is slightly different, lighter perhaps, but beautifully refreshing and satisfying. The Liquid Kiwi Reduced Sugar flavours contain exactly as much Kiwifruit, Aloe Vera, and Melon as the standard formulation, and consequently have exactly the same nutritional benefits but fewer calories.
All NEKTA Liquid Kiwifruit products are 100% free of artificial sweeteners and preservatives.
Nutritional Basis of Nekta Kiwifruit
A study by Rutgers University New Jersey 1997 found kiwifruit to be the most
nutrient dense fruit commonly available, and since then over 400 published studies
have confirmed it’s value, offering the B vitamins B1,B2,B6, Niacin and Folate, Vitamins C,E,K, and minerals calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc. We add further Vitamin C, so every glass of Nekta Kiwifruit is rich in this essential antioxidant, adding to the naturally occurring antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthan, both beneficial for protecting our eyes against progressive light damage. All Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit drinks contain Pectin, a soluble fruit dietary fibre, contributing to the reputation kiwifruit products have earned as assisting digestion and regularity – a happy you. Kiwifruit is Prebiotic, helping maintain a healthy bacterial balance in the small intestine. Recently, an enzyme in kiwifruit, Actinidin, has been found to assist in the breakdown of proteins, further enhancing digestion.
Nekta uses all the flesh of the fruit, with the rich nutritional value it delivers.
NEKTA Liquid Kiwifruit uses Kiwifruit solely grown in New Zealand, fruit recognised as setting the standard in quality, flavour and nutritional value. We developed a process for turning this beautiful fruit into a satisfying, refreshing fruit drink, protecting the taste, and ensuring much of the natural goodness is retained. This distinguishes Nekta Liquid Kiwifruit from
fruit juices, which are made from extracted juices only. With Nekta, the fruit is in the bottle.
We use only high quality, organic Aloe. Nekta Kiwifruit with Aloe Vera has a soft, smooth finish without the astringent taste often associated with Aloe Vera.
NEKTA Liquid Kiwifruit with Aloe Vera
Using the Original Kiwifruit base, the nutritional value is enhanced by Aloe Vera. Called 'The Miracle Plant' Aloe has been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. Today it is still one of the most widely used plant extracts for healing, cleansing the inner body and beautifying the skin. Aloe is itself rich in vitamins and minerals, reinforcing the value of the kiwifruit base, and contains all 8 Essential Amino acids. It helps rebuild collagen to repair damaged cells in the lining of our stomach and intestines, soothing and healing, as well as assisting system regularity, cleansing the colon of heavy metals, and boosting the immune system.
NEKTA Kiwifruit + Melon
A blend of Kiwifruit, Rock Melon and Honey Dew Melon, again building on the nutritional base of the Original, Kiwi + Melon has additional benefits of its own. It has “cooling “, anti- inflammatory effect through the carotenoid Lycopene. It also contains Beta Carotene, a colouring pigment that is a precursor to Vitamin A. Melon strengthens the kiwifruit nutritional value, itself containing vitamins A, B6, C and D, and minerals Magnesium, Potassium, Selenium, Iron and Zinc.
Kiwi + Melon is a refreshing, cooling drink, with a delicate balance of the smooth, light Melon flavours sitting on the tang of the Kiwifruit. Perfect in the
heat of summer or as a refresher anytime.
NEKTA Blackcurrant (Ready to drink)
Nekta Blackcurrant is a lovely, smooth fruit drink with the rich taste of blackcurrants from the South Island of New Zealand. Blackcurrants are known as being high in Vitamin C, and at Nekta we add extra Vitamin C to give a minimum total amount of 30 mg per 100 ml, 75% of the New Zealand adult RDI. Vitamin C is an important anti oxidant, offering protection against free radicals which can disrupt our cells, and involved in repairing and regenerating cell tissue. Blackcurrants are very high in anthocyanins and polyphenols, anti oxidants that give the fruit its deep purple colour. They also have the cell protection function already mentioned, are anti inflammatory (assist in reducing inflammation) and help to stimulate blood flow, including to the eyes, which helps reduce eye strain and increase eye recovery. Research also shows benefits to the kidney, where blackcurrant can help prevent against kidney stones by increasing urinary pH.
Nekta Blackcurrant has no added colour
and uses no preservatives.
NEKTA Liquid Gold Kiwifruit
A different fruit from a different vine, Gold Kiwifruit is nutritionally similar to the green kiwi, but with some variations in quantities of particular nutrients. Gold Kiwi has slightly more polyphenol antioxidants, more enzymes Lutein and Zeaxanthan which benefit our eyes, a higher level of B Group vitamins. Because we add Vitamin C and fibre to both Green and Gold, in Nekta these levels are similar. The main reason for choosing to drink either Green or Gold Nekta is taste.
Gold Kiwifruit is a lighter taste often thought to be sweeter, with a more complex flavour reminiscent of
a “citrus melon”. It is beautifully refreshing, full of
sub-tropical sunshine, the Golden Taste.
