One of the more offbeat drink trends is the proliferation of chia-based drinks. Chia burst onto the scene in a big way around 2010, with the Aztec favorite finding its way into a number of grain-based products. However, 2012 could go down as the year when chia crossed over into energy drinks.

Hailed as “nature’s ancient energizer” is Chia\Vie Chia + Fruit Smoothie, a new energy drink from Bare Nutrition LLC. Packaged in 10oz resealable aluminum bottles, Chia\Vie blends ground chia seeds with fruit ingredients, such as banana, mango, apple, acerola and others. Each smoothie, in flavors such as Mango and Banapple-Berry, has two servings of fruit and a whopping 2,000mg of omega-3 oils.

In this video segment filmed at the 2012 Natural Products Expo East show in Baltimore, BevNET CEO John Craven speaks with the Reiths about the decision to move Chia\Vie into PET bottles, the efficacy of ground versus whole chia seeds, and their expectations for the company’s partnership with Cascadia. The Reiths also explain why they feel confident about weathering a worldwide chia shortage, and how the company’s well-received presentation in New Beverage Showdown 3 at BevNET Live Summer 2012 offered a critical opportunity for exposure of the Chia\Vie brand and led to a number of important connections with beverage industry advisors, retailers, and distributors.
