EMERYVILLE, Calif., May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jamba Juice Company (NASDAQ:JMBA), a leading healthy, active lifestyle brand is set to satisfy the summertime craving for the season's most popular fruit: strawberries. Jamba ® selects strawberries picked at the peak of perfection, so they're deliciously refreshing, nutritious and a rich source of antioxidants (vitamin C). What better way to get a real taste of summer than from a Jamba strawberry-packed smoothie made with whole fruit, including Strawberries Wild ®, Strawberry Surf Rider ™ and Jamba Kids ™ Strawberries Gone Bananas ™.
"Strawberries are a natural, nutrient-rich treat packed with phytochemicals and antioxidants, like immunity-boosting vitamin C, which is vital to the promotion of heart and brain health," explained nationally recognized nutrition expert , Elizabeth M. Ward, MS, RD. Ward is also an award-winning author of My Plate for Moms, a WebMD contributor, and a Jamba Healthy Living Council ™ member. She went on to add, "a single serving—one cup or eight large strawberries—contains 86.5 mg of vitamin C, which more than satisfies the daily requirement, and the strawberry smoothies at Jamba Juice ® provide between 60 to 90 percent of that daily requirement."
