Popular drink styles
Creamy textured drinks including chilled coffees, protein shakes and smoothies that can be enhanced with bespoke ingredients.
Dairy-based drinks are on trend right now, and their pleasing flavours and textures provide the perfect base to deliver additional ingredients. At Opalbond, we love finding new ways to do this differently – like designing chilled protein coffees as a sports nutrition innovation, delivering caffeine and milk protein.
Long-life and dairy-free, water-based drinks provide a blank canvas for creating new and exciting flavour and ingredient blends.
Water-based drinks provide the perfect opportunity to get creative with flavour combinations and ingredients, as well as great nutrition. We can create great tasting drinks even after adding key ingredients like high dose BCAA's, filling into a variety of packaging formats; cans, PET bottles and shots.
Convenient and appetising, drinks are a great way to introduce new customers to your wider brand. Convenience being key to the end consumers, we can add BCAAs to your drink whilst still maintaining a great taste. Using our natural ingredients helps to appeal to a wider audience interested in general well-being and the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.
In the weight management sector, the imperative is to provide a compliant drink that can act as a meal replacement in accordance with the latest regulations. Any drink must offer reassurance that it will support weight loss without compromising on nutrition. That’s where our in-house nutritionists come in, working with product developers to ensure the final product meets the rules that apply to meal replacement products.
If you want to offer drinks with a high-dosage nutrient profile, finding the optimum balance of ingredients is key. With an exhaustive knowledge of the available supplements, including newly developed ingredients, we are the experts when it comes to developing the right formula to compete and innovate in a crowded marketplace.
