The Bioenergy Life Science booth #3257 at IFT 2014 in New Orleans is bustling with activity! Thirsty attendees are quenching their thirst, and re-booting their energy levels, with four flavors of Titan Tea by Chill Brands, LLC, made with three grams of Bioenergy Ribose per serving.

Most are also succumbing to our array of tempting treats made with ribose including big hits: Good Cacao’s Energy (coconut) and Zipp Foods’ Peak Energy tablets.

Our Team Ribose athletes – Greg Bennett, Laura Bennett and Billy Demong, are doing an excellent job of explaining to visitors exactly how ribose has safely benefited their daily routines, giving them sustainable energy and helping with their muscle recovery.

They also report having a blast during the IFTSA Fun Run & Walk in Audubon Park, where they finished strong! Bioenergy Life Science is proud to have again sponsored this event, which raised a record-breaking $107,000 for Feeding Tomorrow undergraduate and graduate food science scholarships.

 

Bioenergy Ribose samples are a hit with IFT participants

Bioenergy Ribose Booth #4440 is a hit at the IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo, going on through tomorrow in Chicago. Our product prototypes – including chewy granola bars, fruit chews, whey protein balls and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, are flying off the trays! And food professionals from around the world are complimenting us on the cold, refreshing ready-to-drink tangerine orange energy beverage.

Also, a big thank you to the folks at Good Cacao for providing samples of its new superfood chocolate bars (almond, banana and peppermint flavors) made with Bioenergy Ribose. Everyone loves them!

On today’s agenda: Bioenergy Ribose was a sponsor of this morning’s IFT Fun Run & Walk, benefitting Feeding Tomorrow undergraduate and graduate food science scholarships. Kudos to our sales manager for sports nutrition supplements Michael Crabtree, who laced up his running shoes to represent Team Ribose after learning that Greg and Laura Bennett would be unable to attend the event because of flight delays. Michael is a certified personal trainer, strength and conditioning specialist, and nutritionist.

Our Team Ribose members are traveling the world! Just as many of us, including elite triathletes Greg and Laura Bennett, gather in Chicago for the Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Food Expo, rowing champion Susan Francia will be competing as one of the favorites in the Samsung World Rowing Cup III in Lucerne, Switzerland! Susan won gold and set a world record (5:54.17) in the heat in the eight at the 2012 Samsung World Rowing Cup II. We know she’ll have a remarkable showing in this year’s event. Good luck Susan! We are rooting for you!

Meanwhile, our newestTeam Ribose member Billy Demong will be in the midst of a challenging three-week trip that includes an annual race in Steamboat Springs, CO followed by a ski jumping camp in the Black Forest of Germany. He will then travel to France where he will ride in the Alps for as many as seven hours a day, which follows the Tour de France for several stages.

Team Ribose will also be represented during next month’s Fi South America, taking place in sunny Sao Paulo, Brazil. Bioenergy Life Science Sales Manager Michael Crabtree will be in attendance with our parent company Chengzhi Life Science booth #S57. Fi South America and Hi 013 are expected to attract more than 11,000 food professionals from more than 50 countries. We look forward to meeting with many of our international customers, and building stronger partnerships with our distributors during this event.

Just as Bioenergy Ribose helps everyone from elite athletes to busy moms and 9-to-5’ers maintain their energy, the industry side of the equation is also sustaining strong momentum. There is strong and growing interest in formulating with Bioenergy Ribose because it delivers what the public is seeking: faster energy recovery and better energy reserves without crashes, jitters and other undesirable side effects.
