SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS – Frozen yogurt maker Mixmi announced its products are becoming available at many grocery stores, including at chains such as Kroger and HEB, across the US.
The froyo already had appeared in US elementary, middle and high schools. Now it will roll out and become widely accessible to consumers in frozen dessert aisles.
The company’s functional frozen yogurt treats were created by food scientists to help support digestion and gut health. Mixmi froyo contains verified live and active cultures in a prebiotic fiber dairy matrix.
"Choosing to eat foods that contain prebiotic fiber and probiotics can literally change your gut health for the better," said Kristin Harlander, cofounder of Mixmi. "This can have a significant impact on how you feel and even on your overall immunity."
Mixmi’s process for creating its frozen yogurt involves fermenting with six live and active cultures, which results in billions of probiotics per cup, the company shared. Mixmi adds prebiotic fiber to feed the beneficial probiotics that occur naturally in the gut. The company’s froyo includes a probiotic called Bifidobacterium, BB-12, which according to numerous studies, may have beneficial effects on the immune and gastrointestinal system.
"It sounds complicated, but really, what you are doing by eating products with prebiotics and probiotics is supporting your gut and your digestive tract," Harlander said.
The froyo is becoming available to purchase at grocery stores in 30 states. Sold in six flavors – Ultimate Chocolate, Orange Dream, Más Mango, Mint Chocolate, Totally Vanilla and Vanilla Cupcake – Mixmi’s froyo comes packaged in 4-packs of 4 oz cups. Each cup contains 90 calories per serving.
