West Chester, Penn.-based ready-to-drink cascara tea producer, Peloton, announced it has just added two new SKUs to its product range: Peloton Cascara Tea Lemon Lightly Sweet, and Peloton Cascara Tea Original Unsweetened.
Cascara, a Spanish word that translates to “husk” refers to the skin or cherry that surrounds the coffee bean. Though many coffee producers treat it as “waste,” it is actually a superfood possessing 78 times the antioxidants of pomegranates and blueberries. It is also clinically proven to increase brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF), supporting brain health.
Additionally, cascara provides a second and sustainable revenue stream to tea farmers, thus improving their lives and the farms overall.
