Thank you for the update rhcttech.
These products serve "simple" sugar. There are three types of sugar.
Monosaccharides - A simple sugar, most are recognizable by their ose ending.
Glucose, fructose, galactose are examples of simple sugars. All sugars no matter what form they start out as are reduced to a monosaccharide for absorption.
Disaccharides - A double sugar; also known as table sugar (or sucrose) Lactose is also a disaccharide and is the sugar in milk.
Polysaccharides - Also known as a complex carbohydrate or starches. This type of sugar provides us with longer lasting energy. Potatoes, rice, breads are all forms of polysaccharides. These sugars provide us with fiber and nutrition.
Your body stores sugar in the brain and muscles
(glucose and glycogen).
The difference between 5 grams of sugar in the products means very little. (Though it would be interesting to see how much caffeine is in each of them).
Personally I am not a big believer in getting my vitamins through a drink, most people should be able to get their vitamins through food and/or a daily vitamin.
There are many products out there they claim to be energy bars/products. But when you breakdown the label I have found that some of them actually have more fat then a candy bar. Just because they have more protein in them does not make them better for you. It really all depends on what you are looking at the product to do for you.
The bottom line is that if you feel that Jones has too much sugar in it, then True Blue is really not that much different. The reality is consumers buy products that taste good to them. Just because you do not personally like the taste of your company's drink, that doesn't mean the masses feel the same way. After all you buy stocks that you think will make you money.
I'm going in a couple days to get the info we talked about. I think I can get True Blue from Jewel...let me know what other grocery stores carry it. I also have a Dominicks nearby. I actually like having this type of discussion on products, I will get you a breakdown of both.
Exactly, and LBIX doesn't have half the distribution of JSDA, yet for the latest nine months LBIX sold $40M in sales compared to only $28M for JSDA. Therefore, LBIX is selling because people drink it, not because it is just finding more shelf space like Jones. The best valuse is with LBIX...drinking habits are changing, because households drink pepsi and coke at fastfood joints, that don't offer the better tasting and healthy beverages. Demographics are changing in this country, and so will drinking habits!!
Healthy Juices vs Sweet Teen soda pops, Jones is a fad, won't last, sales will slump when hoopla over. LBIX has staying power and growth, already has more sales than JSDA, and wouldn't be surprised to see LBIX bought out for a good price. TrueBlue Trademark has value, watch this stock triple by years end as profitable earnings begin.
