Vitaminwater Lawsuit Shines Spotlight on Vitamin-Enhanced Water Category

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - July 31, 2013) -  As news surrounding Vitaminwater's lawsuit spreads, the spotlight on this brand has caused consumers and the media to question the true benefits of products within the vitamin-enhanced beverage category.

Renowned beveragist and Jolt Cola creator C.J. Rapp launched Karma Wellness Water with his partners in 2011 after learning that some vitamins deteriorate in water. To craft a product that delivered real benefits, an advisory board including board-certified physician nutrition specialist Melina Jampolis, M.D., noted nutrition researcher and professor Jeffrey B. Blumberg, Ph.D., and sports medicine specialist Michael D. Maloney, M.D., was formed.

Karma Wellness Water was developed in five natural varieties, each containing 110 percent of the recommended daily allowances of vitamins A, B3, B6, B12, Niacin, D and E. The product's patented cap technology allows the consumer to mix vitamins and water at the point consumption, maximizing potency.

Rapp and his team also focused on caloric count and taste when developing the product. Karma is naturally sweetened with a blend of stevia and pure cane sugar. Each 18-ounce bottle contains only 20 calories and is free of preservatives, gluten and lactose.

"Consumers want a product that delivers what it promises, not one laced with pixy dust," said Rapp. "With Karma Wellness Water, we set out to create something that tastes great, doesn't break the calorie bank and represents goodness -- for the body, for the mind, in the community. We did not choose the name Karma lightly, and we believe that when you do something positive, you get something positive in return."

The attached infographic illustrates the discrepancies in vitamin potency, calories and sugar between some of the market's leading vitamin-enhanced beverages.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
