There’s a new way to start your day off right. JÙS by Julie, a maker of healthy juices and shots, has unveiled the first-ever cold-brew coffee containing probiotics. “The first-of-its kind option provides users with instant energy, along with additional immune- and digestive-health benefits,” the company says.

The coffee contains branded Bacillus coagulans strain Ganeden BC30 from Ganeden Biotech (Cleveland). Ganeden BC30, a hardy, spore-forming probiotic strain, has appeared in everything from cold-pressed juices and hot teas to functional tortillas and soup.

“According to the National Coffee Association, Americans drink an average of 3.1 cups of coffee daily, so it makes sense to conveniently add the health benefits of probiotics into those servings,” said Michael Bush, senior vice president, Ganeden, in a press release.

The cold-brew coffee is available in original and vanilla flavors and contains 1 billion CFU of Ganeden BC30. JÙS by Julie says it is made using a special brewing process.

“We’ve always placed importance on creating quality products that promote good digestive health, since 70% of the immune system is found there,” said Julie Maleh, a certified health coach and founder of JÙS by Julie, in a press release. “Our blended juices provide fiber that is crucial to healthy digestion, and now we’re taking it one step further with our Probiotic Cold Brew Coffee by giving consumers a delicious daily way to further increase the good bacteria in their systems.”
