We Believe That The Good Things In Life Take Time. As They Should…
NewGreens® was one of the very first superfood drinks that didn’t taste like pond scum and for nearly 20 years, NewGreens® has developed, evolved and finally arrived into what we firmly believe is our best formulation yet.
It took us 4 years to re-imagine what a Super-Food drink should be. NewGreens® Classic, Minted and SuperBerry is the outcome of patience, persistence and most of all—doing things right.
TRIED, TRUE & TRUSTED…No Cheap & Easy Way
Sourcing ingredients in a global economy is literally cheap & easy. Unfortunately, they’re also ineffective and don’t have much nutritional value.
We Didn’t Want That…
We decided to dig deep, we looked within and we got real with ourselves and decided to choose only ingredients grown by trusted organic farmers in the United States. View our FAQ below to learn more.
SUPERFOOD SOURCING: FAQ
Tried & True Isn’t Just A Slogan
In formulating NewGreens® it was very important for us to NOT source anything from China. As history has shown us, if there’s any chance of an ingredient being mislabeled organic when it’s not, or the probability of an ingredient being high in toxic heavy metals, then we want to avoid it. While the other guys source from China, we won’t. EVER!
This was no easy feat for us and this has taken us nearly 4 years in identifying our organic American farms.
Our whole-food ingredients are grown in the USA under easily verifiable USDA Organic guidelines.*
If we can source our ingredients domestically, right here in the USA, then that’s what we do!
TALK IS CHEAP—Real sustainability should be more than a tagline or slogan. We don’t ‘Green Wash’ and that’s why we take manufacturing seriously.
1) We Support & Source Organically from American Farmlands With Strict Environmental Controls
–Never Mainland China That Has No Environmental Standards or Laws
2) We Choose High-Quality Freeze-Drying & Sprouting Methods Giving You The Whole Raw Food – Never Spray Dried
3) We Choose To Use Pouches Manufactured in The U.S.
–Never Wasteful Plastic Canisters That Use 70% More Material

First, let’s define what it means to be organic:
“Organic” certifies a process of how food is grown or produced. It certifies that the farmer doesn’t add pesticides, herbicides, petroleum-based fertilizer, metals or synthetic chemicals to the crop (among other things), and it certifies that the soil must be free from such things for a certain number of years before organic certification is approved.
But organic certification does nothing to address environmental sources of pollution, contaminated irrigation water, and fallout from industrial or chemical factories that might be nearby. A certified organic farmer can use polluted water on their crops and still have the crops labeled “organic.”
Vitamins and nutritional supplements usually use agricultural products as key raw materials. The top vitamin exporting province, Zhejiang, has an alarming level of soil pollution from heavy metal. As matter of fact, one-sixth of China’s farmlands are heavily polluted.
It is estimated that only 2% of imported vitamin and supplement products, including food items are inspected for legitimacy.
Furthermore, vitamin & supplement manufacturers are not required to label the country of origin for any ingredients used on their labels or materials. We beg to differ!

SUPERFOOD METHODOLOGY: FAQ
As you may already know, most all of our ingredients are grown organically, right here in the USA.
But that’s just half the story of what makes NewGreens® the best green drink available… The other half is how we process our ingredients by avoiding high temperature spray drying methods.
We encourage you to learn more about Spray Drying Vs. Freeze Drying Methods
Most all green drink mixes on the market (even the fancy, expensive, high end, celebrity endorsed ones) use cheap spray dried juice powders typically sourced from China.
We Don’t Like Spray Drying Because:
- Spray Drying Uses Juice Only, omitting the whole-food, leaving key nutrients behind
- Spray Drying Uses A High Heat that destroys nutrients— It’s Not Raw & Not Good
- Spray drying uses high levels of unnatural substances or flow agents
When reading your product label (The Supplement Facts Panel) on the back and if it says “juice powder” anywhere on that label, then that ingredient was processed using the juice only and processed using very high heat (in excess of 200 degrees F) spray drying methods.
A: The best way to maintain nutrient density and value is to start with the whole food, not just the juice portion. The best way is also the most expensive way and it’s called Freeze Drying. Freeze drying guarantees that the nutrients in food will stay intact. This method does not use heat and leaves the food in its most natural, healthful raw state.
In addition to freeze drying, we also utilize sprouting for ingredients that would otherwise be difficult for the body to digest.
