Odwalla Juice was started in 1980, when Greg Steltenpohl, Gerry Percy, and Bonnie Bassett realized that a glass of California orange juice should contain a lot more fresh juice. The name of the company was inspired by a song that told of a hero who led the “people of the sun” out of the “grey haze”. Odwalla makes all natural juice that contains 100% juice and that is available during the peak season for the fruits it contains. They also make a line of Fruit Smoothies, and a line of Garden Organics that contain 100% juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. Odwalla makes a line of Super Protein drinks that contain 15 grams of protein per bottle and 85% organic ingredients. Flavors include Original, Vanilla, Chocolate, Pumpkin, and more. Their all natural Quenchers are all natural and contain 20% fruit/puree blend. Odwalla makes bars in a bunch of different flavors and varieties. The bars are the only Odwalla product you can buy from their website. Prices range from about $9.00 for a pack of six to about $19.00 for a pack of fifteen.
Foods that are organic were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Odwalla’s all natural juices contain 100% juice, which means that they do not contain any added sugars or artificial ingredients. Visit the Odwalla website to quickly and easily sort out which of their products are gluten free. This is helpful for people who have celiac disease, or a gluten allergy or intolerance, and who need to avoid foods that contain wheat or gluten. You can use the same system to find vegan products. Vegan products do not contain meat or any animal products (such as eggs or dairy). The Odwalla headquarters are located in Dinuba, California. In 2011, they stopped using petroleum-based plastic and introduced the more natural 12 ounce PlantBottle package. It is completely recyclable, and derived from sugar cane!
