"O Canada, O Clara!" Team Natur-a cheers Team Canada choice of Clara Hughes
as country's Olympic flag bearer

SAINT-HYACINTHE, QC, Feb. 1 /CNW Telbec/ - Nutrisoya Foods congratulates its spokesperson Clara Hughes on being chosen to carry our country's flag at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic opening ceremony.

"We are extremely proud of Clara for this great honour. She represents the best of what Canada stands for" declared Nick Feldman, President of Nutrisoya Foods. "Clara is not only a gifted athlete; she is a compassionate and wonderful person who is a role model for Canadians of all ages. We are certainly delighted that Clara's appreciation of the importance of great nutrition in her pursuit of excellence found a perfect match in Natur-a organic soy beverages as an integral part of her daily food choices over the past many years."

Natur-a soy beverages are produced in Saint-Hyacinthe, QC using locally grown, organic, non-GMO soybeans. Unlike all other brands, Nutrisoya Foods' exclusive process includes the soaking of the whole soybeans for eight hours before they are cooked, which naturally improves nutritional value and flavour and facilitates digestion. They are not made from concentrate, are rich in protein, vitamin D and calcium, as well as 14 other essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. They represent a natural source of Omega 3 and folic acid and are free of lactose, cholesterol, and gluten.

Nutrisoya Foods has become Canada's leading organic soy beverage producer thanks to quality products that appeal both to children and adults and provide exceptional nutrition, taste and value.

Natur-a products can be found in the principle grocery chains (Loblaws, Metro, IGA, Sobeys) warehouse clubs (Costco) and in health-food stores everywhere.
