Air Force awards SBIR grant to makers of iDrink water

Agency: 
Dept. of Defense

Las Vegas, Nev.-based greenONE Holdings has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Air Force to create nutritional products for warfighters that utilize the same Nutrient Delivery System technology featured in the company’s popular iDrink water.

The Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant award is intended to help address the challenge of rapidly and conveniently replacing hydration and nutrition in Air Force personnel. The contract will facilitate nutritional formulations to improve warfighters’ physical, psychological, and cognitive performance as well as their resilience.

“We believe the same technology that helped create idrink beverages, will empower Air Personnel to perform their duties longer and more effectively,” Neil Fineman, CEO of greenONE, said in a press release.

The nanotechnology process used to make iDrink involves drastically shrinking vitamins and minerals so that they can be embedded in tiny clusters of pH-balanced water for faster absorption by the body. The process takes the taste and color out of the nutrients—even those with strong flavors like fish oil and turmeric—resulting in a clear beverage with a clean, crisp taste.
