KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A group of students at the University of Tennessee has won third place in a national competition for creating a new energy drink.
The five food science and technology seniors created "Wired Berry," a drinkable yogurt, for the competition sponsored by the Dairy Research Institute. It is described as a healthy alternative to sugary, carbonated energy drinks.
The students' goal was to create a healthy energy supplement targeted to college students and young adults. They settled on a blend of strawberry and blueberry purees with low-fat plain yogurt.
