Chicago-based 3 Vodka, the only vodka in the world distilled from soy, has become the first and only spirit to be certified and recommended by the American Vegetarian Association (AVA). Millions of consumers have embraced vegetarian diet regimes from the traditional vegetarian to the health conscious dieter as the increasing awareness of healthier eating has become more mainstream. Earlier this month, 3 Vodka also announced that it is the first and only distilled spirit to receive federal label approval to list “zero carbohydrates” as a nutritional statement on its packaging.

The AVA was created to promote the interests and concerns of individuals and organizations involved in the preservation, propagation, and distribution of vegetarian ideas and products. The primary goal of the AVA is to provide a widely recognized certification program which will enable vegetarian-minded people to make accurate food choices, being certain they can be confident in their selection, and that of the manufacturer’s claims.

“Upon trial, we were overjoyed with the pure, smooth taste of 3 Vodka and then even more so when we learned it was distilled from soy, said Leonard Torine, AVA executive director. Since the AVA logo defines goodness, quality, wholesomeness, and manufacturing practices in strict adherence to the rigid standards of vegetarian guidelines, we feel that it perfectly complies with 3 Vodka, and we are happy to certify and recommend it.”

“The fact that approximately 9 to 10 million consumers in the United States follow traditional vegetarian diets and more than 80 million health conscious consumers buy vegetarian products, we at 3 Vodka are excited to be recognized as a validated option for those

with diet guidelines and beliefs, said Brian Berish, managing partner of 3 Vodka Distilling Co.

“3 Vodka is a remarkable product and consumers are embracing the brand from its incredibly smooth taste and character, to containing zero carbs and being gluten-free and now being recommended by the AVA.”

Due to the rapidly increasing awareness and importance of healthier eating, consumers have been testing various diet methods from counting carbohydrates to only eating raw foods. According to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. The U.S. market for vegetarian foods was estimated to be $ 1.5 billion in 2002, and is expected to nearly double by 2006 to $ 2.8 billion.

3 Vodka represents a breakthrough both in the vodka it contains and the package design. It is the natural essence of soy that lends 3 its signature taste and smoothness. Image conscious personalities like Britney Spears, Rose McGowan, and Jermaine Dupri have been spotted enjoying 3 Vodka. Recently introduced, 3 Vodka is enjoying a successful introduction throughout the United States.
