VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading Brands, Inc. (Nasdaq:LBIX), North America's only fully integrated healthy branded beverage company, announces the introduction - across Canada and along the West Coast of the United States - of TrueBlue® 100% Juices; each filled with antioxidant-rich 100% superfruit juices. Most importantly, TrueBlue® 100% Juices do NOT contain ANY filler apple or pear juices, the main ingredients in virtually every other so-called "100% juice" product in the juice aisle. Consequently, these wonderful new products also deliver the award winning taste of other TrueBlue® beverages so desired by consumers.

TrueBlue® 100% juices are initially available in 46 oz (1.36 liter) PET bottles in three great flavors: Wild Blueberry, Wild Blueberry and Pomegranate and Wild Blueberry and Blackberry. These great new products will be introduced by our "Learn the Truth™" in-store marketing program focused on educating consumers to read the ingredients on competitive labels, and compare.

Designed by the Company's in-house research and development team and produced in the Company's own high speed bottling plant, TrueBlue® 100% Juices are being distributed through mainstream grocery, health and natural food stores across Canada. During the past year the Company re-established its distribution network along the West Coast of the United States, supported by a large national health and natural foods distributor. Consequently, the TrueBlue® 100% Juices will shortly be on the shelves of most major health and natural foods stores in Washington, Oregon and California, with broader retail expansion in the works.
