The Launch of Xicama™'s new ready-to-drink beverages follows the incredibly successful launch of the company's first jicama-based cocktail mix, Xicamix, at Coachella last year. The star ingredient of both Xicamix and the new sparkling waters is jicama (hee-kamah), a root vegetable native to Mexico with a fresh and lightly sweet taste. Celebrity food experts including Goop's Gwyneth Paltrow, Food Network's Rachael Ray, and Genius foods author Max Lugavere, have named jicama "The Superfood of 2019" for its ability to nourish the body with Vitamin C, prebiotic fibre, and essential vitamins.

Xicama™'s read-to-drink sparkling waters will be available for purchase February 1st, 2020 on Amazon and Shopify, and will be available March 1st, 2020 in retail outlets across the U.S.
