Bumbleroot Foods Launches  Hydration Drink Mixes featuring the African fruit Baobab

Real ingredients (featuring coconut water and the African superfruit Baobab) and pouch-sized packaging provide a healthier and more eco-friendly way to hydrate.

 

BIGFORK, MT Bumbleroot Foods wants you to rethink how you drink. Its Hydration Drink Mix features coconut water and the African superfruit Baobab to create a refreshing, delicious drink with electrolytes and antioxidants that both hydrates and nourishes. The drinks contain nearly 30% of the daily recommended value of potassium (that’s the same potassium as 2-3 bananas!) all without the sugars, sodium, or artificial flavors that are standard ingredients in other hydration and sports drinks.

 

Bumbleroot Foods is working toward a regenerative food system one drink at a time (and will soon be offering snacks and food experience kits). The team at Bumbleroot wants to be your trusted source for foods that span a global range of flavors and ingredients letting you explore new foods and new stories while supporting a regenerative approach to agricultural production.

 

The Drink Mixes: Hydration + Nutrition

The pocket-sized drink mixes can be added to your water bottle to provide an easy, delicious way to fuel your body and enhance your everyday activities whether you’re at your desk or training for an ironman race.

 

And for smoothie lovers, the drink mixes make a great smoothie base to which other other fruits, vegetables, and superfoods can be added.

 

And because the drinks aren’t bottled, you won’t contribute to the 50 million plastic bottles that are thrown away each day in the United States.

 

Three tasty flavors Turmeric Ginger, Raspberry Hibiscus Mint, and Original are available for sale now at bumblerootfoods.com and in select stores.  Best of all, the flavors are provided by the real thing — real turmeric in the Turmeric Ginger drink, real raspberry crystals in the Raspberry Hibiscus Mint drink…well, you get the picture.

 

Bumbleroot drinks are sweetened with organic stevia and low-glycemic monkfruit.

 

Bao-what?

The baobab fruit (it looks sort of like a coconut) comes from the baobab tree, which is grown throughout Africa. Also known as the “tree of life”, the massive and gnarly Baobab tree looks like it has been torn out of the ground and turned upside down. Many of the trees are hundreds to thousands of years old and are the center of a biodiverse ecosystem that has developed around them.

 

The cream-colored fruit pulp dries in the shell, and is removed by cracking the shell open. The seeds are removed, and the powder is finely crushed and is then put through a sieve. No additional processing is necessary.

 

Baobab’s nutritional benefits

Antioxidants: More antioxidants than blueberries.

 

Minerals & Vitamins: Potassium, magnesium, calcium, and Vitamin C. One serving of baobab powder (two tablespoons) has 25% of your recommended daily value of Vitamin C.

 

Prebiotic: You’ve heard of probiotics, but just as important are prebiotics which help that good bacteria grow in your gut. The fiber in the baobab fruit has prebiotic properties.

 

Fiber: One serving of baobab powder (two tablespoons) has 24% of your recommended daily value of dietary fiber.

 

Upcoming products

Bumbleroot’s upcoming products include a beef jerky snack that will feature beef sourced from ranches utilizing regenerative practices, a mushroom lentil jerky featuring organic lentils, and a sourdough bread kit featuring organic wheat.

 

We will celebrate and share the stories of the farmer, ranchers, and harvesters producing food that builds better soil and protects biodiversity.

What is regenerative agriculture?

Regenerative agriculture goes beyond sustainable practices and works with nature to build soil and ecosystems that thrive. Healthy soil and ecosystems sequester more carbon and water and are a critical tool in mitigating climate change.
