Meet Our Superfruit
You’ve probably met the inside of the coffeefruit, what your everyday cup ‘joe is made from. But we’d like to introduce you to the outside – coffee’s superfruit. Can something made from coffeefruit taste refreshing? Yes, the name may say coffee but the flavor is pure, delicious fruit. Imagine supercharged antioxidant power swirling with fragrant, fresh tasting fruit – that’s 100% natural, free-radical crushing bai and bai5.
Wondering why you’ve never heard of coffeefruit? It just so happens to be one of nature’s best kept secrets. Previously, the bright, round cranberry-shaped fruit of the coffee plant was left behind after coffee harvesting, a valuable antioxidant resource discarded. Only recently was the casing that once nurtured and protected the coffee bean recognized for its health-enhancing properties. Now, from the coffee fields of Indonesia, bai brings the antioxidant benefits of coffeefruit directly to you.
WHAT ARE ANTIOXIDANTS?
Antioxidants are natural substances found in healthy foods and drinks that fight free radicals and stop the damaging process of oxidation. When you see a slice of apple turn from clear and fresh to mottled and brown you are witnessing the process of oxidation. When you prevent that action from occurring by misting a slice of apple with lemon juice you are preventing damage with the power and simplicity of antioxidants. It’s stress, lack of sleep, pollution, tobacco smoke, alcohol, direct sunlight, high fat and sugary foods, and even exercise that can cause oxidizing, cell-damaging free radicals to develop. It’s antioxidants that can fight back.
Where Do Our Antioxidants Come From?
We source our coffee from Indonesian coffee fields, located at high altitude. Some of the best coffee in the world is grown at high altitudes where sun-drenched days follow one after another. The intense Equatorial sun forces coffeefruit to protect the coffee bean it carries by thickening its skin against intense UV rays, developing compounds which are naturally antioxidant-rich. By the time it’s been plucked and separated from the coffee bean, coffeefruit has been transformed into a small but mighty warrior in the battle against cellular damage..
Pinch yourself, you’re not dreaming. bai and bai5 are good-for-you options to sugary sodas and artificially sweetened drinks. But you may be wondering how they taste so good without all of the calories. The answer is 100% natural of course! We use organic evaporated cane juice to sweeten bai antioxidant infusions and a combination of Organic Stevia and Erythritol in bai5 beverages to give you healthy you can taste.
The Glycemic Index (GI) provides a measurement of how carbohydrates impact blood sugar levels after they are consumed. While carbohydrates can often cause blood sugar levels to spike and then drop drastically resulting in a noticeable slump in energy, the natural sweeteners used in bai5 are low glycemic – meaning they don’t raise blood sugar levels in the body. That makes Organic Stevia, derived from an herb, and Erythritol (ih-RITH-ri-tawl), made from field corn, excellent, natural alternatives to sugar, especially for diabetics, dieters and all who are limiting their sugar consumption.
What does this mean to you? You can enjoy your favorite delicious, refreshing, antioxidant-packed infusions knowing you are doing good bai your body.
