a little about..


Hi I’m Baotic, a funky little Baobab health drink!

I strive to be the most Healthy, Happy and Helpful little drink around. I’m a little learner and I like to innovate and grow, but let me tell you what I have in my pocket for now…

I’m bags full of Vitamin C. I’m top of my class for Antioxidants. I carry the ultimate Minerals, and no-one can touch me on Fibre! The best way to get something outa me is to put me in your belly! Try me for my zingy exotic sherbety taste!

I’m all GREEN on the traffic light system (low sugar, oh yea!). I’m dairy free, , high fibre, zero fat, low calorie, gluten free, and vegan!

Sure, I can benefit you, but I also love to help others! 10% profit goes to community development in Africa.

I’m all Natural. I take minimal processing. From tree, to pod, to powder, to Meeeee!  I’m the most zingy, most powerful super-fruit around.

Let’s be friends and live healthy and happy together – xx
