FAQs – Super Berries

Here at BōKU®, we firmly believe in the power of whole, healing foods. When it comes to organic food versus non-organic, the choice is easy for us. For something to be Certified Organic, it has to meet certain criteria that we believe all food should be upheld to.

To be certified organic the food must…

– Contain NO GMO’s! What’s a GMO you ask? It stands for Genetically Modified Organism. We could really go on all day about why we do not want them in our products, and especially do not want to feed them to our wonderful customers. To learn more about GMO’s, see our FAQ “What is a GMO?”

– Be grown and harvested in a safe and sustainable manner, with NO artificial fertilizers, NO artificial pesticides and NO irradiation!

– Contain NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives!

Why else should you choose organic?

– Organic agriculture preserves natural resources and biodiversity.

– It supports animal health and welfare (for meat products, certified organic means they have not be subjected to growth hormones or harmful antibiotics).

– Organic foods have been shown to have better nutritional value than conventionally grown food.

This is called a “sachet” or “desiccant” and it is there solely to remove any moisture that may get into your product after you reseal it. Don’t worry, our sachets/desiccants are made our of natural clay. This means in the off chance it should open up in your product, there is absolutely no cause for alarm. These should be left as-is in your product to keep it at optimal freshness.
BōKU® Super Berries are real Organic fruits that are low temperature dried and gently ground into a powder. Real whole fruits don’t dissolve in water. What does dissolve in water is sugar flavored with fruit extracts. This is what most people are used to in powdered “fruit drinks.”

Remember to stir or shake your BōKU® Super Berries immediately before consuming for a blast of delicious nutrition!

BōKU® Super Berries is comprised of powered juice from Organic Goji Berries and from whole Organic Berries, Cherries and Pomegranates.  Most of our ingredients are immediately “freeze-dried,” so the nutrition is “locked in” right at the source.  Unless you are making your own fresh fruit juice, commercial liquid fruit juice varies in stability and quality.
If you are planning to skip a meal in order to “cleanse,” BōKU® Super Berries can support your detox. It wouldn’t be used in place of a meal where you want a larger amount of carbs, fat and protein.
Some people enjoy BōKU® Super Berries as a refreshing drink when they wake up.  Others enjoy it throughout the day as a healthy alternative to flavored beverages.
Mix one teaspoon (3 grams) of BōKU® Super Berries with water, or add to your favorite smoothie.
Consuming fruits high in anti-oxidants are beneficial for health and well-being.  Many experts agree that the darker the berry, the more beneficial it is to eat or drink.  The berries included in BōKU® Super Berries are all vibrant dark berries!!
