There’s a new beverage on the market. Two new beverages actually – Bai and Bai5. Recently I was offered the opportunity to try give some of these new beverages a try.

Bai Antioxidant Beverages

ABOUT B’AI

Bai, and it’s five calorie version Bai5, are 100% natural and made from the most super of all superfruits, the coffeefruit. Bai beverages offer refreshing, exotic fruit flavors infused with one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, the fruit of the coffee bean. Bai is the first brand on the market based solely on the coffee “superfruit,” which provides a much higher concentration of antioxidants than commonly found fruits such as pomegranate or acai.

MY THOUGHTS

I received samples of Bai in the Mango Kauai variety and Bai5 in the Costa Rica Clementine and Panama Peach varieties. being a coffee lover I was curious what a beverage other than coffee that involved the coffee bean might taste like. I think that I half thought it would have a coffee-ish taste. it doesn’t. These beverages aren’t as sweet as many juices. They aren’t super sweet at all, in fact if they were less sweet they’d almost be bitter. Being a fan of many sweet things, I sort of didn’t want to like these. I gave the mango to hubby, as I don’t like mango. He said it was very good, and that he liked that it didn’t have a syrupy sweet flavor. I tried the Costa Rica Clementine and the Panama Peach, sharing a bit with my youngest. These aren’t pulpy or thick, their consistency is more of a thin juice. I found that they tasted much better cold than at room temperature, I didn’t care for them at room temp. Once chilled, they tasted quite different. The Panama Peach was my favorite of the two, the glasses were empty and we were looking for more before we realized that we’d drank it all. Antioxidants are getting more and more visibility. Bai mentions that one bottle of bai has more antioxidants than a bowl of blueberries, and is 250% of the average American’s daily intake of antioxidants. For those wondering about caffeine, which I did, the 70 mg of caffeine in each bottle is derived from the coffeefruit and white tea extract. I learned that the natural caffeine from coffeefruit and white tea extract does not undergo the denaturing process that occurs during coffee roasting, which means those healthful ingredients are infused in Bai in their natural states. I found Bai to taste better than I expected.

    I’ve never thought of the coffee bean as a coffeefruit before this review. Now I want to try this drink. The Costa Rica Clementine will be the one I will try first. Thanks!
