Bonga Foods

on June 4, 2015


Half The SkyI just tried out Bonga Foods and I love their products.  I have been working hard on eating healthier and living a healthier lifestyle and Bonga Foods is a great addition to those goals.  These are fortified with the Baobab fruit which is a superfood from Africa.  It’s very rich in vitamin C and other health nutrients.  The products that I got are the packets you can add to any drink.  I put mine in water.  They taste great, sometimes I find products like this do not but Bonga Foods has a good taste.  They also have lots of fiber so great for your digestive system.  I put mine in a water bottle in the afternoon.  The vitamins and nutrients really help with that afternoon sluggish feeling.  I feel healthier and more energized after using them.

Here is some additional information from the company:

Founded by moms Mary Grace, Nancy Nehoray, and Michaeline Heydari, Bonga Foods uses African super-food to create organic chews and powders. Their main superfood, the Baobab fruit, is a wild-harvested super fruit growing all over South Africa and bursting with ten times more antioxidants than blueberries, while naturally rich in fiber and vitamin C. It’s been acknowledged as having “six times as much vitamin C as oranges, twice as much calcium as milk, and plenty of B vitamins, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, and antioxidants.” (via Forbes).
Bonga Foods’ Baobab Powder is just as impressive, consisting of over 50% fiber by weight, the majority of which is soluble fiber. That’s over 10 times the antioxidant power of blueberries, pomegranate, goji berries, and even açaí, and gram for gram, it has more calcium than milk.

The powder is great for mixing into baked goods, adding to yogurt, smoothies, or even mixing into your water-bottle, and the chews themselves are just as healthy and tasty, and especially good for kids, coming in four flavors including Raspberry, Strawberry, Mango, and Pomegranate.

Really reinforcing the company’s central theme of “gratitude” (as Bonga stands for “gratitude” in Zulu) 10% of Bonga Foods proceeds go back to the women who harvest the baobob trees through the Bonga Foundation, an organization set up to give back to the harvesters and their families and to help protect the ancient trees.

Bonga Foods is promoting a Kick Starter campaign right now you can check it out here!

I received this item complimentary or at a reduced price for my honest review.  However, I only recommend products I truly love and use to my readers. #AmazonReview
