Can

We opted for aluminium cans because they are the most environmentally friendly packaging.

With a 100% recycling rate, cans are the perfect environmental object... provided they are properly recycled after use, of course.

Ingredients

Health superfoods are natural foods with exceptional nutritional value. They have a very high concentration of minerals, vitamins, trace elements, micronutrients, essential fatty acids and/or antioxidants in a small volume. Perfect for boosting energy and immunity.

Natural flavour comes from a natural product that is processed to concentrate it. Various techniques can be used to extract the aromatic compounds found in nature. Some of them are really simple, like infusion, which we have all experienced.

Another way to extract the aroma from the original fruit is by dehydration, removing the water from the plant or fruit, or by distillation. Extraction with a water- or alcohol-based solvent is also a very common process.

All of these physical processes result in a highly concentrated liquid product that is perfectly suited to food preparation.
