THIRSTY BUDDHA COCONUT WATER
How is your coconut water processed?
To ensure that our coconut water is safe for consumption and is shelf-stable, we use flash pasteurization. This involves heating the coconut water at a high temperature for a short amount of time. We have found that this is the most effective method of ensuring product safety while maintaining the maximum nutritional value.
Where do your coconuts come from?
Our coconuts are carefully and purposefully sourced from reputable farms in Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines.
Are any of your coconut waters from concentrate?
Our coconut water is not from concentrate and contains no additives. Only pure coconut love here!
Why is there such high sugar content in your coconut water?
Our coconut waters do not contain any added sugar whatsoever! The sugar content you’re seeing in the nutrition facts panel comes entirely from the sugar naturally occurring in the fruit itself.
How long is my coconut water good to drink after I open it?
If you can’t finish your coconut water in one sitting, that’s okay! As long as the product has been refrigerated after opening, we suggest consuming it within 4-5 days.
Does your coconut water need to be refrigerated?
Only after opening!
What are the benefits of drinking coconut water?
Besides being downright delicious, coconut water is high in vitamins, minerals, and essential electrolytes such as potassium, which is amazing to keep you hydrated and support your active lifestyle. You can think of it as nature’s sports drink, but obviously so much better!
Is coconut water safe to drink during pregnancy?
Since our coconut waters are flash pasteurized, they are safe from any potentially harmful bacteria. In fact, seeing as coconut water is a great source of vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes, drinking coconut water is a great way for mommies-to-be to ensure they’re staying hydrated and getting some essential nutrients. As with anything, it’s always best to speak to your health practitioner.
HUNGRY BUDDHA BARS
Where are your Hungry Buddha® protein bars produced?
Our bars are produced locally in Canada, in a dedicated nut-free facility.
How are your bars sweetened?
Our bars are sweetened with Monk Fruit as a great alternative to sugar. Monk fruit is a natural sweetener from plants with no calories or carbs.
What is the protein source in your bars?
We use high-quality plant-based protein like pea protein and brown rice protein to help keep you feeling full.
You say your bars are clean, but what does that really mean?
Our bars are carefully crafted with nothing but clean, plant-powered, and purposeful ingredients. Our bars are peanut-free, gluten–free, and formulated without soy, dairy, sugar alcohols or palm oils. Every bar is Certified Keto, Vegan and Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free and nut-free. When we say clean, we mean clean!
Can I eat your protein bars if I follow a Keto diet?
Absolutely! Given the net carb and low-sugar content in our bars, as well as the high amounts of good-for-you fats, Hungry Buddha bars are great to snack on if you’re following a Keto diet. In fact, they are even Keto-Certified by the Paleo Foundation, which is considered the ‘gold standard’ in keto certification.
What type of soluble tapioca fibre do you use in your protein snack bars?
The soluble tapioca fibre in our bars is resistant dextrin, and do not contain any isomaltooligosaccharides (IMOs).
Are your protein bars safe for people with peanut/nut allergies?
They sure are! Our bars are produced in a dedicated nut-free facility, making them perfectly safe to enjoy even for those with nut allergies.
Are Hungry Buddha® protein bars gluten-free?
All Hungry Buddha® bars are gluten-free.
Is it possible that I experienced bloating and gas after consuming your protein bars?
It’s no secret that our bars are high in soluble fibre (one bar contains almost half of your daily fibre requirement)! High fibre is a good thing and has so many incredible benefits, but for some of us, our digestive systems can be particularly sensitive when consuming high amounts of fibre in one sitting. Our advice? If you’re looking to increase your fibre, go slow.
THIRSTY BUDDHA SODA
What exactly is Thirsty Buddha Soda?
We’re so glad you asked! Thirsty Buddha Soda is a lot of great things, but all-in-all, it’s a better-for-you soda that tastes great too! Unlike traditional sodas, ours contains only 2g of sugar, is rich in fibre, and made with plant-based prebiotics for a healthy and happy gut. Think of it as Soda Reimaged. You’re welcome.
What are prebiotics and what is the difference between prebiotics and probiotics?
Probiotics are live strains of good bacteria, while prebiotics are specialized plant fibre that feed and stimulate the growth of good bacteria in the gut to support a strong immune system and gut microbiome. When there is enough prebiotics in the gut, it helps the number of probiotics to multiply and maintain a healthy balance. Getting more probiotics and prebiotics through your diet is important to maintain a healthy gut. Beyond digestion, the gut has an impact on the functioning of our body, mind, and immune system.
What type of prebiotics is Thirsty Buddha Soda made with?
Thirsty Buddha® Soda is made with the prebiotic fibre Inulin from Chicory Root. The deliciously sweet and refreshing way to load your gut with the prebiotics it needs!
When is the best time to consume it?
Whenever, wherever. No judgements here!
Is it okay to drink more than one can a day?
We get it, you can’t get enough! Given the high fibre content, we recommend starting slowly. You can always work your way up to more if and when it feels right for you.
What is Thirsty Buddha Soda sweetened with?
Sweetened with Monk Fruit, Stevia, and a touch of organic cane sugar. Each 355ml can contains only 2g of sugar, but all the yum you crave from a soda.
Does your Soda contain any caffeine?
Nope! Thirsty Buddha® Soda is caffeine-free so you can enjoy it at any time of day.
Does Thirsty Buddha Soda need to be refrigerated?
Only after opening, but it’s best served cold. We recommend drinking it in one sitting since as with any carbonated beverage, the longer it sits, the less bubbly it will be.
