FAQ

 
 

Where does the name OBA come from?

“Oba” actually means king or ruler in a few languages of West Africa, which is one of greatest regions for baobab trees. It is also the name given to the goddess of the River in Benin. And it sits at the heart of the word “baobab” because we intend to capture the spirit of this magical fruit in every bottle we produce.

 

What ingredients do you use to create OBA?

OBA is made using only natural ingredients: baobab juice, acerola juice, lemon juice, acacia fiber, natural flavor and erythritol (natural sweetener with zero calories and sugars).

 

How do we make OBA?

OBA brings new life to one of the world’s oldest fruits straight from the savannah to you. After our local teams harvest the baobab fruits, the pulp is carefully used to make our elixirs under the supervision of our chef.

 

What is erythritol?

Erythritol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol found in our bodies as well as in fruits, such as pears and melons, vegetables and mushrooms. The organic erythritol used in OBA is produced through a natural fermentation process.

 

What is acerola?

Acerola, also known as Barbados cherry, is an organic superfruit and one of the richest sources of Vitamin C in the world. Also high in Vitamin A and dietary fiber, we use it in OBA to boost antioxidants.

 

Why is OBA separated?

The appearance of OBA is all natural — we do not filter, preserve or add any fillers. Separation is natural and, as long as it is within the ‘consume by’ date and refrigerated properly, a two-tone drink does not indicate spoilage. Always refrigerate your bottle of OBA, shake before consuming and enjoy on or before the ‘consume by’ date.

 

Is OBA suitable for people with diabetes?

We’ve received much positive feedback from diabetics who drink OBA. Our carbohydrate content is low and we use erythritol, which has a zero glycemic index. We are confident that OBA is a good addition to their diet.

 

Is OBA gluten-free?

All of our references have gluten-free recipes.

 

Is baobab kosher?

All our ingredients are kosher certified. We are currently under audit for certification.

 

Is OBA organic?

The baobab pulp we use is 100% certified organic, as is most of the other ingredients used in OBA. We are currently under audit for certification that our final products are certified organic.
