Bali’s founder, Edward Farley, has spent the last 3 years working with local growers in Southeast Asia to bring rare and unique fruit to the US. After years of working tirelessly and building local connections, he launched Bali in March 2018 in 3 different flavours. Bali Glow contains only one ingredient: 100% pure mangosteen juice. Bali Life contains two ingredients: pure mangosteen juice and pure pomegranate juice for a sweeter and bolder experience. Bali Tao also contains two ingredients: pure mangosteen juice and pure green tea for a smooth yet decadent drink. All of Bali’s juices contain no additives or preservatives and are all under 100 calories per bottle.
But what precisely is mangosteen?
Meet the Mighty Mangosteen
Mangosteen is a rare and exotic fruit that, despite its rarity, has grown a cult following in the US. Since around 2010, people have been flocking to this unique fruit spending $2 billion for a juice that not only offers a sweet and creamy taste, but also many health benefits.
The fruit is small, with a hard shell on the outside and white flesh on the inside in the form of a flower. Its flesh is naturally sweet and juicy and is enjoyed by people of all ages all over the world. To cultivate this special fruit, the mangosteen tree requires 3 types of nutrients which only come from near the sea, heavy rain, and exposure to strong sunlight. As a result, 90% of the world’s mangosteen supply comes from Southeast Asia. Mangosteen trees can take up to 15 years before bearing fruit and sometimes only bear fruit every two years.
Mangosteen fruit is filled with Xanthones, nature’s most powerful antioxidants. This rare antioxidant is simply found in a few different fruits, and mangosteen contains the highest amount. Locals use this fruit in diverse ways and believe that it improves the overall condition of the skin and even helps stop or cure eczema. Fruit juices are a naturally hydrating way to enjoy powerful benefits to nearly every part of the body.
Bali is based in California and can be found in all Albertsons, Vons and Pavilions stores.
