Why are Tribal Smoothies better for my health?
Our products are designed to work just like others in the market, but the health of our customers and our planet is a primary concern at Tribal. This means that we don’t like using synthetic ingredients like maltodextrin in our smoothies. Tribal smoothies are always non-GMO, natural and organic, so that you can fuel reliably without any risk to your long-term health.
All the sugar in a Tribal pouch is naturally occurring, and nothing has been added!
Glucose is the body's primary and most effective fuel. Our focus is on ensuring your body gets the fuel you need to perform at your best. That is why our products may appear to have a higher carbohydrate level than our competitors, but we aren't trying to hide anything.
No, Tribal Active is GMO-Free so we steer clear of sythetic ingredients.
Maltodextrin is a synthetic starch used by most food manufactures; In fact, 80% of consumers don’t know that they consume it regularly in their everyday diet. Like other starches, it is a carbohydrate that is used to improve the flavour, thickness and shelf-life of a product. It's also used to give products the appearance of a lower sugar content and is often a core ingredient in products claiming to be low carb. It is currently being researched for correlations with a multitude of health issues.
When will Tribal pouches be recyclable?
Our recyclable pouches are actually in testing and look to be coming soon! The results so far are encouraging, and we have just entered shelf-life testing so we can assure you that our pouches remain versatile and long-lasting.
We also have other product packing in the test phase. We can’t make any promises yet, but as soon as we have something to shout about you will hear!
