FAQs

The Berry

Why can’t I find Aronia Berries at my grocery store?

Aronia Berries are sometimes known as “chokeberries,” largely due to their unexpectedly tart taste. People sometimes find it difficult to eat the berries themselves, which is why Tohi decided to harness their awesome nutritional power and put them in an easily accessible, low calorie, naturally sweetened beverage.

Where are Aronia Berries grown?

Aronia bushes are native to North America and flourish in the Midwest. Tohi works closely with farmers to source the highest quality Aronia Berries available.

Why haven’t I heard of Aronia Berries?

Aronia Berries have been used for centuries for their nutritional benefits and are now being rediscovered for these same reasons. Aronia Berries are under-commercialized in today’s world, and Tohi wants to spread the word about these amazing little berries and their countless health benefits. Until now, there hasn’t been an easy way for consumers to take advantage of the many benefits of Aronia Berries.

How do antioxidants work?

Antioxidants help to prevent the oxidation of free radicals in the body. Free radicals are unstable, electrically charged molecules in the body, often caused by stress and other environmental factors we come across in our daily lives. Free radicals are unstable because they don’t contain the correct number of electrons. These molecules can damage cells and cause chain reactions of destruction at a molecular level. Antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals by “donating” electrons to the unstable molecule. Aronia Berries contain the highest level of antioxidants of all the superberries to help fight off those nasty free radicals.

The Drink

Why is Tohi sold in aluminum cans?

About 300 million tons of plastic are produced each year, but only about 10% of this plastic is properly recycled. Aluminum cans have a higher recycling rate than plastic bottles and contain more recycled content. Aluminum cans also take up minimal space and weigh less than many other packaging options, meaning less fuel is required to transport them, contributing to a lower carbon footprint. Because exposure to light can accelerate shelf life, beverages stored in cans tend to stay fresh for longer than those stored in see-through plastic or glass containers. Tohi is committed to building a sustainable business that is friendly to the environment while delivering fresh, quality beverages to consumers.

What is monk fruit and why is it used in Tohi Beverages?

Monk fruit is an all-natural, low calorie source of sweetness. Monk fruit extract is 150-200 times sweeter than sugar, so only a very small amount is needed to create Tohi’s deliciously balanced flavor. Tohi beverages taste great without any added sugar or artificial sweeteners.
