It's great news for the baobab family. The colossal company that is Coca-Cola has introduced baobab into one of their low-calorie soft drinks. This is a sign that baobab is growing in popularity (yay!) and will continue to grow the more people find out about all its amazing benefits.
The brand in question, owned by Coca-Cola, is called Aquarius Vive and debuted their drink in Spain. If all goes well then they'll be introducing it to markets across the world. Which means it could be in your corner store soon!

Here's what a Coca-Cola spokesperson said:
“We wanted to have an exotic ingredient which could give new news in the product proposition, a differentiation versus other beverages in the market, and finish up our positioning as a beverage which fits in healthy and active lifestyle for everyone.”
The Aquarius sports drink brand was launched in 1992, followed by Aquarius Zero. Aquarius Vive, which is the first to use baobab extract and took two years to develop, comes in two flavours: Lima Limón and Tropical.
