You might be wondering, “...but what does this blend of flavors taste like?” Well, then let’s quickly go through each flavor note! Black currant provides a fruity and sweet-tart flavor, while açaí compliments that with a hint of chocolatey, nuttiness. Last but not least, elderflower rounds off the flavor combination perfectly with a refreshing floral aroma.

BOOST your day

BOOST's dynamic trio consists of a fruity classic, an ancient European home remedy, and a miracle fruit from the Amazon. Black currant, elderflower and açaí will offer you numerous health benefits – let's dive into each one!

 

BOOST Ingredient: Black Currant | waterdrop®

Black currant

Those of you who have had black currants before will know that they are not only a real treat to the palate, but they’re also commonly found in many gardens, maybe even yours. These little berries can be a refreshingly tart snack for in between meals, as well as provide you with important nutrients. Among other things, they are full of antioxidants and contain vitamin C, iron, potassium and fiber. Vitamin C, for example, reduces fatigue and gives you the energy you need to get through the day.

 

In fact, black currant contains three times as much vitamin C as a lemon. But that's not all: Vitamin E can also be found in these little berries. Vitamin E strengthens your immune system and prevents inflammatory processes. In June and July, black currant will reach its optimal ripeness – it's definitely worth picking up a few at a local market near you.

BOOST Ingredient: Elderflower | waterdrop®

Elderflower

These little flowers come from the elder tree, which generally grows as a shrub or small tree. They bloom in summer and attract butterflies, birds as well as bees. Elderflowers don't just provide a luscious scent but elderflower beverages are also a popular home remedy for colds and coughs because they are filled with countless benefits such as B vitamins. Vitamins B6 and B12, for example, support your metabolism and help you with energy.

 

Elderflowers don’t just smell good but they’re also delicious. These delicate blossoms have a sweet taste that perfectly complements BOOST's two other ingredients.

BOOST Ingredient: Açaí | waterdrop®

Açaí

Recently, you’ll be able to find an abundance of products made from the açaí fruit in the market – from the açaí berry itself to açaí juice. The fruit originally comes from the tropical rainforests of South America. They have been dubbed a “superfruit” for their many benefits. In fact, these berries have been a staple food for people in the Amazon region for centuries.

 

So, what exactly is açaí? What does an açaí berry look like anyway? By just looking at them, they might remind you of blueberries with their small size and blue-ish purple skin. However, don’t let the size fool you – they are filled with nutrients! One of these little berries will provide you with fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins D and E. We’ve extracted these valuable nutrients from açaí berries and included them in our BOOST microdrinks. This way, you can enjoy the refreshing taste and get the nutrients you need all at once!

How can I enjoy BOOST?

The great thing about our microdrinks is that you can enjoy them however you like. Simply dissolve the microdrinks in still or sparkling water and enjoy. The amount of water will determine the intensity of the flavors. We all have different tastes and preferences – some may prefer a more flavorful taste and use less water with one cube, while others prefer a more subtle taste, so they add more water to their waterdrop®. That said, as BOOST carries a very intense aroma, we would recommend that you start 1 cube with around 20oz of water (600ml) and adjust from there. If you’re in the mood for something warm, you can also add BOOST to warm water and enjoy its sweet aroma.

One of the most popular flavors

“It’s my favorite from smell to taste and gives me a boost”, “One of my favorite flavors - light and refreshing”, “Boost is really good! The elderflower is the dominant flavor which I love - and it makes my water so much easier to drink”.

 

BOOST is without a doubt one of our most popular flavors. It is loved by children and adults alike and can be enjoyed in various situations – anytime, anywhere. Whether it be with ice cold sparkling water on a warm summer day or with still water on a rainy fall day. Needless to say, our customers are thrilled with this combination of flavors.

 

Moreover, in the process of creating our microdrinks, it was important to us to extract out fructose from the fruits and plants that we use, as we would like to offer our product to a wider range of people – including people with fructose malabsorption. Therefore, all of our microdrinks, including BOOST, are 100% sugar-free and vegan. They contain natural fruit and plant extracts, valuable vitamins, and are slightly sweetened to help bring out the delicious flavors – without any preservatives, artificial coloring or unnecessary chemicals. Their compact size of 2g per cube means that they will fit comfortably into any pocket or backpack and you’ll be able to enjoy a tasty drink on-the-go with your reusable water bottle. That little energy booster you need for work or the gym will not be as bulky anymore.
