General Info & Nutrition
What is REBBL?
REBBL soulfully crafts organic, plant-based Super Herb Elixirs. Using plants and herbs inspired by thousands of years of traditional usage, we create nutritionally dense, naturally functional beverages that are impact sourced and flat-out delicious. Through ethical sourcing of ingredients, REBBL empowers growers and farmers, honors the plant, and works to co-create a future without human trafficking.
Our name, REBBL, is an acronym for roots, extracts, berries, bark and leaves – the various plants we use to craft our beverages.
Are your beverages perishable or shelf stable?
All of our beverages are perishable and require refrigeration. If you’re sipping your favorite elixir on-the-go, we recommend consuming within a few hours of the bottle being outside a standard refrigerated temperature (roughly between 33-38°F).
Is REBBL Pasteurized?
Yes, our product is flash pasteurized — not high pressure pasteurized. The thermal process we use is much gentler than high pressure pasteurization, which allows us to get the most benefits from all the delicate super herbs in our products.
What happened to the Tonics?
In the fall of 2016, we made the difficult decision to discontinue our beloved tea-based herbal Tonics to instead focus on our Super Herb Elixirs. As a very small company at the time, this decision enabled us to be able to reach a broader community of future REBBL drinkers, while still celebrating the same functional super herbs featured in our Tonics. Sure, we miss the Tonics, but we are excited about our Elixirs and all the other future products in REBBL’s pipeline. And who knows, maybe the Tonics will make a come back some day 😉

How long is my Elixir good for after opening?
For optimal freshness, we recommend enjoying your Elixir within 3-5 days of opening — and it should always stay refrigerated!
Are your drinks gluten free?
Our products are naturally gluten free, as we don’t use any gluten-containing ingredients.
Are your drinks vegan?
All of our products are vegan except for our Turmeric Golden-Milk, Matcha Latte, Schizandra Berries & Creme, and Yerba Mate Mint Latte. These 4 flavors contain organic honey.
Can I heat my Elixir?
Yes, our beverages can reach 180 degrees F and still maintain the efficacy of the herbs, but they shouldn’t stay at this temperature for more than 30 seconds to a minute.
Why coconut sugar?
Coconut sugar, our low glycemic sweetener of choice, is minimally processed from coconut palm sap, and has the benefit of being the most nutritious and mineral-rich. The fructose levels of coconut sugar are only 35%-38% compared to approximately 50% in sugar cane and 70-97% in agave.
In addition to organic coconut sugar, our Elixirs are sweetened with organic stevia, a very special plant and important ingredient in achieving our delicious formulas. Using this ingredient allows us to reduce the overall sugar content of our beverages by 30% or more. It’s also zero on the glycemic index! With this ingredient we’re able to make delicious tasting beverages with much lower sugar content than comparable drinks.
What is quillaja?
You may be wondering about our ingredient quillaja. There is a lot of information out there to gather on the subject, and we realize some of it can be unclear. We hope the following helps you further refine your understanding of the subject and give some peace of mind regarding our use of this ingredient.
We have noticed the references to quillaja bark in many online sources as being “unsafe for consumption” are referring to the consumption of the bark itself — not the extract itself. We use quillaja extract. Quillaja has many hundreds (if not thousands) of years of traditional/historical use as a medicinal plant in the Andean culture and is highly regarded for its medicinal properties when used correctly. The extract from this unique Chilean plant has a variety of traditional uses but is also a natural emulsifier, which we use to keep small particles of coconut oils in the beverage from adhering to each other and floating to the top of the beverage in solid clumps.
We pride ourselves on an obsessive attention to ingredient purity, potency and authenticity, and this natural ingredient has met our very strict criteria. Ultimately, this ingredient has worked well for us in maintaining the delicious experience of our elixirs.
Do any of your beverages contain dairy, soy, refined sugars, fillers, carrageenan or gums?
Did you change the amount of reishi in your products?
You may have noticed the milligrams of reishi in our products has recently changed.
While it may seem that the 400 mg of reishi extract originally in our reishi products has decreased to 200 mg, the efficacy (strength!) of this herb in our beverages has actually increased. The reason for this is that we are now using a 70% Beta-glucan extract, which is a more concentrated extract of reishi and about 140 times as potent as the raw mushroom by weight.

Packaging & Environmental Impact
Why do you bottle in plastic?
The most important factor in our decision to use plastic over glass is that we currently do not have a choice to bottle our elixirs in glass. There are specific food laws that govern the type of processing that is necessary for the class of foods called “low acid foods.” There is only one type of processing that is legal for low acid beverages (like REBBL) that is also packaged in glass, and this is called “retort”, which is essentially pressure cooking the beverage after it has been bottled. The problem with retort is that you have to subject the beverage to incredibly high temperatures (250F) for 30 to 50 minutes(!). This is unacceptable for our products that are made with high levels of valuable and delicate herbal ingredients. So, if you eliminate retort processing as a possibility, there are no manufacturing facilities in North America that can bottle our Elixirs in glass. If we were making juices, we could use glass bottles easily, because these are all considered “high acid beverages” with a pH below 4.2. Everything we make has a pH above 4.2 and is thus controlled by the processing authority of the state of California.
With all that said, we recognize the magnitude of concern around plastic, and in true REBBL nature, we are currently in the process of transitioning to a more sustainable package. In addition to our continued focus on impact sourcing and creating a future without human trafficking, REBBL is excited to share our commitment to 100% Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic. By early 2020, REBBL will be one of the first companies in the food industry to transition to 100% rPET. This process has been complex and costly, but one that we have diligently been working on and are proud to prioritize. We see this as an opportunity to step up as a leader and boldly go where no ready-to-drink functional beverage brand has gone before.
As you may know, recycling is not just about consumers separating used plastics into the right bin. It’s also about the markets for our used goods. The reality is, only a small percentage of the country’s ‘recyclables’ actually go through the full process, as it is cheaper to create new plastic rather than use post-consumer recycled plastic. By boldly transitioning to 100% rPET (recycled polyethylene terephtalate), we aim to grow the demand for rPET – that is, plastic that has previously been used for packaging. Ultimately, we hope this shift away from virgin plastic helps to revolutionize the food industry and create long-term, close-looped solutions in packaging and sustainability at large.
