Fruits and Vegetables in a Bottle


Fruits and Vegetables in a Bottle | Healthy Living

We went to Agrilink 2016 last October 8 and one of the exhibitor booths caught our attention. The exhibitor, a silver haired man, was selling fruits and vegetables in a bottle at an affordable price. There was a variety of flavors available such as Guyabano, Langka, Watermelon, Bulanglang, Kalyote and Aysaba to name a few. Curious as we are, we introduced ourselves to the silver haired man and asked him about the products.

The man introduced himself as Robert Ong, an architect turned entrepreneur. He described his bottled products as real freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable nectar from the freshest produce of the local farmers of Batangas. They are ready to drink and uses all natural ingredients. Plus points is that the products are FDA approved (Food and Drugs Administration). He emphasized to us that he wants his products affordable for those who will be needing proper nutrition thus explains why they have relatively low price.

Mang Robert also shared how he started manufacturing his products. On his personal journey to a healthy lifestyle, he found it hard to find  restaurants and stores that will cater his healthy choices. This is despite of his observation that Batangas is a home to fresh produce of fruits and vegetables. He then saw the opportunity to make use of Batangas’ fresh fruits and vegetables.

Mang Robert’s desire to share his advocacy of healthy living was further ignited by the death of his mother. His mother died due to deteriorating health and lack of good nutrition. This event fueled him to share his healthy living advocacy especially to the elderly who needs proper nutrition even more.

Equipped with his advocacy in healthy living and his passion to help the farmers of Batangas, Mang Robert started conducting product development studies at Food Development Center in Bicutan with his researcher and his staff  from UPLB-Food Science Department. They were able to develop fruit and vegetable nectar drinks until Mang Robert was able to build his manufacturing plant in 2013 and started manufacturing fruit and vegetable nectar in 2014.

As we believe in the products, we bought five bottles of different variants including Bulanglang, Kalyote, Aysaba, Guyabano and Langka. I was hesitant to taste the Bulanglang and Kalyote at first since I can’t imagine how freshly squeezed vegetables will taste like. When I tasted them, they tasted good actually. They have a somewhat garlicky and somewhat sweet taste with a hint of ginger. It was because Bulanglang, Kalyote and Aysaba have pineapple, garlic, radish and ginger which are known to have healthy benefits.

  • Garlic has Allicin, a powerful anti-oxidant that helps fight infection and bacteria.
  • Ginger helps fight cold and flu.
  • Radish acts as natural decongestant of the respiratory.

Langka and Guyabano taste exactly as they are, only in liquid form. Guyabano is my personal favorite as it tastes really good.

Aside from believing in the products, we were also inspired by Mang Robert’s story and advocacy. We have agreed with him that we’ll also help in sharing his advocacy by distributing the fruits and vegetables in a bottle. Since we’re sharing the same advocacy with him that is to share healthy living and make it affordable to those who’ll be needing proper nutrition, we’re selling the bottled products also at an affordable price of Php 45 to Php 55 per bottle.
