What is Bhoomi?
Bhoomi is a Sanskrit word for Mother Earth. We make cold-pressed cane water made from nourishing sugarcane stalks. Our cane water consists primarily of the naturally-occurring water squeezed out of a sugarcane stalk, which has approx 80% water content. Sugarcane water is naturally filled with electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and phytonutrients—so it hydrates more effectively than water alone. We mix our sugarcane water with a blend of ancient Ayurvedic super-botanicals for recovery, immunity and superfood properties.
What are the benefits of drinking cane water?
Packed with powerful phytonutrients, cold-pressed water from the sugarcane stalk has been enjoyed as an Ayurvedic elixir for centuries. We infuse our delicious beverages with super-botanicals to rejuvenate the body and mind
Sugarcane juice? Isn’t that just pure sugar dissolved in water?
NO, and here’s why: Bhoomi Cane Water Elixir is a Certified Low Glycemic Index beverage. With low glycemic foods such as Bhoomi, the breakdown of complex sugars to simple sugars takes more time. This longer time period required for full digestion of the carbs in the drink accounts for the increase in the body’s blood glucose levels over time. This increase is more tolerable for our bodies to work with, and brings us back to balance to achieve glucose homeostasis.  
When is the best time for me to drink Bhoomi?
Bhoomi is a delicious way to hydrate after working out, in the morning, after a night of drinking, and any other time you want to taste the liquid love! Turmeric is for IMMUNITY + Moringa is for SUPERFOOD + Ginger is for RECOVERY +
How long does Bhoomi stay fresh after opening?
For optimal freshness, we recommend enjoying your beverage within 3 days of opening. Keep refrigerated.
What is Amla?
Amla, also known as Indian gooseberry or amalaki, is a small fruit that is considered one of the most powerful rejuvenating herbs in Ayurveda. In Sanskrit, Amalaki means “the sustainer” and has traditionally been prescribed to strengthen the immune system due to its high levels of vitamin C.
What is Moringa?
Moringa oleifera, often called the “miracle tree”, is a fast-growing leafy tree that thrives in hot, arid climates. Moringa has become recognized as a powerful tool for improving nutrition around the world due to its nutrient density and resistance to drought. In Ayurvedic wisdom, moringa is valued for its powerful anti-inflammatory and energy-boosting benefits. Moringa provides vitamins and minerals and nourishes the body with essential amino acids.
What is Ashwagandha?
Ashwagandha is a plump shrub that bears red fruit about the size of a raisin. The ashwagandha plant is most well-known for its restorative, rejuvenating, and stress-relief benefits. In Ayurveda, there are specific herbs with adaptogenic benefits—ashwagandha is one of them. Adaptogens are substances (a combination of amino acids, vitamins, and herbs) that modulate your reaction to a changing environment. Adaptogens are thought to help the body cope with stress, anxiety, and insomnia.  
What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda is a natural system of medicine that originated in India more than 3,000 years ago. The term Ayurveda is derived from the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Thus, Ayurveda translates to knowledge of life.

Based on the idea that disease is due to an imbalance or stress in a person's consciousness, Ayurveda encourages certain lifestyle interventions and natural therapies to regain a balance between the body, mind, spirit, and the environment .With a unique emphasis on total wellness, the art and science of Ayurveda work to harmonize our internal and external worlds.

What does “cold-pressed” mean?
Cold-pressing is a means of juicing fruits or vegetables by applying pressure exerted by a hydraulic press. An average home blender or juicer spins at a very high speed, which creates heat and kills many minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements in the process. Cold-pressing, on the other hand, preserves these vital elements so that you can receive the highest possible nutritional value.
Is Bhoomi pasteurized?
No, Bhoomi products are never heated. Our beverages are produced using a High Pressure Process (HPP) that protects the enzymes and nutrients, but eliminates the micro-organisms.
Is Bhoomi perishable or shelf-stable?
All of our beverages are perishable and require refrigeration. Once opened, we recommend consuming your drink within a few hours for optimal freshness, but Bhoomi will last in the refrigerator for 3-5 days after opening.
Why does Bhoomi separate?
Separation is natural for cold-pressed juices—all the good stuff settles at the bottom. Before drinking your Bhoomi beverage, give it a good shake!
Is Bhoomi gluten-free?
Yes, our products are naturally gluten-free, as we don’t use any gluten-containing ingredients.
Is Bhoomi vegan?
Yes, all Bhoomi beverages are certified vegan.  
Is Bhoomi paleo?
Yes, all Bhoomi beverages are certified paleo.
Does Bhoomi contain caffeine?
No, Bhoomi does not contain any caffeine.  
Can I heat my Bhoomi beverage?
Yes, our beverages can reach 180 degrees Fahrenheit for no more than one minute and still maintain the efficacy of the herbs. We recommend pouring your Bhoomi beverage into a pot and heating on the stovetop, rather than the microwave.

SUGARCANE BOTTLES

How are Bhoomi’s plant-based bottles made?
Our bottles are made from 100% plant-based material made from Sugarcane. Unlike traditional plastics, which uses fossil-sourced materials such as oil or natural gas, Bhoomi's bottle material is made from sugarcane, a renewable raw material. Sugarcane is well known to capture CO2 from the atmosphere during its production, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emission. Our bottles are made from 100% plants and 0% fossil fuel!
Do Bhoomi’s bottles contain BPA?
No, our bottles are certified BPA-free and are safe to reuse.
Are Bhoomi’s bottles recyclable?
Yes, our bottles and caps are 100% recyclable!
Are Bhoomi’s bottles biodegradable?
No, our bottles are 100% recyclable.
What are Bhoomi’s bottle caps made of?
Bhoomi’s bottle caps are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) material, which is fully recyclable. Our bottle caps are not made of sugarcane or plants... yet!
What are the benefits of switching from traditional polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles to Bhoomi’s I'm Green™ Polyethylene bottles?
89.5% Reduction of greenhouse emissions (12 tons CO2 eq annually). Based on just 60,000 units, this is the equivalent of the carbon emissions of using 4,841 liters of gasoline or 2.5 cars driven yearly!

62.6% Reduction of fossil fuel consumption. If the primary package was switched from a PET bottle to a bio HDPE bottle to annually deliver 60,000 units, fossil fuel consumption could be reduced by nearly 135,000 MJ—equivalent to nearly 22 barrels of oil! 22%

Reduction of water consumption. Making this packaging change for an annual volume of 60,000 bottles saves about 227,350 gallons of water. This is equivalent to saving enough water for 36 people to shower daily for an entire year!

How did you come up with the impact numbers?
Bhoomi applied and was accepted into a Packaging Climate Optimization project—a partnership between Climate Collaborative and Trayak.

This project connects Climate Collaborative committed companies to Trayak, who uses a cost-effective, streamlined life cycle analysis (LCA) to quickly benchmark existing packaging and develop climate-improved alternatives.

Bhoomi, Climate Collaborative, and Trayak worked together to collect packaging system information (materials, conversion processes, masses, etc.) and perform the analysis with Trayak’s LCA tool, EcoImpact-COMPASS (Comparative Packaging Assessment).

Switching to a bio HDPE bottle showed a plethora of benefits for Bhoomi.

Why do Bhoomi’s bottles feel like plastic?
I'm Green™ Polyethylene retains the same properties, performance and application versatility of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles. That means you get the same look and feel as a traditional plastic bottle, but in an eco-friendly form that benefits the earth! I'm Green™ Polyethylene is considered a “bio-plastic”, so it can be recycled within the recycling stream.

BHOOMI'S MISSION

Why does Bhoomi work with minority farmers?
While we share Bhoomi with you, there is a more important story that needs to take precedence—the tumultuous history of sugarcane and its impact on communities of color. Building a thriving sugarcane company would be meaningless if we did not address this issue and support African American sugarcane farmers.

The sugar trade was built on the back of slavery and oppression and fueled colonization, which disenfranchised communities of color across the world like never before. The sugarcane industry buoyed the United States’ early economy, but it did so at a horrific cost. According to an article in The Guardian by Debbie Weingarten, “the forced labor of hand-cutting, grinding, and boiling cane was excruciating and dangerous. People said there was brutality in cotton, but death in cane.”

It is impossible to deny that the long-lasting effects of slavery and the sugarcane industry affect Southern farmers still to this day. In an industry that has long discriminated against Black farmers, racism is still an everyday reality. In 1983, there were approximately 60 Black sugarcane farmers in Louisiana. Today, there are only four. As a result of discriminatory practices, the Center for American Progress documents that African-American farmers currently make up less than 2 percent of all farmers in the United States.

Here at Bhoomi, we are committed to working with Black sugarcane farmers to support fair and regenerative agriculture practices and address equitable economies for justice. You can find our farming partners on Instagram:
