Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drinks

I just became aware of a gluten free product that is perfect for hot summer days or for those following the Doctor-recommended B.R.A.T. Diet (an acronym for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast). Organic B.R.A.T.™ feel better drinks are made with ingredients that settle an upset stomach and help to calm vomiting & diarrhea while also naturally restoring electrolytes and nutrients. Additionally, Organic B.R.A.T. Feel Better Drink is a refreshing milk alternative for those who suffer from lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance and other food allergies.


Organic B.R.A.T.™ has four flavors to choose from including Vanilla, Chocolate Honey, Original and my favorite Cinnamon Toast.

Organic B.R.A.T.™ Feel Better Drinks are perfect for children and adults suffering from a variety of ailments such as: 

  • The flu virus 
  • Digestive disorders 
  • Morning sickness 
  • Side effects from Chemotherapy 
  • Symptoms of dehydration

Founders, Greg and Ilsa Toepfer, were inspired to create Organic B.R.A.T.™ after their children came down with the stomach flu. They wanted a non-dairy but "milk-like" beverage that their children would actually drink and enjoy. They incorporated the tummy-settling principles of the B.R.A.T. Diet by using organic brown rice as the base along with banana and apple purees, and then added an electrolyte-balanced ratio of vitamins and minerals. Organic B.R.A.T.™ is free of pesticides, common allergens and any added sugar or preservatives. Organic B.R.A.T.™ is vitamin and calcium fortified and contains only 100 calories per serving. 

If you are not on the B.R.A.T diet and want to use this product as a base for a an electrolyte rich protein shake, click here for my article with some tasty protein shake recipes. In the Chicagoland area you can find Organic B.R.A.T at Jewel-Osco, Cub Foods, and Dominick's. You can also order from their website.
