Expo Next: Daily Llama? Check Out These Plant-Based Supplements

After coronavirus concerns prompted the postponement of Natural Products Expo West, we shared an offer to post items for Good Food companies that had planned to break news in Anaheim. In the latest in this series, we feature Llama Naturals — a Naturally Chicago member — and the two plant-based, better-for-you dietary supplements that the company planned to roll out at Expo.

Llama Naturals is a one-year-old Chicago-based company that made an instant splash, as its Kids Multivitamin Bites won the NEXTY Award for Best Multivitamin at New Hope Network’s 2019 SupplySide West trade show. So founders Brad Baum and Kevin Brown were looking forward to introducing their newest products at New Hope’s Natural Products Expo West that was scheduled for March 3-7: Llama Naturals’ Belly Bites, a plant-based organic prebiotic and probiotic chewy for children, and their plant-based Multivitamin Bites for kids and adults.

They did not get to: cancellations resulting from coronavirus worries caused New Hope to postpone Expo West, with a plan to reschedule sometime this spring. But Naturally Chicago has your back, Llama Naturals.

Here’s the scoop on Belly Bites, in their own words (from a release dated March 6).

“Llama Naturals today announced the launch of their Peach Mango Belly Bites, a new plant-based dietary supplement for kids. Llama Naturals’ Belly Bites contain Organic Prebiotic Fiber plus Probiotics, and are made of real fruit with no added sugar.

‘Most probiotic gummies for kids are loaded with sugars or sweeteners which are actually bad for their guts,’ says Brad Baum, CEO at Llama Naturals. ‘We’re very happy to finally offer a probiotic & prebiotic bite made of real fruit and no added sugar.’

Features and benefits of Llama Naturals Belly Bites include:

• Made with real fruit and no added sugar, so you don’t have eat something bad when you are trying to have something good.

• Probiotics and Prebiotics. Most probiotics do not include prebiotics, which are important because they feed healthy bacteria in your gut. Without prebiotics, probiotics may not be as effective.

• USDA Organic, Plant-Based, Vegan, Non-GMO

Llama Naturals Kids Probiotic & Prebiotic Bites are now available starting at $21.95 on Amazon.com. They will be available soon on www.llamanaturals.com.”

And the breaking news on the Multivitamin Bites:

“Llama Naturals today introduced their line of Plant-Based Multivitamin Bites for kids and adults. Llama Naturals’ Plant-Based Vitamin Bites are made of real fruit, no added sugar, with natural vitamins from fruits and vegetables.

Llama Naturals had been quietly operating since last year to gain consumer feedback and make product improvements. At the SupplySide West trade show in October 2019, the brand won the NEXTY Award for BEST Multivitamin for its Kids Multivitamin Bites.

“Most gummy vitamins are loaded with sugars or sweeteners and include synthetic vitamins often made in China.” says Brad Baum, CEO at Llama Naturals. “We believe consumers deserve to have an all-natural vitamin without all the bad stuff.”

Features and benefits of Llama Naturals Multivitamin Bites include:

• Made with real fruit and no added sugar, so you don’t have eat something bad when you are trying to have something good.

• Natural vitamins, not synthetic. Most vitamins are made with synthetic vitamins from overseas, but this can lead to lower absorption. Llama Naturals sources its vitamins in the USA from real fruits and vegetables.

• USDA Organic, Plant-Based, Vegan, Non-GMO

Llama Naturals Multivitamin Bites are available in Kids and Adult versions, starting at $24.50 on www.llamanaturals.com, and on Amazon.com.
