What is Taro Dream?

Taro Dream began with a mother's love and her search to save her daughter's life. The perfect drink? It’s quite a claim, but Koa is quite a beverage. Purified by nature and squeezed from 9 fresh fruits and vegetables. Koa is unlike anything else, redefining our ideas about healthy living. Koa delivers only the healthy part of fruits and vegetables – more than you may have thought possible from a natural beverage.

The food you eat can heal your body

A message from our founder

When my youngest daughter, Alexa, was born, she was diagnosed with a life threatening illness that affected her digestive process.   After exhausting every known medical treatment and food without success and watching my daughter’s condition worsen by the day, I remembered stories I had heard about poi being served to infants in Hawaii.  I arranged for poi to be shipped to California where I was living and, for the next four years, it was the only food that my daughter could eat,  mixed with just a few other foods, without  severe reactions.  Alexa’s doctors were amazed at her sudden recovery and suggested that their many patients suffering from digestive disorders could benefit from this food.   

Our Roots

Taro Dream was conceived with a mother's love for her daughter. Today we aspire to combine the best of science with something about how we are a a company grounded in both values and scientific research.

POI STORIES



from the lives Taro Dream has touched

 

Individual Poi Stories

My son Noah was born three months premature and was incubated and ventilator dependent for close to two years. Consequently, he has an oral aversion to feeding, gastroesophageal reflux, dysphagia, and generally does not like to eat (except when he is on systemic steroids).... We recently introduced Taro Dream® to his diet and since then, he has a new interest in eating. Noah has began to eat consistently and indicates when he wants to eat! We ran out of Taro Dream for 2-1/2 days and during that time he refused to eat anything. He began to eat again once we had more Taro Dream®.... I am a firm believer that Taro Dream® has stimulated his appetite and more importantly, his interest in eating. Noah will only eat pureed baby food, but combined with the Taro Dream® he will eat willingly and several times a day. I am grateful that Taro Dream® is an alternative; something that I can offer my son that has no added sugars, is nutritious and is real food.... Mahalo Taro Dream, for providing Noah with food that is yummy, digestible, and appealing to him!

Professional Testimonials

As medical professionals, we fully appreciate the need for such a wholesome, nutritional product for health promotion and illness management. Nutrition is one of the most important, yet least understood areas of health care. I fully recognize the need for a nutritional product which patients can easily tolerate.  Some of the most common symptoms experienced by cancer patients include nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, fatigue, and weight loss (all of which contribute to malnutrition and subsequently have a negative impact on the immune system and well being). Taro Dream® has the potential to significantly impact these symptoms and improve QOL in cancer patients. The fact that Taro Dream® is highly digestible, low in allergens, high in phytonutrients, makes it ideal for the cancer population, as well as patients with numerous other health conditions.
