The Product

With your first order, if you have chosen the envelopes you will find Bivo's single-portion packets and the Bivo shaker. When you need a quick, complete and healthy food, all you have to do is add 300 ml of water, pour the contents of a packet inside the shaker and shake: Bivo is served.
Before opening the bottle, it is important to shake it for a few seconds, so as to give air to the dust and make sure that it does not remain deposited in the bottom. Then the bottle is opened and about 300 ml of water is added, i.e. just beyond the top edge of the label. It is closed and stirred for a few seconds, so that the product dissolves homogeneously. That's it, Bivo Ready to Use is ready to drink, even directly from the bottle itself.
Bivo is supplied in a single portion just to be easily transported and prepared on the spot. To enjoy it at its best, prepare it and consume it immediately afterwards. In case of need, you can still prepare Bivo a few hours before consuming it, but to best enjoy it, it is advisable to prepare it just before consumption.
We recommend you prepare Bivo with water at room temperature to best enjoy the product. However, you can also use cold or lukewarm water. We advise you not to use boiling water so as not to burn the thermolabile vitamins present in the product.

One Bivo contains about a fifth of the daily requirement of the main vitamins and mineral salts.
