About Rob

Rob Mastel, co-founder of Orac Beverages, went to Moorhead State University of Minnesota. He finds a lot of pride in knowing his customers are drinking the cascara teas and that it’s good for them! The highest point of his entrepreneurial journey was when it went from making the product for their friends and family to seeing it actually produced in a can and seeing the finished product!


About Orac Beverages

Orac Beverages was founded by Ryan Triepke and Rob Mastel and the company was formed on January 1, 2018. What a great way to start the year! Orac Beverages was brought about because they were tired of finding products that were loaded with chemicals and were doing more harm than good for the body. They wanted to create a beverage that didn’t have all of that! Orac Beverages is brewed out of cascara, a drink that has no chemicals, and only sweetened with honey. Rob expands, “Cascara is rated as having one of the highest values in antioxidants on the ORAC scale.  This is why we felt we wanted to name our company ORAC Beverages.” Cascara is antioxidant rich, energizing, contains natural electrolytes, and supports healthy brain function while supporting the immune system. Their tagline is “Drink Well. Live Well. Feel Well” and Rob says that that really embodies what their mission is as well.
