With the demand for natural health products booming thanks to increased awareness around health, consumers are becoming increasingly bolder and more adventurous in their choices.

Some of Australia’s most innovative and unusual food products will be on show at leading trade expo, the 2022 Naturally Good Expo on from June 6-7 at Sydney’s ICC

“Whilst a lot of niche products may not be in your local supermarket, they are readily available online from websites,” says Naturally Good Product Manager Sinead Kavanagh. “It’s just a matter of reading up and placing an order. This has become more and more the norm – customers are really relishing when they find a special product that they really like.”

Here is a selection of the quirkiest products at Naturally Good this year, which not only have a range of health benefits – they’re also great talking points!

Blue and purple tea
Tea Tonic’s Blue Magic tea is the prettiest tea you’ll ever see. Made with rose petals, the addition of Butterfly Pea makes the tea a naturally vivid blue. Once more, when you add lemon it then changes to purple! Sure to bring the wow factor to your next tea party.

Plastic free chewing gum

Did you know that most chewing gum is actually plastic and is laced with all sorts of artificial ingredients? No wonder you’re not supposed to swallow it. Eww! Honest Gum which comes in flavours of Eucalyptus, Fruit, Cinnamon and Ginger Lemon, is made from natural chicle, a sustainably harvested natural sap from the Mexican sapodilla tree which sounds a lot nicer.

Aphrodisiac hot chocolate           

Can hot chocolate get you in the mood? Apparently so. The Ocean Kissed by Locako Aprodisiac Hot Chocolate says it will ramp up your sexual desire with a nourishing blend of organic raw cacao, maca powder, and sexual tonic – cordyceps – a fungus that lives on certain caterpillars in the high mountain regions of China – and oyster extract!


Coffee fruit snack bars

You might be appalled to know that once coffee beans are harvested, the fruit surrounding them is often thrown away. I Am Grounded have used discarded coffee fruit – which typically is not eaten – and made it into nutrient rich, tasty snack bars

Chickpea butter

With so many adults and kids allergic to nuts, The V Good Company has brought out an alternative to peanut and hazelnut spreads. Their PeaNOT range is all chickpea – which is actually a friendly legume.

Black water

Yes, this water is actually pitch black and definitely has the cool factor. 3i Black Water consists of two ingredients – distilled rainwater from Melbourne a unique fulvic trace mineral complex, derived from ancient sea beds for a health kick.

Lavender latte

Eating anything lavender, might remind you of grandma’s soap – however the Lavendar Latte mix from Joneis, which contains actual lavender, is refreshingly palate pleasing. Also contains ashwaganda which is good for stress.


Lactation tea
If you’re a new mum and there’s nothing much going on in the mammary area, drinking this herbal Lactation Tea from The Breast Feeding Co. can help. Contains four lactogenic ingredients to support breastmilk supply.

Breast feeding biscuits

Why not top of your morning lactation tea with a lactation biscuit. The ingredients in the Lactation Biscuits from Franjos are packed with galactagogues, which have been used for centuries to promote a healthy breast feeding milk supply.

Camel Milk

It may sound a bit odd consuming anything from a camel, however the fresh camel milk from The Camel Milk Co. is actually the closest thing to human milk. This makes it super easy to digest and nutritious as it contains a huge host of vitamins.

  • I’ll have the Ocean Kissed Hot Chocolate please. :)


  • I’ve seen the tea, it’s so pretty to watch it change colour!


  • How interesting! Ive never known that chewing gum was plastic.


  • Camel milk? I’m intrigued a little though lol


  • Wondering if the black water tastes nice, would be quite weird to drink it!
    The blue tea sounds amazing same as the products for breastfeeding. Haven’t tried lactation biscuits before, but heard good things about them. Would love to visit the expo!


  • Well, some of these certainly are different!


  • I would love to try these products!


  • I’m definitely keen to try the coffee fruit snack bars!


  • Sounds great ! I’m very pleased more options and variety of natural health products are aavailable


  • A lot of these sound good but I’m not too sure about the camel milk,, I’d give it a go possibly but I have my reservations about it.


  • These all sound very interesting. I will have to have a look into them.


  • Why are things like this held during the week?! Monday and Tuesday??? People like me have work. Would have loved to have gone looking at some of the things they have on the list but they’ve missed out on my business and those who are also in the same boat and work during the week.


  • Some of those sound great, but there’s one or two I’d need more convincing about – not sure they really have benefits.


  • It’s sounds all very interesting. I would love to go to the Expo in Sydney.
