MAMMA CHIA Organic Chia Energy Beverage–What’s it all about?
I originally discovered MAMMA Chia Organic Beverages tucked away in the cold drinks section of my local CO OP food store and have come to love the refreshing mix of flavors and the texture of a Chia beverage. When Mamma Chia reached out to me to try their new Organic Chia Energy Beverage I couldn’t wait to try them. I am typically very
hyperactive sensitive to caffeine so was pleased to see that this is a naturally caffeinated beverage and is instead a clean energy drink using Fair-Trade Guayusa as well as organic chia seeds. I have had other beverages with Guayusa and have liked the great energy without the need to peel me off of the ceiling after consumption.
Guayusa is a natural caffeine ingredient derived from the Amazonian Rainforest holly tree, the ilex guayusa. It is a great source of antioxidants and clean energy. Guayusa is often made into tea.
MAMMA CHIA was started in 2009 when founder Janie Hoffman discovered the true benefits of chia seeds. She incorporated chia into her diet and eventually created chia beverages for her friends which became the inspiration for her company Mamma Chia. Mamma Chia is an Organic company and also B corp Certified.
Ingredients in Mamma Chia Organic Chia Energy Beverage:
- 2500mg Omega-3s from Organic Chia Seeds (To find out more about Chia Seeds and their health benefits check out my informational post HERE)
- Guayusa–90mg natural caffeine from Organic Guayusa Tea leaves
- organic cane sugar,
- organic lemon juice
- organic juices
- citric acid, fruit and vegetable juice for color
Taste and energy
Mamma Chia Organic Chia Energy Beverages come in 4 different flavors–Blackberry Blast, Raspberry Razz, Grape Power, and Cherry Charge. Each flavor is distinct and refreshing. If you haven’t tried a Chia beverage before you may find the texture slightly surprising as the chia seeds are hydrated. I truly love the texture of these drinks and find them especially refreshing before or after a workout. My favorite flavor is the Cherry Charge. It has just the right amount of tart and sweet. The Guayusa gives me a nice energy boost without sending me over the edge. I love the clean flavors and clean energy in these drinks and also love the fact that they are organic!
