Mamma Chia Organic Beverages Review and Giveaway!!!
There are many different beverages to choose from, but not many have the nutritional and transparency benefits that Mamma Chia possesses. Chia Seeds seem to becoming more and more common and more known for their many health benefits, so when the chance to try one of these variants of Chia came my way I was all in!
The first thing that can be potentially off-putting about Mamma Chia is the price. It can range anywhere from $3.49 all the way up to $5.00 for a 10 ounce bottle depending on local sales or any coupons available at the time of purchase. I was able to locate Mamma Chia in my refrigerator section of my local chain grocery store, as well as at the national health food store. I plan to purchase the other flavors that I was unable to try as part of this review because the drinks tasted that good!
Mamma Chia Vitality beverages use the highest quality of organic chia seeds, as well as organic juices and organic agave nectar that acts as a sweetener. The drink products are vegan and have no animal derived ingredients. I was surprised to learn that this 10oz of suspended chia seeds can be used a replacement for every meal or snack time. They are drinkable in the morning instead of a caffeine filled coffee, consume one hour before your workout for more stamina, and after for recovery and replenishment. They are a Certified B Corporation which means that they meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. As if that was not enough, they donate 1% of their gross sales to support farmers, community groups and organizations that are building healthy local food systems.
The first thing that a person notices when they pick up the bottle is the Chia suspended in the liquid! I tried the Cranberry Lemonade and the Blackberry Hibiscus Vitality drinks. The Cranberry Lemonade is made from organic lemonade and a touch of cranberry, The Blackberry Hibiscus is made from the Hawaiian Hibiscus flower and blackberries. Each drink has 2500mg Omega-3, 4g of Complete Protein, 95mg calcium, kosher and 95% organic.
The texture is similar to small tapioca balls, and they go down the throat with ease (more like a slide down the throat). The Cranberry Lemonade was an equal balance of cranberry and lemonade, not to sour at all! The Blackberry Hibiscus has the perfect balance of Blackberry with Hibiscus. I would not only recommend these 2 flavors I tried, but also the other varieties that they make as I can not imagine a bad tasting product from them!
If you have ever wanted to try a product with Chia seeds I would try this first entry in the emerging Chia Beverage market!
