Meta Mate "RAW" Organic 100g – the energising superfood
Grown and harvested by hand in the Brazilian rainforest the Meta Mate "RAW" is - as his name indicates - one of the purest yerba mates we offer. While most of the conventional Yerba Mates are air dried, this product is freeze dried and dehydrated at low temperatures in order to conserve the natural mineral and vitamin content. Furthermore, its level of magnesium and zinc is almost double the levels of conventional Yerba Mates. Thanks to its purity, this mate is very intense and highly vitalizing. Be open to try something new and try our unique Meta Mate "RAW" - you will not regret it!
This product is 100% vegan and was certified by "fairtrust" and DEMETER .
Fresh. Sweet. Pure. Clean. Floral and fruity. Pure Energy
Meta Mate Raw contains all the original nutrients of the living leaf. This Mate is not high in caffeine content. It does, however, contain lots of minerals like calcium, potassium and magnesium, which can have a stimulating effect.
It is a raw dehydrated product which you can rehydrate if you let it sit in a cup of water for a few minutes. You can consume as an infusion, blend it into smoothies, or use it in other recipes.There is almost NO bitterness or bite to this Mate.
Meta Mate Raw’s unique processing method sets it apart in taste from all other Mates. It comes from the forests of the Santa Catarina region. Here, the Mate trees grow in a spacious ‘agroflorestal’ environment under the shade of other native trees. Only healthy leaves between 6 months and 1 year old are plucked from the Mate trees.Upon arrival at the production facilities, the leaves are examined in sterile surroundings for minor signs of contamination. At this stage about 5% of the leaves are sorted out. The Mate is then rinsed with energised water. After removing excess water through centrifugation, the Mate is shock frozen and then dried slowly in an environment below 45°C.

Smoothies – Soak 1-2 Tbs of Raw Mate in Water or Juice for 5 mins and then blend it together with other ingredients in a smoothie or juice of your choice. We recommend stronger flavours like orange, ginger, apple to counterbalance the taste.
Topping: Next time you cook a rice dish, soup, or even bake a pizza, boost this dish with 1-2 Tablespoons of Raw Mate. Simply sprinkle it on top 10 minutes before serving to add a little kick to your meal.
