Mamma Chia, Carlsbad, Calif., announced that its Chia Vitality Beverages and Chia Energy Beverages are now keto friendly, with just 6 grams of net carbohydrates in each serving. All Mamma Chia products are USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Verified, 100 percent vegan and free from lactose, soy and gluten.
Founded with the core mission of sharing the Magic of Chia through organic plant-based beverages and snacks, Mamma Chia has updated the lines of beverages to be keto-friendly and low in sugar to offer modern health seekers a refreshing grab-and-go beverage that provides a burst of vitality without sacrificing taste or health goals, the company says. Mamma Chia beverage labels will be clearly marked, indicating KETO-FRIENDLY and 6g Net Carbs.
"The keto lifestyle has opened a lot of eyes to the surprising amount of added sugars in many foods and drinks. From the very beginning when I was mixing up chia beverages in my own kitchen, we have made chia products with lower sugar than most beverages on the market. We know that our loyal fans prefer it this way and we wanted to challenge ourselves to bring our sugar content even lower to meet evolving needs without sacrificing taste," said Janie Hoffman, founder and chief executive officer of Mamma Chia. "With everything we do, we start with the well-being of our consumers in mind, and we also know anything we make must taste great. We are thrilled with how delicious and satisfying our keto-friendly formulas are with just the right touch of sweetness."
Mamma Chia Vitality Beverages will continue to be available across the United States at mainstream grocery stores and natural food markets in the same flavors: Blackberry Hibiscus, Blueberry Pomegranate, Raspberry Passion, Strawberry Lemonade and Cherry Lime. Mamma Chia Energy Beverages, which contain 90 mg natural caffeine from organic yerba mate, also will continue to be available in Blackberry Blast and Raspberry Razz.
