We’re very excited at Garden of Life about our new Guayaki Yerba Mate flavored Raw Protein and Raw Meal. Well known in the Natural Products Industry for their delicious brand and beverages, Guayaki became the first Fair Trade Certified yerba mate company in the world in 2009. Just like Garden of Life’s supplements, the Guayaki brand is also USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO verified.

When we heard that Guayaki was working to make organic, Fair Trade Yerba Mate the mainstream energy source of choice, we partnered with them to launch Raw Protein and Raw Meal ENERGY. Whether you’re already a fan of our best-selling Raw Meal or Raw Protein, we believe you’ll love this great tasting smoothie developed by our raw foods chef, Gwen Marzano. Try it once and you might want to make every morning a Yerba Mate Morning! Best of all, it’s quick and easy to make!

Is this in the raw mate "actually raw" meaning it is not roasted over a fire. Speaking to my dr. I was informed that it can be unbenificial to people who smoke or have as it could release carcinogens. I was wondering if it is in the raw if this form is safer for people who may be at risk for cancer?

Thank you,

Bought this product yesterday because I'm into losing some weight but also I need more energy. I thought this was the perfect combination. Just had my first shake this am with half a banana, some flax & chia seeds and cinnamon. Mixed it with part water/part coconut milk because I wasn't sure about the taste of Yerba mate. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste! It was even better that the vanilla flavor Raw Fit. Now to test the energy part, but so far it is delicious!
