Ayurveda is an ancient Indian practice used for thousands of years based on the belief that wellness depends on a delicate balance of mind, body, and spirit. It is one of the oldest holistic systems that promote the use of chai spices. These spices are traditionally used to inspire a perception of wellness & tranquillity through their aromatic scent.
Beetroot has been used historically for an array of natural alternatives from sweetening foods, due to the intense sweetness of the juice, through to dying fabrics with its vibrant red colour that comes from a group of naturally occurring pigment compounds called betacyanins.
Turmeric has over the past 4000 years of Ayurveda been traditionally consumed in warm Turmeric based beverages. These drinks are always prepared with black pepper which is said to be imperative to bringing the goodness out of the Turmeric. We’ve made sure that our Turmeric is not only the highest quality available but has also been carefully combined with black pepper in our Velvet Latte to deliver the wealth of Turmeric’s traditional benefits.

Are pregnancy and Breastfeeding safe?
All of our superfood latte’s are completely safe for consumption during pregnancy and lactation and for persons under the age of 15. This is due to our latte’s being made up solely of organic whole food ingredients.
Are they vegan?
Here at Nutra Organics, we decide not to call ALL of our super latte’s vegan due to the fact that the Mermaid Latte (the blue one) and the Golden Latte (the yellow one) contain Manuka Honey. Some vegans decide to eat honey but for the sake of keeping it above board for those who don’t we feel it’s better to play it safe. BUT luckily our Velvet latte (the pink one) is completely vegan with not an animal sourced ingredient insight so there is something for everyone.
Is Manuka Honey ethical?
Supporting other local and ethical businesses that support us is deeply ingrained in the Nutra Organics ethos. That said we have specially sourced our Manuka Honey from a supplier that gathers it from many different busy bee hives up and down the Australian eastern seaboard. This makes sure that our bees are never overworked and are free to roam wherever they shall please. This keeps them very happy and also means that they are able to keep producing amazing manuka honey that makes all of us very happy too.
What do our Superfood Latte’s taste like?
All of our Superfood Latte’s are traditional Ayurvedic chai based and will have hints of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. Our velvet latte has a natural sweetness that comes from the beetroot whilst the mermaid is a full-bodied chai with clove and star anise added to enhance the spice profile. The golden latte definitely has a warm earthy flavour profile with turmeric being what brings in the sunshine.
Why do the spices in my Superfood Latte float?
All of the ingredients included in the formulation of our Mermaid Latte (as with all of our products) come from whole foods that are simply dried and ground. This means that no instantiates, thickeners or extra sugars are added to enhance the solubility of the spices. As such our spices may float to the top of your latte but you can rest assured it’s because they are the real deal. If you really would like to stop this from happening we suggest frothing the milk as this tends to keep them held in suspension a bit longer.

What are adaptogenic herbs/what are they good for?
Adaptogenic herbs have been traditionally used across multiple modalities to promote general feelings of balance and increased vitality. Our herbs are simply the whole dried herbs that have been ground down into powder so you know you are getting all of the good stuff without worrying about consuming any form of extract or refined components.

What’s all the fuss about Turmeric Lattes?
Turmeric lattes are absolutely everywhere from your local cafe to supermarket shelves, you are sure to come across one in your travels. But what separates ours from the rest? Well, our turmeric has been standardised to contain 5% curcumin. Curcumin is what gives turmeric its bright orange colour and is what all health experts are going crazy for. We have made sure that our latte is made the traditional way with black pepper and coconut milk to ensure the deliverance of curcumins benefits. Naturally sweetened with ethically produced Manuka Honey you will be surprised by just how tantalising a turmeric latte can be.
