Organic Matcha Powder
Ceres Organics believe in the power of ‘real’ wholefood ingredients. So this bag of powdered goodness is made from the whole leaves of organically grown matcha plants, from the lush rolling fields of the Uji region of Kyoto, Japan. Nothing else added. Matcha is favoured by Buddhist monks as natural fuel for the mind, body and soul. With just a third of the caffeine of coffee, balanced by its unique nutrient composition, matcha powder has a special focusing effect. And what makes it super valuable is you consume the whole leaf and all its magic, so one serve can offer the benefits of up to 10 cups of regular green tea! Add 1/2 a teaspoon of this concentrated superfood to just about anything—smoothies, juices, desserts, or enjoy as a nourishing tea.
Ceres consider both the bulk ingredient allergen declaration and the potential risk of allergen contamination introduced at the packing/manufacturing facility when labelling their products. If the product carries no warning, this means that there is no advised gluten risk for the ingredients and no gluten contamination risk is present during manufacture or re-packing.
However, Ceres do not test for gluten allergens unless a gluten free certified or blue cross grain claim is made on the packaging. If you're coeliac and need 100% assurance, check out the Ceres products in our Gluten Free Certified value.
