Popularity surrounding matcha is increasing with every passing day – and it makes sense. The drink is a must-have for influencers and wellness gurus alike. It’s rich in nutrients and antioxidants; plus, it doesn’t hurt that matcha lattes are really pretty to look at. Ask yourself: how many matcha photos have you double-tapped on Instagram today?
If you’re wondering what the difference is between matcha and green tea, the answer is simple. Matcha and green tea derive from the same tea leaves; but matcha bushes are kept in the shade in an effort to increase chlorophyll and amino acid levels, thereby increasing the health benefits it provides to drinkers. Matcha is finely ground into powder, while green tea isn’t. The former makes it easier for users to mix it into beverages and desserts.
Luckily, Vital Proteins users get to enjoy the health benefits of matcha with our Matcha Collagen, a powerhouse combination of Japanese-sourced matcha and our hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. Plus, the newest addition: our Matcha Collagen Latte, which combines Japanese-sourced matcha, our hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides and coconut milk powder.
Our Matcha Collagen offers users 10g of collagen per serving. Antioxidants aside, matcha also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that provides an “alert calm” rather than a jolt and eventual crash, which can be the case with other morning beverages. Hello, new pick-me-up!
This green beverage also contains our Collagen Peptides, which are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide in Brazil, and help to promote healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.
And now for its latest iteration! Combining our jitter-less Matcha Collagen and our fan-favorite Collagen Creamers (the coolest collagen BFFs around), the latest member of the Vital Proteins family will quickly become your go-to if an easy-to-make, natural pick-me-up is what you’re after. Unlike our Matcha Collagen, our Matcha Collagen Latte (available in Matcha and Matcha Vanilla flavors) is one powder that only requires three steps to achieve the comforting taste and creamy texture of a matcha latte: pouring the powder into a mug, adding hot water and stirring – that’s it!
