ADD FLAVOR, FIBER, AND NUTRITION TO YOUR FOOD AND DRINKS
Maya is a wild harvested rainforest food that grows on one of the largest trees in the lowland jungles of Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean islands of Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti and Trinidad. The Maya tree’s roots reach deep into the fertile soils of the forest to produce one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Maya is naturally caffeine and gluten free, vegan and one of the most “paleo” foods currently available. The Mayan culture sustained itself on Maya seeds and achieved remarkable artistic and cultural milestones which remain the benchmark for early cultures worldwide. Maya can be used in a wide variety of sweet and savory food and drinks, and its high fiber and nutrient content help keep you healthy and happy. 100% of proceeds from the sale of Maya Superfoods products goes to support our programs providing training, jobs and income for women, Maya school snacks for children in Central America and reforestation with Maya trees in deforested regions throughout Central and South America and Haiti.
COMMUNITY IS EVERYTHING
ALL PROCEEDS OF MAYA SALES SUPPORT THE MAYA NUT INSTITUTE
Since we started work in 2001, more than 600 rural and indigenous women have formed 25 different autonomous businesses to produce and market Maya Nut products and to teach workshops to other women.
Women are the primary beneficiaries of our programs. We work with women because they are a critical link between the family and the environment, and because they are responsible for the health of the family. We have found that healthy families are better able to care for the environment because they can make sound decisions based on logic rather than desperate decisions based on immediate need for food, medicine or school materials.
