NovoAndina Ypadu or Mambe Colombian Style is is based on a single coca variety. We use Yungas leaves to create a sweeter flavor in the final product. This product is bright green in color, it does not contain the dark ashes of the traditional Mambe and the Mambe extra Strength or Max. Coca Leaves have been slowly roasted and we do not ferment them for alkaloids extraction, they go to a extra dehydration process that can take 2-3 days and the final product gets milled in a super fine -smooth powder, light to the touch and almost velvety. It contains and ash-yarumo from the cecropia tree (Cecropia sciadophylla or Cecropia peltata) which gives a smooth lemony and sweet flavor and other potent ingredients that provide electrolytes to the mix to make it easier to absorb and enjoy. This Mambe contains 90% of pure coca leaves, 2% Yarumo and 8% of activators and alkaloid from the same coca which remain as trade secrets. No chemicals or artificial products used on any step of the preparation.
