Mana is a collection of alternative foods produced by the European research and production startup Heaven Labs since 2014. In Europe, Mana products are synonymous with quick, healthy plant-based foods and are available both online and in over 1,500 supermarkets and outlets. The company entered the American market in December 2019 and has already sold a quarter of a million meals. The company expects its newest line of beverages and powders, launched in April 2021, to cement its position in the United States as a manufacturer of full-nutrition meal replacement products.

Manas drinks and powders provide ideal proportions of all proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber as well as vitamins and minerals that the body needs for life. Made from high-quality herbal ingredients that the company tests in state-certified laboratories, they’re made at the company’s headquarters using patented technology.

“We were the first manufacturer of whole food powders in the European Union, which is why we have had a stable customer base there for years. However, entering the U.S. market in 2019 was a big question mark.
Even so, Americans showed so much interest in our products that we sold a year worth of stocks in just over 6 months. In the past, only our best-selling Origin powder was available in the US. Now we feel honored to be able to offer our entire beverage and powder portfolio, ”says Mana founder and CEO Jakub Krejcik.

Latest Mark 6 Recipe: 42 essential micronutrients, balanced macronutrient ratio

All of the drinks and powders in Mana’s new line are made to the latest recipe, Mark 6, which provides 42 essential nutrients that your body cannot produce on its own. These are: 14 vitamins and 17 minerals, 9 essential amino acids and omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Mark 6 also contains high quality vegetable protein from 6 different sources: isolated soy protein, isolated pea protein, oat protein, hemp protein, rice protein, and algae protein. Together, these proteins provide all of the essential amino acids in balanced proportions.

The fat comes mainly from a mixture of 6 healthy vegetable oils: rapeseed oil, algae oil (rich in DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids), coconut oil, sunflower oil, flaxseed oil and oat oil as well as phospholipids from soy lecithin. This mixture contains important fat-soluble vitamins and valuable phytonutrients such as vitamin E, phytosterols and lutein.

The fiber in each serving of powder consists of hemp, peas, soy, seaweed, carrots, oat beta-glucans, inulin from chicory and acacia gum. The list is the same for the drink, only it contains cellulose instead of acacia gum.
