Our Mission

We stay connected to our Latin roots by sourcing our ingredients from their native land: Peru. Our ingredients are organic, gluten free, non-GMO, vegan, traditionally grown, and processed through fair-trade practices supporting local Peruvian farmers and sustainable farming. Ethically sourcing makes our heart and body happy. Our tiny bubbles make a big impact!

From Mama Earth to Llama Mama, we want you to channel Peruvian superfood’s natural power while knowing that not only are we good for you, but we are good for all!

Meet the Founder

  • Zani, born to a Peruvian mother, was deeply influenced by her Latin roots throughout her childhood. Her knowledge of Peru’s incredible natural resources further shaped her understanding and appreciation of her heritage. Struggling with psoriasis led her to discover the importance of gut health and prebiotics, introducing her to yacon, a Peruvian superfood. Aware of the negative effects of sugar and recognizing that yacon is low on the glycemic index, she was inspired to use it as a natural sweetener. Coupled with her dislike for the aftertaste of diet sodas, Zani saw the perfect opportunity to create a healthier beverage option. Thus, Llama Mama was born!

We are driven by and for small communities.

Llama Mama sources from local farmers and we are committed to protecting biodiversity and native food knowledge of Peru.

Peru’s natural pantry is broad and deep, stocked by extreme ecological and cultural diversity. In fact, the country’s diverse geography includes 28 of the world’s 32 climate zones, which helps explain the abundance of superfoods. Not only that, but we also have the second largest Amazon forest on the planet-which combined with Brazil, makes up 70% of the planet’s total biodiversity. That’s no joke!
