Yes. withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen is 100% safe. Both the coconuts used for our coconut milk powder and withinUs Grade A matcha are certified organic and are grown without the use of fertilizers, nitrogen or chemicals, and are routinely tested for purity.

Absolutely not. The Organic Matcha in Matcha Misto + Collagen is stringently tested for contaminants, including radiation. In order for our product to hold the JAS/JONA, Canadian Organic and USDA certificates samples must pass all tests. No traces of radiation have been found. Our 100% ultra-pure collagen (premium select grade TruMarine™ Collagen) is sourced from exclusive sustainable, wild fish found in the deep, pristine waters of the South Pacific Ocean - north of Australia and approximately 5,000 km from the coast of Japan.
The ocean currents of the Southern Hemisphere are separated by the Equatorial Counter Current and are completely different from those of the North Pacific.
The Kuroshio Current of Japan flows north towards North America (not south) and therefore does not impact our product.
withinUs organic Grade A matcha is from two of Japan’s oldest and most highly acclaimed tencha growing regions - Kagoshima and Kyoto where matcha originated over 800 years ago.
We created withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen as a ready-to-mix beverage. Simply add 1-2 scoops to one cup of hot water and stir.
When preparing withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen, the water should be just under boiling. A good way to achieve this is to boil water, then let it sit for 1-2 minutes before pouring. If the water is too hot, it will scorch the matcha and leave a slightly bitter flavour.
Our Matcha Misto + Collagen has been made with carrageenan free organic coconut milk.
Yes, Matcha Misto + Collagen contains withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen. Each scoop of Matcha Misto + Collagen contains 2.4 grams of collagen, about half the daily recommended serving.

One cup of withinUs Matcha Misto + Collagen contains approximately 1/4 the amount of caffeine when compared to a cup of coffee. withinUs Grade A matcha's caffeine effect lasts longer due to the amino acid, L-Theanine (no insulin spikes, no jitters). L-Theanine has a calming, relaxing effect and slows the release of tea-caffeine.
The caffeine in Matcha Misto + Collagen and the caffeine in coffee have been shown to have a very different effect on the body. Because the caffeine in matcha is combined with phytonutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids, it is released slower into the body. This means a more pleasant energy boost and an increase in focus lasting up to 6 hours with no jitters, as opposed to an immediate and short-lived “caffeine rush”. The caffeine time-release effect inhibits the sudden release of insulin meaning no crashes, and does not stimulate the release of cortisol (stress hormone) as coffee does. The nutrients accompanying the caffeine in matcha also means that it is gentler on your stomach than the caffeine in coffee.
Matcha Misto + Collagen is best if kept out of heat, air, moisture and light. Once opened, it is recommended to consume within 60 days.
Not at all. In fact combining withinUs TruMarine™ Collagen and withinUs Grade A matcha is a fantastic way to get your recommended daily intake of antioxidants and collagen for skin, hair, nail, and joint health.
