Mageu has been a huge product within the black community and it deserves a class of its own. 


What is mageu?


Mageu is a traditional South African drink that is made by fermenting mealie pap. It is non-alcoholic and is extremely popular especially among traditional groups. Wheat flour is added to the thin mealie pap, which creates the lactate-producing bacteria essential for the fermentation process.


It is gluten-free and non-acid forming. It strengthens bones, is antioxidant, slows down digestion and has a low glycemic index (which controls blood sugar levels), and it naturally relaxes body and mind. It is recommended for people with liver disorders, blood pressure, anxiety, depression, asthma and a weak heart.


It’s also a great breakfast, quick and easy, optimal for growth of children. Protein also builds and repairs tissues and helps to produce hormones, enzymes, and other bodily chemicals essential for optimal health.


Comes in great flavors, from original to strawberry and banana. Mageu is enriched with additional vitamins and minerals essential for optimum health. It contains Vitamins A, B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B6 (pyridoxine), B12 (cobalamin), C (ascorbic acid), D, E, and K.
