Frequently Asked Questions

Rootana is an all-natural meal replacement shake that provides you with 24 vitamins and minerals, alongside protein, fibre, carbohydrates and healthy fats. Unlike most meal replacement shakes, Rootana avoids the use of artificial sweeteners, stevia, and sucralose. Instead, Rootana includes natural coconut sugar to sweeten its taste.

Rootana has two flavours available: original and cacao. Both have a slightly sweet oat taste. The cacao flavour has a subtle cacao flavour. There is no overly-sweet aftertaste in Rootana shakes as they avoid the use of artificial sweeteners. The sweetness is provided by natural coconut sugars.

Grab your Rootana shaker and fill it with 500 ml of ice-cold water. Alternatively you can use a dairy or plant-based milk for a thicker shake. Add in 5 heaped tablespoons of Rootana powder (or if you have a Rootana metal scoop then add in 4 scoops). Tighten the lid and shake thoroughly for 10-20 seconds. Then you can either drink straight from the shaker, or pour into a glass.
