PRE-HISPANIC SWEETENER

Salviana is a fresh nutrient-rich sweet sap with naturally occurring prebiotic fiber and probiotics, and a varied sugar profile. It is  extracted and collected daily by indigenous families from wild and organic certified living Maguey plants.

We invite you to learn more…

The MAGUEY is an ancestral plant that lives in a semi-desert area, with little to no rain fall. It reaches maturity between 8-12 years old, and flourishes only once before ending its lifecycle.

It survives in this hostile environment by storing a nutritious sap in its wide and thorny leaves called “pencas”.

Since many different products could be obtained from it, including food, work tools and clothing, it was known as “the tree of wonders”.

How is the sap obtained?

The indigenous families obtain their livelihood through the sustainable and organic cultivation of the maguey.

Once the maguey reaches maturity, a bowl-shaped hole is made in the center before the stem begins to sprout.

After a few days, the sap that would have nourished a flower starts to accumulate, and it’s collected during the mornings and afternoons for approximately 3 months before ending its lifecycle.

The collected sap is taken to our facility following a strict quality control system and is kept raw by removing only excess water without changing its organoleptic properties. 

The final product is a fresh and bioactive sweetener with vital nutrients.

By consuming Salviana, you are improving your health and supporting indigenous families.
