Love Chipa and Yerba Mate? Then Yerba Mate Chipa is for you


The much loved street food Chipa, has been combined with the national infusion of Argentina, Yerba Mate (a herbal tea type drink) to make a new product.

The new product concept was unveiled in the Capital city of Misiones, Posadas, last week. Misiones is the key producer of Yerba Mate within Argentina.

Chipa is a street food common throughout Argentina and is a cheesy dough type bread usually made into balls or straw shapes.

The aim of the new product is to have it placed in hotels, bars, restaurants and cafes around the country to encourage more use of Yerba Mate within food products.

The Association of the Ruta de la Yerba Mate is keen to promote the use of Yerba Mate not just as a key drink of Argentina but also as a valuable ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from croissants and cakes, to puddings and muffins, mousses and cheeses and even liquors.

Yerba Mate has many health benefits due to the fact that it has a higher number of antioxidants than Chinese Green tea.
