With the launch of our vegan protein supplement on Friday, February 9th, we wanted to give our supporters and you the consumers a short overview of what to expect from our new product. Although we won’t touch on every ingredient, we do want to go over some ingredients that may not be well known in the industry and touch on what makes our vegan protein different from others. This is a special product coming out that we are very excited to release to the public. In order to bring the highest quality product to you, we have teamed up with Compound Solutions, “the go-to company representing and distributing unique, patented nutraceutical ingredients that improve the health and performance of individuals.” (taken from http://www.compoundsolutions.com/index.html#top).
Our new vegan protein contains 2 unique products from Compound Solutions— watermelon/pumpkin seed Smooth ProteinTM, and Clean CreamTM —both cutting edge ingredients that are used to make this extremely well rounded product. Smooth ProteinTM consists of watermelon seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. Smooth ProteinTM is also organic, non-GMO, non-allergenic, and gluten free. It gets its name from a special proprietary manufacturing process that Compound Solutions utilizes. All too often, vegan and all natural/plant based products come with a gritty texture and an earthy undertone. With this new protein, we wanted to add a vegan protein alternative to the market that had a smooth mouth feel and tasted great without using artificial sweeteners or excess added sugars. Without the use of artificial sweeteners and excess sugars, creating a good tasting easy to drink vegan supplement is not an easy task.
During sampling and production of this product we were blown away by the consistency and taste that this protein possessed. It almost resembled a normal whey protein shake in the sense that it still retained a rich creamy like taste without the dairy. The trademarked ingredient Clean Cream from Compound solutions is responsible for this effect. This ingredient in particular is vegan, non-GMO, low glycemic, contains no soy lecithin, no maltodextrin and no mono/diglycerides, and is sugar free. Clean CreamTM creates not only a rich taste, but also gives the product easy mixability without the sugars.
Along with the Clean CreamTM , we added monkfruit extract to our vegan protein to give it a naturally sweet taste. Monkfruit is a sweet fruit found in southeast Asia. The fruit extract is proven to be 150-200 times sweeter than sugar, while still staying calorie free. It has no effect on blood sugar and is rich in antioxidants. At the end of the day, the product you are consuming is plant based, and it is important to keep that in mind. It will not taste like a Starbucks carmel macchiato that contains 50 plus grams of sugar. Having said that, we are extremely happy with how our flavor profile and consistency turned out in our vegan protein, especially in comparison to other similar products on the market. With the help of Compound Solutions, we feel confident we nailed the taste, while also keeping true to the values and standards that a vegan product must uphold.
One serving of our vegan protein offers you 20 grams of protein for 110 calories. A tub contains 27 servings, the same as our whey proteins. Per serving, it contains 4g of carbs (2g net carbs), 20g of protein, and 2g of fat. We are excited to get this product into the hands of our consumers and supporters that cannot take whey protein, for whatever reason. Some people find themselves in situations where their stomachs simply have a difficult time digesting whey. Other people have made a decision in their lives to steer clear of animal products, and live a vegan lifestyle. As a brand who is in the business to provide ALL of our supporters with supplements to fuel the modern day athlete, we knew it was time for us to develop and alternative protein supplement that could be taken and enjoyed by everybody.
