Vanilla Plant-Based Protein

Our vanilla plant-based protein is carefully crafted using all-natural ingredients, with absolutely zero artificial flavors or sweeteners. Below you will find the description and reasoning for each ingredient included in our formula.  

    1. Pea Protein Isolate: Made by isolating the protein from ground yellow peas, resulting in a powder that strips away everything except for the protein and amino acids. Pea protein isolate is a great protein choice because it’s easily digestible, vegan-friendly and has an amino acid profile that is comparable to whey protein.
    2. L-leucine: An essential amino acid used in the biosynthesis of protein. Research suggests that leucine plays a major role in triggering the muscle protein synthesis pathway. Although pea protein has a similar overall amino acid profile as whey, its leucine content specifically is slightly lower. Knowing the key role leucine plays in muscle repair and recovery, we added in an additional gram in each serving.
    3. Organic Stevia Leaf Extract (Rebaudioside A): Stevia is a natural sweetener and sugar substitute that is derived from the leaves of the plant species Stevia rebaudiana. It is about 250-300 times sweeter than sugar itself, so we only needed to add a small amount to bring a little sweetness to the flavor profile.
    4. Salt: Salt is a necessary ingredient for two reasons. First, it will help replenish any that was lost during exercise through sweat. Secondly, salt helps enhance and balance the overall flavor profile by bringing out the natural vanilla flavor and sweetness from the stevia.
    5. Silicon Dioxide: A natural anti-caking agent to avoid clumping in the protein powder. Can be naturally found in leafy green vegetables, beets, bell peppers and brown rice.
    6. Natural vanilla flavor (Natural Flavors): Simply that, a natural vanilla flavoring. Carefully added to provide a smooth and delicious taste that won't overpower the flavors of your favorite smoothies and shakes.
    7. Natural flavor blend (Natural Flavors): Leucine, one of the key ingredients in our plant-based protein, is known for its extremely bitter taste. To ensure that our protein is both nutritious and delicious, we've added a natural flavor blend that works to balance out that bitterness. So you can enjoy a tasty protein shake without any unpleasant aftertaste.
    8. Natural flavor blend - (Natural Flavors): Pea protein has been known to be a little bitter. Similar to #7 above, this natural flavor blend is used balance out the overall flavor profile and make your protein shake/smoothie more enjoyable.
