I use whole almonds instead of plant protein concentrates/isolates in my vegan protein powders. Unlike protein concentrates/isolates, which have been stripped of everything but the protein, almonds are a great source of healthy fats and fiber in addition to protein. They are also prebiotic, meaning they improve the diversity and composition of the gut microbiome. Country of origin: United States.
My blueberry hydration powder is made with real blueberries. Blueberries are a natural source of nutrients, and a gut-friendly alternative to the fake flavors used in other hydration powders. Country of origin: Canada.
Egg whites have a tendency to foam when hydrated and mixed. In order to solve this problem, I add coconut to my recipes. Coconut meat is full of medium chain triglycerides (MCTS), which interfere with the formation of foam. Country of origin: Vietnam.
Egg whites are low in fiber, low-FODMAP, alkaline (help balance pH levels in your gut), bioactive (promote the growth of good gut bacteria) and naturally 80% highly digestible protein (when dried). Unless you have a sensitivity or allergy to eggs, egg whites will not upset your stomach. They are the perfect source of gut-friendly protein for people with sensitive stomachs and gut issues like IBS. Country of origin: United States.
Maple sugar is my favorite sweetener. It is one of the most natural forms of sugar, and loaded with antioxidants that can reduce inflammation. Country of origin: United States.
Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. It becomes a sweetener by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is dried into a powder. Monk fruit is a great option for people who cannot tolerate added sugars. Country of origin: China.
I use gluten-free oats in my meal replacement powders as they are a great source of complex carbohydrates. If you cannot eat oats, try my protein powders instead. Country of origin: United States.
Sea salt is one of the key ingredients in my hydration powders. It is a great source of sodium and chloride, the most important electrolytes when it comes to hydration. Country of origin: United States.
My strawberry hydration powder is made with real strawberries. Strawberries are a natural source of nutrients, and a gut-friendly alternative to the fake flavors used in other hydration powders. Country of origin: United States.
The little black specs in your vanilla protein powder are ground vanilla beans. If this is your first time seeing specs, it is probably because most companies use artificial or natural vanilla flavor, not real vanilla. Country of origin: Madagascar.
