Why buy our chocolate protein powders?
Our chocolate protein powders are made for sensitive stomachs. If you suffer from candidiasis, Crohn’s, diverticulitis, gastritis, gastroparesis, GERD, leaky gut, IBS, IBD, SIBO, ulcerative colitis, or any other digestive disease, please give our chocolate protein powders a try.
Our chocolate protein powders are also made for people who want to boost their protein intake without extra processing and added junk. We use a short list of simple ingredients, so you can eat more protein without worrying about what you are putting into your body.
Why do we make the best tasting chocolate protein powders?
Other chocolate protein powders are made from protein concentrates and/or isolates, which have a chalky aftertaste because they are stripped of everything but the protein. Our chocolate protein powders, on the contrary, are made from whole food protein sources.
The first ingredient in our chocolate protein powder is egg whites from Iowa, USA. The first ingredient in our vegan chocolate protein powder is almonds from California, USA. Both egg whites and almonds taste far better than any protein concentrate or isolate you have ever had.
Plus, unlike other companies, we use real foods to flavor and sweeten our protein powders. Our chocolate protein powder, for example, is made with egg whites, coconut, maple sugar, and cocoa. There are no artificial flavors or sweeteners to be found.
Egg white protein vs almond protein?
Some people will tell you that plant proteins like almonds are inferior to animal proteins like egg whites because they are less bioavailable. While the latter is true, this does not mean you should stop eating almonds. Bioavailability is a measurement of how well your body can absorb and use a nutrient. It is measured on a scale of 0 to 100%, and egg white protein scores 100%. Almond protein scores only 50%, but this just means you have to eat more almonds in order to get the nutritional benefits of egg whites.
Lots of people also point out that while animal proteins like egg whites are complete proteins, plant proteins like almonds are not, making them inferior. A complete protein is a protein that contains all amino acids the body needs, but cannot produce on its own. Although it is true that not all dietary proteins are complete, if you eat a balanced diet, this is nothing to worry about. Eating a variety of proteins will give you all of the amino acids that you need.
For those of you who are still skeptical, you should know that research shows plant proteins like almonds support muscle mass and body composition improvements just as well as animal proteins like egg whites. This means that either of our chocolate protein powders can help you reach your fitness goals.
It is worth noting that our chocolate egg white protein powder is a better option for people with extremely sensitive stomachs. Our customers have experienced fewer digestive issues with egg white protein than with any other type of protein. That said, our vegan almond chocolate protein powder is also very easy to digest, and contains prebiotic fiber that can improve the composition of your gut microbiome.
One final note – our chocolate protein powders are made with Ecuadorian cocoa, which can trigger heartburn for some people. If you have GERD or acid reflux, we recommend choosing another flavor.
How to use our chocolate protein powders?
Our chocolate protein powders can be mixed with 1-2 cups of cold milk or water to make a chocolate protein shake. They can also be added to smoothies, oatmeal, and recipes for an easy protein boost. Check out our high protein recipes for more ideas. If you do choose to make a chocolate protein shake, use a blender or shaker bottle. Unlike other companies, we do not use food additives to help our chocolate protein powders dissolve.
When to use our chocolate protein powders?
The best time to add our chocolate protein powders to your diet is in the morning. Eating lots of protein breakfast will keep you full until lunch, discourage overeating, and reduce snacking later in the day. Higher protein intake at breakfast is also associated with higher total daily protein intake. In other words, a high protein breakfast, despite its satiating effects, allows you to maximize the amount of protein that you consume over the course of the day.
