Almond protein powders are vegan, gut friendly, and delicious.
Why almond protein?
Our plant-based almond protein powder is perfect for vegans and people who cannot eat eggs. The primary source of protein is roasted California almonds. The nuts are harvested from the tree, hulled, and shelled. They are then sorted, pasteurized, roasted, and milled into a paste, which is pressed and milled into a fine powder.
We prefer almonds to other plant protein sources because they are easier to digest. Our customers have experienced fewer digestive issues with almond protein than with any other plant protein. This is in part because most vegan protein powders are made with plant protein isolates, plants stripped of everything but the protein. We will not go into the details, but protein isolates undergo heavy mechanical and chemical processing before becoming protein powder. Sometimes, manufacturers use chemical solvents like hexane to isolate (separate) the protein from the plant. This means that what you end up putting into your body looks nothing like real food. Our almond protein is not only more natural than protein isolates, but it also possesses prebiotic properties and can improve the diversity and composition of the gut microbiome.
In terms of taste, almond protein has a roasted almond flavor and smooth texture that far surpasses the chalky, gritty nature of most plant proteins. It can be mixed with cold milk or water, or added to smoothies and oatmeal for a delicious protein boost.
