Frequently Asked Questions
What form does the protein come in and how do I use it?
The superfood plant protein powder blends well in liquid or can be used in baking. We recommend blending, shaking or mixing 8 oz of water or up to 12 oz of milk (any kind) to make a tasty protein shake.
What’s the best time of day to take the Protein?
For everyday use, nutritional shakes can be taken at anytime. For athletes looking to build muscle and aid in recovery, we recommend taking the protein shake during or just after a workout.
How should I store the product?
The product is shelf stable even after being opened. Store in a cool, dry place away from moisture, sunlight and fluctuations in temperature.
What’s the serving size?
The serving size is 28 grams or two scoops.
How many servings does this contain?
There are 20 servings (560 grams) per bottle.
Does the powder mix well in a blender bottle?
Yes, the powder blends easily in shaker and blender bottles.
What’s the texture of the protein powder?
The organic protein is smooth and has minimal grit compared to other plant-based proteins.
Does the protein have a strong flavor?
Our in house chef designed the protein to have a slight vanilla chai flavor that is enjoyable on its own but doesn’t overpower a smoothie if it’s blended with other ingredients. Mixed with milk, the flavor is similar to a vanilla chai latte.
How many grams of protein should I get per day?
The Institute of Medicine recommends adults get a daily minimum of 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight (or 0.36 grams per pound). This equates to 45 grams for a 125 pound person, 54 grams for a 150 pound person, 63 grams for a 175 pound person and 72 grams for a 200 pound person. More protein intake is suggested for people that are more active.
This product contains oat and barley grass. Is it gluten free?

Are there digestive enzymes in the product?

Is this a completely vegan protein powder?
Yes, every ingredient in the protein powder is from organic, plant-based foods.
Does this product come without stevia?
The protein currently contains stevia but our in-house chef has used a blend of organic monk fruit and organic stevia to create a balanced sweetness that isn't overpowering.
Where are the ingredients sourced from?
We source ingredients from North America and Europe whenever possible and only use the highest quality plant-based food that has been certified USDA Organic. Many of the ingredients are native to South America or Asia and are best grown there. Others are seasonal and better quality ingredients can be found in other parts of the world depending on the time of year.
