VEGAN PROTEIN

Kat Hoyle Updated by Kat Hoyle

Our Vegan Protein blend was the second protein powder to our range, we wanted to offer a pure protein that keeps things simple that would lend itself to more versatile usage like baking etc.

Vegan protein is a blend of cold pressed hemp, bio fermented pea and pumpkin protein. This blend provides a balanced amino acid profile whilst being easy on the digestive system and with subtle nutty flavour hints under the different flavour profile.

Vegan protein comes in 3 flavours: Vanilla, Dark Chocolate and Cocoa Coconut. The Madagascan vanilla used gives the vanilla flavour a creamy, ice cream like flavour whilst the dark chocolate is rich and indulgent. Our newest flavour cocoa coconut uses the same cocoa powder with added coconut flavour! We also offer vegan protein in an unsweetened, unflavoured version. This is for those who prefer not to use stevia and like to flavour their shakes to their own preference! The unflavoured version is not completely tasteless, it has the natural earthy taste of the protein blend. The unflavoured version is also great to use in savoury dishes like pasta sauces or soups, bumping up the protein content of your dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the main difference between Vegan Protein and Perform?

The key difference between Perform and Vegan Protein is that Perform is a sport performance orientated protein powder, whereas Vegan Protein is a far simpler blend of pea, hemp and pumpkin protein with a few added ingredients for flavour. Perform has a meticulously balanced macro/micro nutrient profile with a superfood complex designed to maximise performance and recovery from sport and exercise, whilst Vegan Protein is aimed more at those wishing to boost their daily protein intake, but who may not have such a focus on sport performance.

  • Can I use Vegan Protein in savoury foods?

Yes! The unflavoured version of Vegan Protein works perfectly for savoury dishes. Try stirring it into a pasta sauce or blending into a soup for a higher-protein meal.

  • Is Vegan Protein suitable for children?

Vegan Protein is made of natural whole foods, but the product is designed with adults nutrient needs in mind. We recommend consulting with a doctor or pediatric nutritionist for advise of suitability or dosage for children.

  • Can I use Vegan Protein when baking?

Yes! Vegan Protein works perfectly in bars, cookies, muffins, pancakes and more. Use it whenever you want to bump up the protein content of your favourite treat!

  • Does the unflavoured version taste like anything?

Yes, the unflavoured version has the natural earthy taste of the protein sources. This will be masked as soon as you add the powder to your favourite sweet of savoury recipes.
