Can I consume the Just Ingredients Vegan Protein if I am following a low-inflammatory diet?
Yes! There is now a strong body of evidence that plant-based protein sources result in a significantly lower level of inflammation than animal-based proteins. Since our vegan protein powder does not contain whey, you should be able to consume it as part of a low-inflammatory diet. Consult with your primary care physician or dietitian to see if this would be a good fit for your lifestyle.
Is the stevia in the Just Ingredients Protein Powder processed? What is your source?
No. Processed stevia goes through a 42 step process, and can cause gut issues for some. We use straight stevia leaf crushed up which is completely different. It is from a wholesale company that provides to manufactures only. All of our ingredients are sourced that way!
What is the shelf life of the Just Ingredients Protein Powder?
2 years but it also freezes well. There are no preservatives so it is best if it is stored in the house rather than a hot garage.
Is this protein powder a meal replacement?
It’s just a protein powder and not meant to be a meal replacement. Protein shakes lack the variety of vitamins and minerals required to make them a valuable food source. Protein shakes supplement the amino acid intake of a person.
How does the taste of the Vegan Chocolate Protein compare to the whey-based option?
The Vegan Chocolate Protein tastes a bit different from our whey-based protein for those who are familiar with it. It also has a slightly thicker texture but is nice and creamy, which can be hard to come by for a vegan protein powder.
What is the best time of the day to consume protein powder?
The protein is for anytime if you want a protein-packed snack! Many people drink protein before or after their workout, or right before going to sleep.
Who should use protein powder?
Protein powder is great for those that have a hard time getting enough protein in during a day. Protein, fat, and carbs are the 3 macronutrients our body needs. Some don’t get enough protein in each day and a protein powder supplement can help. Do you know how much protein you eat per day?
Is the product suitable for children or pregnant women?
We recommend consulting with a healthcare professional before introducing any new dietary supplements, including our Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder, during pregnancy or for children. Our protein is made from all real food ingredients and no ingredients should be a cause for concern.
What is MCT oil?
MCT oil, derived from coconut oil, consists of medium-chain triglycerides with 6-12 carbon atoms, offering a rapid and efficient energy source. It has potential benefits for weight management and cognitive function by promoting feelings of fullness and supporting brain health.
What is the purpose of the Tapioca Starch in the protein powder?
Tapioca starch is blended with pea protein and MCT oil, acting as a vital flow agent. This guarantees the seamless operation of our manufacturing machines, preventing clumping due to excess moisture and ensuring a consistently smooth texture for the protein powder.
How should I store the protein powder for optimal freshness?
Store the protein in a cool, dry place, and ensure the bag is tightly sealed to maintain freshness. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or excessive heat.
