Protein is one of three primary macronutrients that provide energy to human body, along with fats and carbohydrates. They are comprised of a number of amino acids that are essential to proper body function and serve as building blocks of body issue.
There are 20 different amino acids in total. While some of these can be made in the body, there are 9 essential amino acids that people can only obtain from dietary sources. Foods that provide all of the essential amino acids are called complete protein sources and can include animal as well as some plant-based sources.
A diet rich in high-quality clean protein supports good health, muscle recovery and growth. All proteins are not created equal however, and if you are vegan, vegetarian, or simply cutting back on animal products in your diet it can be challenging to get the quality protein you need. Which is where a daily protein smoothie makes a ton of sense. In less time than it takes to make a bowl of cereal you can blend up a great tasting protein smoothie that will keep you energized and satisfied for hours – while also helping your body build and repair lean muscle tissue in your body.
Q: Is this the same product as Niyama's Organic Plant Protein?
A: Yes! Same great product with a fresh new look! We changed the name to Clean Plant Protein because while it is made from 100% certified organic pea protein, it also contains vitamins and minerals, which are not certified organic. To call out "organic" on the front of the pack, the product MUST be 95% organic by weight, and our plant protein comes in at 93%. So close! But it is the same delicious plant protein we are known for.
Q: What is the protein source?
A: Niyama’s Plant Protein is sourced from 100% organic pea protein.
Q: Did you consider using a blend of plant proteins?
A: Yes, we looked at blending several sources with organic pea including brown rice, hemp, and coconut. Brown rice can sometimes have traces of heavy metals so we ruled that one out early on. We love the nutritional profile delivered by hemp and coconut (additional good fats and fibre) but really wanted to make Niyama’s plant protein taste really good, not just “good for plant protein”. Our organic pea protein source delivered a super clean nutrient profile and a mild, pleasing taste with great mouth feel.
Q: Why is it so smooth and not chalky?
A: Our pea protein isolate is milled into an exceptionally fine powder – to the consistency of baking flour or icing sugar. When you open the container, you can see just how fluffy it is. So, it mixes beautifully without any gritty texture.
Q: Will it cause stomach issues? I sometimes get gas/bloating from pea protein.
A: To date we are thrilled to say that we have had zero reports of any gas, bloating, or stomach upset after taking Niyama’s plant protein. Even with people who have experienced issues with other pea-based proteins in the past. We don’t have science to support this, but there is a theory that many of the digestive issues associated with pea protein are usually with non-organic sources. Yellow split peas are a heavily sprayed crop when grown conventionally, and we don’t know the levels of glyphosate (chemical pesticide) that remain in non-organic pea proteins, but they do tend to be hard on the digestive system and not easily tolerated. However, if you have an allergy to pea protein we obviously do not recommend you try Niyama’s plant protein.
Q: What is the sweetener?
A: Our plant protein is stevia-free and is sweetened only with monk fruit, in both vanilla and chocolate flavour.
