All-Natural Protein Powder
Consuming enough protein on a daily basis is incredibly difficult, especially for those who are following a plant-based diet. However, if you’re looking to maximize health, performance, and recovery, then it’s important to prioritize your protein intake.
One way to ensure that you stay on top of your daily protein goal is to have a high-quality protein powder on hand. Unfortunately, the majority of vegan protein powders that exist contain low-quality protein sources, artificial sweeteners/flavors, fillers, and even heavy metals. Not to mention, vegan protein powders tend to lack flavor, have a gritty/chalky texture, and mix poorly.
Since we couldn’t find a vegan protein powder that lived up to our standards, we decided to create our own!
Vegan Protein is K-Pow Nutrition’s premium all-natural vegan protein powder that contains 20 grams of complete protein from a combination of pea and rice protein. It’s important to note that most plants are classified as incomplete protein sources, meaning that they lack a sufficient amount of one or more essential amino acids.
So it’s crucial to use at least two or more plant protein sources that complement each other. In other words, what one protein source lacks in, the other one makes up for it, and vice versa. It turns out that pea and rice protein are the two highest-quality plant protein sources and they complement each other perfectly, which is why they are used in K-Pow Vegan Protein.
What else makes K-Pow Vegan Protein different?
K-Pow Vegan Protein is one of the only vegan protein powders with DigeSEB, a patented digestive enzyme blend, from Specialty Probiotics & Enzymes. DigeSEB is a unique combination of amylase, lactase, protease, lipase, and cellulase. These enzymes significantly improve digestion and absorption of every nutrient in K-Pow Vegan Protein, so you get more out of every serving.
Other key features of K-Pow Vegan Protein:
- Naturally-flavored & naturally sweetened
- Low-carb & Low-Fat
- Amazing taste & consistency
- Made in the USA
K-Pow Vegan Protein is an all-natural protein powder that’s mutually beneficial for those following various restricted diets. Whether you follow a vegan lifestyle, gluten-free, or keto-friendly, K-Pow Vegan Protein can help support your intense workouts.
Mix 1 scoop of K-Pow Vegan Protein with 8-10 ounces of cold water, milk or your favorite beverage. For best results, on training days, consume at least 1 serving within 20 minutes after your workout.
Peanut Butter Banana
There’s nothing quite like the combination of peanut butter and banana. It’s sweet, salty, and downright delicious. If you used to enjoy the classic peanut butter and banana sandwich, then you’re going to love this flavor. Peanut Butter Banana K-Pow Vegan Protein is perfect for smoothies, shakes, and baking!
Strawberry K-Pow Vegan Protein is liking drinking a refreshing strawberry milkshake, without excessive sugar, fat, or carbohydrates. Since the majority of strawberry-flavored protein powders are extremely artificial, we stuck to natural flavors and sweeteners to deliver a true natural strawberry flavor.
Pea protein is a high-quality protein source that’s hypoallergenic and naturally rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and essential amino acids (EAAs). Pea protein is particularly high in leucine, isoleucine, and valine, which are crucial for maximizing muscle protein synthesis.
Moreover, pea protein contains a good amount of arginine, a precursor to nitric oxide that promotes blood flow. Pea protein is also rich in iron, an essential mineral that’s needed for several bodily functions, most notably, hemoglobin production. Pea protein blends well with liquid and doesn’t have a gritty texture like other plant protein sources.
Since pea protein is relatively low in the essential amino acid methionine, we use rice protein to make up for it. Similar to pea protein, rice protein is a high-quality protein source that’s hypoallergenic, easily digestible, and fast-absorbing. Even though rice protein is not a complete protein source, it’s rich in essential amino acids, which are required for optimal muscle growth, recovery, and repair. Therefore, combining rice protein with pea protein results in a well-balanced amino acid profile.
DigeSEB™ is a proven and effective enzyme blend developed by Specialty Enzyme & Probiotics. DigeSEB™ is included in K-Pow Vegan Protein to enhance the digestion and absorption of the entire formula. Digestive enzymes are essential for digestive health and supplementing with them can reduce the risk of gastrointestinal issues, such as gas, bloating, and heartburn.
Here’s an overview of the substrates that each enzyme helps break down:
- Amylases - breaks down starches (complex carbohydrates)
- Lactase - breaks down lactose (milk sugars)
- Proteases - breaks down protein
- Lipase - breaks down lipids (fats)
- Cellulase - breaks down cellulose (a polysaccharide in plants)
The following ingredients are used in small amounts to improve either the flavor, texture, mixability, or consistency of K-Pow Vegan Protein.
- Natural flavors
- Gum blend (acacia, guar gum, & xanthan gum) - a thickening agent
- Stevia leaf extract - natural sweetener
- Monk fruit extract - natural sweetener
- Sunflower lecithin - improves mixability and consistency
- Sodium chloride - salt
- Peanut flour - adds flavor (only included in peanut butter banana K-Pow Vegan Protein)
Keep in mind that this list may vary slightly depending on the flavor.
