We only use ingredients grown without the use of plant protection products in our vegan protein powders. This protein blend consists of protein- and nutrient-rich seeds (with their naturally occurring dietary fibres) with the addition of select amino acids. This combination results in a natural and completely plant-based protein complex containing eight essential amino acids (isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine), with an expanded range to include important amino acids and peptides for those following a vegan diet: taurine, lysine, glycine, carnitine and creatine.
Our Veganlife protein powder is made from a hand-picked, finely balanced blend of brown rice (80% protein), mung beans (80% protein), peas (80% protein), hemp seeds (50 and 65% protein), pumpkin seeds (60% protein), sunflower seeds (50% protein) and brown linseed flour (30% protein). This vegetable protein complex with a total of 56% protein content is complemented by naturally fibre-rich guar bean fibres and konjac glucomannan. The pure and pleasantly creamy blend of the selected plant protein powders is rounded off by the salt concentrate Concentrace® from the Great Utah Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake in Utah is unique in that it has no outlets and is considered an inland sea. The water it contains is therefore particularly rich in minerals and trace elements that have been deposited there over thousands of years. The natural mineral concentrate Concentrace® is extracted from the mineral-rich, purified water of the Utah Salt Lake by a special evaporation process. Concentrace® therefore contains 72 exclusively naturally occurring ionic minerals and trace elements from the Great Salt Lake and is 99% sodium-free.
This complex fills potential gaps in the essential amino acid profile which can result from a purely plant-based diet, as well as gaps in some important amino acid-like compounds such as taurine, carnitine and carnosine. Despite partial endogenous production of carnitine from the amino acids L-lysine and L-methionine and of creatine from the amino acids glycine and methionine, deficiencies can quickly occur due to their rare occurrence in plant-based foods.
Without exception, our amino acids are obtained via fermentation or ultra-pure organic synthesis (such as in the case of Creapure®), without the use of animal products such as gelatine, hair or feathers. Moreover, due to the production of these natural amino acids from renewable raw materials, we are not contributing to environmental pollution—the synthetic production of amino acids is heavily criticised by environmental organisations because the process tends to contaminate surrounding bodies of water.
The L-lysine and carnosine contained in this powder are from an environmentally friendly fermentation of non-GMO corn. We also use ultra-pure, pharmaceutical grade taurine and glycine, L-carnitine in the form of bioactive L-carnitine tartrate and creatine monohydrate from Creapure® in Germany.
