Organic Plant Protein 450g salted caramel from 6 plant proteins | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Organic Plant Protein Salted Caramel combines six organic plant proteins (pea, sachai inchi, coix seed , hemp, quinoa and sunflower seeds) in salted caramel flavour, providing a complete amino acid profile, in an easy to mix powder with a smooth texture and great taste.
Organic Plant Protein is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. It is gluten-free, sugar-free, non-GMO and a good source of fiber.
Jarrow Formulas’ Organic Plant Protein combines organic plant proteins in a convenient fiber rich, gluten free, zero sugar powder suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and those seeking to substitute some of their animal protein intake with plant proteins. Organic pea
protein, often considered the most readily digestible among major plant protein sources, is combined with additional protein sources (quiona, sacha inchi, sunflower, hemp and coix seed) with differing amino acid profiles that vary in their rate of protein digestion and assimilation. Combining different protein sources can help to sustain serum amino acid levels over a longer period of time.
Peas are the seeds - inside the pods of Pisum sativum and have a high protein content. Technically, peas are legumes (members of the plant family Leguminosae) characterized by long pods and called pulses when used only for their dried seeds rather than as a green vegetable. During the Middle Ages in Europe, peas were a major source of protein. Pea protein has some properties similar to casein, a milk protein, and is an intermediate fast protein: The amino acid content in blood plasma increases quickly after ingestion. Pulses are typically poor sources of the essential amino acid methionine and hence are not sources of complete protein. They also contain noteworthy levels of amylose, a form of resistant starch that escapes human digestion but acts as food for the intestinal microflora.
Quinoa, though a grain crop is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal in that it is not a member of the grass family. It is closely related to species such as beetroot, spinach and tumbleweeds. It is related to and resembles amaranth, another pseudocereal. The nutrient composition is comparable to cereal grains. The seeds contain essential amino acids such as lysine and are high in protein
Sacha inchi (Plukenetia volubilis), also known as sacha peanut, mountain peanut or Inca-peanut, is native to much of tropical South America. The seeds exhibit high protein (27%) and oil (35 - 60%) content, the two being separated by processing for various purposes.
The oil consists primarily of the essential fatty acids omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (~45-53% of total fat content) and omega-6 linoleic acid (~34-39% of fat content) as well as non-essential omega-9 monoleic (~6-10% of fat content).
Sunflower seeds, either in the hulls or removed to yield the kernels only, are a common food and snack. The seeds are high in both oil and protein content. The concentrated protein is more readily bioavailable than whole sunflower seed meal. As is true of many plant sources of protein, sunflower seed protein is a poor source of the essential amino acid lysine. It is a marginal source of methionine
Plants of the Cannabis genus has a controversial aura because of the psychoactive properties of some of its members, but the nutritive value of hemp seeds is unequivocal. Possessing a full-spectrum of amino acids, hemp protein exists in an easily digestible, non-allergenic form. The hemp plant is also a source of essential fatty acids, with the omega-3/omega-6 ratio often coming in at 3:1.
Coix (Coix lacryma-jobi) belongs to the Gramineae (or Poaceae) plant family. Coix is used in traditional Chinese medicine as yi yi ren. In English, coix also is known as Job’s tears. The seeds are important in traditional Chinese medicine. Much richer in protein content than rice, the seeds are typically 15 - 18% protein. In at least one variety, the seed can reach 20% protein, the content being rich in proline and leucine and poor in lysine.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

What foods deserve the name 'superfoods' and why?Many different foods have been touted as superfoods over the past few decades and undoubtedly many more will come.
Why are we all so focussed on superfoods? Secretly, we all hope for the miracle natural 'drug' to cure or prevent heart diseases and other degenerative diseases, especially when it can compensate for other bad habits, such as smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not sleeping enough and moving too little.
In order to do away with the hype of it all, we at Pasio decided to get rid of the category of 'superfoods' and merge all edible products (fats, proteins and superfoods) into one major category called 'nutrition'.
While there is no official legal definition of superfoods, this doesn't mean there isn't a scientific basis for calling a food “super.”
According to nutritionists, a superfood is the type of fruit and veggies that packs a lot of micronutrients into each calorie and is linked with a reduced risk of chronic disease. Studies also suggest that people who eat more of them tend to be thinner and live longer than those who rarely or never eat them.
However, what type of micronutrients these are , is up for debate.
Veggie happiness!In the past week, we were enlightened with a blog article, telling us there is now final proof how people that eat more veggies, are happier. Isn't that awesome! Wow, how could this come about? We started wondering...could it be these folks, who outeat all others regarding veggies have all ducks in a row in which living a healthy lifestyle and eating healthily with lots of veggies is just the final 'duck' in the 'row'.
Why should I care about meal frequency?Why should I care about eating several times a day? A straight answer is, because it works!
It works if you wish to burn fat and maintain a good muscular attractive physique when you are over 40. Back in 2009 I was pretty darn fit and strong and in the best shape of my life while eating small meals five to six times a day and working out right after work around 7pm.
Urban gardeningIf someone told you a few years ago to enjoy gardening, there's a good chance this remark was met with a condescending smile as it was deemed to be a rather boring passtime.
Not so anymore as especially growing your own food has become quite popular and rightly so. There is something magical about seeing a seed grow out to a vegetable, fruit or herb you can actually eat.
A vegan life
Over the past decades, a vegetarian life-style has become much more common and accepted than say just 25 years ago, when it was difficult to eat a satisfying meal away from home.
With the advent of wider vegetarian options, more and more people jump straight from a non-vegetarian lifestyle into veganism.
Recipes with protein powder
Most of you will know how important protein is for building or maintaining lean body mass when dieting down or suffering from a chronic disease.
