FAQ

Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about Nutriex products. If you have a question and don’t see the answer here, please feel free to Contact Us.

What is different about the new Nutriex plant-based Proteins powder?

The new Proteins takes its’ plant-based formulation to the next level. While we’ve maintained the advantages of a plant-based protein powder (more below), we’ve subtly improved the taste without adding sugars, sweeteners, or flavors. Though the types and quantities of protein remain the same (containing all the essential amino acids, including BCAAs for maintenance of muscle), we tasted samples from many different suppliers to find those with the best flavor, both on their own and in combination with the other ingredients. We added potassium chloride to increase potassium, an important electrolyte, as well as to improve the flavor without adding sodium. To aid those who have concerns about soy, we switched a sunflower-based lecithin. We also added a touch of pure vanilla to reduce any lingering flavor of protein. And, finally, we’ve packaged the new Proteins in a more convenient size to better maintain freshness.

Advantages of plant-based proteins include:

  • Higher fiber compared to animal-based proteins
  • Increased levels of beneficial nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • Reduced likelihood of digestive issues
  • Environmental benefits of reduced utilization of land and water resources and fewer waste byproducts

Why isn't there whey in Nutriex Proteins?

While whey protein is one of the most popular sources of protein, we’ve seen a shift in philosophies about whether it is still one of the best protein sources. With regards to whey and dairy in general, we’re hearing more and more health advocates discourage its’ use. Many people also have allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances to dairy, so by removing the whey protein, we are able to offer a product that these people can consume. And, finally, we do believe in improving the sustainability of our planet and know that switching away from whey to plant-based protein sources is a step towards a better environment.

Keep in mind that many of the benefits of whey protein can be achieved with a blend of plant-based proteins. By combining multiple protein sources, we are able to strengthen the “weak areas” of whey as well as the other individual proteins to improve the overall protein/amino acid profile. The new Nutriex Proteins provides an excellent balance of amino acids and significant quantities of BCAAs for maintenance of muscle. In addition, it provides substantially higher levels of the amino acids that promote energy availability for exercise.

In addition, several research studies have shown that both rice and pea protein provide similar gains in strength and muscle mass (or size) when compared to whey protein. Pumpkin protein is new enough that no research has been published on its’ use as a supplement, but we have no reason to believe that it would be any less effective.

Can Nutriex Proteins be used for weight reduction?

Those who are striving to lose weight can include Nutriex Proteins as part of their diet. Focus on generous servings of vegetables and fruits, moderate quantities of high-quality protein (whether animal or plant-based), and whole grains rather than refined (white) flour, rice, etc. Daily exercise, stress management, and adequate sleep are important components of any weight loss program.

How long does a bag of Nutriex Proteins last?

A bag of Nutriex Proteins contains thirty 1-scoop servings (or fifteen 2-scoop servings) and costs $31.95 per bag.

Amino Acids

Excellent Amino Acids Profile

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Because the body cannot make some of them (identified with a * below), they are deemed “essential” and must be obtained from food. Though plant-based protein can be extremely low in some essential amino acids, we have carefully combined several sources of plant proteins to optimize the delivery of essential amino acids.
