We asked her a few questions about an industry that’s bursting at the seams.

Your vegan range of protein shakes is creating a wave. Are they as effective as traditional protein shakes?

Yes, most definitely. Vegan protein sources are often slammed for being incomplete or lacking in amino acids, particularly the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs); leucine, isoleucine and valine, known for their roles in building and maintaining lean muscle mass. If you blend complementing proteins together you can achieve a comparable and effective amino acid profile like we have done with our Vegan85, which is a blend of organic brown rice protein and pea protein isolate with a complete amino acid profile.

What other products are popular within the vegan market?

Our health food range is very popular within the vegan community, especially our Matcha green tea and our Greens blend that includes spirulina and chlorella. Also, many of our amino acids are vegan-friendly so they’re becoming more popular with vegan athletes. Particularly True Glutamine, which has gut-health benefits as well as enhancing sports performance, and True BCAA 4:1:1 for muscle protein synthesis. Both aminos are extracted through a process of vegetable-based fermentation, unlike many other companies that extract aminos from animal origins.

How does True Protein differentiate themselves in the busy supplement marketplace?

The supplement space is definitely saturated with bad-tasting sports supplements. They’re too frequently full of artificial additives and false promises. True has set a new industry standard by providing only products that are 100% natural: no fillers, no artificial flavours, sweeteners or colours, and they taste great!

As an Accredited Sports Dietitian, transparency and evidence-based science is extremely important in the food industry. True sources the best quality ingredients and develops products that have genuine health and performance benefits. No gimmicks or ‘bro-science’, just premium products and blends for real results.

Tell us about your latest releases?

True Superfood is our latest release and a favourite of mine. It is a vegan blend of three plant-based proteins: pea protein isolate, organic brown rice protein and the new pumpkin seed protein. This combination ensures a complete protein source of both essential and non-essential amino acids, including BCAAs, to provide over 21g of protein per serve. In addition to the plant-based proteins, True Superfood contains more than nine other whole food ingredients including nuts, seeds, vegetables, fruit and whole grain extracts to provide a nutritionally-dense formulation of essential vitamins, minerals, protein, fibre, good fats, antioxidants and phytonutrients (beneficial plant chemicals).

True Superfood is a versatile staple in any pantry, vegan or not. It is an all-encompassing protein blend perfect as a light meal replacement, an on-the-go snack or to be used in a delicious smoothie or bliss ball recipe.
