Nutri-Food MAX Vegan Protein
- Vegetable protein
- 17 grams of high-quality protein (per scoop)
Nutri-Food MAX is a sugar-free source of unadulterated vegetable protein sourced from non-GMO peas and rice, providing 17 grams of high-quality protein in every scoop. This flexible formula can be mixed with pure water or any beverage.
Adequate, good-quality protein helps the body sustain proper functioning. For instance, the amino acid supply (from dietary protein) is used to build functional proteins needed for healthy immune function and to produce the enzymes and hormones needed for metabolism, digestion, and other important processes like detoxification and bone remodeling.
“Clean” Protein Nutri-Food MAX is an excellent choice of supplementary protein for vegans and those who are sensitive to sugar (including lactose), sweeteners, or flavorings. It is also free of gluten. Nutri-Food MAX provides protein from pea and rice sources, avoiding major food allergens including milk, egg, soy, and wheat. The pea protein in Nutri-Food MAX is water extraction, keeping all the nutritional qualities intact.
Flexible Formulation Aside from providing clean, easily digestible vegetable protein, the advantage of Nutri-Food MAX is its flexibility. While other protein supplements provide high levels of various micronutrients, making it difficult to add protein to a patient’s nutritional protocol, Nutri-Food MAX is not enriched with extra micronutrients. Therefore, practitioners can design personalized protocols for their patients by directing them to add selected supplements to a Nutri-Food MAX shake or take encapsulated or tableted micronutrient supplements along with Nutri-Food MAX. Additionally, Nutri-Food MAX can easily be added to any functional food formula—if added protein is desired—without the concern of getting too much of any micronutrient. Because this formula is free of sugars and flavorings, it can be added to any approved beverage; or it can be mixed with pure water for a mild, earthy, pea soup taste.
Excellent Quality Proteins for dietetic foods must provide good basic nutritional quality, which, in this case, means a high protein level, a well-balanced amino acid profile, and good digestibility. At 98% digestibility, pea protein is considered highly digestible and matches that of beef, milk, and soy protein digestibility. The protein content of the pea protein features a well-balanced amino acid profile (listed on reverse side), including a high content of lysine, arginine, and branched-chain amino acids. Amino acid scoring provides a way to predict how efficiently protein will meet a person’s amino acid needs. Because pea protein alone is incomplete, combining it with rice protein makes Nutri-Food MAX a complete protein with an amino acid score of 100%.
Added Amino Acids L-Glutamine is an energy substrate for most cells—especially intestinal epithelial cells and immune cells. It is also an essential component for numerous metabolic functions. Glycine, an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter, is an important constituent of collagen and a building block for other substances such as coenzyme A, nucleic acids, creatine phosphate, purines, bile, and other amino acids. Taurine is a derivative of sulfur-containing cysteine with many healthful clinical applications, including the support of stable cell membranes, cardiovascular health, and glucose tolerance.
