Proteins are macronutrients that are essential for the human body. They are one of the building blocks of body tissue and can also serve as a fuel source. They are needed for building muscle mass. Protein is found throughout the body - in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and virtually every other body part or tissue. It makes up the enzymes that power many chemical reactions and the haemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood. Protein supports the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
The protein in this powder comes from peas, brown rice, and soya. Vegan protein powder is a great alternative to common sources of protein such as meat and dairy, particularly for those who have food intolerances or a restricted diet.
Iron plays an important role in our physiological functions. Its most important role is to contribute to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, which aids oxygen transportation in the body. It also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and supports the normal function of the immune system. Approximately 3-4g of Iron is stored in our bodies. The mineral is available in two sources: haem and non-haem. Roughly 90% of the UK's dietary Iron is acquired by a non-haem source. These come from pulses and legumes such as beans, peas and lentils, as well as dark green leafy vegetables, tofu, nuts and seeds.
Vitamin B12 helps some very important processes within the body. It contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells, as well as supporting the function of the immune system and reducing tiredness and fatigue. It is found naturally in a wide variety of animal foods and is added to some fortified foods. Plant foods have no vitamin B12 unless they are fortified. The best sources of vitamin B12 are beef liver and clams, but fish, meat, poultry, eggs, milk, and other dairy products also contain a good amount of vitamin B12.
Cocoa powder is the component of cocoa beans after the cocoa butter (the fatty component) has been removed. Cocoa powder contains 20% protein and is surprisingly rich in nutrients. Some of these nutrients include manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, and zinc. It also contains a substantial amount of caffeine, which can be surprising.
