PROTEIN, PURPOSE, PROCESS

FuelGood Protein is a delicious new drink rich in protein. It comes in 4 tasty flavors that make great snacks and mini-meals with only 140-150 calories per 8 oz bottle depending on the flavor.

Protein is a macronutrient that builds and supports bones, muscle, skin and other vital body parts and organs. In fact, protein gives your muscles much-needed nutrient support, helping to maintain already normal blood sugar, and reducing your appetite. Protein is also more satiating than either carbohydrates or fats, and has even been linked to a speeding up of the metabolism (uh, yes please!). FuelGood Protein is here for your mind, body and soul!

The scientific formula is 0.8g/kg of body weight (hint: divide your weight in lbs by 2.2), but 40-50 grams is a good benchmark for most people. In real person terms, that’s about 12-15 grams per meal. Of course, always consult a medical professional, dietician or whatever specialist your mother made you call about your own personal profile.

A few FuelGood Protein drinks throughout the day (15 grams each) isn’t a bad way to make sure you get enough protein - FuelGood Protein contains as much as 3 egg whites, 1 cup of Greek yogurt, a medium piece of salmon or a heaping cup of almonds! It can be hard to get that much protein when you are on the go, at meetings or working out — so drink up for that protein boost with FuelGood Protein.

*Everyone*! We say more protein for all. Of course every person is different and has distinct dietary requirements- so be sure to read our label and consult a professional if needed. FuelGood has a lot of good natural ingredients and no added sugar. Some of our flavors have caffeine for that extra fuel throughout the day (including espresso and matcha). Our protein is vegetarian whey protein (lactose free, gluten-free, and non-gmo...certificates forthcoming). We also have vegan options (sunflower and brown rice proteins).

For those who are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, protein is an important macronutrient in your diet. And in the long term, for women (and men) “of a certain age,” a drink rich in protein can be a welcome addition to your diet.

Protein is the new black for women and men of all ages, shapes and sizes!

We were very deliberate in designing the look and feel of our bottle so that it instantaneously makes you feel good. The logo is evocative of an "energy stone." Stones and semi-precious gems have been used for centuries for their purported beneficial qualities, including healing and protection, for warding off negative energy and creating positivity. For example, malachite, with its rings of light and dark green, is said to protect travelers–and what could be more perfect than traveling through life's journeys with FuelGood Protein by your side? We really are serious about our goal of helping you fuel your mind, body and soul.

Well… the suits don’t let us say we’re healthy, but we think our drinks are pretty great from a nutrition standpoint. A balanced diet and an active lifestyle (a dash of good genes) and will have you looking like a ballerina or yogi or spin instructor in no time if that’s your goal.

We pack 15 grams of protein into our drink, with 150 calories or less per bottle. We do this without compromising other nutritional levels. Our drinks contain less than 5 grams of sugar, less than 5 grams of carbs and contain 8 ingredients or less, plus they contain natural ingredients that you look for.

No! Our drinks are way different from those made to “bulk you up.” We use fewer ingredients and less processing than most other protein drinks- and, for women, more protein does not lead to additional bulkiness (thank your low testosterone levels). We are in the business of providing wholesome mini meals or snacks, chockfull of protein and other ingredients that can help rev your metabolism and build lean muscle (along with smart diet and exercise choices).

We have a reliable stable of taste-testers and everyone agrees- all the flavors are heavenly! FuelGood Protein is responsible indulgence because it tastes similar to melted milkshakes or that chocolate milk you had in your lunchbox of yore, but without all that yucky stuff. This is a grown and sexy adult snack for men and women. Trust us.

Why yes we can, thanks for asking, because this is a very important component of fueling good (pun intended). You know all the salmon you eat? The avocado or nut butter on spelt toast? Just like protein, fat is a macronutrient. Besides needing it to survive, it can help you feel full longer and absorb key vitamins. However not all fats and saturated fats are created equal- that's why we selectively chose ingredients like organic cashew paste and organic Dutch cacao that when eaten in moderation can be useful additions to your diets (did we mention both of these are packed with antioxidants?) At FuelGood Protein, we are about responsible indulgence, that's why each bottle is only 150 calories or less (not a low-calorie food) with 5 grams of fat or less and 2 grams of saturated fat or less. With us you can look and feel good.

At the end of the day, ingredients matter. We try our very best to use ingredients you know and love, just spiked with protein love. Knowing what you are putting into your body, can empower you to make better choices about where your calories are coming from. For millions of years humans have eaten ingredients that occur naturally in our environment. Why should we deviate now from our wise ancestors?

At FuelGood Protein, we have looked for quality ingredients with names that you can pronounce. Anything here you have a question about is a quick online search away. You will find that FuelGood Protein is made with premium ingredients instead of stuff not found in nature in any form (that fake stuff that can leave you feeling bloated, jittery and more hungry). For example, one way we create a smooth drink is to add locust bean gum- from the seeds of a carob tree. And depending on the flavor profile you will find organic vanilla extract, organic raw cacao, or organic matcha. The main source of FuelGood Proteins' sweetness is organic agave or organic stevia- both derived from plants! Commit to fueling with real ingredients.
