Get Picky With Your Protein!

September 12, 2016

At Orgain, being picky means we don’t compromise our high standards for nutrition, ingredient quality, OR taste.

Taste? We’ve got it covered.

Unlike other plant-based proteins that have a gritty, hard-to-choke-down texture, Orgain Organic Protein Powder is smooth and delicious. It turns your morning smoothie or post-workout protein drink from a dreaded chore to something you actually enjoy! And Orgain Organic Protein Powder tastes great added to many of your favorite recipes, so you can have pancakes, muffins, smoothies, and snack bars with a healthy protein boost.

Nutrition? Check.

Orgain Organic Protein has the nutritional profile we all want in a protein powder: including 21g of plant-based protein per serving, only 3g net carbs, no added sugar, and no soy. (For more information, click here.)

Ingredient quality? That, too.

But our pickiness doesn’t end there. Unlike the leading plant-based protein powders, Orgain is USDA Organic, so it’s made without the use of toxic pesticides, hormones or any artificial ingredients. Great taste doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality. We’re firm on that.

Here’s a breakdown of some of what’s inside our Organic Protein Powder and why:

Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein

  • Excellent source of amino acids (complete amino acid profile when combined with pea protein)
  • Sprouting increases nutrient absorption and decreases intestinal distress
  • Very high concentration of protein
  • Sprouted, USDA organic, non-GMO

Organic Hemp Protein

  • Complete the amino acid profile with important branch-chain amino acids
  • High in omega-3
  • High in fiber

Organic Pea Protein

  • Excellent amino acid profile high in BCAAs
  • High in lysine and arginine
  • Highly digestible protein source

Organic Chia Seed

  • High in omega-3
  • High in fiber

So, if you’re using a protein powder that isn’t smooth and delicious, doesn’t have the best nutrition and isn’t USDA Organic, it’s time to get picky with your protein. You won’t regret it.

    I use your orgain plant based protein powder everyday & love it! Especially the peanut one!My question is ,is this a complete meal? I couldn’t find an amino acid profile can you supply me with one?
    I usually have one each morning for breakfast & mix it with cashew or almond milk.

      Hi Lucia and thanks for your question! Here’s our Plant Based Protein Powder amino acid profile. Also, please keep in mind that these figures represent the amino acid profile for one serving. Orgain Organic Meal Powder is a complete meal with complex carbs, fruits and veggies, and organic protein, while our Protein Powder is more of a protein delivery system, with healthy fats and organic fiber. The Protein Powder is fantastic by itself, but also gives you the ability to control what else goes in, should you like to blend your own morning smoothies. Hope this helps but please feel free to email us at if you have other questions!

        I recommend putting this list of BCAAs on the label. Most other competitors do this and is one of the things I look for when comparison shopping.
