Picky Profiles: Dr. Andrew Abraham

September 23, 2016

Here at Orgain, we take pride in how picky we are. After all, it’s this very pickiness that dictates the high standard we hold our products to, for the sake of your health and ours. True, we are picky with our protein powder, just like we are picky with our ingredients … but in what other strange ways are we picky? There’s no better way to kick off our Orgain Picky Profiles than with our CEO and Founder, Dr. Andrew Abraham.


How do you contribute to Orgain’s pickiness and high standards as a company and with their protein powders and products?

I carefully source all of our ingredients, so I have be extremely picky as we want our products to be the absolute best in every way. Our suppliers have told me that I’m getting pickier and pickier every year, which I take as a compliment.

Why is Orgain’s Protein Powder better than other brands?

Plant based protein powders typically taste horrible and have the consistency of sand. We worked really hard to make our powder delicious with a smooth texture so its actually enjoyable, which is unheard of in the world of plant based powders.

How do you use your Orgain Protein Powder?

I use Orgain Protein Powder in breakfast smoothie every morning and mix it with 12 ounces of Orgain Almond Milk, Orgain 50 Superfoods Powder, half a cup of frozen blueberries, and half a frozen banana.

Tell us your strangest, funniest or most embarrassing picky moments in life.

I’m embarrassingly picky with my nightly teeth cleaning regimen. I start by flossing, then use a motor powered Waterpik, then brush my teeth for two minutes using a Sonicare, then use a natural peppermint mouthwash, and last but not least, the tongue scraper. Crazy but despite all that I still got my first cavity last year, so I’m going to kick it up a notch this year.

    Why do your orgain grass fed protein drink have 240 mg of salt? That is very unhealthy for many of us

      Hi there Robert & thanks for your comment. In general, the sodium in our shakes is balanced by the amount of potassium, but we do understand that everyone is different! If you’d like more info or advice on how Orgain might suit your specific needs, please feel free to email us at info@drinkorgain.com. Thanks again.

    Hi I love your products. One thing you may try in your teeth cleaning routine is baking soda. It is a base and attacks the acids in the mouth. Use is like a mouth wash. My mother said her father used it to brush his teeth with it and had no cavities and I used to wonder about that and then I read an article about it recently on natural products for tooth care and they explained this. You have beautiful teeth. I do have on request. I am trying your meal replacement 2.0 lbs. The container is huge and it is very hard to hold as my hands are smaller and have been injured. There is more than enough room for the power in there. Can you make the container for that thinner and smaller? I am sure there are others who would appreciate it also. Thanks for listening. Keep up your good works. So glad you survived cancer.
