BCAAs

BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are essential amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine), which cannot be made by your body and must be eaten. BCAAs are metabolized in muscle tissue, rather than in your liver, so they can be used faster. BCAAs help to transition your body from a catabolic (breaking down muscle) to anabolic (building muscle) stage after exercise.1

Complete plant-based protein blend

Sprouted whole grain brown rice, pea, alfalfa, and SaviSeed protein combine to create 25 grams of complete protein with a balanced amino acid profile.

Glutamine

Glutamine is an amino acid which helps to repair and build muscle cells after exercise. It is also a component of digestive and immune system health.1

SaviSeed (sacha inchi) oil

SaviSeeds are the richest plant-based source of Omega-3s. It helps to proactively fight inflammation, while also balancing out the functional carbohydrates and sustaining your energy.

15 grams protein

Complete, multisource plant-based protein from whole grain brown rice and pea protein give your muscles the protein they need (and deserve).

2 grams glutamine

Glutamine is an amino acid that not only helps to rebuild muscle tissue, but also helps to support your immune system after periods of physical stress (like working out).[2]

Can I still use the Vega Sport Performance Protein if I am consuming the Vega Sport Protein Bar too?

Vega Sport Performance Protein and Vega Sport Protein Bar can be used in conjunction to support your post-workout recovery.

Is Vega Sport Protein Bar organic?

To certify all ingredients can be cost prohibitive to some of the smaller farms we work with, however we choose ingredients that are organic, non-GMO and pesticide-free where we can. As you’ll see when you check the ingredients list of Vega Sport Protein Bar, we’re using more organic ingredients than ever before.

I noticed Vega Sport Protein Bar contains whole food sweetener sources such as tapioca, brown rice and agave. Why did Vega choose these sweeteners?

During product reformulation, the goal was to choose sweeteners that were organic, gluten-free, vegan, minimally-refined, with a low-glycemic index. Vega Sport Protein Bar contains dates, organic tapioca syrup, organic whole grain brown rice syrup, agave syrup and cane syrup.

  • Dates (as a whole food source of sweetness and carbohydrate energy).
  • Organic tapioca syrup (a minimally- refined, grain-free sweetener made from the cassava root).
  • Organic whole grain brown rice syrup (minimally-refined).
  • Organic raw agave (minimally-refined, low-glycemic sweetener that contains trace minerals unlike refined white sugar or refined agave).
  • Organic cane sugar (sometimes referred to as evaporated cane sugar. The crystallized remains of sap extracted from sugar cane, this retains the nutrients naturally found in cane sugar, and is less refined than white sugar).
