We’re good health warriors at Naturally Good Food, so it’s entirely appropriate that we stock a range of products from a company called Sun Warrior. These are products designed to keep you fighting fit: they’re a selection of pure, raw, vegan protein powders, great for building muscle and promoting endurance. They provide an intense burst of pure protein, perfect for athletes and anyone who needs to boost their fitness levels – and ideal for vegans and vegetarians who might be struggling to obtain the right amount of protein in their diet.
These protein powders are part of Naturally Good Food’s Superfoods range. They’re designed to be mixed with water or some other liquid, such as almond milk or coconut milk, in a shake or smoothie. The ‘natural’ powders from Sun Warrior are pure sources of protein – you can add any other ingredients you like to flavour or sweeten. The chocolate and vanilla varieties contain various flavourings and natural sweeteners, and may be a more appealing choice if you’re new to protein shakes.
Our Sun Warrior range
We’ve got five products in our Sun Warrior range:
- Classic Protein Natural: raw, vegan, wholegrain rice protein
- Classic Protein Chocolate: raw, vegan, wholegrain rice protein with chocolate
- Warrior Blend Natural: a blend of several raw wholegrain protein powders
- Warrior Blend Chocolate: as above, with chocolate and other natural flavours
- Warrior Blend Vanilla: as above, with vanilla and cinnamon
The Classic Protein pack contains nothing but raw wholegrain rice protein, extracted in a low-temperature enzymatic process to include the germ, endosperm and bran of the rice. It’s 100% plant-based and great for vegans – it’s also free from gluten and genetically modified ingredients (GMOs). With a complete, balanced array of essential amino acids, this product is intended to help you burn fat, repair tissue and in short, build the body of a warrior!
In the chocolate Classic Protein variety, you’ll also find the following ingredients: organic cacao, natural vanilla flavour, chocolate extract, rice oligodextrin, stevia (a natural sweetener), xanthan gum, sea salt and pectin.
The Warrior blends of protein, meanwhile, are a mixture of rich, raw protein sources: organic pea protein, cranberry protein and organic hemp seed protein, along with medium-chain triglycerides from coconut. Together, these ingredients are much more than the sum of their parts: they come together to form a blend with a complete amino acid profile that’s exceptionally high in arginine, lysine, leucine and branched-chain amino acids.
Again, the chocolate variety of the Warrior blend contains additional ingredients to sweeten and flavour. You’ll find the same raw protein sources here, along with cacao, stevia, sea salt, natural fibres from fenugreek and konjac, and chocolate, vanilla, natural cherry, citrus and herbal tea leaf extracts. The vanilla variety, meanwhile, emphasises natural vanilla extract and also contains cinnamon.
Sun Warrior is a company founded by two friends who rejected the various commercial powders they saw all around them, deciding instead to create their own, wholly natural protein powders. Their mission has always been to illuminate ‘mind, body and planet’ with the very best plant-based powders and supplements. It’s fighting talk – but we’re with them all the way.
