I don’t know about you, but I’ve tasted some rather unpleasant protein drinks in my day. From gritty textures to bland tastes, some drinks just aren’t up to par with the average person’s palate, let alone someone like myself who tastes a bunch of products each week from new companies and who tastes several recipes a day in my own studio. Not only is taste an issue, but some of the ingredients in protein drinks are simply unpronounceable, unrecognizable, and downright unnecessary.
Luckily, there are companies out there – like OWYN – that don’t want consumers to have to “power through” their protein drinks and that care about the ingredients used.
OWYN (an acronym for Only What You Need) makes ready-to-drink protein shakes in 3 delicious flavors – Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, and Cold Brew Coffee. They are 100% plant-based, made with pea, pumpkin, and flax – covering all essential amino acids just like a traditional whey protein would do – minus the dairy! Not only are they plant-based and dairy-free, but also free of the top 8 allergens and gluten-free. They contain 20 grams of protein, only 4 grams of sugar (organic cane sugar and no sugar alcohols), and are free of synthetic ingredients and fillers. They also contain organic greens like kale, spinach, and broccoli, for an added boost of nutrients.
In my opinion, there is no longer a need to “power through” your protein shakes when there are options like OWYN available on the market. And for those who prefer protein powder to ready-made shakes, OWYN also has a line of powders that include probiotics and trace minerals.
