THE INGREDIENTS

So, what's in our Healthy Macro Snacks?

Our balanced healthy Macro Snacks are all made up of three main ingredients in addition to their individual flavorings:

Pea Protein Isolate  Chickpea Flour  Brown Rice Flour

But what is so special about these healthy ingredients?

All of these ingredients are plant-based, gluten-free, high in protein, and are all considered to be complex carbs. Protein and complex carbs are important for everyone and getting the right balance can be difficult. This is why these three ingredients make up 70% of all our products. 


Healthy Ingredient Make Up

You might be wondering, why is it so important that we eat healthy, plant-based, gluten-free, high protein, and complex carb food. So, let us tell you... 

Complex Carbs

Complex carbs provide you with slow-release energy, perfect in the run-up to workouts, sports events, or even daily life.

It is important to balance complex carbs so that you don’t make yourself too sluggish. Check out our blog post on why Macro Snacks have the perfect complex carb ratio for your post-workout snack.

Protein Packed Snacks

The all-important protein. Our Macro Snacks are packed full of protein. Perfect for everyday diets and even more perfect for exercising. Not only does it aid you in building muscle mass, but it also keeps you full for longer.

Our Macro Snacks are a healthy alternative to your favorite chips and snacks, plus they provide you with loads of protein and can keep you fuller for longer - a win-win, we think!!!

And guess what, all our products contain all the 9 essential amino acids which make up a complete protein! 

Plant-Based Snacks

All of the above ingredients are plant-based, meaning they come from natural sources and are full of awesome nutritional benefits.

This means that our snacks are perfect for many different dietary preferences.

(please note: our pizza pie flavor is plant-based, but not vegan due to seasoning)

Gluten-Free Snacks

These ingredients are a favorite amongst people following a gluten-free diet, or those who have celiac disease.

They are wonder ingredients, that allow you to recreate your favorite snacks without relying on gluten and wheat products. Once again, this means we are able to provide snacks that cater for most diets!

It is another great source of plant-based protein and also fiber. Combined, this can help you to lose unwanted body weight, build muscle, and help to lower blood sugar levels. Brown Rice Flour has a great nutty flavour which gives our snacks that extra punch of tastiness, as well as keeping them super healthy. 

Not only this, but Brown Rice Flour also has high levels of B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and manganese. It is also found to be rich in lignans - shown to help reduce risk of heart disease.
