Organic Plant Protein 450g vanilla spice with 6 plant proteins | discontinued
Jarrow Formulas Organic Plant Protein Vanilla Spice combines six organic plant proteins (pea, sachai inchi, coix seed , hemp, quinoa and sunflower seeds) with the delicious flavour of vanilla spice, providing a complete amino acid profile, in an easy to mix powder with a smooth texture and great taste.
Organic Plant Protein is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. It is gluten-free, sugar-free, non-GMO and a good source of fiber.
Jarrow Formulas’ Organic Plant Protein combines organic plant proteins in a convenient fiber rich, gluten free, zero sugar powder suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and those seeking to substitute some of their animal protein intake with plant proteins. Organic pea
protein, often considered the most readily digestible among major plant protein sources, is combined with additional protein sources (quiona, sacha inchi, sunflower, hemp and coix seed) with differing amino acid profiles that vary in their rate of protein digestion and assimilation. Combining different protein sources can help to sustain serum amino acid levels over a longer period of time.
Peas are the seeds - inside the pods of Pisum sativum and have a high protein content. Technically, peas are legumes (members of the plant family Leguminosae) characterized by long pods and called pulses when used only for their dried seeds rather than as a green vegetable. During the Middle Ages in Europe, peas were a major source of protein. Pea protein has some properties similar to casein, a milk protein, and is an intermediate fast protein: The amino acid content in blood plasma increases quickly after ingestion. Pulses are typically poor sources of the essential amino acid methionine and hence are not sources of complete protein. They also contain noteworthy levels of amylose, a form of resistant starch that escapes human digestion but acts as food for the intestinal microflora.
Quinoa, though a grain crop is a pseudocereal rather than a true cereal in that it is not a member of the grass family. It is closely related to species such as beetroot, spinach and tumbleweeds. It is related to and resembles amaranth, another pseudocereal. The nutrient composition is comparable to cereal grains. The seeds contain essential amino acids such as lysine and are high in protein
Sacha inchi (Plukenetia volubilis), also known as sacha peanut, mountain peanut or Inca-peanut, is native to much of tropical South America. The seeds exhibit high protein (27%) and oil (35 - 60%) content, the two being separated by processing for various purposes.
The oil consists primarily of the essential fatty acids omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (~45-53% of total fat content) and omega-6 linoleic acid (~34-39% of fat content) as well as non-essential omega-9 monoleic (~6-10% of fat content).
Sunflower seeds, either in the hulls or removed to yield the kernels only, are a common food and snack. The seeds are high in both oil and protein content. The concentrated protein is more readily bioavailable than whole sunflower seed meal. As is true of many plant sources of protein, sunflower seed protein is a poor source of the essential amino acid lysine. It is a marginal source of methionine
Plants of the Cannabis genus has a controversial aura because of the psychoactive properties of some of its members, but the nutritive value of hemp seeds is unequivocal. Possessing a full-spectrum of amino acids, hemp protein exists in an easily digestible, non-allergenic form. The hemp plant is also a source of essential fatty acids, with the omega-3/omega-6 ratio often coming in at 3:1.
Coix (Coix lacryma-jobi) belongs to the Gramineae (or Poaceae) plant family. Coix is used in traditional Chinese medicine as yi yi ren. In English, coix also is known as Job’s tears. The seeds are important in traditional Chinese medicine. Much richer in protein content than rice, the seeds are typically 15 - 18% protein. In at least one variety, the seed can reach 20% protein, the content being rich in proline and leucine and poor in lysine.
How to prepare for a quarantine such as COVID-19
Like most of you, we have been following the news on the COVID-19 virus pandemic closely since early January.
With a rapid increase of both infections and people who have been in contact with infected persons, the amount of people who need to go into quarantine, rapidly increases too. Never mind how the entire population in Italy is forced to stay inside with more countries to follow soon.
With ever stricter rules in place, people suddenly realized they are not prepared for events like this, and started buying goods left and right without much of a plan.
Like most of you, I have also not given this much thought, so it stands to reason to go take a look in the USA where 'prepping' for disasters is popular, and rightly so because of the more dramatic weather conditions. Because people in North America generally live much further away from supermarkets and do not always have access to good tap water and electricity power may go off for longer periods of time,most advice given is superfluous for our society where power outages are rare and tap water reliable.
Hence that part of the advice was omitted in the article below.
What is quarantine?
The main rule of quarantine is: "nobody comes in and nobody goes out". If you are in quarantine, you are distancing yourself from people aside from the ones in quarantine with you, like your family or roommates. The reason for this is to stop the spread of an illness or possible illness.
Urban gardeningIf someone told you a few years ago to enjoy gardening, there's a good chance this remark was met with a condescending smile as it was deemed to be a rather boring passtime.
Not so anymore as especially growing your own food has become quite popular and rightly so. There is something magical about seeing a seed grow out to a vegetable, fruit or herb you can actually eat.
Mix 1 scoop (~31g) of powder with 250ml of water, juice or or your favorite beverage. For a protein smoothie, blend with water and ice, and add juice or fruit as desired.
