Sunwarrior Warrior Blend is an unparalleled blend of three core essential vegan protein sources. Made from yellow split peas, hemp seeds, goji berries, and coconut, Warrior Blend is a unique and superior protein over competing vegan choices. Different than vegan protein blends made with brown rice, quinoa, or other grains, warrior blend is light and easy on your stomach. It is easily digested and comes in five delicious flavors: natural, chocolate, vanilla, berry, and mocha.
Better than Hemp Alone!
Hemp protein has been touted as the best vegan protein source there is. Dr. Axe has even posted that hemp is “The Perfect Plant-Based Protein.” Hemp is high in the fatty acids Omega 3 and Omega 6, and also includes all of the essential amino acids needed for muscle growth and recovery. It is also pretty high in fiber, meaning it will leave you feeling more full than alternative sources of protein containing less of the nutrient. Hemp is generally easy to digest, but not necessarily easy to get down. Hemp is one of the protein sources that tends to settle down in your glass if not properly blended.
Let’s compare the nutrition of about 25 grams of hemp protein to the same portion of Sunwarrior Warrior Blend.
Calories: Same/Same. Hemp and Warrior Blend have both have 100 calories per 25 gram serving.
Carbohydrates: 9 to 1! Hemp packs a whopping 9 carbohydrates in one serving, while Warrior Blend packs only 1. While carbohydrates are an essential component of a healthy diet, most vegans will tell you they have no problem getting enough carbs in their daily routine. Fruits, vegetables, and grains are the staples of a vegan diet, meaning carb and sugar overload is a real concern! Warrior Blend is a much better choice when it comes to carbs.
Protein: 10 to 19. One portion of hemp seed protein only contains 10 grams of protein, while Sunwarrior Warrior Blend has 19! That’s nearly twice the portion of protein in just one serving. Are you convinced yet?
Fat: 2.5 to 2. Even though Warrior Blend has the addition of coconut, it still has less fat than hemp alone.
Fiber: 4 to 1. Now if you are looking for more dietary fiber in your life, hemp might be for you! But for the majority of vegans packing in the beans, rice, lentils, quinoa, oatmeal, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and dried snacks like raisins and prunes, fiber is no problem at all! In fact, too much fiber can lead to bloating, abdominal pain, cramping, gas, and unpleasant bowel movements. No, thank you.
Hemp protein by itself packs in more magnesium, potassium, and calcium than Sunwarrior Warrior Blend, but less iron and amino acids. Both iron and amino acids are important, especially for vegan body building. On the whole, Warrior Blend not only tastes better than hemp, but is a complete shake ready to go. While hemp will really need to be doctored up with other ingredients like fruits, veggies, and flavors, Warrior Blend tastes great just with water. And did I mention that it comes in 5 great tasting flavors?
