What is the ph level of Clean Lean Protein?

If you follow or are considering following an alkaline diet, then Nuzest Clean Lean Protein is an ideal choice to add to your daily food intake. Nuzest Clean Lean Protein, made from golden pea protein isolate, is the world’s ONLY alkaline protein with a pH reading of 7.8!

Where do you source your peas for the pea isolate and where is the powder manufactured?

We have deliberately chosen pea protein and to source that protein from Europe. The soil, air and water quality of Northern France are generally regarded to be very safe for growing and the process used for isolation is completely free of chemicals. Consumers can feel confident they are selecting a safe vegan protein, rather than fear they are ingesting a protein powder tainted with contaminants.

To learn more about contaminants in vegan protein and our products, I encourage you to read this article: https://www.nuzest-usa.com/concerned-contaminants-many-vegan-proteins-choose-instead.

Are there any sweeteners in any of your protein powders?

Clean Lean Protein is naturally sweetened with a fruit protein derived from a West African plant called the Katemfe Fruit (African Serendipity Berry). The protein is known as Thaumatin. Thaumatin is a protein, but it is classified as a natural sweetener. It is digested in your body just like any other protein. You can learn more about thaumatin here.

Is Clean Lean Protein ok for people with Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis?

Due to the absence of FODMAPs, anti-nutrients, allergens, and gastric irritants, Clean Lean Protein is the perfect protein for people with Crohn's Disease.

How much protein should I be taking after a workout?

This depends on the length of your workout, what your workout consisted of, and your physical size, along with your dietary structure and goals. As a rough rule of thumb, around 1/2 gram of protein per kilogram of body weight consumed within 30 minutes will help encourage recovery and repair of muscle tissue.

Is Clean Lean Protein vegan?

Yes, it is vegan. The peas used in Clean Lean Protein are a vegetable source and the natural flavorings are all plant derived, making Clean Lean Protein 100% vegetarian and vegan.

Is Clean Lean Protein certified organic?

Our peas are grown in France and under strict conditions, and covered to reduce the risk of environmental damage and contamination. Unfortunately, due to local regulations, this means they cannot be certified organic. You can rest assured though that the product is pesticide, herbicide and GMO free. The only certified organic pea proteins available at this time are of uncertain quality and so for the time being we consider Clean Lean Protein to be 'better than organic'.

Why is it important that the product is 'alkaline'?

Our body requires finely controlled pH levels in the blood (as well as tissues and other fluids) in order to maintain optimal health. Modern diets and non-vegan protein sources may cause an increase in acidity in the blood, which then needs to be buffered by the body breaking down bone and muscle tissue to free up 'basic' (alkaline) compounds. Clean Lean Protein provides a high level of good quality protein, without contributing to acid overload in the body.

Can I consume products after the Best Buy Date?

Best Before means that it is probably safe to consume past the best before date, but that its nutritional value is likely to be degraded depending on how it has been stored over that time. For example, if it has been kept cool or in a refrigerator it is likely to last longer. In some regulatory environments, the advice is generally 3 months after Best Before Date. However, even though products are likely to be perfectly safe for several weeks past their Best Before Date, in the interest of safety first, Nuzest does not recommend consuming products past their Best Before or Expiry Date.

Are Nuzest products suitable for children?

None of the products available in the United States (Clean Lean Protein, Clean Lean Protein Functional Flavors, Quick Vita Kick or Good Green Snack bars) are intended for use primarily by people under 12 years. Thus, although they are safe for use by children 4 years and over, in my opinion, they are considered General Use Products and not Children's Products:

"The law defines a "children's product" as a consumer product designed or intended primarily for children 12 years of age or younger."

"General use products are consumer products that are not designed or intended primarily for use by children 12 years of age or younger.

Some products may be designed or intended for use by consumers of all ages, including children 12 years old or younger. Such products would be considered "general use products."

If a consumer older than 12 years of age is as likely, or more likely, to interact with a product than a child 12 years of age or younger, then the product would probably be considered a general use product, depending upon how the product is viewed, using all of the four factors above."

Can I consume products after the Best Buy Date?

Best Before means that it is probably safe to consume past the best before date, but that its nutritional value is likely to be degraded depending on how it has been stored over that time. For example, if it has been kept cool or in a refrigerator it is likely to last longer. In some regulatory environments, the advice is generally 3 months after Best Before Date.

However, even though products are likely to be perfectly safe for several weeks past their Best Before Date, in the interest of safety first, Nuzest does not recommend consuming products past their Best Before or Expiry Date.

Do Nuzest products contain any of the top 8 allergens?

All of our products, except the Good Green Snack bar, are made from ingredients which are free of all 8 allergens. The bar contains tree nuts.

Although we do not use any ingredients containing gluten in the bars, we do not declare the GGS bars to be Gluten Free although we do test them and have not had any positive results to date. However, because the bars are wrapped and packed before the results come back it is not financially feasible to simply destroy tens of thousands of bars from a batch because of a positive result. We therefore take a pragmatic approach and make no declaration.

We also manufacture in three different locations globally with contract manufacturers who are GMP registered. Those locations are New Zealand, Australia and Belgium, which are all highly regarded in terms of quality and integrity.

Some of our products are blended in machines that are also used for products which may contain dairy, gluten or soy, which is why we test our finished products for those particular allergens. We also test for peanuts in the case of Quick Vita Kick.

Which products contain caffeine?
There is only caffeine in Real Coffee, Coffee Coconut and Vanilla Matcha, with negligible amounts in Rich Chocolate. -The amount of caffeine in Real Coffee = approximately 30mg caffeine -The amount of caffeine in Coffee Coconut = approximately 10.48mg caffeine -The amount of caffeine in Vanilla Matcha = approximately 60mg -The amount of caffeine in Rich Chocolate = approximately 4mg (equivalent to less than a quarter the amount of that in a cup of black tea) -The amount of caffeine in Bethany Probiotic Cacao = approximately 5.75mg (equivalent to roughly a quarter the amount of that in a cup of black tea)"

Do you test for heavy metals?
Nuzest regularly tests products for safety including heavy metal levels, allergens and contaminants and the exposure to any heavy metals from Clean Lean Protein is below the thresholds advised by the World Health Organization. The pea protein isolates used to create Clean Lean Protein comes from sustainably cultivated European golden peas grown in Northern France. They are grown in soils that do not have high natural contents of heavy metals. Nor is the environment (air, water, soil) contaminated in any other way. The farmers are committed to sustainable production methods that minimize any use of pesticides or artificial fertilizers and from an environmental and water usage perspective, peas are among the most sustainable of crops. Heavy metals, including lead, are found in many natural foods including fruits and vegetables, grains, and nuts and seeds. They are also found in lesser amounts in meat, seafood, and dairy products. Because heavy metals are naturally occurring in soil, inevitably small amounts will be absorbed into many foods that we eat every day and Clean Lean Protein contains equivalent or smaller amounts of lead than many common foods (based on testing of a sample of Just Natural Clean Lean Protein). Clean Lean Protein also regularly tests at or below the stringent Prop. 65 levels. However, because it is sourced from peas which are grown in soil, each batch may contain varying levels of heavy metals.
