New Organic Plant-Based Protein Powder Introduced by Standard Process Inc.

Veg-E Complete Pro Chocolate and Veg-E Complete Pro Vanilla offer plant-based protein that can be used to make a convenient, great-tasting shake.

Veg-E Complete Pro™ Chocolate and Veg-E Complete Pro™ Vanilla protein powders are the newest products to join the Standard Process selection of shake products. The plant-based Veg-E Complete Pro™ blend combines organic peas, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds in a complete vegan protein.

One serving of powder provides 15 grams of protein and makes a convenient shake when mixed with water.*

“This is a vegan complete protein, which is unique in the protein shake market,” said Tammi Geiger, director of marketing at Standard Process. “We conducted extensive research in order to include all nine essential amino acids in a delicious and organic shake.”

(Blomstrand 2006, Marangon 2010) The body also uses protein for cellular function; enzyme action; increased energy levels; gut health; and support of healthy hair, skin and nails.*
