Q: What is Fucoxanthin?

A: Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid (like lutein and lycopene), a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free-radical damage. It is the pigment that gives brown seaweed its characteristic color and also participates in photosynthesis (the conversion of light into energy). It is found in several different types of brown seaweed. Marine vegetables (edible seaweed) have long been considered among the most nutritious vegetation on Earth, and have been included in the diets of various Asian cultures since ancient times. Recent research suggests that natural compounds in marine vegetables can significantly affect fat metabolism and that fucoxanthin is one of the key ingredients that, along with diet and exercise, may have helped to minimize health and weight issues among Asian populations where it is consumed the most.

Q: What is thermogenesis?

A: Thermogenesis is the process by which the body increases its metabolic rate, requiring utilization of internal stores of energy, such as fat.

Q: How much protein do the fücoPROTEIN Bars contain?

A: The fücoPROTEIN Bars are an excellent source of protein; the Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts bar delivers 14g (28% of Daily Value) and the Peanut Butter Crunch bar provides 15g (30% of Daily Value), both from milk protein concentrate, brown rice protein concentrate and organic whey protein concentrate.

Q: How much fiber do the fücoPROTEIN Bars contain?

A: The Chocolate with Macadamia Nuts bar provides 7g of fiber (30% of Daily Value); the Peanut Butter Crunch bar provides 9g of fiber (37% of Daily Value). The fibers (organic acacia, chia meal and chia seed) in fücoPROTEIN Bars are specifically chosen to optimize glycemic response.†

Q: What makes fücoPROTEIN Bars different from other bars in the market?

A: fücoPROTEIN Bars are the only dietary supplement bars in the market that contain concentrated fucoxanthin. As opposed to many other bars, fücoPROTEIN Bars provide protein (14g/15g) from whole food sources, other bars include isolated protein from whey or soy. Additionally, we do not add any extra isolated nutrients such as vitamins and minerals to artificially increase the values on the supplement fact panel.

Q: What is the suggested use for the fücoPROTEIN Bars?

A: Adults enjoy two bars daily to supplement a calorie conscious diet and moderate exercise. Product not intended for children.

1Based upon consumption of two bars daily. Product is most effective when used daily, without interruption, in conjunction with a calorie conscious diet and exercise.

This is a preferred protein source for weight management and has been studied for its impact on satiety – the feeling of fullness.

Does Perfect Meal® have a low Glycemic Index (GI)

Glycemic Index reflects the rate of carbohydrate absorption after a meal. Habitual consumption of foods with low GI is associated with optimal weight and supports overall health. Perfect Meal has a low GI (Glycemic Index) of 14. Anything below 55 is considered low GI. (For comparison, white bread has a GI of 71).

Goatein® is an animal protein. Animal proteins are the only complete sources of protein. Vegetarian protein sources such as soy are typically missing one or more of the essential amino acids, even if their protein content is high.

Goatein contains pure goat’s milk from goats raised without antibiotics or growth hormones. Many commercial dairy protein powders are produced from animals given antibiotics and hormones. Many vegetable proteins are made from non-organic or genetically modified organisms and may contain chemical residues.

Goatein is processed without excessive heat so all its elements remain in their natural forms. Other milk protein powders that claim to be minimally processed are in fact subject to invasive processing, including heating and drying at high temperatures.

Protein molecules in goat’s milk have a different structure than those in cow’s milk. This allows certain people who cannot tolerate bovine milk to consume milk protein from goats.

Why should you use Goatein®?

Goatein is a complete source of protein, antibiotic and hormone free and minimally processed.

You could use Goatein if you are on a low carbohydrate diet and are looking to supplement with high quality protein.

You could use Goatein if you want an animal protein but have trouble digesting cow’s milk protein.
