(Dairy-Free) is a plant-derived protein powder alternative to our popular whey-based SitoMeal™. It is free of casein, lactose, and gluten and offers the same comprehensive nutrient blend as the original SitoMeal-DF™. When used with a balanced whole foods diet, SitoMeal-DF™ is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness.
SitoMeal-DF™: Featuring 100% Pea Protein
SitoMeal-DF™ is made with a natural pea protein concentrate offering a high level of functionality and nutritional
benefits. Using a patented protein technology, the production process does not use any chemicals. The raw materials, North American grown yellow peas, are not genetically modified (non-GMO).
Pea protein has an excellent array of amino acids, including high levels of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). While its amino acid profile is similar to whey protein, it is particularly high in arginine, leucine, lysine and tyrosine. Pea protein is a true vegan protein which has excellent digestibility (98%) and is hypoallergenic.
As pea protein has ACE inhibitory activity, it may have a positive effect on the maintenance of normal blood pressure levels. It has also been shown, in rat studies, to have a positive impact on total cholesterol and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) by stimulating bile acid formation and excretion.
Additional Highlights of SitoMeal-DF™
- NatureFolate™ –natural vitamin folates that are found in foods such as spinach and are immediately “active” and bioavailable to the human body.
- Creatine MagnaPower® for energy reserves – stabilized creatine plays an important role in the maintenance and regeneration of ATP, and helps to increase muscle mass, strength and endurance.Vegetarians appear to have lower tissue creatine concentrations, since creatine is mostly found in animal foods such as herring, pork, beef, salmon and tuna.
- Vanilla SitoMeal-DF™ contains no sucrose, fructose, or artificial sweeteners, and is naturally sweetened with the herb stevia.
