Ideal Blend of Protein/Amino Acids:
You may already know that amino acids are the building blocks of all life. Your body utilizes 21 amino acids to create your brain, muscles, organs and skin and much more. Your own body can produce 12 of these amino acids within its own systems, but not the remaining 9. These nine amino acids are known as the "essential amino acids" and cannot be produced by your body, therefore they must be introduced into your system via your diet.
- Complete plant-based protein on-the-go.
- Create optimal health.
- Easily add to shakes and smoothies.
- Great for pre-exercise fuel or post-workout recovery.
- Build lean muscle mass for strength and stamina.
- Reduce cravings for sugars and refined carbs. *
"I've been lucky to be one of the 'behind the scenes' testers of 30g for the last year, and I'm hooked. I'm an average athlete so I can't speak to the efficacy of 30g for someone who is competing in ultra high level athletic events. However, I can say that this has definitely improved my performance in terms of my overall energy and my strength. And I'm happy to report that this easy protein is saving me some time and money since it's easy to add to everything from shakes to oatmeal. It's got a very neutral flavor that I really appreciate." David V.
Cleanest protein sources. 3rd party lab tested. No residual toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, or heavy metals.
Flexible dosage. Each day, you can decide whether you want the full 30 grams of protein in each serving. If not, you can easily reduce the amount and save some money.
Good for People and Planet. Plant proteins use less land, less water, less fossil fuels and create less harmful waste.
Easily digested. Unlike animal proteins, your body can easily and fully digest proteins that come from plants. Studies show that up to 1/3 of the protein in meats remains undigested in the G.I. Tract and can be the source of many common diseases.*
Fully Assimilated. Recent research shows the superior assimilation of plant-based proteins due the fact that plant proteins have a more spacious molecular structure and the body doesn't have to work so hard to actually utilize these proteins.
Bio-Available Protein. Since you actually absorb all this plant protein, it means you don't waste your precious time or money.
The Entourage Effect. Plant-based proteins naturally come along with other nutritional elements, such as fiber and micro-nutrients, that are beneficial for your cells. Because these proteins are showing up with other components that your cells recognize, you're more likely to reap the benefits of protein from plants.
"Full disclosure: I'm not objective since I'm the founder of this company. However, I will say that I've spent the last two years fine-tuning the ratios of the 5 different protein powders so that we get the most complete plant-based protein. And our secondary goal was to achieve a neutral taste profile so that 30g could more easily be incorporated into all kinds of wonderful foods like oatmeal, baked goods, creamy curries, stir-fry, and of course serious protein shakes for us protein lovers. I sincerely hope you like it too." Derek Van Atta
Plant and animal tissues contain a variety of micro-nutrients and proteins. By eating a wide range of foods, you're offering your body a wide variety of amino acids it needs. Plant-based proteins offer your body gentle, bio-available amino acids and a variety of micro-nutrients, fiber, and alkalinizing nutrients. Though plants contain less concentrated amounts of proteins and amino acids, they tend to be easier on your system and on the planet, making them an ideal choice for many when considering the long-term health of your body and planet.
Animal protein contains concentrated amounts of protein and some micro-nutrients such as B vitamins, and can be a helpful part of some people's diets. But the energy necessary to raise the animals to be harvested, combined with the difficulty some people have with digesting animal tissue, the lack of dietary fiber in meat, and the issue of toxic side-effects, it makes sense to look at the percentage of protein that you derive from animal sources. Also, diets based on animal protein can sometimes lead to long-term health issues and often cause extensive environmental damage.
How much protein do you need?
This is actually a surprisingly hot topic considering that human protein consumption has been studied extensively for decades. The USDA has suggested an RDA of .8 grams of protein per kilo of body weight. Other countries and research organizations use slightly higher or lower numbers as their RDA. Some groups argue for a higher baseline RDA based on certain research results. And not surprisingly other studies have concluded the opposite. What should we do? Let's look at what is universally agreed on.
Here are the factors that are generally agreed on for calculating ideal protein intake:
- Your age.
- Your gender.
- Your genetics.
- Your activity level (epigenetics).
- The sources of your protein (epigenetics).
- If you have a specific goal to build more muscle mass.
The USDA recommends that an adult eats approximately .8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight on average. But again, this varies a bit depending on the above factors. Recommendations for women are even more nuanced due to addition factors such as monthly cycle (some women crave more protein at different times of their cycle) and whether a women is pregnant or lactating.
Since there are 2.2 pounds per kilogram, the recommended amounts of protein for adults is .36 grams of protein per pound of body weight. For example a female that weighs 150 pound would have a protein RDA calculation as follows:
150 x .36 = 54 grams of protein on average per day. This translates into ounces as follows.
54g/28.35= 1.9 oz of protein per day for an adult that weighs 150 lbs.
But again this varies from person to person. There's significant debate on this topic, so it's fair to assume that there is approximately a 20-30% variation from person to person depending on the factors that apply to you. If you weigh 150 lbs, then you could feel comfortable with a protein consumption range of 1.5 ounces to 2.5 ounces of pure protein (100% protein) per day.
Note: In the above calculations that refer to "pure protein" which would be 100% protein, it's essential to remember that there is no such thing as 100% protein found in nature, or in stores. The closest you can get to 100% would be protein powders that are 80% pure protein such as Sprouted Brown Rice Protein.
Remember: It's the Amino Stack Effect That Counts.
It's actually impossible to do an accurate calculation on your daily protein intake when you're eating a normal diet that includes a variety of foods. Why? Because even foods we don't normally think of as "protein foods" such as veggies, actually contain good quantities of amino acids. And remember that it's amino acids that your body is using not this handy word, "protein". Remember, "protein" is simply a word we normal people use so we don't have to say, " 9 essential amino acids that we must consume."
Your body uses Amino Acids every moment, not "Protein."
Allow us to get technical for a moment here. Chemists and Biologists use the word "protein" for any combination of Amino Acids, and there are hundreds of "proteins" found in nature. Why? Because amino acids are the building blocks of all life forms. So these multitudes of amino acid chains that are labeled "proteins" create everything from insects, birds, plants and animals.
Eating More Protein for Weight Loss.
Some studies have shown measurable benefits from increased protein consumption as a helpful component in a weight loss program. But only to a certain point. And they discovered that when looking more closely at the data, the researchers realized that the increased protein was more effective for weight loss if the increase in protein directly replaced consumption of sugar and refined carbohydrates as opposed to simply eating more protein without reducing at least some of the sugars and refined carbs.
Can I eat too much protein?
Yes. But this topic is not black and white. It depends on a whole host of factors that range from age, activity level, gender, sources of protein and genetics. It's typically agreed that you are in more danger of eating too much protein if the protein sources include beef and pork due to all the unhelpful "anti-nutrients" that come along with these heavy meats; and, because all meats are completely missing any of the other essential nutrients such as dietary fiber, phyto-nutrients, and many vitamins and minerals that are found in abundance in plant-based food.
As was stated above, the USDA has recommended that males consume an average of .8 grams of protein per day per kilogram of body weight. However they also state that it may be safe to eat as much as 2 full grams of protein per day per kilogram of protein in certain cases depending on a number of factors. You should consult your doctor, or other health care professionals to determine what's best for you.
Do I have to do protein calculations? Or can I trust my gut instead?
Yes. In fact, with all aspects of our health, it's important to remember that each of us is bio-individuated. Especially with this topic of protein consumption! Your protein needs will vary throughout your life based on your age, gender, activity levels, genetics, and the often misunderstood factors such as bio-availability of different protein sources. Learning to carefully tune into our body's daily needs is an invaluable tool. Developing a beautiful relationship with our body enables us to trust our body wisdom hour by hour and day by day to create optimal health and well-being.
Ten FAQs for you to learn more.
1. Why is it named 30g?
Simple. There are 30 grams of clean plant protein in each serving.
2. Does it replace any of Sarvaa's Meal Replacements?
No. 30g is a blend of five organic protein powders with nothing else.
3. Are there some over-lapping ingredients in 30g and Pacha Protein?
Yes. But Pacha Protein has 28 ingredients, and only three ingredients overlap with 30g.
4. What's in 30g?
Good question. 30g is a blend of Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein, Organic Pea Protein, Organic Pumpkin Seed Protein, Organic Hemp Seed Protein, and Organic Sacha Inchi Protein.
(To compare: Pacha Protein is a Meal Replacement, therefore it's full of Vitamins, Minerals, Chlorophyll, Bioflavonoids, Phyto-Nutrients and an appropriate amount of protein. Pacha includes 9 Supergreens, 5 medicinal mushrooms, and Adaptogics like Turmeric, Ashwagandha, & Shilajit.)
5. Is it a complete protein?
Yes. The science of achieving complete protein with these types of high-grade plant proteins is well-developed now. While fairly simple to formulate a complete plant-based protein, it took time to make sure that we sourced our ingredients responsibly, as well as came out with a good taste profile for you.
6. Why did you decide on 30 grams of protein?
A. We've gotten a lot of input from you, our customers who love our Meal Replacement powders, that sometimes you want a simple "all protein" powder that is clean and made to our ultra-high standards.
B. 30 grams per serving is 50% of the average person's Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). With this amount, you'll know that you're receiving a good portion of your daily protein from a clean source.
7. What if I don't really want 30 grams of protein?
Good news. You have choices!
A. Simply use less 30g.
B. Continue to use Sacred Strength or Pacha Protein.
C. Share your smoothie with a friend or family member.
8. What do you mean by clean protein?
We only use certified organic protein powders if they're "Gold Standard" in the nutraceutical industry. Meaning that we only use ingredients that are tested by independent 3rd party labs that provide us with a C.O.A. (Certificate of Analysis) proving that there are no harmful amounts of any toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, pathogens, or heavy metals.
Note: It's an industry "skeleton in the closet" that non-organic protein powders are notorious for failing lab tests for residual toxins.
9. How does 30g compare to whey protein powders?
The positive side of whey protein is that it's typically cheaper and has a fairly good amino acid composition. As you may already know, the negative side of whey protein is that it's an industrial byproduct of cheese manufacturing factories and therefore whey often contains accumulated toxins such as growth hormones, pesticides, herbicides, pathogens and heavy metals. Whey often creates serious gas and bloating in the G.I. Tract. Whey can also create mild to serious allergic reactions in some people.
However, 30g has none of the negative factors mentioned above. In fact, 30g includes many positives such as:
- 30g is allergen free.
- It helps keep your blood pH more Alkaline.
- It's free of all harmful toxins or anti-nutrients.
- It has better bioavailability.
- It's much more environmentally sustainable.
10. Why aren't there flavors like vanilla or chocolate?
A. First, our existing four Meal Replacements all have a lot of flavors going on: like vanilla and chocolate, not to mention the spices like cinnamon and ginger. These four also include greens, roots and mushrooms that can contribute to taste.
B. We wanted to achieve a taste profile that is as neutral as possible so that it can easily be added to all kinds of dishes besides smoothies and shakes.
Here's a blog post where you can learn more about ultra-clean, complete plant-based proteins and other great info.
All Organic Ingredients:
- Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein, (80% Pure Protein).
- Organic Pea Protein, (80% Pure Protein).
- Organic Pumpkin Seed Protein, (60% Pure Protein)
- Organic Hemp Seed Protein, (60% Pure Protein)
- Organic Sacha Inchi Protein, (60% Pure Protein)
1. Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein.
80% Pure Protein. No Starches. Many people still believe that because Sprouted Rice Protein began as rice that it's still "a grain". The truth is: plain, unsprouted rice is only about 7% protein and the rest is starch and fiber. However after sprouting the organic rice kernels, and cold filtering the residual starches, the result is a super clean Organic Rice Protein that is 80% pure protein!
The other 20%. The remaining 20% is Vitamins, Minerals, Dietary Fiber, and a few percent of good carbohydrates. Sprouted Rice Protein is one of the easiest to digest, most affordable, best tasting, and least allergy-prone proteins available. A true superfood.
Ideal for vegans, vegetarian athletes. Anybody looking to increase or improve the amount of clean protein in their diet will greatly appreciate Sprouted Brown Rice protein, which is rapidly becoming one of the most popular plant protein sources. Not only does this plant protein offer a full spectrum of amino acids, it is also easily digested, absorbed and assimilated by the body.
Bio-fermented, The best form of rice protein is Bio-fermented, raw and sprouted whole grain brown rice protein, which combines the sprouted endosperm and the bran. Being naturally hypoallergenic, this source of plant protein can be consumed by almost everyone. Being very lean and low in fat, this source of protein is great for those wanting a pure protein that is easy to digest and promotes weight loss while also promoting muscle recovery. At 80% pure protein, it's great for everyone from athletes to the elderly!
Sprouted vs Non-Sprouted. When brown rice is sprouted, it means that it’s been soaked in water and has begun to germinate. The sprouting process utilizes the starch in the rice kernel as metabolic fuel to produce the new growth of the sprout, and therefore much of the starch that is naturally found in rice get transformed into protein, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. Once sprouted and germinated, the rice actually becomes a potent protein with very little sugar or starch content, unlocking amino acids that drastically improve the body’s ability to utilize and absorb the nutrients, thus becoming a unique superfood that is 80% pure protein..
Blood Sugar Benefits. Unlike ordinary rice protein which can actually boost your blood sugar levels and cause a blood sugar “crash,” sprouted rice protein creates an even flow of energy thru the body without a crash.
There's more. The sprouting and fermenting process greatly decreases the Phytic Acid and Lectin content to make it an even more ideal protein source! Another benefit? Sprouted brown rice protein is often much smoother in texture than other plant proteins, making it ideal for blending into smoothies or drinks.
Important. - You'll be much better off if you use products that utilize only Organic rice protein to eliminate the dangers of residual heavy metals that are almost always found in non-organic rice protein.
2. Organic Pea Protein.
Allergen-Free. Entirely gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free, pea protein is great for vegans or vegetarians. It is known to have a large amount of amino acids, fiber, and a high iron content.
80% pure protein. Pea Protein is also fermented and has left behind the excess starches and the other components that many of us find hard to digest in normal legumes and beans. As well, Pea Protein when combined with Brown Rice Protein includes the three essential Branch Chain Amino Acids, BCAAs.
Branch Chain Amino Acids. There's a lot of buzz amongst athletes and others that are looking for the absolute fastest and best "recovery protein" after intense muscle action of any kind. And traditionally, most people have had to rely on whey protein with all of it's inherent negative qualities. Now with the increased availability of Organic Pea Protein and the perfect synergy of combining Organic Pea Protein with Organic Brown Rice Protein, this duo of proteins can offer your body the best branch chain amino acids available!
What are BCAAs? BCAA are amino acids that have side-chains of three or more carbon atoms, and they account for nearly half of mammalian muscle proteins. These three BCAAs essential to mammals are leucine, isoleucine and valine, and they account for 35% of essential amino acids in muscle proteins, and 40% of the preformed amino acids required by mammals!
Warning. Be sure to use only Organic Pea Protein! Otherwise you'll be consuming residual toxic chemicals in your protein!
3. Organic Pumpkin Seed Protein.
Made from select grade organic pumpkin seeds, this pure plant-based protein source includes an ultra-healthy mix of other macro- and micro-nutrients such as Vitamins, Minerals, Fiber and Essential Fatty Acids.
Minerals. Pumpkin Seed Protein is a great source of bio-available minerals such as Zinc, Magnesium, and Iron.
Healthy Fats. Pumpkin Protein is tied for 1st place alongside Hemp Protein as one of the best protein powders that gives you the side benefits of Essential Fats to enhance brain function and build a resilience in your Autonomic Nervous System.
Alkalizing and Can Reduce Inflammation. Pumpkin seed protein contains significant amounts of Phytonutrients such as chlorophyll that can alkalize and cleanse your body. It can also calm and reduce inflammation in your body.*
Non-Allergenic. Pumpkin Protein meets all the proper criteria for being the perfect allergen-free protein alternative to soy protein, whey protein, collagen protein or shellfish protein. Pumpkin Seed Protein is naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free.
4. Organic Hemp Protein.
Your Benefits. Some of the health benefits of consuming hemp protein include weight loss, increased energy, rapid recovery from disease or injury, reduced inflammation, a boost in immunity and natural blood sugar control.*
Earth Friendly. Hemp protein is one of the most "earth-friendly" plant proteins on the planet. Unlike soy, hemp has not been subject to genetic modification and is one of the most sustainable plants as it needs next to zero pesticides, chemicals, or fertilizers. Much like a weed, hemp is incredibly adaptive to a variety of growing conditions and environments which makes hemp a safe source of protein that requires very little processing to produce.
Great Amino Mix. Much like other seeds, beans, or legumes, hemp seed is an excellent source of protein as it contains all of the 21 amino acids humans need– including the 9 essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own.
Potent. Did you know that 2 tablespoons of hemp protein powder can provide you up to 15 grams of usable protein. Hemp seeds are truly a gift from nature. Containing a balanced and concentrated blend of protein, essential fats (Omega 3 & 6), vitamins, minerals, and enzymes combined, with relatively low levels of sugar, or starches, hemp is one of nature’s perfect foods – a true Superfood!
5. Organic Sacha Inchi Protein.
Complete Protein. Unlike many of the other sources of plant proteins, Sacha Inchi contains all nine essential amino acids. This qualifies it as a more “complete protein" similar to animal proteins. Therefore Sacha inchi is a good replacement for animal proteins and makes it easier than ever to get the nutrients you need on a plant-based diet.*
Brain Food. Sacha inchi can boost your brainpower! It contains neuroprotective properties that can help to reduce the brain’s vulnerability to acute injuries such as strokes and spinal cord injuries. Sacha inchi has also been shown to improve mental health, and may help to reduce the symptoms of depression.*
Vitamin A. Vitamin A is one of the most important micro-nutrients, well known for protecting your eyesight, strengthening your bones, and enhancing healthy growth and reproduction.
Vitamin E. Numerous studies have shown that Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect cells from harmful free radicals. Vitamin E can support your immune system, and prevent a host of degenerative illnesses.*
Satisfying. Because Sacha Inchi is so high in both protein and beneficial fatty acids, Sacha Inchi can go a long way towards creating a delightful sense of satiety for hours after being consumed.
Sustainable. Sacha Inchi is a highly sustainable source of protein, especially when compared to many common sources of protein like meat or dairy. Overall, plant proteins tend to contribute much less environmental pollution and are typically farmed sustainably in their natural habitat.
Tips for Adopting a Plant-based Diet
Adopting a plant-based lifestyle could seem challenging to many people, especially if you’re used to eating mostly animal-based products such as meat. It can be daunting to figure out how to include a healthy balance of different foods. Sometimes it can be hard to stick to a new idea that your body and brain aren’t yet used to. Given the amount of supplements on the market, it can seem like you need lots of time and money just to get started.
Fortunately, beginning a plant-based eating plan does not have to be difficult. Simply make sure you eat a nice mix of plant-based ingredients, including plenty of fruits, fresh vegetables, fresh greens, whole grains, legumes and beans. Most people already have a good variety of these ingredients in their home. For some it's as simple as cutting back on animal products gradually until they're no longer missed.
Avoid the Hype. Plant-based eating isn't just another fad despite a few high profile people who resort to unnecessary hyperbole. More plant protein in your life is simply a healthy, sustainable way of eating that reduces animal products in favor of nutrient-rich and nourishing plant-based foods. It's true that animal-based foods are often protein dense, they tend to lack the many vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and other essential nutrients which are so abundant in whole, plant-based foods.*
Plant-based living emphasizes nutritious foods that provide your body with absolutely everything it needs to thrive. When you begin your journey in plant-based eating, it’s essential to listen to your body and to be very patient with yourself. While it may take a few weeks for you to feel really comfortable with the transition, you’ll soon be receiving many health benefits that come with "plant-based living!"
Health Benefits. Countless studies have shown that plant-based eating is associated with less incidents of many debilitating diseases. Beginning a plant-based diet can help to boost your mental health, increase energy, and ward off illnesses like chronic constipation, and even cancer. Plant-based eating is also a great way to incorporate variety into your diet and to consume a beneficial array of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and other ingredients, each of which contain a wealth of beneficial properties. Sticking to plant-based whole foods can also help avoid health issues that come with eating potentially harmful ingredients like red meat and processed foods.*
Cost Effective. In addition to the many health benefits associated with plant-based living, there are also a variety of other benefits. Plant-based eating is typically more cost effective than eating animal products, which can make it easier to improve your diet on a budget. Even if you occasionally indulge in some of the pricey plant-based ingredients, chances are good that you’ll still end up saving money in the long run.
Better for the Planet. Plant-based eating also tends to be much easier on all the relevant ecosystems than eating animal-based products. Plant proteins all create a much smaller carbon footprint than meat or dairy. With all of these benefits, a plant-based lifestyle is a great choice for a healthy, sustainable way of life. Whether you’re pursuing a plant-based diet for primarily health reasons, to prevent animal cruelty, or protect the environment, it’s typically a great idea to consume more plants and fewer animals!

I've always loved Sarvaa products. I have used their Cacao Plus for years. I started feeling like I needed more protein in my meal replacement so I thought, "Maybe it's time to try a new product".
I tried 2 products very popular products that were not Sarvaa. These products are claimed to be "clean". The way my body immediately responded to these products was very negative. I started examining the ingredients of these other brands a little more closely and I started to see Xanthum Gum, Guar Gum, Synthetic sweeteners and very poor quality of vitamin added, all while still claiming to be of the highest, clean quality. I went back to Sarvaa to request a higher protein powder be added to their products and *lo-and-behold* they had already created one! I tried it and I'm hooked! Its just what I was looking for! I just add a scoop to my Cacao Plus and it creates a protein-packed, very clean smoothie that my body absorbs and processes easily and properly. I very much appreciate the EXTREME QUALITY of this product and its ingredients. I'm so grateful to have this product available. Thanks Sarvaa!
So far I'm liking this better than all the other straight-up protein powders that I've tried. Sometimes I like to add this 30g powder to their Cacao Plus powder roughly 50-50 for the taste aspects and all the other good nutrition stuff in the Cacao Plus one.
