Q: Can you help me with recommended daily intakes on the Thriving Protein range?
The product contains 5mg vitamin B6, which is 714% of the RDI for children and 313% of the RDI for adults.
RDI is the recommended daily intake. This is the levels of intake of essential nutrients considered, to be adequate to meet the known nutritional needs of practically all healthy people. Usual intake at or above this level has a low probability of inadequacy or deficiency of that vitamin or mineral. As such, RDI levels for vitamins are quite low, as we require only small amounts of vitamins to stop us from getting deficiency conditions. Higher amounts of the vitamins up to the upper level of intake will provide further benefit, and therapeutic levels of certain vitamins can be many times higher than the RDI’s.
The upper level of intake is the usual intake at or above this level, which has a low probability of inadequacy. The upper level of intake for vitamin B6, for example is 20mg for children 4-8 years. This means that although the amount of vitamin B6 for children is a lot higher than the RDI, it is only 1/4 of the upper level of intake. This product therefore provides an excellent dosage of vitamin B6 to provide sufficient levels not only to reduce the risk of inadequacy, but also to have a beneficial effect in the body, and it also has sufficient levels to have a benefit beyond stopping deficiency conditions. It is however well within safe limits as set by the national health and medicinal research council.
Q: What is Thaumatin?
Thaumatin is a 100% natural sweetener harvested from the western and central African rainforests, to which it is indigenous. Thaumatin is a natural protein physically extracted from the Katemfe Fruit (thaumatococcus daniellii). Thaumatin is extracted from the fruit of the plant using water extraction methods and is not subject to treatment by any additives, herbicides or pesticides and maintains a GMO, natural and allergy free status.
Thaumatin is very sweet and compared to sucrose by weight it is 2000 x sweeter – so a little goes a long way.
Q: Can I take Thriving Protein if I am pregnant/lactating?
We advise on all of our products to seek advice from your health care professional on taking our products if you are pregnant or lactating. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels.
By law, we are required to put a warning on the product if we ADD vitamins and minerals. Sounds crazy but it is true.
We invite you to research the product to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
We can advise that our team member – Ricki Harrison – has taken all of our products during both her pregnancies and breastfeeding periods – and attributes her great pregnancies and energy levels to our products.
Q: ‘Failure to Thrive’ - Is there a more natural alternative to Sustagen kids?
We know that most Paed's suggest Sustagen kids - which unfortunate as its first ingredient as maltodexrin - GMO corn!
Not sure why they suggest this as it contains milk and soy - which are super high on the allergen list.
Thriving Protein is a vegan based protein, with no corn, gluten, soy, sugar, and definitely no GMO ingredients. It is a sprouted brown rice and sprouted pea protein base - which is easy on the digestive system and super high in usable protein. No whey base means its not hard on the liver, and there is no sugar, sweetened with thaumatin, a plant based sweetener, so no sugar dump on the little bodies.
No additives, preservatives or synthetics in our products, just wholefood goodness - a much more natural alternative.
Q: I've been told your Thriving Protein has probiotics in it but I can't see it on the ingredients?
Our Thriving Protein has a fermented blend which we have highlighted here as an example in our Thriving Protein - Cacao Choc 450g
The bio-fermentation process results in a 10,000 CFU (colony forming units) probiotic extract which is both dairy free and 100% shelf stable.
Ingredients: Certified Organic Sprouted Pea Protein Isolate, Certified Organic Cacao Powder, Certified Organic Whole Rice Milk Powder, Certified Organic Sprouted Whole Rice Protein Isolate, Flaxseed Meal, Aquamin (Lithothamnion calcareum) - Natural Calcium Source, Bio-Fermented Sprout Blend (Mung Beans, Brown Rice, Red Lentils, Chick Peas, Linseed, Alfalfa Seed, Millet, Quinoa, Filtered Water), Natural Cacao Extract, Chia Seed Meal, Apple Pectin, Certified Organic Wholefood Herbal Extract Blend (Certified Organic Curry, Guava, Lemon, Amla, Holy Basil & Annatto), Natural Sweetener (Thaumatin), High Vitamin D Mushroom Powder.
Q: What are the Phytic acid levels in our rice protein?
We use three grades of whole grain brown rice protein, the Phytic acid levels in these are:
Grade 1 - Ave. Phytic Acid 0.84%
Grade 2 - Ave. Phytic Acid 0.79%
Grade 3 - Ave. Phytic Acid 0.7%
Our son loves his choccy milk with Thriving Protein everyday, so we feel so much better giving him this as we have had tummy issues and finally we are getting somewhere with this & probotics.
