Fuel your feel good with Vega®. Clean*, plant-based nutrition range hits the UK

Say hello to clean*, plant-based nutrition with Vega®. Made from plant-based food ingredients, Vega®’s premium range is designed to support your active lifestyle.

As North America’s number one choice for plant-based protein powders[1], Vega®’s UK arrival has been long-awaited. The brand is known for creating clean*, plant-based products that are bursting with a carefully balanced combination of plant-based food ingredients.

For Vega®, this means offering great-tasting, nutrient dense and convenient products that are:

  • Non-GMO
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • Gluten-free
  • Non-dairy ingredients

 

With three delicious products to choose from, including Vega® Clean* Protein (Chocolate and Vanilla flavours), Vega® Clean* Energy (Strawberry & Grapefruit Infusion flavour) and Vega® Essentials Nutritional Powder (Chocolate and Vanilla flavours), there’s a product to help fuel your feel good whatever your wellness goal – whether you choose to shake, blend, or bake.

Vega® Essentials – A nutritional powder made from a blend of pea, flaxseed and hemp, and with ingredients made from leafy greens and vegetables, Vega® Essentials Nutritional Powder gives you the nutritional building blocks to start your day strong. High in protein, fibre, vitamins and certain minerals and omega-3 – as well as low in sugars – try teaming a scoop of Vanilla with coconut drink and strawberries, or a serving of Chocolate with almond drink and banana for a tasty breakfast smoothie.

Vega® Clean* Protein – A protein powder made from a complete, multisource protein blend of pea, hemp, alfalfa and pumpkin seed, Vega® Clean* Protein is high in protein and low in sugars. The high-quality protein source, containing BCAAs, helps to build and maintain muscle. Simply team with your favourite dairy-free drink or ice cold water, or whizz up into a smoothie for when you’re on the move***.

Vega® Clean* Energy – Get the energy you need to perform before your workout starts – and help keep it going all workout long. With energy from carbohydrates, Vega® Clean* Energy also has extracts from green and black tea, as well as electrolytes**. Just mix one scoop with ice cold water and sip before you hit the gym, or drink during your workout to top-up your tank… Because when you’re training for life, ready-for-anything is better with Vega® Clean***.

The Vega® range is available now from Whole Foods Market and Planet Organic, and Holland & Barrett stores and Amazon.com from 1st March – with RRPs of £26.99 for Vega® Clean* Protein (552g tub); £29.99 for Vega® Essentials (613g tub) and £19.99 for Vega® Clean* Energy (428g tub).
