- Frequently Asked Questions
What are BCAAs?
Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential protein building blocks (amino acids) because they cannot be made by your body and must be acquired through protein in food. Protein helps to build and maintain muscles*.
* A varied and balanced lifestyle is recommended for good health.
Why did you choose the types of protein to create this blend?
Not only is all the protein used minimally processed, but pea, hemp, alfalfa, and pumpkin seed protein together provide a complementary and high quality amino acid profile.
What benefits does Vega® Clean* Protein have?
Vega® Clean* Protein is a protein blend without compromise—you’re getting a very good amino acid profile, without things you might not want. That’s why we call it Vega® Clean*!
Vega® Clean* Protein is plant-based, non-GMO, gluten-free, and made with non-dairy ingredients, with only natural flavours and without artificial colours.
Why is the texture of Vega® Clean* Protein different from my whey protein?
Vega® Clean* Protein is made from a blend of pea, hemp, alfalfa and pumpkin seed protein. Because these are different ingredients than whey protein, it has a different texture. You may find that you prefer Vega® Clean* Protein either shaken with water, a plant-based drink, or blended into your favourite protein shake or smoothie recipe.
I don’t like the taste of stevia; will I like Vega® Clean* Protein?
We choose steviol glycosides (stevia) because we think it’s the best available sweetener for our products. It is plant-based, contains no calories, and has a glycaemic index (GI) of zero. We use a high-quality steviol glycosides that has the most minimal of aftertastes. If you can still taste the steviol glycosides, try adding a squirt of lemon juice or a handful of dark leafy greens to your Vega® Clean* Protein shake.
Is Vega® Clean* Protein organic?
This is a great question! At Vega® we source organic ingredients where possible. We believe in finding suppliers that have similar core values to us, with whom we can build long-lasting partnerships. These suppliers may provide us with organically grown raw materials free from herbicides and pesticides, but might not have their organic certification. Organic certification is an extensive process that can be cost prohibitive for some of these smaller scale farms. Sustainability and sustainably grown ingredients is something that is very important to Vega®.
Is Vega® Clean* Protein non-GMO?
Yes, Vega® Clean* Protein is verified non-GMO through the US-based “Non-GMO Project” which is also representative for the European context.
Is Vega® Clean* Protein gluten-free and vegan?

Vega® Clean* Protein is tested to ensure every batch consistently results in less than 20ppm for gluten, which is recognised by the European Commission, Health Canada, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization as the threshold for coeliac.
