The process of finding sustainable sources to reach that threshold is already in progress and should be attainable in the future. In the meantime, only the finest quality, natural and wild harvested ingredients are used. This includes using a Pea protein that is produced in Belgium under the newest and most stringent European FSSC 22000 food safety standard, meeting all EU directives for food products in terms of undesirable substances like heavy metals, pesticides and toxins, all of which are monitored.
How long can PlantFusion Lean be stored? What is its Best Used By date?

A date code is printed at the bottom of the container to indicate the month and year (MM/YR) by when it is best used. For example, if the date code reads 06/18, that means that this product is best used before June of 2018.
What is the Ecolean™ protein that is used in the PlantFusion Lean™ Amino Acid Infused Protein Blend?
Ecolean™ is a unique source of yellow pea protein found in the hills of northern France that shows unprecedented levels of protein, electrolytes, and key amino acids. It’s the only plant-protein with a clinical study to show that it curbs hunger 35% better than whey protein.

- Plant-based and also organic when possible

What is ModCarb?
ModCarb is a proprietary blend of six organic grains (Oat, Amaranth, Quinoa, Buckwheat, Millet, and Chia) which provide complex carbohydrates rich in beta-glucans. Unlike simple sugars or maltodextrin, ModCarb‘s complex carbohydrate structure allows it to release glucose (the body’s primary fuel source) at a much more natural pace and rhythm for sustained energy. This has the potential to minimize sudden cravings and/or energy dips during a typical daily routine. The technology used to create ModCarb™ won an International Food Technology award in 2013. Currently PlantFusion LEAN and PlantFusion Phood are the only two products you will find in premium natural specialty stores that contain this ingredient.
What is ChromeMate® and why is it added to PlantFusion Lean?
ChromeMate® is a unique, patented niacin-bound chromium complex. Clinical research shows that ChromeMate® is superior to every other form of chromium for blood sugar control, and maintaining healthy body weight.
What is banaba leaf extract and why is it added to PlantFusion Lean?
Banaba leaf is an extract of leaves from the tropical banaba bush. It has been used for thousands of years in India and the Philippines to naturally treat diabetes and low blood sugar levels. Corosolic acid, the active ingredient in banaba leaf, has been shown to inhibit carbohydrate digestion resulting in a reduction in blood sugar. In fact, some studies have shown that it can help lower blood sugar within sixty minutes.
What is Erythritol?
Erythritol is a naturally occurring sweetener found in small amounts in grapes, melons, and mushrooms. It has only 0.2 calories per gram which is 95% fewer calories than sugar. It does not affect blood sugar or insulin levels and has a glycemic index rating of zero. Erythritol is unique because it is metabolized differently than many other sugars because its molecular structure is much smaller. Due to its small molecular size, only 90% gets absorbed into the bloodstream while the rest is naturally eliminated. Because only 10% actually reaches the large intestine; erythritol doesn’t cause the gastric distress that is attributable to many other low caloric sugars.
PlantFusion Lean contains nine grams of fiber per serving. Isn’t this too much fiber?The fiber blend contains soluble fiber that can slow the absorption of sugar and help improve blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels are controlled, it can tend to be more filling than low-fiber foods, so you're likely to have a maintained satiety. Soluble fiber absorbs excess liquid in the colon, preventing diarrhea by forming a thick gel and adding bulk as it passes intact through the stomach
When and how often do I take PlantFusion Lean?
Based on the clinical study, it’s best to take PlantFusion Lean 30 minutes prior to meals, however, it can be taken anytime day or night for appetite control. It can also be used in the morning as a great way to start the day or after exercise to replenish and recover lost nutrients.Can PlantFusion Lean be used together, or with, other medicines or supplements?

While negative interactions are unlikely; you should always consult with your doctor regarding questions about medications that you might be taking. If your doctor has inquires, they can contact our dedicated technical support line at 1-800-519-6266
How long will PlantFusion Lean stay fresh after mixing it?
While PlantFusion Lean will stay fresh for many hours after mixing; it is best to consume the liquid within twenty minutes after preparation because the fibers in it can actually begin to absorb the liquid as it sets. This increase in viscosity (thickness) can grow by as much as 4 times in as little as 20 minutes. This is part of the reason why many people report a satiating effect of feeling full after consuming the product – a key strategy in managing appetite.
What should I mix PlantFusion Lean with?
PlantFusion Lean was originally designed to be mixed in a shaker with water for convenience; however, many people choose to mix it with other things such as almond milk, rice milk, etc. The vanilla also mixes with some juices (mostly citrus).

While PlantFusion Lean was designed to be taken by the average person, if you have any concerns about how it may affect your health or the affects it may have on your medications or treatments; it is always best to consult with your primary health care professional and provide the toll free number, 1-800-519-6266, for any questions that need to be answered.
