If you could only take one supplement,
what would it contain?
This is the question we asked ourselves when we set out to create Phood. We wanted to offer more than just another supplement. We wanted to create the perfect nutritional program. Everything needed for complete nutritional support and recovery in one simple, easy, delicious shake. And of course if it’s made by PlantFusion it has to be;
- 100% Plant-Based from whole food sources
- No Major Allergens; Dairy, Soy, Gluten, etc
- No Animal
- No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)
Why Phood is Different than Others…
Not Just Carbohydrates
ModCarb & Baobab is a patened blend of organic superstar grains like amaranth, quinoa, and chia. In addition to being low glycemic for sustained energy, it’s also a concentrated source of beta-glucan, a soluable fiber that significantly slows the uptake of carbohydrates and helps modulate sugar levels in the blood. ModCarb is then paired up with Baobab Fruit. A very powerful superfuit, high in antioxidants which drives Phoods ORAC rating up to 4200/serving!
Not Just Protein
PlantFusion Protein- Nearly identical to one serving of our original PlantFusion protein shake. Multi-source blend, contains raw plant proteins, free of common allergens, easily digestible and tastes great. The only plant protein blend comparable to whey protein in amino acid balance and density.
Not Just Omegas
A Multi Source EFA (essential fatty acids) Blend- Our EFA blend provides a whopping 4,400mg of Omega 3-6-9. We accomplished this by choosing the perfect blend of flax, alagin, and sunflower. Alagin, a marine-based oil from algae, is the most unique component of this blend. Not only rich in Omega 3’s but also phytonutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.
Not Just Vitamins & Minerals
NO SYNTHETIC VITAMINS HERE! We’re using vitamin, mineral and other essential nutrients derived from food sources are better absorbed and more bioavailable than nutrients from non-food sources. Whole food vitamins & minerals contain a wide variety of phytonutrients, essential cofactors, natural enzymes, and other metabolites that help enhance nutrient digestion, absorption, and bioavailability.
Not Just Greens
Only Cruciferous Greens. The sprouted cruciferous greens in Phood provide a deep reservoir of potent sulfurous antioxidant compounds such as sulforaphane, glucosinolates, and isothiocyanates. Sprouted cruciferous greens lower both plasma glucose and insulin levels, helping to prevent sugar highs and crashes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Phood gluten free, dairy free, and soy free?
Yes, just like Plant Fusion protein, Phood is also free of all the major food allergens (milk, eggs, fish [e.g., bass, flounder, cod], Crustacean shellfish [e.g., crab, lobster, shrimp], tree nuts [e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans], peanuts, wheat [gluten], and soybean) as identified in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004.
Does Phood contain GMO (genetically modified) ingredients?
No, the ingredients used to formulate Phood have all been carefully selected to ensure purity and potency. Phood has been tested and confirmed non-GMO which is stated on the label.
Does Phood have any certifications?
Phood is produced in a facility that has been certified as being compliant with all Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) by NSF International, a world leader in third party audits and certifications, and the Natural Products Association. In addition, the process for having Phood certified as being Non-GMO through the Non-GMO Product Verification Program and Gluten Free through the Gluten Free Certification Organization has begun and expected to be completed within the next six months.
Why isn't Phood certified organic?
Many of the ingredients in Phood are organic but in order to receive an organic certification; ninety-five percent of the ingredients must be organically certified. The process of finding sustainable sources to reach that threshold is already in process and should be attainable in the future. In the meantime, only the finest quality, natural and wild harvested ingredients are used.
How long can Phood be stored? What is its Best Used By date?
Phood is formulated so that is has a Best Used By date of 24 months from the time of its manufacture; provided that it is in a closed container. 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 06/15, that means that this product is best used before June of 2015.
What is Erythritol?
Erythritol is a naturally occurring low caloric sugar 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. This unique sugar is metabolized differently than many other sugars such as sorbitol or xylitol 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.
How is the erythritol in Phood made?
Erythritol is made from simple mono-saccharides like xylose or ribose which are found in plants. These sugar rich substrates then go through a gentle enzymatic/fermentation process that produces a crystal which is 99.5% pure and without the negative health effects.
Are the whole food vitamins/minerals in Phood “natural source” or synthesized via fermentation?
The whole food vitamins/minerals in Phood are sourced naturally from organic Guava, Lemon, Sesbania (West Indian Pea), Amla (Indian Gooseberry), Holy Basil, and Annatto. These plants and fruits were specifically chosen because of their rich vitamin and mineral content. Together they supply not only a full spectrum of vitamins and minerals but all the naturally occurring constituents such as enzymes and phytonutrients that are present as well. Consequently no fermentation or synthesizing is required as is the case with chemically isolated USP type vitamins and minerals. The plants and fruits are simply dried, milled and analyzed to verify nutrient content. The plant material is then carefully proportioned to the level needed to make 1 kilogram of vitamin/mineral concentrate. For example, it takes 55 kilograms of the Amla plant just to provide the Vitamin C content for one kilogram of the vitamins/mineral blend used in Phood.
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.
What is the source of Vitamin D3 in Phood?
The source of vitamin D3 in Phood comes from Lichen, pronounced (lik-en). Lichen is a complex organism that is formed through the interaction of algae and a mushroom like organism in areas along the sea coast, desert and even the Arctic tundra. It is a natural source of Vitamin D3.
What is ratio of Omega 3/6/9 in Phood?
The Land & Sea EFA blend in Phood contains EFA’s from three different plant sources which includes flax, algae, and sunflower. Delivered in this natural whole food state, the blend not only yields balanced levels of omega 3-6-9, but also valuable phytonutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin. It is then tested by gas chromatography to ensure that the total level of EFA’s in each serving of Phood meets or exceeds label claim.
How is Phood (Plant Fusion products) processed and formulated?
Phood is made up of more than 30 different individual ingredients and adheres to the “Plant Fusion standards” which require that those ingredients be:
- Plant-based and also organic when possible
- Free of allergens
- Free of any harsh processing methods that might alter or destroy their nutritive value.
In addition, there is a direct link to the supplier of each ingredient to ensure traceability, consistency, and potency. Each batch of Phood is produced in a 90,000 sq. ft. NSF/GMP certified manufacturing facility which allows oversight to every aspect of its manufacture. This attention to detail provides the basis for an environment which is born out of a “small company’s passion” but also embraces a “big company’s research and quality control”. That is the essence of Phood.
When and how often do I take Phood?
Phood can be taken anytime, day or night. It can be used in the morning as a great way to start the day or after exercise to replenish and recover lost nutrients. Because of its high protein content it can also be used in between meals for appetite control or simply to maintain a steady stream of nutrients throughout the day.
Can Phood be used together, or with, other medicines or supplements?
Phood is made primarily from natural food sources similar to those you would find in a well - balanced diet. 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 Phood stay fresh after mixing it?
While Phood will stay fresh for many hours after mixing; it is best to consume the liquid within twenty minutes after preparation because the fibers in Phood 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 Phood with?
Phood 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).
Is it safe for people with diabetics, food allergies, or critical illness.
Phood is low-glycemic and has tested negative for the 8 major food allergens. It contains whole food based ingredients; many of which you would find in a very well balanced diet. While Phood 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.
