From the fridge and larder, not the lab
Our ingredients come from the fridge and larder, with only the addition of pure high quality whey and organic pea protein to deliver the extra protein your diet demands. Contains no added thickeners (like guar gum or xanthum gum) or fillers (like microcrystalline cellulose). Neither are artificial flavourings used. Its appetizing flavour comes entirely from the vegetables, super nutritious seaweed and seasoning of garlic, thyme and pepper.
Full Ingredients List (look – no artificial additives!)
European Whey Protein Concentrate (contains milk) from grass fed cows (using vegetarian rennet) and Organic Pea Protein with dehydrated: leek, kelp (fronds of Ascophyllum nodosum), spinach, thyme, garlic and black pepper. May contain peanut, nut, mustard, gluten, soya, sesame or celery traces.
This soup mix has a delicious leek and pea savoury taste and creamy texture, with zero added salt, sugar or artificial sweeteners (like sucralose or aspartame). It’s a ‘clean’, all-natural, real food alternative to getting protein in your diet. There’s no need to resort to bodybuilding and diet supplements, like those ‘dirty’ (check out the ingredients list!) additive-laden protein shakes and diet shakes.
Why a soup not a protein shake?
Whey is a food ingredient that has been part of our diet for centuries. It’s a by-product from cheese making and many uses have been found for it down the centuries. Remember the nursery rhyme “little Miss Muffet, sat on her Tuffet (whatever that is?) eating her curds and whey”? Cooking whey makes ricotta cheese and it is substituted for water or milk in baking. Whey also replaces stock in some soup recipes, including ours. So, whey absolutely belongs in soup, as does vegetable goodness. What doesn’t belong are sugar, artificial flavourings, sweeteners, gums and additives, so we don’t need to put them in. Quite simply, you cannot make something that tastes like a dessert without using stuff that’s not great for you or artificial alternatives. The solution is to not make a dessert. Instead, make a soup that tastes of the goodness that’s in it. That’s how Gainsmith’s Diet Whey Soup Mix range came to be.
Why try a whey protein soup?
The flavour and nutritional value of Eat Clean Diet Whey Leek & Pea Soup Mix comes from the plant-based goodness in it. Over 40% of the mix is botanical. Vegetable – leeks and spinach – are more than 20% by weight.
Getting enough protein can be tough, given the food choices available in our busy lives. Finding options that aren’t loaded with something else – like excess salt or saturated fat or too much carbohydrate – is difficult. And, eating the same stuff all the time isn’t just boring, it’s ill-advised. Even a simple tin of tuna comes with a warning about the possible build up of heavy metals in the body.
Drinking a mug of Gainsmith’s Diet Whey Soup Mix can become part of your normal healthy eating regimen, boosting protein intake. Being low carb and low fat, it won’t dramatically impact calorie counting nor carbohydrate or fat intake. It’s great for lunch with your favourite sandwich or jacket potato, or on it’s own.
Following a high protein/ low carb diet for weight loss? Needing extra protein to retain or build muscle mass? Perhaps you are vegetarian or flexitarian and just looking for an extra source of protein in your diet? Why not try Gainsmith’s Diet Whey Soup Mix range? It’s the easy way to add extra protein to your healthy eating regimen!
