Our new Paleo Protein isn’t just for those following the Paleo Diet or Caveman Diet, says GoNutrition® nutritionist Charlotte Mullins.

The Paleo Diet or Caveman Diet can be a tough one to follow, with only a very restricted group of foods to choose from. It can be particularly difficult when it comes to supplements and protein, with dairy and soy both off the menu. That’s why GoNutrition® has launched Paleo Protein, designed specifically to meet the needs of those following this popular diet.

What is the Paleo Diet?

The Paleo Diet is a set of dietary and lifestyle recommendations that promotes eating foods based on the eating habits of the Paleolithic period, before agriculture and industry.

Generally speaking, it is easier to define the diet by what you can’t eat. Dairy or processed grains of any kind, lentils, bread, pasta, legumes, peas, beans and peanuts are off the menu, but other nuts are OK.

Meat, organic poultry and wild caught fish is consumed in large quantities. Animal fat is used in the cooking of food; most preferred sources are saturated fats like coconut oil, lard, duck fat, butter, as well as monounsaturated fats like extra virgin olive oil and avocados. Vegetables feature heavily in the diet and are included in almost every meal. Fruit is sometimes eaten but processed sugars are prohibited, unless it comes from a product such as honey.

The Paleo Diet is less focused on anything weight related and more about achieving ideal hormonal balance which, as followers claim, can lead to optimum health, well-being, body composition and athletic performance.

What is Paleo Protein?

Our advanced Paleo Protein blend brings together two of nature’s powerhouse proteins sources; 95% Beef Protein Isolate and 80% Egg White Protein. Together they provide a huge 28.7g of protein per 30g serving.

Paleo Protein powder is the perfect supplement for those who follow a Paleo Diet or who avoid dairy products. With only 1.7g of fat, and free from carbohydrates, this premium protein blend offers protein sourced from only beef and eggs, qualifying the powder as 100% Paleo Diet suitable.

Being free from dairy and soy means it is also great for many other dietary types, including those who are gluten or lactose intolerant. Dark Chocolate Paleo Protein contains no added sugar and is flavoured using only natural flavouring and Stevia, a natural plant extract.

Paleo Protein is ideal for anyone looking to increase their protein intake, regardless of whether they follow the Paleo Diet or not. It is a great alternative to dairy protein such as whey or casein and contains 95% protein content making it one of the richest protein sources available.

Fundamental to growth, recovery and repair a high protein diet is beneficial for anyone in training and those seeking to increase lean muscle. Paleo Protein is especially beneficial at breakfast, before and after training and in between meals.

GoNutrition® Paleo Protein is produced using only the highest quality Beef Protein Isolate and Egg White Protein. All our ingredients are sourced from leading European suppliers and are blended in house at our market leading production facility. This ensures a premium product can be offered at exceptional value for money.
