Vega Sport® Premium Protein: Product of the Year!

The voters have spoken. Vega Sport® Premium Protein is the #1 Sport Nutrition Product of the Year 2020.

The survey was conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research. It surveyed 40,000 consumers who chose Vega (out of many other brands in this category!) as the Product of the Year in Sport Nutrition.

Each year, POY accepts entries from consumer goods that demonstrate innovation in their function, design, packaging, or ingredients, and a category winner is selected. If you’d like to know more about POY you can find more information here.

Vega Sport® Premium Protein helps you find your competitive edge by helping you recover, so you can train again sooner and perform better. Tissue and cell regeneration is an ongoing process that continues on after our workouts are done, and our bodies convert the protein from our diets into amino acids to be used to repair and rebuild muscles. That’s why each serving of Premium Protein includes 30g plant-based protein.

 

5 reasons why we love Vega Sport® Premium Protein so much:

  • The 30g of plant-based protein helps rebuild muscle post workout. We use a multisource blend of pea, alfalfa, pumpkin seed, and organic sunflower seed protein. That includes 5g BCAAs: leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
  • Tart Cherry, turmeric, and black pepper extract are added to aid muscle recovery. Those plant compounds act as the (tart) cherry on top when it comes to post-workout nutrition.
  • We don’t use any artificial colors, preservatives, or sweeteners. Just like any other Vega product, Vega Sport® Premium Protein is vegan, certified with Vegan Action.
  • Vega Sport® Premium Protein is NSF certified for Sport. NSF International is an independent and accredited organization that tests products for over 270 athletic banned substances, and ingredients such as heavy metals. It certifies that what’s on the label is the product and includes ongoing testing of the product formulation, labels and bi-annual audits of our manufacturing facility to ensure Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) compliance.
  • Vega Sport® Premium Protein comes in delicious flavors! Try it in classic Vanilla or Chocolate, or switch things up with Mocha, Chocolate, Berry, Vanilla, or Peanut Butter flavors.

 

What’s the best way to consume Vega Sport® Protein?  

We love shaking up one serving with ice-cold water or almond milk and enjoying it right after a workout. Any way you want to consume it is totally up to you! If you’re looking for some smoothie inspo, don’t forget to check out our recipe center here.
