Can I eat Vega products if I have diabetes?
This is a simple question with a not-so-simple answer, since every person living with diabetes has unique needs. Whether you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes it’s always best to work with to your health care practitioner to find out what foods fit into your individualized diet and personal activity level. With that said, we'd love to share information on how some of our products affect blood sugar management, so you can make an educated decision based on your own health needs, which you can find here: http://myvega.com/vega-life/vega-blog/faq-can-eat-vega-products-diabetes/
Are Vega products organic?
This is a great question! When you check out the ingredient panel of our labels, you’ll see “organic” in front of the specific ingredients that are certified organic. Why aren’t all of our ingredients certified organic? We source organic ingredients where possible. We maintain a focus on small scale, domestic suppliers wherever possible to help out the little guys. We believe in finding suppliers that have similar core values to Vega with whom we can build long-lasting partnerships. These suppliers may provide us with organically grown raw materials free from herbicides and pesticides, but might not have their organic certification. Organic certification is an extensive process that can be cost prohibitive for some of these smaller scale farms. Sustainability and sustainably grown ingredients is something that is very important to Vega. Learn more on our Sustainability page.
How many servings are there in Vega One?
The serving size for Vega One is one scoop. For the large tubs of Vega One there are 22 servings in Natural, 20 servings in Mocha, Coconut Almond, Berry, French Vanilla and Vanilla Chai and 19 in Chocolate. For the small tubs of Vega One there are 11 servings in Natural and 10 servings in Mocha, Coconut Almond, Berry, French Vanilla, Vanilla Chai and Chocolate. There are more servings in the Natural flavor because its serving size is smaller than the serving sizes of other flavors, therefore, more servings fit in the tub. You get the same nutritional value as the other flavors, without the volume added by the natural flavorings. Natural provides the best value as it is the same price as the other flavors but gives you extra servings per container!
Can I take Vega products if I am pregnant?
We always recommend you check with your healthcare practitioner on whether or not you personally should use Vega products while pregnant or breastfeeding. They’ll have a better scope of your overall health and wellness goals, and whether you are introducing a new food or supplement into your routine or continuing your current intake. If you are aware of any sensitivities or allergies to any ingredients in Vega products, we definitely recommend avoiding that product—whether you are pregnant or not.
Can Vega One help me lose weight?
We love this question because we get to talk about nutrient-density (a.k.a. high nutrient-to-low calorie ratio). Vega One is a nutrient dense food, so you can use it any way that you would use a food. You can enjoy it on its own or as a part of your favorite smoothie. You can even cook with it, making pancakes or muffins like these. Vega One supports you in reaching your optimal weight because it’s high protein, high fiber and high satiety. I love Vega One because it tastes great, is satisfying and offers 20 grams plant-based protein, 6 servings of greens and 6g fiber in 170 calories or less (150 for Natural flavor).
Can I mix Vega products with dairy?
Being a plant-based company, we recommend non-dairy beverages such as almond, hemp, coconut, or rice milk with your favorite Vega product, but that doesn’t mean you can’t mix it with whatever you have in the fridge!
Why isn't my tub full?
You might wonder why we aren’t filling our tubs right to the top of the brim or why we don’t make a smaller tub to fit the amount of the powder found inside. The truth is, when the tubs are filled, they’re actually full. It’s not until they’ve been sealed and shipped out to you that the powder begins to settle and become more compressed. Just like pillows, (or bag of chips) Vega protein powders settle, compress, and appear to not fill the tubs upon opening. But you can be guaranteed that every scoop still contains the nutrition you’re looking for.
What happens if I blend my silica pack?
While we're sure this made your smoothie extra thick, there’s nothing to be concerned about. The silica-based desiccant packet in Vega products is non-toxic. While not recommended to eat, no adverse reactions are expected if the desiccant is accidentally swallowed. Silica is a naturally-occurring mineral that is processed into a silica packet. Since it is a moisture-absorbing substance, if you drank most of your smoothie before you discovered you blended the silica pack into it, drink an additional amount of water throughout the day to help you stay hydrated. If you’re still worried, do not hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
