Have you ever wondered why there’s never been a typical whey protein powder from 5% Nutrition? We’re sure many of you thought we’d be just like everyone else and release a whey protein or perhaps a whey/casein mix, after all, protein is considered by most bodybuilders to be the macronutrient king, and every company makes at least one. As popular as protein powders are, and despite what the competition decides to do, Rich Piana was never a fan of protein powder. Instead, he felt complete meals high in protein from quality whole food sources was the best way to go, and that applied to his supplements as well. So, when 5% Nutrition decided it was time to create a protein powder, we knew we had to stay in line with Rich’s beliefs, which means anything we came up with had to be the whole-food-based.
You can be sure we didn’t simply follow the crowd and create another tired, same-old protein powder. We knew we had to be different and we think we’ve succeeded with a protein formula that would make Rich Piana proud – introducing Real Carbs + Protein! We did it 5% Nutrition style by creating a complete whole food meal instead of just a protein powder. We combined 20 grams of protein from whole food sources such as Beef, Whole Egg, Chickpea and Chicken, then we added 30 grams of complex carbohydrates from oats, sweet potatoes, and rice, thereby creating the perfect bodybuilding meal. This exclusive product is meant to help you meet your macronutrient needs and can be consumed several times a day as needed, after all, it’s real food and we know life sometimes gets in the way and you can’t always sit down to a real food meal.
Let’s take a look at this exceptional formula:
5% Nutrition Protein Blend – 20 Grams
You may wonder how we come up with a protein complex like this. There’s no doubt we’ve created an advanced protein complex that raises the bar in the supplement industry: HyrdoBEEF™ Hydrolyzed Beef Protein, Whole Egg Powder, Chickpea Protein, and Organic Chicken Powder. This combination of whole food proteins creates premium quality, highly bioavailable protein complex that features multiple digestion rates along with high nitrogen retention. We set out to create an innovative protein complex that will support protein synthesis as well as help keep you in an anabolic environment, which in turn supports recovery and muscle growth. Isn’t that the bottom line? (1)
HydroBEEF™ Hydrolyzed Beef Protein – HydroBEEF™ is a trademarked protein that can be compared to whey protein in terms of quality, purity, digestibility, and bioavailability. This is a whole food protein created by using a unique infusion process that preserves all the naturally occurring amino acids, peptides, nucleotide fractions, vitamins, and minerals that have made beef a key part of bodybuilding diets for over 50 years. HydroBEEF has a BV (Biological Value) score comparable to whey as well as a slower rate of digestion than whey. Additionally, it boasts a 97% protein content with a high level of the anabolic BCAAs along with low fat, low cholesterol, and low sodium contents. As you can see, HydroBEEF is a potent protein that supports an anabolic environment. (2)
Whole Egg Powder – Eggs are well known as a high-quality protein source with an excellent bioavailability score of 100 and a medium rate of digestion, making them an obvious addition to Real Carbs + Protein. Of course, we use only Whole Egg Powder that’s sourced from real, whole eggs. (3)
Chickpea Protein – Chickpeas are a vegan source of quality protein that is high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals with a medium digestion rate. (4)
Organic Chicken Powder – A favorite of bodybuilders, chicken is a high-quality slow digesting protein with a high content of B vitamins and minerals such as selenium.
It’s clear that we have created an advanced complex of whole food proteins that promote an extended anabolic environment, this is exactly what you should expect from a quality whole food meal. Whether consumed at the beginning of your day, post-workout or anytime during the day you need protein and can’t sit down to a meal, Real Carbs + Protein will cover your needs for hours, no matter what your goals are.
Total Carbohydrates – 30 Grams
Whole Grain Oats – Another staple of many bodybuilding diets, Oats are a low glycemic, low sugar carb source that won’t cause insulin spikes yet will provide the carbs your body needs for glycogen replenishment and cellular energy. (5)
Sweet Potato – If you’ve noticed, the trend is the use of whole foods you can find in the diets of many bodybuilders, foods that have been diet staples for decades. Sweet Potatoes certainly qualify because of their delicious taste, solid nutrient profile, and slow rate of digestion that will not cause insulin spikes. Additionally, Sweet Potatoes contain high amounts of calcium, potassium, phosphorus, B vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin C. (6)
Rice – Rice is yet another diet staple for many bodybuilders, here we’ve used brown rice because brown rice is low glycemic and nutritionally complete. (7)
We believe that Rich would be proud of Real Carbs + Protein because he believed that real food was one of the most important keys to success in bodybuilding and certainly the best way to go nutritionally. By focusing on that principle, we used innovative whole food protein sources complexed with high-quality complex carbohydrates to create a unique whole food meal that stands alone in the industry. Real Carbs + Protein is not just another product with a high level of protein on the label, this supplement redefines the category with an emphasis on premium quality protein and carbohydrates that are both sourced from real food.
You may be wondering how it tastes, with flavors such as Banana Nut Bread, Blueberry Cobbler, and Chocolate, it tastes amazing! You have to try all three!
As you can see, Real Carbs + Protein is unlike any other protein powder on the market because it provides both protein and carbs, yet it’s not a meal replacement powder because it provides protein and carbs from whole food sources, making it a complete meal. That’s a big difference, especially when you compare the ingredients of the leading meal replacement powders to Real Carbs + Protein. Unlike those other powders, we use premium quality, highly bioavailable sources of real food proteins such as beef, whole egg, chickpea, and chicken as well as low glycemic real food carbohydrates from oats, sweet potatoes, and rice – and it comes in 3 stunning flavors. How’s that for protein done Rich Piana style?
