There can be a lot of questions and misconceptions surrounding vegan protein. Is it good for you? What is it made out of? Is it safe? Which brand is the best? In this article, we are going to boil it down to the very basics so that you have all of the correct information when it comes to vegan protein and why BEAM's is the best.
Why should I take a protein supplement?
Protein supplements are great for anyone looking to improve their overall health. Whether you are trying to recover from a workout, add more muscle, stay full while keeping calories low, or aiming to lose weight, a protein supplement is great for them. Our protein is extremely low in calories and dense in protein that will help keep you full and make your muscles happy.
Why should I take a plant protein over a whey protein?
People choose vegan protein over whey protein due to whey having lactose and vegan being easier on the stomach. Also, vegan proteins have clean dairy-free protein sources that aid in several other benefits.
How did you get it to taste so good?
BEAM controls the entire process of making our products and that includes the flavor house. We spend months perfecting flavors and texture so that our customers get the best experience and the best-tasting protein on the market.
How much protein and calories are in each serving?
There are 20 grams of protein and 100 calories in each serving!
What is SMOOTPROTEIN?
This is a patented process by Prinova Group that allows the protein to lose that grittyness where it can taste chalky or like dirt. When you smooth out the protein before blending you are creating a better experience for our customers on both taste (flavoring) and texture (how it feels in the mouth).
What is Clean Creme?
This is a patented ingredient from Compound Solutions Inc. and is a series of heart healthy vegetarian creamers. The use and benefit of Clean Creme is that it aids in removing that gritty or grainy texture when added to vegan protein.

Aquamin is a unique marine multi-mineral complex which contains bio-active calcium, magnesium, plus 72 trace minerals which are micronutrients that will benefit the body greatly.
What type of protein do you use?
BEAM uses a blend of mung bean protein, pea protein, and organic pumpkin seed protein. The reason for this is to provide a complete amino acid profile ideal for muscle recovery.

Why is there a proposition 65 warning on the bottle?
Great question. Sometimes, food that grows in the ground can take up trace amounts of heavy metals like Lead, Cadmium, and Arsenic from the soil. And even though these heavy metals are impossible to eliminate–they are naturally occurring in products that grow in the ground– we believe in sourcing the best ingredients available. We are extremely open about all of our products and the tests they go through. If you ever want to see any of our tests, just chat us and it is our pleasure to disclose them!
Why is the bottle half full?
You are not alone with being in shock when you get the “bag of chips” effect with our protein not being full. This is actually one of our favorite things to explain because it speaks to how great our product is.
We choose to use the same 2lbs size tubs as everyone in the industry and also do the same 25 servings that everyone does. We also choose to only put in the best ingredients in this formula so that means NO FILLERS like everyone else. Fillers are additives that give 0 benefit other than making it seem like there is more in the product.
We promise you that there are 25 servings in this container and you are getting the best product out there.
