FUEL10K's resident nutritional research scientist, has used her expertise to take a closer look at the ingredients and has written a review of how The Complete Meal can benefit you.
"Here at FUEL10K we acknowledge the need for healthy, nutritious and convenient meals to meet with our demanding and fast paced lives. Modern foods can often lose nutritional value due to lack of preparation or planning. This often results in foods high in carbs and fats, leading to potential deficiencies in essential vitamins and minerals. These deficiencies can lead to health issues as well as general feelings of lethargy, irritability and a decrease in effective bodily functions such as digestion and immune systems.
This is the reason for why we have developed The Complete Meal. To provide all of your macro and micronutrient needs in one tasty and convenient shake. The Complete Meal is a nutrient rich, protein packed powder that provides a cost-effective solution to our increasingly busy lives whilst supporting gut health and lean muscle tissue.
FUEL10K’s ‘The Complete Meal’ comes in three delicious flavours: Strawberry & Banana, Chocolate and Vegan Vanilla, these can be mixed with water, milk or any milk alternative to #FuelYourJourney "
FUEL10K’s The Complete Meal is packed with a delicious protein blend. This blend has been expertly designed to ensure a full protein delivery comprising all 21 essential amino acids in a time phase delivery. This ensures that all enzyme activity, muscle function and protein synthesis can occur and be carried out to its full potential. Plant proteins have often been criticised for not offering a complete protein delivery as they frequently do not contain enough of one or more of the 21 essential amino acids for our bodies to gain the full benefit. This however is not the case with our Vegan Vanilla recipe. The carefully considered protein blend ensures a complete amino acid profile resulting in a great tasting, highly nutritious vegan powder. This supports the body's functionality.
Gut health has never been more important, and The Complete Meal helps to support this. It does so by having a range of fibre sources that helps control the release of energy from carbohydrate and proteins. Recent evidence shows that there is a connection between the gut and the brain, known as the gut-brain axis. To understand gut health, it is vital to know that a healthy gut is made up of a certain ratio of 'good' to 'bad' bacteria. In order to upkeep this ratio, a recommended intake of 30g of fibre should be incorporated into the diet everyday. The Complete Meal helps you reach this amount, each serving has more than 8g of fibre and provides both soluble and insoluble fibres. Oats are a source of soluble fibre that is used in The Complete Meal, they help reduce risk of digestive disease, reduce levels of bad cholesterol and maximise the health of your heart.
Fats perform many essential roles within our bodies such as supporting cell health, improving cognition and even protecting our neurons. But too much of the wrong kind of fats can be very detrimental to health leading to increased cholesterol and an increased risk of coronary heart disease. The Complete Meal has a higher proportion of omega-3 fatty acids compared to saturated fats meaning the fats in our product support cognitive function and cell health. Modern diets can make consuming too much of the wrong type of fat very easy and risk raising cholesterol. Due to the carefully considered ingredient profile, the desired fat ratio is achieved to provide protection and maintenance.
The inclusion of 100% of nutrient reference values for 14 essential vitamins and minerals works wonderfully in tandem with the complete protein delivery, enabling support with digestive health, cognitive function and the optimal health of consumers.
All of these factors pull together to create a shake which comes in at around 400 calories when made with water, providing an excellent start to the day or perhaps a handy top up post workout.
