Welcome to Purition!

Purition Frequently Asked Questions

Why Purition?

Because Purition is really good for you.  Our whole food blends are made from nutrient-dense nuts and seeds with a bit of whey or plant protein.  That’s it.  Unlike other protein powders or nutrition drinks, there is nothing artificial - no added oils or sugars or flavorings.  Each serving is naturally high in protein and fiber, extremely low in carbs and sugars and gluten free, as well as being packed with healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.  It’s simple really.   We source the finest ingredients and crush, grind and blend them in-house for maximum freshness and quality. Why Purition?  Because you care about what you put in your body.  

Is Purition gluten free?

Yes, all our blends are certified gluten free and celiac safe as well, with less than 5 parts per million (ppm).  For context, the legal definition of gluten free is 20ppm and some suggest a stricter limit of 10ppm to be celiac safe.  No worries, we have ingredients you can trust.   

I am vegan, can I use Purition?

Not quite yet, but soon!  Purition makes a dairy free line which will be available in the US sometime this winter 2017-18.  All our blends use our nut and seed base, but for our dairy free versions we add either hemp alone or pea, rice and hemp.   You can sign up for our wait list here and we will let you know as soon as they are ready.  

The hemp versions have a deeper, more earthy texture and flavor, while our unique blend of pea, rice and hemp is lighter and a bit sweeter.

Our vegan whole food nutrition blends are approved and certified by the Vegan Society.  

Is Purition suitable for vegetarians?

Yes, all of our wholefood nutrition blends are suitable for vegetarians and are a great way to get extra protein into your daily diet.   All our products are approved by the Vegetarian Society.

I’m lactose intolerant, should I buy the dairy free version?

It is not necessary to buy our dairy free blends if you are lactose intolerant.  To put it in context, the average cup of coffee with a splash of milk contains 160mg of lactose. In one serving of Purition there is less than 4mg of lactose - 15 times less than a cup of coffee with milk.  The lactose level in our original blends is so low it will not aggravate IBS or cause bloating.

I'm allergic to yeast, can I still use Purition?

Our blends contain nutritional yeast which is not the same as bakers yeast and does not need to be avoided.  Nutritional yeast is dead and can not be reactivated and is perfectly compatible with a yeast-free diet.

Can Purition be used during pregnancy and while breastfeeding?

Yes!  Purition is made from 100% whole food natural ingredients so it is perfectly safe to drink when are pregnant or breastfeeding.  In fact, Purition is a great way of making sure your own body is fueled with essential nutrients while you deal with the demands of a newborn.  It’s really simple and quick to prepare and can even be made one-handed if need be!  Also - clean up is a breeze - just rinse your blender jug and blade immediately.   A Discovery Box would even make a nice addition to a baby shower basket.

How should I prepare my shake?

Because real food does not dissolve, you should use a blender to make your shake.  For a classic Purition shake:  Simply blend 40g of Purition with one cup of cold milk or nut milk and enjoy.  Blending will create a smooth and creamy shake in seconds. If you like, throw in some berries or greens for additional nutrients.  Or if you want it thicker or colder, add some ice.  Experiment, the possibilities are endless.  

How many scoops should I use?

One serving for women is 4 scoops (40g) and for men it is 5 scoops (50g).  However, ladies, if 40g is not keeping you satisfied until your next meal, use 50g in the next shake.  

Can I make my shake with water?

We don't recommend it. Our blends are 70% nuts and seeds.  Would you want to drink crushed nuts and seeds with water?  Didn’t think so.  Blended with milk?  Yummy.   The natural ingredients in our blends work best when blended with milk or a milk alternative.  And it only takes one minute to prepare.  

How many servings/meals are in each bag?

Each 500g (1.1lb) bag contains 10 x 50g servings or 12 x 40g servings.  If you are having 5-6 shakes a week, one bag is a two-week supply.  Many of our customers will also have half a serving as a snack or add half a serving to yogurt or oatmeal.

When should I drink my shake?

Once blended consume immediately. Your shake will continue to thicken with time. If left for a few hours it will become as thick as creamy oatmeal - you’ll need a spoon thanks to all the fiber.  If you want to make a smoothie bowl, prepare a smoothie with Purition and leave in your refrigerator overnight for a thick satisfying breakfast.

It is best to spread your protein throughout the day starting with breakfast. If you are getting regular portions of protein throughout the day, unless you are an endurance athlete or body builder, there is no reason to consume protein within a certain timeframe around your workouts.  While the edict of eating protein within an hour of exercise may sell more protein powder, it just isn't necessary.  So wait until you get back home or to the office so you can prepare your shake properly and most importantly, enjoy it!

How should I use the shake for the best weight loss results?

Have one shake a day for the first week so your body can adjust to the additional fiber and then if convenient have a shake for both breakfast and lunch, Monday - Friday.  In the evenings have a healthy, balanced home-cooked dinner that includes protein and a lot of vegetables - preferably colorful, leafy vegetables that are grown above ground.  Aim to eat just three meals a day and drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Not only can you lose weight with this method, you can develop healthy eating habits that last a lifetime.

How should I store Purition?

Reseal the bag after use and keep it in a cool, dark place. It is not necessary to keep it in the fridge.  If using everyday, decanting it into a sealed jar or container and keeping it next to your blender is handy!

How is Purition different from other protein shakes?

That’s simple - in two words: REAL FOOD. Junk-free fitness food means your body recognizes every ingredient. No gums, cheap fillers, thickeners, artificial anything or flavorings. Just simple wholesome food ingredients that support your nutrition and fitness goals.  In addition, our blends offer more than just protein.  They also contain natural fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals.  In other words, it’s a protein shake with benefits.  

How is Purition different from other meal replacements?

Again that’s simple:  REAL FOOD. Purition is not a meal replacement or supplement, it’s made with REAL FOOD, so it is a meal in a glass. There is a big difference. Traditional “meal replacements” are made of sugar, artificial sweeteners, water, milk powder, thickeners, artificial flavourings and often chemically synthesized vitamins and minerals. These are industrial concoctions of highly refined ingredients that happen to contain very few calories precisely because they contain no real food.

Purition is not a supplement because it provides all the nutrition you need from whole food ingredients - our nuts and seeds.  It is designed to only ever replace a meal, with a meal (albeit a perfectly balanced one!)  We see Purition as the foundation of a healthy diet - not as a supplement to replace food, but as food to replace supplements!

Can I try your flavors before I buy a full bag?

Absolutely. If you want to try all the flavors to help you find your favorites, we suggest our Discovery Box which contains one serving (40g) of each of our six flavors:  Macadamia and Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate, Almond, Pistachio and Coconut.
