Can Purition be used during Pregnancy and Breastfeeding?
Yes, Purition is made from 100% wholefood natural ingredients so is perfectly safe if you’re an expectant mother 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 so even if you’re too tired to stand in the kitchen and cook a meal you can prepare a Purition shake in less than 30 seconds (and one handed if need be!).
Is Purition Lactose Free?
The Original Purition is made with some whey protein isolate – which is super low in lactose.
To put it in context for you, the average cup of tea with just a splash of milk will contain 160mg of lactose, there is less than 4mg of lactose in a serving of Original Purition. That’s 15 times less lactose than you’d find in a cup of tea with a splash of milk! So it should not aggravate IBS or cause bloating.
Our Dairy Free options are 100% plant based and are completely lactose free.
Is Purition Gluten Free?
Yes all blends are certified gluten free and celiac safe at less than 5 ppm.
Where can I buy Purition?
Directly from us, the producers! Via our secure website, with fast shipping for all orders.
You can also find us in real life shops such as Planet Organic, Whole Foods Market, As Nature Intended, Boots and many more independent stores, gyms, fitness studios, and coffee shops across the country.
How many scoops should I use?
Generally we say 4 scoops (40g or 1/3 cup) for women and 5 scoops (50g or 1/2 cup) for men. However ladies if 40g is not keeping you satisfied until your next meal use 50g.
Can I make my shake with water?
To be honest we don’t think this is the best way to make or to enjoy your Purition shake. The natural ingredients contained in our blends work far better with milk or your favorite milk alternative.
To enjoy Purition at its best: Blend 40g (1/3 cup) of Purition with 200ml (1 cup) cold milk/ nut milk and drink straight away.
How should I prepare my shake? Should I use a shaker or blender?
We recommend preparing Purition in a blender. Real food does not dissolve, so we say blend it for best results. Blending will create a thick, smooth, creamy shake in seconds and is a great opportunity to throw in some berries or greens for even more nutrients.
To enjoy Purition at its best: Blend 40g (1/3 cup) Purition with 200ml (1 cup) cold milk/ nut milk and drink straight away.
When should I drink my shake?
Once blended consume immediately, your shake will continue to thicken. If left for a few hours it will become porridge like and you’ll need a spoon thanks to all the fiber.
Results are about consistently great nutrition, not some magic window before or after exercise. Great nutrition is about what gets eaten in a 24 hour period. If you plan on using before exercise you’ll want to consume it at least 1-2 hours before exercise. If you’re going to consume it after exercise wait until you get back home or to the office so you can prepare it properly and, most importantly, enjoy.
How many servings are in each bag?
That depends, each 500g/1.1lb bag contains 10 x 50g (1/2 cup) servings or 12 x 40g (1/3 cup) servings, if using once a day, 5-6 times a week, that’s enough for two weeks. Many of our customers will add a half serving to non-sweetened, full-fat Greek or natural yogurt, oatmeal, or even their regular green smoothies.
How should I store Purition?
Reseal the bag after use and keep it in a cool, dark cupboard. You don’t need to keep it in the fridge. Pouring it into a sealed jar or container, and keeping it next to your blender is handy for easy access if using it everyday!
Can I try your flavors before I buy a full bag?
Absolutely, if you’d like to try before you buy we recommend the Discovery Box – This contains one serving of each blend (6 in total: With Cocoa, Coconut, Coffee and Walnut, Macadamia and Vanilla, Pistachio, Strawberry) or 6 servings of Dairy Free Vegan blends (Raw Vegan Hemp, Hemp with Chocolate, Coffee and Walnut, Strawberry, Blackcurrant, and Vanilla).
Each serving is one meal so you can really get a feel for what our Wholefood Nutrition shakes are all about!
How is Purition different from other protein shakes on the market?
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 “clean eating” and fitness goals.
How is Purition different from other meal replacement products on the market?
Again that’s simple, in two words: REAL FOOD. Purition is not a meal replacement or supplement, it’s made with REAL FOOD – a meal in a glass. There is a BIG difference. Traditional “meal replacements” are made of sugar, artificial sweeteners, water, milk powder, thickeners, artificial flavorings and often chemically synthesized vitamins and minerals. They are industrial concoctions of highly refined ingredients that happen to contain very few calories precisely because they contain no real food.
Purition will never be a supplement, because it provides all the nutrition you need from real food ingredients (seeds & nuts) and is designed to 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 a food to replace supplements.
How should I use the shake for best weight loss results?
Have one shake a day for the first week (breakfast is good) so your body can adjust to the high fiber. 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 as many vegetables – preferably colorful, leafy vegetables that are grown above ground – that you can manage. 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.
