Powder Matter is a company that produces nutritionally complete, energetically balanced meal replacements for convenience.
The first type of product are the meal-shakes which have an original and a vegan variant. The second type of meals is a meal bar.
Powder Matter is food. The purpose of it is to supply a person with a healthy and whole meal, either drinkable (as a meal-shake) or as an edible bar-meal.
Powder Matter is not a supplement nor an additive.
However this does not mean it can’t be used as a meal-replacement to diet on. But also as a mass gainer to gain weight in a healthy manner. Please see our blog post on how to.
We ship to all over the world.
Please see our post on Shipping & Shipping Costs for details on how and what.

Our mission? Somewhere early in our lives we choose to improve the life and eating habits of others.
By bringing a product we believe is much healthier than the food we see around us, hoping it will bring at least some kind of improvement to the food people consume around us.
Another aspect that is motivating when producing a product like Powder Matter is the fact that we know we bring a nutritionally complete meal on the market that is also affordable.
Powder Matter contains all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
Every bag contains powder that consists of the following: oatmeal, soy flour, maltodextrin, whey protein concentrate, vitamin-mineral-powder-mix, product specific aroma and sucralose.
Please see our Recipe page for further details on ingredients.
Our original meal shake contains Whey Protein Concentrate which is a byproduct of cheese production. So it is vegetarian.
Our Vegan meal shake is 100% vegan. See this blog article for details.
Soy is a potential allergen that is in both our Meal Shakes. Our Meal bar is soy free.
Our Original Meal Shake and our Meal Bar contain Whey, thus Lactose which is an allergen. Our Vegan Meal Shake is Lactose free.
The vegan mix contains Almond meal which is a nut.
The sugar noted in the Nutrition Facts are simple carbohydrates that come from the ingredients we include.
We do not add any sugar in our products. Neither do we add sugar and disguise it under a glorified name like: cane-syrup or apple-syrup, natural-honey…
Please see the specifications of our recipes here.
However, here are the details:
Original products contain 405 milligram of long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids per 100 mg. this amount mainly comes from the gluten free soy flour. This complies with the guideline from the European Food Safety Authority which advices a daily intake of 250 mg Omega 3 fatty acids. Even though the EFSA advices according to the latest up to date evidence based data, there are suggestions (no evidence!) that a high omega 3 to omega 6 ratio in food, will be better for a human. So actually the level of omega 6 in our Original product is relatively high. It is advisable to consume omega 3 rich foods (like fish, linseed, chia seeds) when you use Powder Matter original as a main source of ood.
Vegan products contain 1100 mg Omega 3 fatty acids (mainly from the linseed meal) and 2000 mg Omega 6 fatty acids (mainly from almond) per 100 mg.
