Ingredients

What is in Powder Matter?

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.

Gluten-free?

Yes. All Powder Matter products we have produced until now are gluten free. 

The original version that contains oat meal and soy flour is certified gluten free.

The vegan version contains buckwheat meal, almond meal and linseed meal. These ingredients contain no  gluten.

Vegan?

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.

Allergens?

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. 

What is the deal with added sugar?

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… 

Omega 3 fatty acids

Please see the specifications of our recipes here.

Detailed information about the included fats can be found  here for the Original products and here for the Vegan products.

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
