Protein has gone paleo!

PROTEIN SUPPLIES AUSTRALIA HAVE LAUNCHED A NEW PROTEIN RANGE THAT CATERS TO YOUR PALEO CUSTOMERS.

No Whey! Their new paleo friendly PaleoPro contains natural minerals & vitamins as well as a high biological quality similar to whey proteins, while being completely free of dairy, legumes and grains.

Protein Supplies Australia have single sourced 100% natural egg-white protein to make their PaleoPro. The product delivers a medium rate digestion to give a steady, sustained release of amino acids.

As well as being an ideal choice for anyone following a paleo lifestyle, PaleoPro is also an excellent high protein alternative for customers that are sensitive to lactose or suffer from milk allergies.

PaleoPro is available in three delicious flavours; pure, chocolate (flavoured with certified organic cacao) and vanilla (flavoured with organic Madagascan vanilla bean). So it’s not just ideal for assisting your customers with muscle recovery and repair but is also great as a protein-boosting ingredient in the kitchen.

PaleoPro Recipe 2 Blog Post

The below PaleoPro Bounty Bar recipe is a great one to share with customers, to help introduce them to the range. Just make sure you make a batch or two or three and try them first yourself!

 

PALEOPRO BOUNTY BARS

Serves: 1-5
Prep time: 1-2 hours (including wait time)

INGREDIENTS:
1 Serve Vanilla PaleoPro
1 can Coconut Cream (we used light)
2 Tbsp. Almond Meal
3 Tbsp. Desiccated Coconut (you can use shredded, or a combo if you want)
2 Blocks of Alter Eco Chocolate (Dark Blackout or Dark Velvet work well)

METHOD:
1. In a medium bowl, scoop cream out of can, until you get to the coconut water. Save the water for later!

2. Add all other ingredients but the chocolate and mix together until you get a thick batter (it should look like cookie dough, if it’s too runny just add some
more coconut)

3. Line a brownie tray with glad wrap, and pour the mixture in. Cover and place in the freezer for about 1 hour or until it is set hard.

4. Once the coconut bar mix is hardened, bring a small pot of water to boil and place a bowl on top. Break up the chocolate and slowly melt in the bowl.

5. Slice the hardened mix into bar shaped pieces – as big or as small as you wish.

6. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Once the chocolate is melted, dip the bars into the mix and place onto the tray.

7. Once all bars have been dipped in chocolate, place into the fridge to harden.

8. Gobble them all down before anyone sees you, or if you have self-control don’t do that. Maybe.

Protein Supplies Australia | Think Clean. Eat Natural. Live Healthy.

IT WAS PASSION AND DESIRE THAT SAW MATHEW STILLONE SINK HIS THEN LIFE SAVINGS OF $5000 INTO DEVELOPING A CLEAN, AFFORDABLE, NUTRITIONALLY-RICH RANGE OF SUPPLEMENTS AND SUPERFOODS.

And it was a move that paid off. From humble beginnings in his home garage to a fast-growing range of top-selling products, Founder and Managing Director of Protein Supplies Australia (PSA) Mathew Stillone embodies his brand.

Born into the health industry, he has fond memories of picking veggies on his family’s certified organic farm and spending holidays helping at his parents’ health food store in Northern NSW.

Searching for a natural protein range, Mathew couldn’t find anything without artificial nasties. He took matters into his own hands and PSA was born. His first products Whey Protein Isolate Fast Release and Premium Grade Whey Protein Concentrate were instant hits. For Mathew, passion is everything and he believes it shines through the PSA brand.

“Our brand and products reflect all that we stand for; we actually care, and we practise what we preach. Our consumers work too hard on their training, diet and lifestyle to fuel themselves with synthetic or banned nasties, so we ensure their health and well-being is always at heart.”

Behind the scenes, PSA supports community projects including the I Can I Will Project, devoted to improving the lives of children with special needs through events, motivational talks, group training and nutritional education. PSA also helps fuel some of Australia’s leading athletes.

Mathew is moving towards more sustainable packaging and raw materials, including expanding the range of certified organic products and grass-fed 100 percent Australian whey.
