[UK] New vegan brand Plantsy has launched a line of algae protein beverages in the UK, available in two flavours: rhubarb and ginger, and blood orange and grapefruit.
The brand, which was founded earlier this year, is aiming to offer less conventional protein drinks that have a range of health benefits.
According to Plantsy, algae is “a perfect source of plant protein as it contains all of the essential amino acids that we need for building and maintaining muscle mass”.
Each drink has 15g of protein, is non-GMO and is said to be rich in dietary fibre, healthy lipids, vitamins and minerals. The range is free from gluten, soy, dairy and artificial sweeteners.
Plantsy founder Anya Prudkova said: “As a person who has always been into sports and healthy lifestyle choices, I decided to integrate a plant-based diet into my life and learn more about nutrition and wellness. I started my degree in nutrition after I realised how passionate I am about plant-based alternatives.
“I want to empower and inspire people to be stronger and healthier using creative and nutritious vegan products designed to benefit an active lifestyle. My purpose is to make healthy simple and convenient.”
Each Plantsy beverage is now available in the UK with a recommended retail price of £2.99.
