Almased is not just another protein drink or weight-loss shake. It’s an innovative nutritional complex that supports whole-body metabolism. And it all starts with how Almased is crafted.
Made with care and love in Aurora, Illinois, Almased is manufactured at an FDA-registered food facility that is Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) certified by NSF International and dedicated to the highest standards for food safety and quality.
Almased’s ingredients start with soy protein from Bloomington, Illinois using a special extraction process, in addition to raw honey and fresh yogurt. The high-quality soy protein used is Almased is an environmentally friendly, sustainable source of plant protein, with a low carbon footprint compared to animal-based proteins.
In addition, soybeans score higher than beef in a measure of protein quality called the “Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score,” and they have a complete amino acid profile — meaning they have all nine essential amino acids— and they’re a “high biological value” protein source. Plus, soy protein is naturally low in fat and free of both cholesterol and lactose. The U.S. government says that 25 grams of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, can improve heart health. A single serving of Almased supplies 27 grams of soy protein.
In addition to heart health, clinical research on the soy ingredient used in Almased also proves benefits for weight loss and muscle growth, too.
The Yucatan area of Mexico is famous for its Mayan beekeepers and premium- quality honey. In fact, Mayans have been cultivating bees for over 1,000 years. Honey was so important to the Mayans that they had a god of bees and honey.
The special honey varieties in New Zealand are also very rich in nutrients, in addition to being earthier and super-healthy.
It’s no wonder, then, that Almased is made with expensive raw honey from special reserves in Mexico and New Zealand.
Unlike most regular honey, which is heat-treated, the honey in Almased is bursting with vital enzymes and naturally occurring yeast that allow fermentation to continue even after the cans are sealed.
In fact, the honey’s natural ingredients are all still living and active when you open the can.
Cows that graze naturally help aerate the ground with their hooves, fertilize the soil, and even encourage grass growth.
Not only does this mean a better life for the cows, it also integrates these tasks into the natural ecosystem of the farm, which means lower outside energy use, fewer chemical fertilizers, plentiful homegrown feed, healthier soil, and ultra-quality dairy.
This is why Almased sources its milk and yogurt from cows in Ireland and northern Germany, where they live in green pastures.
