Besides building and maintaining healthy muscles, protein is
needed to synthesize hormones and neuro-transmitters. Therefore,
everyone can benefit from a quick supplement of high-quality
protein in shake form. However, if you are a vegan, you can use
this powder even more liberally in addition to your shakes or
smoothies. You can sprinkle it on your food to supplement for the
essential protein you may be missing from your diet. This Vegan
protein Powder also provides high amounts of dietary fiber needed
to help lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, and provide
healthy intestinal flora and bowel movements. It is also a good
source of Potassium balanced with low sodium. Our Vegan Protein
Powder is also rich in easy-to-absorb minerals and vitamins –
especially iron, calcium and folate.
Our Vegan Protein Powder primarily contains dry-roasted
and pulverized kala chana (black chickpeas - although the
resulting powder is off-white). In India, kala chana is a
high-protein ingredient used in many delicious recipes. The
laboring class in India is said to subsist on kala chana as their
primary source of daily protein, especially in the north eastern
states of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and the Punjab as well.
Kala Chana is a variation of the commonly known larger variety
of chickpea. Kala chana is smaller and dark in color, is high in
protein and low in fat. These Chickpeas have a very low glycemic
index and are a great source of protein for vegetarians who have
sugar intolerance, or are diabetic.
To make Vegan Protein Powder, Vaidya Mishra uses only black
chickpeas and roasts them in the sand – according to the
traditional method. After roasting, they sieve away the sand. Then
they also remove the tough husk of the chickpeas, which can
irritate the digestive track when consumed. Then they grind the
sand-roasted kala chana down to a fine powder. Roasting it this way
makes the otherwise heavy chana light and easy to digest. This
processing also keeps all the components of the raw food intact
with no loss of any nutrient. The shelf-life of the roasted
chickpeas is increased as well. SVAyurveda Vegan Protein Powder is
not only tri-doshic (suitable for all body-types) but is also soy
and gluten-free. SVAyurveda have also added organically grown plant
mucilage from carob source. This mucilage is an excellent
Directions: For a Shake, mix approximately 4 tablespoons
in 8oz of lukewarm water, add lime juice, grated ginger and chilies
(optional) and a pinch of Soma Salt to taste. For a creamier taste, use
Almond or Cashew milk instead of water (but then don't add the
lime). Vegan Protein Powder is also suitable for creating a Hummus
alternative, Vegan Pancakes and many other dishes where you would
use a Protein Powder.

The problem with soy: While it is true that soy beans
provide a rich source of amino acids, it is equally true that all
that glitters is not gold! At SVAyurveda we know to look beyond the
label to see a food’s ultimate effect on the body types, tissues,
physical channels, and vibrational channels. Soy is a major
‘channel blocker,’ consumption of which is suitable only by those
doing hard physical labor day in day out – not at all suitable for
the diet of the office or professional worker. Soy is also highly
estrogenic and can promote many disturbances in the female
physiology. To avoid such problems and to keep your channels open,
steer clear of soy-based protein supplements.
The problem with green peas: Peas and pea-based protein
powders are first-class channel blockers, even more so than soy.
They will slow down your overall metabolic system, promote the
production of toxins, and long-term use may cause many unwanted
imbalances. For those who already experience joint pain or joint
related conditions, they should avoid them by all means.
Whey or No Way? Whey protein is a mixture of globular
proteins isolated from whey, the liquid material created as a
by-product of cheese production. Not only is it clogging to the
body's channels, whey is very acidic. We know that our physiology
needs good pH to be healthy. Eating whey provides protein but it
will also unnecessarily introduce more acidity into the physiology.
Plus, as a protein isolate, whey has lost the intelligence
originally found in its milk source and has become a ‘dumb’
protein. Dumb foods (less prana) are hard to digest and likely to
