Our plant based vegan protein is a unique blend of North American-sourced sunflower, pea and pumpkin protein, delivering a complete amino acid profile. This is important, as your body needs 20 different amino acids to form a protein. Nine of these 20 are not produced by your body and must be consumed, and you can find them in our Plant Based Vegan Wellness Powder

Kura’s certified organic, non-GMO pea protein is extracted using only water and a mechanical process to remove most of the starch and fiber content, leaving the concentrated, chemical-free, plant protein powder behind.  No solvents are ever used! Our North American-grown peas have the most complete amino acid profile and the lowest sodium content of any pea protein in the market. 

Kura’s gluten-free, non-GMO pumpkin protein is rich in dietary-indispensable amino acids, including the desirable branched chain amino acids that are important for muscle growth and muscle recovery. In addition to high protein content, our North American-sourced pumpkin protein is extracted carefully ensuring nutrients are protected from light, heat and harmful oxidation. 

Kura's certified organic, non-GMO sunflower protein is sourced from  carefully processed sunflower seeds  to concentrate the valuable protein. It contains essential amino acids, b-vitamins, valuable polyphenols and is rich in fiber. Like our pea & pumpkin protein, we extract our sunflower protein without the use of chemicals or solvents. Using a special cold pressing process, the peeled organic sunflower seeds are finely ground and CO2-extracted to reduce the amount of fat and increase protein content.
