This plant protein combines the power of cacao and monkfruit

In line with their philosophy of creating functional foods with a nutritious makeover, Gytree's new powerhouse plant protein comprises the tantalising taste of Ghana cacao blended with the natural sweetness of monkfruit. 

But the benefits don't stop at cacao. Pairing it with monkfruit takes these benefits to a whole new level. The real game-changer? Protein.

Monkfruit, known scientifically as Siraitia grosvenorii, brings a potent sweetness without the added calories. This makes it a fantastic choice for folks watching their sugar intake or anyone wanting to enjoy sweet treats guilt-free. Plus, monkfruit doesn't just sweeten—it also adds to the protein-packed punch of the treat!

Boost Your Protein Intake with Monkfruit and Cacao

Along with our base dual plant protein, when these two power-packed ingredients come together, they create a protein-rich health treat that's both delicious and nutritious. Monkfruit, being a natural sweetener, enhances the rich, slightly bitter flavor of cacao, creating an indulgent taste profile that feels like a cheat day without being one. Plus, its antioxidant properties from cacao, coupled with the zero-caloric attribute of monkfruit, amplify the nutritional benefits even further.  

You might be asking, "But how does this combo boost my protein intake?"  

Our plant protein is made with brown rice and golden pea extracts which combine to complete the amino acid profile. Additionally, cacao is a surprisingly robust source of protein. 100 grams of cacao powder can contain up to 20 grams of protein, while monkfruit itself has around 0.5 grams of protein per 100 grams.  

"Protein is vital to feed your muscles, bones, cartilage, skin, and blood. Your body uses protein to build and repair tissues, as well as to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals," says Dr Sudeshna Ray, Medical Director, Gytree. 

Getting enough protein is essential for your health, and combining cacao with monkfruit not only provides a tasty way to add protein to your diet but also brings potential benefits like reduced heart disease risk, better digestion, and controlled blood sugar levels.  

So, are you ready to start your journey towards a healthier, protein-rich diet? Adding this cacao-monkfruit combo to your protein will be an easy step you can take to improve your health while enhancing your culinary pleasure. 

"Our customers love our protein and its only natural that they want new flavours. Having built a delicious, effective protein with carotenoids and superherbs, we wanted to combine the anti oxidant powers of high quality cacao. And that's what makes our Chocolate flavour so special," says Swareena Shaw, Product-Head, Gytree. 

Creating Protein-Packed Recipes 

How to whip up a delicious, protein-packed snack starring monkfruit and cacao, you ask? Easy. These two ingredients blend seamlessly in smoothies, protein bowls, and countless other recipes. You can also use them as baking ingredients, ensuring you get that essential protein supply throughout your meals. Not forgetting the natural sweetness of monkfruit that elevates the flavour, making your protein intake not only necessary but incredibly tasty. 

Brace yourself for a refreshing punch of distinctive flavors that not only cater to your protein needs but also make you drool for more. Jam-packed with protein, you can enjoy this treat any time of the day, from kick-starting your morning to calming your late-night cravings. Remember, the body needs a regular supply of protein to keep those muscles strong and toned.
