Going green doesn’t mean you have to give up on all the food and drink you love. There are plenty of alternatives out there to keep your diet interesting and varied – plus we have loads of tailor-made vegan supplements to support your training.
As it’s Veganuary, we thought we’d give the spotlight to some of the fitness favourites you might not have realised are vegan-friendly too.
1. BCAA Drink
Crack open one of these pre-workout and you’ll be in for a strong start. Our BCAA Drink is packed with 5g of essential branched-chain amino acids which naturally occur in protein, which helps to build and repair new muscle – super-important for your ve-gains.
Our refreshingly fruity drink also delivers a caffeine hit, which helps to increase endurance and improve concentration, alongside fatigue-busting vitamins B6 and B12.
With no animal products, and zero sugar or carbs – it’s the ideal training fuel.
Created for instant energy, this fuelling1 formula combines maltodextrin and fructose with an electrolyte and vitamin blend for an all-in-one energy gel — helping you get the most from your body.
Batch tested by Informed-Sport, our Energy Gel Elite has been tested for naturally occurring banned substances by LGC's world-class sports lab in line with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) guidelines, and is officially safe for professional athletes of all levels.
After making the clear whey protein, we knew we had to make it vegan-friendly too. If you're looking for a light, fruity alternative to your usual creamy protein shake, clear protein is the perfect alternative.
Choose from lemon & lime, apple & elderflower, pineapple & grapefruit, or simply strawberry to get your boost of 10g of protein at just 56 calories per serving. Our clear protein is the perfect macro and vegan-friendly to refresh you on an afternoon.
Now, we know that peanut butter is probably a cupboard classic that you’re possibly, ever-so-slightly, heavily dependent on. But is it vegan? It might surprise you to know that the answer to that isn’t always a straight up yes.
What’s important is that you can rest assured that our All-Natural Peanut Butter in original smooth or crunchy is totally, 100% vegan-friendly – and has a 30% protein content, which is great news for your macros. Spread, or spoon, away!
Creatine is a must-have for anyone serious about their performance in the gym, on the pitch, or at the track.
It’s scientifically proven to increase physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high-intensity exercise – no workout should be without.
As most natural sources of creatine are animal products such as red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy, it can be especially important for those following a plant-based diet to find a supplement to help them increase their intake.
Our Creatine Monohydrate is completely vegan-friendly and super-convenient to make part of your fitness routine – just add a scoop to your usual shakes or smoothies.
6. FlavdropsOur Flavdrops don't just give deliciousness to our meat-eating friends, they're 100% vegan too.Choose from 15 flavours including Toffee, White Chocolate, and Vanilla, to spice up your foods with flavour, without the extra calories.No sugar, no carbohydrates, no fat, and no animal products. Just completely plant based flavour to enhance your favourite meals.
Our Powdered Oats are milled oats in an ultra-fine powder, making breakfast time super-simple and nutritious.
A blend of carbs and protein help fuel2 your body and maximise recovery1,2 — essential whatever your fitness goals.
