Orgain rolls out plant-based sport powders


Orgain has a brand-new collection of offerings for consumers.

The Irvine, Calif.-based brand is rolling out its new Organic Sport Line, which contains plant-based powders that have been crafted from high quality, food-based and anti-inflammatory ingredients, the company said.

Featuring such ingredients as organic beets, apple cider vinegar, tart cherry powder, fermented turmeric and ginger, the line was created to support those with active lifestyles.

“I noticed varied product offerings within the sports nutrition market and knew we could design a more elevated option with unique ingredients that would provide a clean way to aid performance,” Orgain founder and CEO, Andrew Abraham said. “We began working with ingredients that were less common in sports performance products. This line incorporates intentionally selected organic ingredients such as apple cider vinegar, beets, and cordyceps mushrooms to support workout performance and recovery. We've also designed our energy and recovery powders so they can be enjoyed for all-day energy and replenishment – perfect for professional and everyday athletes alike. Orgain's Organic Sports Line is like nothing before seen on the market.”

Products in the line include:

  • Sport Protein Powder, which is a plant-based powder that aims to aid in performance and recovery. It features such ingredients as tart cherry powder and turmeric powder, and 5 g of BCAAs to support muscle growth and reduce soreness;
  • Sport Energy Powder, which includes beets, 80 mg of caffeine, vitamin C from amla fruit, ginseng, and cordyceps mushrooms to help aid natural energy and boost vitality, as well as support endurance and physical performance; and
  • Sport Recovery Powder, which is a lemonade ideal for a post-workout treat or for all-day replenishment. It contains apple cider vinegar to help replenish electrolytes, amla fruit for vitamin C, turmeric and ginger to reduce inflammation and a blend of reishi mushrooms and ashwagandha to reduce stress.

All three of Orgain’s new launches are free of gluten and soy, vegan, and made without the use of artificial sweeteners, colors and flavors.

Orgain’s Organic Sport Protein Powder and Sport Recovery Powder are currently available at Whole Foods Market. The Sport Energy Powder will hit shelves in June, and the entire line will be available on Amazon and Sprouts beginning in July.
