Added Protein

In addition to the free-form amino acids in the Base Nutritional Formula, ElementGold Plus+ has added protein to approach the maximum amount of protein that can be absorbed from one meal.

The protein added to ElementGold Plus+ is Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) which has been extracted using the Ion-Exchange method. This premium form of WPI is the best method available for maximising extraction of pure protein whilst leaving behind fat, lactose, casein and mineral traces. The effectiveness of the Ion-Exchange method is such that you would need to consume over 290 x 325ml glasses of ElementGold Plus+ to consume the same amount of lactose as you would consumet in a 325ml glass of regular milk.

Sweetener and Flavourings

Although some sugars are naturally present in ingredients such as maltodextrin, no sweetener is added to ElementGold Plus+ Unsweetened Vanilla. The reason for this is to allow for a choice of appropriate sweetener and level of sweetness (or adding no sweetener). In certain situations, Low FODMAP diets and SIBO for example, some sweeteners will NOT be suitable so check with your healthcare professional to ensure you are not compromising your digestive system. In most cases stevia is a suitable sweetener.

Flavourings and colourings used in ElementGold are all naturally derived.
