PRODUCT FAQ's

Put simply, Bodyhero products are a meticulously designed range of 100% natural, clean label, plant based high protein, high fibre and low sugar products. What also separates Bodyhero from other plant based protein products is not only its attention to taste, but also the carefully curated blend of Bodyhero ingredients that make it so pure.

Our Vision is to “BELIEVE IN YOU”. Doing things right by yourself means taking a holistic approach to your physical, mental, emotional, environmental and spiritual wellbeing. Here at Bodyhero we subscribe to the power of self belief. Our dedication to creating products that are sustainable, ethical, convenient and that taste so good is all part of our respect agenda. We believe anything is possible when you believe in yourself. 

Our Mission was simple: “Create the best plant protein products that tastes so good.” We created Bodyhero to be all natural, High in Fibre, Low in Sugar, High in Protein, and crucially, to taste amazing. 

The Bodyhero range uses only a handful of the highest quality, non-GMO, allergen free, and responsibly sourced ingredients from around the world. 

Our products deliver everything you need, include nothing you don’t, and with zero compromise on taste. 

Absolutely. Our range is made from 100% plant based ingredients, contains no animal products, and is registered by The Vegan Society. 

Yes, all Bodyhero products have been formulated to be both Wheat and Gluten Free. 

Yes, all of the ingredients in Bodyhero have been carefully selected to be Non GM.

No. Whilst there is some conflicting information out there about the potential health risks associated with too much soy, we don’t believe the evidence necessarily shows that soy is unsafe at this time. However, we also understand that some people may still be concerned about products that include soy or may be allergic or intolerant to soy. Secondly, soy products can often be genetically modified, and thirdly we’re concerned about Biodiversity and the impact that global soy production has on our natural ecosystems. Next to beef, soy is the second largest agricultural driver of deforestation worldwide, and therefore we have purposefully chosen not to include soy as an ingredient in our range. Some of our products may still be produced in facilities that handle soy however. 

In contrast, yellow split peas as used in our products have a very low environmental impact for several reasons. First, because the roots of the pea plant do not extend deep into the soil, peas use (on average) one tenth of the water of many other protein sources. Secondly, peas and other legumes enrich soil, rather than deplete it, through the process of nitrogen fixation, reducing the need for nitrogen-based fertilizers. By reducing the use of fertilizers, the CO2 emission from pea production is dramatically lower than animal proteins, meaning a lower carbon footprint. Lastly peas can be grown closer to home reducing carbon footprint. Our pea protein, for example, is sustainably grown in Europe. 

Not at the moment for a few reasons. Firstly, cost as organic ingredients are much more expensive which means it’s more difficult to keep our range as affordable as possible, so everyone can enjoy them. Secondly there are less organic ingredients available, and typically they are less refined, making it more difficult to achieve the same levels of taste and texture, and thirdly all of our ingredients are sustainably sourced, and every single batch we produce is quality assurance tested as part of the Informed Sport programme, assuring the highest quality of ingredients with no banned substances in any batches of any product we sell. Furthermore, each product we produce is third party tested for heavy metals and contaminants, and allergenic substances as part our commitment to ensuring the highest levels of safety and quality. We go to great lengths to ensure the very highest quality, safest and sustainable ingredients. 

As a general rule, the recommended daily calorie intake is 2,000 calories a day for women and 2,500 for men. The number of calories per serving of Bodyhero products ranges from 126 calories per 32g powder serving, 133 calories per 32g protein bar bite (2 x 32g bites per bar), and 151 calories per 330ml Ready-To-Drink shake serving, meaning one serving of Bodyhero accounts for just 5-7% of your daily calorie allowance, and making Bodyhero products a healthy sweet treat that won’t blow your macros in one go. 

The proteins used in our products are sourced from the very best growing regions in the world, and are selected specifically for each product type, as different proteins perform differently in different types of product. 

The Pea Protein in our bars is made from the highest quality 100% Non-GMO Canadian Yellow Split Peas. 

The Pea Protein in our Ready-to-Drink shakes is a super smooth Pea Protein Isolate developed for optimal taste and texture. The pea protein is made from the highest quality 100% Non-GMO European Yellow Split Peas. 

The Pea Protein in our protein powder is sourced from what is considered to be the very best growing region in the world – Europe. It contains almost 90% protein and is made from 100% non-GMO European grown Golden Peas. It is allergen free, ultra smooth in texture, and extremely easy to digest with a digestibility rating of 98%. 

Bodyhero Protein powder uses the highest quality European Golden Peas grown under strict European regulations in the nutrient rich soils of Northern France. They are grown without chemicals in uncontaminated soil which is rich in nutrients, and are processed in Belgium by one of the pioneers in pea protein isolation, a company that has been privately run by the same family since 1852. 

As a result the pea protein we use is widely accepted to be the highest quality pea protein isolate available worldwide. Growers are carefully selected and quality checks are in place throughout the entire supply chain to ensure the strictest of growing standards are adhered to. 

The protein isolation process uses a patented, water-based technology that produces a very fine powder that has very little taste or smell of pea; which indicates a very high-quality pea protein isolate. Many other lower quality pea proteins have a strong pea smell or taste by comparison. 

As a result Bodyhero powder is totally allergen free, and the pea protein we use is in fact is the only pea protein isolate that can claim a lectin-free status which contributes to its excellent digestive properties, and makes Bodyhero powder the most easily digestible and accessible protein powder on the market. 

The patented processing method produces a pea protein with the highest level of protein content in the world, at up to 90% protein (by dry matter). It also produces a very fine powder compared to other pea protein manufacturers, making Bodyhero powders super easy to mix and superior to taste. 

Absolutely. Our production facilities meet the ISO, SALSA & BRC Grade 'AA' Standard for production process and safety. This means: 

Regular checks on our process, filling and production facilities 
Regulated Packaging 
Zero contamination 
Highest Gradings for Hygiene and Food Safety 

We use only the minimal amount of natural sweeteners in our products to ensure the right flavour balance. Our shakes are sweetened only with a hint of dates and stevia leaf. Our bars have a small amount of Finnish Birch Xylitol (a natural sweetener derived from Finnish Birch trees) purely in the dark chocolate coating and nothing else, and our powders are sweetened with a hint of dates and stevia leaf (the sweet taste in Stevia products comes from the leaves of this South American plant Stevia Rebaudiana (Asteraceae)). Stevia is 200 times sweeter than sugar, so we only need to use a very small amount of it too – that’s why it’s low down on the ingredient list. 

No, but each 32g serving delivers 21g of high-quality Golden Pea Protein, providing a full spectrum of all 9 Essential Amino Acids and naturally occurring BCAA’s to aid with optimal muscle growth and recovery. Each serving contains 8g of essential amino acids, 4g of BCAAs, 4g of Glutamine, and 2g of Leucine, which is well established to be the rock star of amino acids when it comes to building muscle! Our shakes and bars are also packed with naturally occurring EAA’s & BCAAs.

All Bodyhero products are produced with a maximum of 12 months shelf life. The best before date is shown on each product. 

No, all Bodyhero products can be stored at room temperature (away from sunlight). Our Ready to Drink shake and Powder are best served chilled or with ice.

Our Bodyhero ready-to-drink shakes and powders have a pH level above 7 making them naturally slightly alkaline. The golden pea protein used in our powders is the only alkaline pea protein in the world with a pH level of 7.8. Ideal if you are considering following an alkaline diet. 

Yes. We believe in doing our bit for the health of our planet.

USING BODYHERO

Bodyhero works extremely well as part of a calorie controlled diet to ensure you get enough protein and fibre, and limited excess sugar in your diet. If your goal is to lose weight (or body fat) then an easy way to approach it is simply to ensure you consume less than 500 calories than your body needs each day and you’ll lose 1lb of fat per week. Remember that not all calories are equal though, so be sure to eat a varied and balanced diet, with Bodyhero supplementing your dietary intake. Why not sign up to a monthly subscription to receive your comprehensive body transformation programme which will explain everything you ever need to know to safely change your body shape or weight. 

No. Bodyhero is designed to supplement a healthy balanced diet. We would always recommend that you get the majority of your calories from freshly prepared, nutritionally balanced meals, where possible using whole foods. Bodyhero is a great way to make it easier to hit your nutrition goals in addition to your normal diet. Meal replacement shakes — as the name implies — are meant to replace a full meal. As a result, they contain a balance of fat, carbs, protein and other micronutrients, such as digestive enzymes, prebiotic fibres and probiotics. There’s nothing wrong with meal replacement products. However, if you’re counting macros and you only want to increase your protein intake in the main — but not your fat or carb intake — it’s better to stick with high protein products instead. 

Bodyhero products are the perfect, convenient and delicious pick me up snack or post workout recovery fuel. Formulated with high quality Plant-Based Protein from Golden / Yellow Split Peas providing a complete protein source, and high quality Plant-Based Fibre from Chicory Root, they keep you fuller for longer, and if you’re an avid exerciser, will aid in muscle recovery to help you meet your goals faster. 

Use anytime, anywhere. We call it guilt-free convenient nutrition.

Bodyhero Bars – enjoy as part of a healthy balanced diet. Try half a bar as a quick snack or a full bar post workout. We don’t recommend consuming more than 3 Bodyhero bars per day. 

Bodyhero Shakes – enjoy as part of a healthy balanced diet. We don’t recommend consuming more than 3 Bodyhero shakes per day. 

Bodyhero Powders – enjoy as part of a healthy balanced diet. We don’t recommend consuming more than 3 Bodyhero servings per day. 

Absolutely! Bodyhero products are specifically formulated to provide the highest levels of plant based protein whilst maintaining unbeatable taste and texture. Each serving across the range delivers 20g of high quality plant protein. With the recommended daily intake of protein ranging from approximately 0.8–1.5g per kg bodyweight depending on your activity levels, a 70kg sedentary person would need approximately 56g and a 70kg active person would need 105g of protein per day. One Bodyhero serving therefore delivers between 19-36% of your daily protein intake. The products are made with premium quality pea protein isolate, providing a complete protein with full spectrum of all 9 Essential Amino Acids and naturally occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids to aid with optimal muscle growth and recovery.

It sure does! Bodyhero has been specifically formulated to provide high levels of natural easy to digest, soluble plant based fibre from Chicory Root, to help meet those all-important high fibre goals, and support gut health. With the recommended daily intake of fibre around 30g for most people, one scoop of powder provides 8% of your daily allowance, one ready to drink shake provides 17% of your daily allowance, and one bar 44%. Coupled with satiating high protein levels, Bodyhero will keep for fuller for longer. 

Bodyhero has not been formulated as a Keto specific product as we wanted to make it accessible to everyone, but if you are following a Keto diet this means you are eating a high fat, low carb and moderate amount of protein diet. Bodyhero powder is low carb at less than 4g per serving, so you could make it Keto friendly by adding a source of good fats such as desiccated coconut, MCT Oil or nut butter. 

Yes and you can check out some recipes here (link to recipes section), however in order to preserve the optimal nutritional value in Bodyhero powder we advise you try using it in raw (no bake) recipes.

Yes, all of our products are certified with Informed Sport. The Informed Sport programme provides assurance that products have been tested for a wide range of substances prohibited in sport. 

Every batch of this product is tested for banned substances under the Informed Sport programme. Products undergo rigorous testing using ISO 17025 accredited methods to provide the highest level of assurance for athletes. For further information about the testing process, please visit informed-sport.com. 

Additionally, all of our ingredients are carefully and sustainably sourced, tested at source, and we regularly screen our production batches for heavy metals and contaminants as part of our commitment to ensuring the highest levels of safety and quality on the market. We go to great lengths and invest heavily to ensure the absolute highest quality and quality products. 

How to use 

Neat: Add 1 scoop or 2 heaped tablespoons (or 1 sachet) to 300ml of water or plant-based milk. Shake gently. Vigorous shaking may create a foamy shake. 

Breakfast: Blend 1 scoop or 2 heaped tablespoons with your favourite smoothie recipe (try banana, frozen blueberries, peanut butter & plant milk) 

After exercise: Either of the above. Try adding some gluten free oats to boost your carb replenishment. 

For Keto: Try adding a source of good fats such as desiccated coconut, MCT Oil or nut butter. 

The amount and type of water or plant milk you add will affect sweetness and thickness. Best served cold or with ice. Note too vigorous shaking may result in a frothy shake. Bodyhero mixes really easily so there’s no need to overly shake it. Vigorous shaking may result in foaming – this is perfectly normal and simply demonstrates the purity of our pea protein isolate having absolutely no fillers or anti-foaming agents added. 

Bodyhero is a high fibre product. Most people are not used to consuming enough fibre in their diet, and as a result can experience some intestinal gas/discomfort when they start to consume a high amount of fibre in one sitting. Many people moving to a plant based diet experience this as their body gets used to consuming more foods rich in gut healthy fibre This is absolutely normal. Your body may need some time to adjust to ingesting more fibre. Our bars are particularly high in fibre, so if you experience this try half a bar to start with.
