Protes Reasserts Itself as Best-Tasting Protein Chip, Launches New Protein Popcorn Flavor

Protes

After launching their Protein Popcorn in 2018, what’s Protes up to for 2019? Quite a bit!

In 2018, we were fortunate enough to meet Krik Angacian, the founder of Protes, who launched Protes Protein Popcorn, to this day one of the most impressive high-protein food innovations we’ve ever seen.

Things went quiet from a public perspective, but Krik and crew were most certainly not taking it easy. We received an email from Krik with the latest and greatest from Team Protes, highlighting three major points:

  1. Protes Vegan Protein Chips have been reformulated

    For the past 11+ months I’ve personally been doing R&D with manufacturing facilities on making the best tasting protein chip on the market. After all that time and countless trials, we’re finally launching the result of all those trials.

    — Krik Angacian, Protes Co-Founder and CEO

    Let’s break down the differences:

    Protes Vegan Protein Chips New Formula and Label

    New formula, new label, and a new bag – Protes has been busy!

    • The original chips had a pea protein isolate base combined with potato flakes, sunflower oil, and then some other ingredients like guar gum and seasoning.
    • The new chips still use pea protein isolate, but the potato flakes have been replaced with whole ground corn and there’s no more guar gum.

    What we like is that corn typically has a lower glycemic index than potatoes, but this does introduce an additional carbohydrate (looking at the zesty nacho flavor), so it can probably be considered a wash from a health impact standpoint. However, now they’ll taste even more like corn chips — yet with 15g complete protein so that your body stays satiated longer!

    The chips are available in Zesty Nacho, Tangy Southern BBQ, and Spicy Chili Lime.

    Note that in the price comparisons above, some stores will have the old formula (with potato flakes) throughout the beginning of 2019 until stock is sold out. Use the link to buy directly from EatProtes.com if you’re not sure.

  2. Protes Protein Popcorn Light Butter

    It only makes sense – a light butter flavor Protein Popcorn from Protes! (Label)

    New Protes Protein Popcorn Flavor: Light Butter!

    “Perfect for a movie night.”

    As mentioned above in the intro, Protes Protein Popcorn is the most impressive high-protein snack innovation we’ve seen since in years!

    Here’s what Krik had to say:

    We are also launching a new flavor into our popcorn lineup, Light Butter. Perfect flavor for a movie night. All the products will be available in Vitamin Shoppe’s, HEB, Sprouts, Giant Eagle, and countless other retailers as well as Europa Sports Products distribution.

    — Krik Angacian, Protes Co-Founder and CEO

    That’s quite a line-up. Unlike the protein chips, these are not vegan as they use whey protein isolate. The original two flavors are White Cheddar and Sweet Cinnamon, making Light Butter flavor number three.

    Each bag contains 10g protein, 9g net carbs, and 12g fat, leading to a more “balanced” protein-powered snack. The new ingredient in this Light Butter flavor is none other than Butter Powder, made from Sweet Cream (presumably dehydrated) and Salt. Click here to see the full label for the Light Butter flavor.

  3. Protes Labeling Rebrand

    Finally, the brand got a total facelift, bringing bolder colors to go with those bolder chip flavors:

    Protes as we know it has been around for +5 years and although the packaging has gone through a few iterations, the overall branding has stayed consistent. We are transitioning to a bolder, brighter, more approachable look for all our products.

    The new bags, as you can see, are simple and effective, especially compared to many of the “noisy” supplement labels we’re used to seeing. With Protes, you immediately know exactly what you’re going to get, and that’s important when on the store shelves at world-class grocery stores like Sprouts and the Texas-based HEB.
