Core Vegan Strawberry Cream Frosted Cinnamon Bun

CORE Nutritionals Vegan protein powder has two new flavors: Strawberry Cream and Frosted Cinnamon Bun!

Nearly a year after the latest Core VEGAN flavor — Vanilla Créme — Core Nutritionals is back at it with two new flavors:

Strawberry Cream and Frosted Cinnamon Bun Core Vegan are here!

Core VEGAN is a vegan protein blend that has some incredible additives to make it even better. We’re talking about a pea/rice protein blend, added BCAAs, absorption-improving digestive enzymes, a phenomenal creamer blend, yet sucralose-sweetened for maximum flavor potential!

Let’s quickly take a look at the PricePlow-powered prices and then dig into some of the macros and revisit the unique and well-fortified vegan blend:

The new flavors and their macros

Strawberry Cream and Frosted Cinnamon Bun both have the exact same macros as the Vanilla Creme flavor covered last year:

Core Vegan Nutrition Facts

From the Vanilla Creme label. With the added BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), we have a very well-rounded amino acid profile

  • Calories: 120
  • Protein: 21g
  • Fat: 3g (1g saturated)
  • Carbohydrates: 2g (~0.5g fiber)

We always have to point out that we love seeing 21 grams of protein rather than the standard 20. Like that guy in the office you call “topper” who always has to one-up everyone else, Core VEGAN has the last word on this matter.

A recap of Core VEGAN

  • A pea protein isolate + brown rice protein blend for a full amino acid spectrum
  • Added BCAAs (branched-chain amino acids) to further improve the amino acid profile
  • Digestive enzymes added to boost absorption and digestibility
  • A coconut oil creamer blended with xanthan gum to thicken and smooth the mix
  • Sucralose and acesulfame potassium sweetened

Core Vegan Frosted Cinnamon Bun

That’s Frosted Cinnamon Bun!!

The use of pea protein and brown rice protein allows for a better amino acid profile, since the two complement each other’s deficiencies, and allow for a smoother blend. To make things even better, CORE adds more leucine-rich BCAAs, short for branched-chain amino acids. Since leucine is the primary amino acid that signals muscle protein synthesis, it’s always great to have more – especially if we have the other EAAs alongside.

With the DigiSeb digestive enzyme blend, there’s added protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase, and lactase in order to improve the breakdown of protein, starches, plant fibers, fats, and lactose, respectively. All but the last one apply to Core Vegan.

Additionally, realize that we have a vegan sweetening blend, but it’s not 100% plant-based. This almost universally brings far better taste, and is perfect for Core Nutritionals users who are looking for a better dairy-free option and aren’t necessarily “plant-based purists”.

A full breakdown is covered in our article titled CORE Vegan: BCAA-Enhanced Vegan Protein.

All Core Flavors Available

Strawberry Cream or Cinnamon Bun not your style? Then maybe you can try Vanilla Creme or one of the other classic flavors:

CORE Vegan Protein

CORE Vegan Protein is perfect for CORE Nutritionals’ demographic, with added BCAAs, digestive enzymes, and full-on flavor to bring it home!

    Vegan done right: CORE Vegan keeps the flavors coming

    Whether they like it or not, CORE Nutritionals is a protein company – they do tons more, but they keep coming out with fantastic protein powders!

    For their athlete-minded demographic, we believe that this is exactly how a brand should formulate a dairy-free / vegan protein powder. The BCAAs may boost muscle protein synthesis

    This is a vegan protein powder that speaks to their demographic — athletes. The added BCAAs and digestive enzymes (especially protease) are what’s needed when chasing not only performance, but also recovery. While plant-based proteins won’t contain sucralose or ace-K, almost nobody following the crew at CORE is going to care – so we might as well go for taste, especially when it won’t spike blood sugar.

    Next, we get back to more in the CORE Lifeline Series, so stay tuned to PricePlow:
