WHAT IS MONK FRUIT & WHY IS IT USED IN WELLNESS POWDER?

Monk Fruit extract is a zero-calorie, 100% natural sweetener that does not add any sugars to the nutritional profile.

DOES KURA CONTAIN ADDED SUGARS?

HOW DOES KURA PROCESS THE DAIRY PROTEIN?

Kura’s dairy partners in New Zealand use low-temperature, ultra-filtration & an advanced spray dry process to produce our unique dairy protein blend of whole milk powder, milk protein concentrate & whey protein concentrate. We don’t strip our dairy protein of any good stuff, so you get a wholesome blend of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals & of course, protein.

HOW DOES KURA PROCESS THE PLANT PROTEIN?

Kura’s plant based vegan protein is produced using gentle, patented processes without the use of harsh chemical solvents.

HEALTH BENEFITS

WHAT ARE AMINO ACIDS & WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins & a complete amino acid profile is an important part of your diet. Amino acids perform many important functions – they help build muscle, repair tissue, boost your immune system & play a role in the development of the central nervous system. In short, they are vitally important to every one of the body’s functions. While the body produces many amino acids on its own, there are nine essential amino acids that we must get from food or supplement sources. Kura's unique, pasture raised dairy protein blend contains 20 amino acids, including all nine essential amino acids. Kura's plant based vegan protein blend has also been formulated to deliver all nine essential amino acids.

WHY DOES PROTEIN MATTER?

Proteins are essential nutrients for the body & vital for every function. Protein is used to build & repair tissues, to make enzymes, hormones & other body chemicals. It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage & blood. It’s even important for healthy skin, hair & nails.

WHY ARE PREBIOTICS IMPORTANT?

For our bodies to function at full tilt, we must pay attention to seemingly minuscule parts of our diet. One of these elusive ingredients is prebiotic fiber. We’ve all heard of probiotics, but prebiotics can elicit a question mark. While probiotics are important for gut and overall immune health, prebiotics help probiotic colonies flourish and do their job. Our VP of Business Development, Jen, puts it like this, “Pairing prebiotics with probiotics is the equivalent of sending probiotics into your body with a bagged lunch to keep them full & functioning.” Cute, right? That’s precisely why we’ve paired 5g of acacia prebiotic fiber with 2b CFUs probiotics in our Plant Based Vegan & New Zealand Dairy Wellness Powders.

WHAT'S ACACIA FIBER?

Not all prebiotic fibers are made equal, some can seriously hurt your stomach & send you into gas/diarrhea hell. No one has time for that, so we made sure to choose the right prebiotic fiber. Our acacia prebiotic fiber is carefully sourced from acacia Senegal trees in Saharan Africa. This fiber offers a variety of benefits that will surely make you smile: no flatulence or stomach bloating, helps your body work harder & makes our Wellness Powders extra smooth.

WHAT'S THE NEW ZEALAND PASTURE RAISED DIFFERENCE?

Ranking #1 on the Animal Protection Index for animal welfare standards & home of strict federal legislation protecting agriculture animals, New Zealand ensures our pasture raised cows roam free year-round, grazing on lush clovers & soaking up the sun, creating the most nutrient-rich, clean protein in the world. Antibiotic, hormone & chemical use is illegal in New Zealand, ensuring grass fed protein that is higher in CLAs, vitamin E, beta carotene & omega-3s. Our unstripped blend of whole milk & whey concentrate delivers a best-in-class amino acid profile, giving your gut optimum ability to respond, absorb & digest nutrients.

HOW DO YOU GET PROBIOTICS INTO POWDERED FORM & HOW DO THEY STAY ALIVE?

Kura's probiotic bacteria are freeze dried to ensure stability and delivered with prebiotic fibers to promote viability.

HOW DO YOU MEASURE PROBIOTICS?

Probiotics are measured in colony forming units (CFUs) in millions or billions. Lab tests are used to measure the quantity and have confirmed the amount of probiotics at the time of manufacturing. Natural die-off will occur with exposure to moisture, heat & oxygen, so we recommend sealing your Wellness Powder well & storing in a cool, dry place.

DO KURA'S WELLNESS POWDERS CONTAIN ANTIBIOTICS?

Kura's New Zealand Dairy Wellness Powder does not contain antibiotics or growth hormones. Kura dairy products are sourced from New Zealand where cows are raised on pasture & grass fed. They spend most of their lives roaming on fields, eating grass & drinking water. This environment provides a healthy, natural way for them to live. Any cows that are unwell are separated out for treatment & only released back into the milking herd once they are fully recovered. Each batch of milk is tested to ensure there are no antibiotics present.
