Primal Kitchen Primal Fuel Frequently Asked Questions
What is Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey protein isolate, the primary source of protein in Primal Fuel, is the gold standard in protein powders, because it has the highest bioavailability of any form of protein. This means that it's one of the easiest types of protein for your body to use. It is derived from milk, but retains very little lactose or other milk proteins, which makes it easier to tolerate than other dairy supplements. Furthermore, many studies have demonstrated the various beneficial health properties of this particular protein, such as improved digestion and a stronger immune system.
What are Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are food for the good bacteria that inhabit your gut. Prebiotics encourage these good bacteria to survive and thrive. Primal Fuel prebiotics come in the form of all-natural soluble fibers like sea kelp extract and inulin derived from Jerusalem artichoke.
For how long does Primal Fuel curb hunger?
One Primal Fuel shake can curb hunger for up to three to five hours after consumption. It's not meant to replace all your meals (you still need to eat a balanced diet to achieve optimal health and weight loss), but it curbs hunger without adding lots of calories, which makes you more likely to eat responsibly at other meals.
What are the "Natural Flavors" made of?
Primal Kitchen's natural flavors are true to their name. They're a proprietary blend of natural cocoa powder, natural chocolate fudge, and natural vanilla bean, nothing tricky or artificial!
I thought sugar was bad. Why is there sucrose in Primal Fuel?
Straight protein powder doesn't taste very good, even when blended with coconut milk. It needs flavors and sweeteners to make it palatable. Primal Kitchen didn't want to use artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup or even straight fructose, so they chose to use two grams of evaporated cane juice (also known as sucrose) per serving as a sweetener, as well as a little natural stevia. Two grams is half a teaspoon and represents eight calories. Primal Kitchen simply went with the common name sucrose instead of evaporated cane juice. And yes, Grok would have definitely eaten evaporated cane juice when he came across some.
How often should I consume Primal Fuel?
Many people use Primal Fuel as a breakfast shake to start the day or to replace a meal with a low-calorie, high-protein, moderate-fat option. Others use it as a quick Primal-friendly snack when better snack choices are unavailable or unappealing. Some find it's a great way to add more protein and healthy fat to an existing small meal. So the frequency in which you use it will depend on how you use it.
How many servings are there per canister?
There are 21 delicious servings in each canister of Primal Fuel.
About Primal Kitchen
His name is Mark Sisson, and he is a former elite endurance athlete who has made health and fitness his life's work. Since trading in his professional running shoes 26 years ago, he has written a series of best-selling health and fitness books, designed natural state-of-the-art, health-enhancing nutritional supplements and educational diet and exercise systems, and has published Mark'sDailyApple.com, the world's most popular ancestral health website. His mission is to empower more people to take responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing and critically rethinking everything people assumed to be true about health and wellness. Primal Kitchen expands this mission, bringing uncompromisingly delicious, high quality, nutrient dense sauces and dressings to kitchens everywhere. In the world of real food, it's often what you put on your food that keeps it interesting. Join Mark on his mission to help 10 million people get healthy!
For 20 years now, I've enjoyed a daily 20-ingredient salad made up of turkey, salmon or tuna, sometimes some nuts like almonds or walnuts, along with tons of veggies like bell peppers, broccoli, cucumbers and artichokes. Although Mark loves his trusty balsamic vinegar and olive oil topping, he has also searched far and wide for healthy and tasty salad dressing alternatives. Unfortunately, he's run into one of two scenarios. Either the dressings are laden with industrial seed and vegetable oils like canola, sunflower, corn and soy oila – the primary instigators in all manner of chronic disease – or they boast out-of-this-world health and ingredient claims but tasteless, bland "flavor." Mark noticed the same dearth exists in condiments like ketchup, mayo and BBQ sauce. Sure, tasty enough options exist, but they all compromise your health and longevity!
So he set to work cooking up Primal-inspired salad dressings and condiments full of healthful, natural fats, superfoods, antioxidant-rich, high-ORAC-scoring herbs and spices, with no offensive, synthetic vegetable and seed oils and no artificial colors, flavors or fillers! The first product he set out to reinvent was mayonnaise – the holy grail of healthy fats. The complete lack of acceptable mayonnaise in-store today is appalling. Most options contain canola oil, soybean oil, sugar, HFCS, the list goes on. For Primal Kitchen Mayo, Mark chose to use one of his favorite superfoods – avocado oil – instead of canola or soybean oil. Combine that with organic, cage-free eggs, organic vinegar and salt and they've got one awesome tasting mayonnaise! Healthy mayo, who knew?
Now there's no more sacrificing flavor for health. All Primal Kitchen ingredients are selected according to the strictest standards of taste, natural healthfulness and phytonutrient potency. Primal Kitchen is among life's little affordable luxuries and created to be used extravagantly, so pour it on generously. The days of "easy on the salad dressing" are officially over! Make every bite a taste sensation.
Why Aren't They 100% Organic?
You see, while organic is non-negotiable for some ingredients like eggs, it's just not worth the huge added expense for certain others. Avocados, for instance, don't need to be bought organic, because pesticides can't penetrate their tough skin no matter how hard they try! Plus, organic avocado oil costs almost four times as much as non-organic, so you'd be paying four times as much for a jar of mayo with no appreciable added benefit. Now, if they wanted to rip you off just for the organic claim, they could have opted for organic canola oil. But that's just not their style…they'd rather mix non-organic, quality ingredients when appropriate with select organic nutrients, rather than contaminate their foods.
Grok is the oft-cited star of their Paleolithic backdrop, the poster-persona of the Primal Kitchen itself. Think of him as the non-gender specific collective archetype of the typical hunter-gatherer who thrived on evolutionary tried and true lifestyle behaviors: diet, exercise, sleep, stress, etc. And although Grok hearkens back to the cave-dwelling days, by modern standards he's the pinnacle of physiological vigor. Picture a tall, strapping figure: lean, ripped, agile. And as for what's underneath? An enviable workup: low to no systemic inflammation, low insulin and blood glucose readings, healthy (i.e. ideally functional) cholesterol and triglyceride levels. "Hmm," you say, closing your menu. "I'll have what he's having."
