PlantFusion


Sarah Velasco: Can you tell us about PlantFusion? How did it get started? 
Scott Scriffignano: PlantFusion was started four years ago with an idea to make plant-based nutrition easier and more delicious.

Sarah Velasco: Can you tell us about your products? 
Scott Scriffignano: We make plant based products using ingredients that we believe are not only good for our bodies, but good for our planet as well. We are people who have grown up in the “health food” lifestyle and embrace the philosophies of holistic living.

Sarah Velasco: How often do you recommend consuming the supplement? 
Scott Scriffignano: It all depends on what you like. It can be as simple as adding one scoop in 10-12 oz of your favorite beverage, or adding fresh fruit into a blender and making a smoothie. We even have people that bake with PlantFusion!

Sarah Velasco: Can you tell us the difference between Phood and PlantFusion? 
Scott Scriffignano: PlantFusion is our original product. A plant based protein shake made with a blend of peas, artichokes, quinoa, and amaranth; PlantFusion is first and foremost a protein supplement. Phood is a much more complex product. We characterize it as a 100% plant based whole food meal shake. Essentially 8 supplements in one; Phood consists of the PlantFusion protein blend, wholefood vitamins/minerals, omega 3-6-9, complex carbs made from ancient grains, 6g of fiber, a cruciferous greens complex, 1 billion probiotics, and antioxidants.

Sarah Velasco: What are different ways to incorporate PlantFusion into food?
Scott Scriffignano: The options are endless! We’ve seen PlantFusion brownies, cookies, pancakes, scones, granola bars, cakes, yogurt, oatmeal… even ice cream! Just search our website or Pinterest for new and exciting recipes.

Sarah Velasco: Can you tell us one delicious smoothie recipe to make using PlantFusion?

"Years of testing and research on more than a dozen different plant-based protein sources led to the creation of this unique blend of ingredients that, when combined, scores a perfect 1.0 on the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS). PDCAAS is the gold standard for rating the quality of protein for human nutrition.
PlantFusion was designed to be a simple, delicious tool to help you achieve your health and fitness goals. The protein in PlantFusion is perfect for muscle energy, managing appetite, and overall recovery from exercise and daily stress.
The only plant-based protein shake that compares to whey; enhanced with 4500mg of branched chain amino acids (BCAA) and 3,350mg of glutamine, PlantFusion is a complete and extremely potent source of protein by any standard. The first plant-based protein that compares to animal proteins (like whey) in amino acid density and balance."

"This is the question we asked ourselves when we set out to create Phood.  We wanted to offer more than just another supplement.  We wanted to create the perfect nutritional program.  Everything needed for complete nutritional support and recovery in one simple, easy, delicious shake. And of course if it’s made by PlantFusion it has to be;
  • 100% Plant-Based from whole food sources
  • No Major Allergens; Dairy, Soy, Gluten, etc
  • No Animal
  • No Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)"
