With Hammer Vegan Protein in three different flavors, it is easy to make vegan-friendly, soy-free versions of your favorite Hammer Nutrition fuels. While it's not possible to make exact replicas of Perpetuem or Recoverite using Hammer Vegan Protein, the following recipes are quite similar in terms of their carbohydrate and protein makeup, and their caloric donation as well.
Soy-Free Vegan Perpetuem
Each scoop of Perpetuem contains:
- 135 calories, 27 grams of carbohydrates, 3.5 grams of protein, and 1.25 grams of fat.
- To make a fuel that's comparable to Perpetuem using Hammer Vegan Protein, mix:
- 1 level scoop of HEED = 100 calories from 26 grams of carbohydrates
- 1/4 scoop of Hammer Vegan Protein = 27.5 calories from 5 grams of protein, 1.25 grams of carbohydrates, and 0.25 grams of fat
- TOTAL CARBOHYDRATES - 27.25 grams
- TOTAL PROTEIN - 5 grams
- TOTAL FAT - 0.25 grams
- TOTAL CALORIES - 127
- Every two-scoop serving of Recoverite contains:
- 170 calories, 33 grams of carbohydrates, and 10 grams of whey protein.
- To make a similar recovery drink using Hammer Vegan Protein, mix:
- 1 slightly heaping scoop of HEED = approximately 115 calories from roughly 30 grams of carbohydrates
- 1/2 scoop of Hammer Vegan Protein = 55 calories from 10 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of carbohydrates
- TOTAL CARBOHYDRATES - 32.5 grams
- TOTAL PROTEIN - 10 grams
- TOTAL CALORIES - 170

Organic Pea Protein: Easily digested protein with an excellent amino acid profile, containing leucine, isoleucine, valine (the three branched-chain amino acids), lysine, arginine, and glutamine. An interesting characteristic of pea protein is that it assists in lowering levels of ghrelin, an appetite-stimulating peptide. The result is an increased potential for feeling satiated, thus possibly helping to prevent overeating. Organic Pumpkin Protein is derived from the nutrient-rich seeds, is not only a complete protein source, but also plentiful in vitamin K and the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and more. Pumpkin seeds contain numerous phenols with antioxidant properties.
Organic Sacha Inchi: Derived from the seeds of the South America Plukenetia volubilis plant. Because it contains all nine essential amino acids, sacha inchi is considered a complete protein source. Sacha inchi is also a potent source of the essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Organic Spirulina: A microscopic single-celled alga, is a complete protein source and has the highest concentration of protein by weight of any food. Considered by many to be THE superfood of superfoods, spirulina is vitamin- and mineral-dense, and rich in enzymes and antioxidants such as superoxide dismutase. It's a potent source of chlorophyll (second only to chlorella) and essential fatty acids. Spirulina is also considered a blood-building nutrient, primarily due to its polypeptide content (called phycocyanin). Additionally, spirulina is believed to help maintain digestive system health by serving as a food/fuel source for beneficial intestinal flora.
Organic Chlorella: Another single-celled alga and, like spirulina, is a complete protein, loaded with chlorophyll and essential fatty acids. Chlorella is perhaps the most vitamin- and mineral-dense "green food" available, including a complete B vitamin profile. (Chlorella has more vitamin B12 by weight than liver!) Chlorella also contains naturally occurring RNA and DNA for assisting in cellular growth and repair, and is considered an "eye health" nutrient, courtesy of its plentiful amounts of beta-carotene and lutein. Lastly, chlorella has gained a reputation as an excellent detoxifying agent. It is purported to have the ability to bind to heavy metals as well as other toxic substances in the bowels.
FAQQ: Does the Vegan Protein contain soy?
A: Organic Vegan Protein does not contain soy. The five organic protein sources are pea, pumpkin, Sacha Inchi, spirulina, and chlorella.
Q: I am training for an Olympic Tri and then a 70.3. Do I need to add supplemental BCAA's to the Vegan Protein Powder or am I good to go?
A: Remember that you need both carbs and protein--about an 8:1 ratio--to satisfy your body's energy requirements more completely during a longer-duration event, such as a 70.3 triathlon. Both Sustained Energy and Perpetuem have both carbs and protein in that ratio, but if you cannot consume soy protein, which both of those two products contain, here is a recipe for making an 8:1 endurance fuel using HEED and Vegan Protein: **** 1 level scoop of HEED = 100 calories from 26 grams of carbohydrates **** 1/4 scoop of Hammer Vegan Protein = 27.5 calories from 5 grams of protein, 1.25 grams of carbohydrates, and .25 grams of fat TOTAL CARBOHYDRATES – 27.25 grams TOTAL PROTEIN – 5 grams TOTAL FAT – .25 grams TOTAL CALORIES – 127 Flavor suggestions: **** Mandarin Orange HEED + Vanilla Hammer Vegan Protein = Orange-Vanilla Soy-Free Vegan Perpetuem **** Strawberry HEED + Strawberry Hammer Vegan Protein = Berry Soy-free Vegan Perpetuem **** Unflavored HEED + Vanilla Hammer Vegan Protein + splash of cold coffee = Caffé Latte Soy-free Vegan Perpetuem While it is not absolutely crucial to add BCAA's to your intake--there will be some in your Vegan Protein--there are some pretty cool benefits to enjoy by supplementing with Endurance BCAA+ (https://www.hammernutrition.com/products/peak-performance/endurance-amino/). Perhaps the best benefit of supplementing with BCAA's prior to and during exercise is that these three amino acids have been shown to reduce the perception of fatigue, both physically and mentally.
Q: Which product would you recommend after very long run (I am preparing for Racing the Planer stage race - 4 marathons, 1 50miler back-to-back) as a recovery drink taken after each stage. Vegan Recoverite vs Vegan protein
A: Definitely Vegan Recoverite for consumption ASAP (within 30 minutes) after your workouts and after each stage. You need the carbs to restock the muscle cells with fuel (glycogen), and you need the protein to help with muscle tissue repair. After a particular hard workout and after each stage--and especially if you're not going to have a solid food meal within the next couple hours--a double serving (4 scoops) of Vegan Recoverite would certainly be merited. The night after an extremely hard workout--and definitely the night after each stage--have a serving of Vegan Protein just prior to bed (no carbs, just protein mixed in water). The body does a lot of its muscle tissue repair/rebuild processes during sleep, and by consuming a serving of Vegan Protein just prior supplies the body with the amino acids it needs to do these processes
Q: Can vegan protein be used before exercise? Lets say before running for extended period of time and medium intensity? As pre-fuel.
A: You can certainly use Vegan Protein prior to exercise. Keep in mind that if pre-exercise calories are going to be consumed, you will want to focus more on carbohydrates--only a small amount of protein is actually necessary--and you will want to complete consumption 3 hours prior to the start. See https://www.hammernutrition.com/knowledge/endurance-news/pre-event-fueling-demystified/ for more information!
Q: Can vegan protein be used as a meal replacement?
A: If you're looking to bolster your daily protein intake, with minimal carbohydrates, Hammer Vegan Protein is excellent as a meal replacement. The vanilla flavor is particularly good as a protein "base" when making smoothies using frozen fruit, water, and a blender
Q: Phosphorus, how much is in it, I do not see it listed?
A: If there is less than 2% of the Daily Value (DV) in a serving of a food/fuel such as Hammer Vegan Protein, it does not require listing on the nutrition facts. The DV for phosphorus is 1,000 mg, which means that there is 20 mg or less of phosphorus in one serving of Hammer Vegan Protein.
1 Level Scoop (73 cc) = 3 TBSP + 2 tsp
Secondly, in order to effectively elevate hGH levels, minimal-to-no carbohydrates should be consumed; carbohydrates blunt natural hGH release. Each scoop of Unflavoured Hammer Whey contains no carbohydrates, all flavoured versions of Hammer Whey contain less than 1 gram of carbohydrates per scoop, while all flavours of Hammer Vegan Protein contains 5 grams of carbohydrates in each scoop. That may not sound like a very wide gap, but it's enough to make a difference when the goal is maximizing hGH release.
To safely raise hGH levels without risk to your endocrine system, we recommend mixing 1 scoop of Hammer Whey in 4-6 ounces of water only; not juice or milk as those carbs will hinder the process. This may safely raise hGH levels while you sleep by as much as 430% compared to the usual nightly spike. That's enough to have a noticeably beneficial effect on anabolic, muscle building/maintenance activity in the body.
