Why would you not take Vegan Essential Aminos? These amino acids are exactly the same, they are just made more ethically with more transparency and they are cleaner. Initially, we saw a problem in the types of protein, amino acid requirement and the amino acids available for those choosing to live a vegan lifestyle. This is especially true in those that also train hard and are eating for sporting performance or for body goals. Whilst trying to find a solution to the problem within the vegan community, we discovered that the existing amino acid industry may have its own problems that the vegans can fix. The learning experience went both ways and the final product was inspired by vegan requirements, the vegan code of ethics and environmental ideals, but the end result is something we can all use and benefit from. The amino acids themselves are exactly the same. It is just the starting material and other steps that vary between the vegan aminos and non-vegan aminos.
How are aminos made? They don’t extract aminos from plants. It is too expensive and too low yield with too much burden on the environment and potential GMO infiltration. Instead, vegan essential aminos are made through fermentation of sugars from plants; the sugars are NON-GMO and the microbes involved are also non-GMO. This is how our intestinal microbiome makes amino acids for us and them in our normal digestive process. So that is actually common sense and nice and clean with very low environmental impact. This project has taken us over a year to complete because finding vegan essential aminos from a vegan source was extremely difficult. Many amino acids are simply not available in vegan form. We started asking what they actually are whilst also demanding the flow charts and declarations of starting material; and it is kind of really gross and horrible and not something we wanted to put our name to. They are sometimes extracted from animal products as they can get a much higher yield from a very cheap starting material that doesn’t rot easily. Unlike the vegan starting material being plants.
The non-vegan aminos are made from things like duck feathers, animal blood or animal skin, in some cases the starting material may be any combination of these three but you may never know which one. As we found out from our raw material suppliers, it is simply potluck as to which sourced material they happen to have in stock at the time. Most manufacturers and supplement companies don’t even consider this when they make their amino products as the product is based on average costings, not starting materials. To make things even harder, when we did finally find a non-animal source of amino acid we then discovered it was made from the fermentation of sugar by bugs but GMO sources of everything; GMO corn or wheat sugar fermented by GMO mould to excrete an amino acid. ATP Science does NOT do GMO.
So, getting NON-GMO Vegan Essential aminos was the goal to provide a solution to the vegan problem. However, regardless of your omnivore/herbivore status, these aminos we have sourced for our Vegan Essential Aminos are the nicest, cleanest and most transparent ones on the market.
