Different people require different nutrition. To stay consistent with our mission of simplifying optimal nutrition, we need to create an evolving line of product variants.
First off, changes to the original Ample: we’re substituting more pumpkin protein for the pumpkin protein, while getting rid of alfalfa and Lactobacillus casei. These changes are all for health reasons as I’ll detail down below.
Now here are the next 3 products in the Ample pipeline!
1st New Version: Ample X
We’re substituting sprouted brown rice protein for the whey and collagen protein, and getting rid of stevia. Ample X will thus be completely paleo, vegan and vegetarian. It’ll be called Ample X because of its eXclusion of a few potential allergens, but it’ll actually be more inclusive and accommodating of people facing these dietary restrictions.
After the Indiegogo campaign ends, backers will receive an email survey to confirm their most up-to-date shipping address, the details of their order, and whether they want Ample (original) or require Ample X. The survey will make it easy for backers to either switch to Ample X, or get Ample X in addition to the original.
We’ll likely continue this naming convention, so additional products will have letters at the end of Ample.
We’re super excited to announce the next two variations we hope to release later this year: a very low carb (or “ketogenic”) version, and a high carb, low fat version.
2nd new version: very low carb
The ingredients making up the “ketogenic” version will be very similar to the current version of Ample, except the macronutrient ratio will change. It will be around 65% lipids, 25% protein, and 10% carbs. For a 400 calorie meal, this will mean: 29g fat, 26g protein, and 10g carbohydrates. The carbohydrates will consist almost exclusively of fiber from greens, resistant starch and other prebiotics, and won’t affect insulin much at all.
3rd new version: high carb, low fat
This version will be higher carb, lower fat and intended for people who tolerate more carbohydrates better, or after intense activity like interval training, weightlifting, sprinting, etc. Since we’re several months away from developing this version, because we’ll want to get considerable feedback on the initial 2 versions, I don’t have the specifics on this version yet.
Why the changes for the current version?
