The Perfect Balanced Meal

Unlike most meal shakes, Rootana has a completely balanced nutritional profile. It contains all the fats, carbs, protein, and fibre that make up a healthy meal. Each shake contains 400 calories. There are 43-44 grams of carbohydrates, 20-21 grams of protein, 14-16 grams of healthy fats, and 7-9 grams of fibre.

The macronutrient ratio has been designed to fuel and sustain your body’s needs. Rootana’s macro split is 42% carbohydrates, 20% protein, 33% healthy fats, and 4% fibre. This macro split is recommended by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) [1] and is designed to provide you with enough of each macronutrient to lead an active and healthy life.

Many meal replacement shakes don’t provide you with a healthy balance of macros. Instead, they will offer a low-carb or low-fat shake, which is too high in protein. Not only do these products prevent you from optimising your nutrition, low-carb and low-fat diets have consistently been shown to be more difficult and less enjoyable to follow than consistently eating balanced, calorie-controlled meals.

A complete blend of protein, healthy fats, carbs and fibre

Rootana has a complete nutritional profile and has been designed to provide you with everything needed for a balanced meal. This means that it contains protein, fats, carbohydrates, and fibre. The macronutrient split is based on nutritional research and expert opinions.

Rootana Breakdown

Complex Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the body’s preferred fuel source. Complex carbohydrates provide slow-releasing energy throughout the day. The higher the fibre content of your carb sources, the more sustained your energy levels will be. Rootana uses oats for the majority of its carbs, which are well known for their low GI score and slow energy release.

Healthy Fats

Healthy fats are a crucial component of health. They provide satiety (helping you to feel full after a meal), they are an excellent source of energy, and they can help your body to function correctly. Not consuming enough fat in your diet can lead to low mood, hormonal fluctuations, and increased appetite. It can even affect your immune system! The fats used in Rootana are also filled with vital nutrients including omega-3s, 6s, and 9s.

Rootana Breakdown

Vegan Protein

Protein is crucial for building muscle, maintaining a healthy metabolism, and fuelling exercise. But it is not just about quantity. The quality of your protein is crucial. Rootana offers both! High-quality plant-based protein is used, and it comes from a variety of sources. Providing you with all the amino acids necessary for muscle building and maintenance. It’s worth being aware that low quality meal shakes often include an excessive amount of low-cost and low-quality protein in their formulas.

Fibre

Fibre is found in carbohydrates, and thanks to the use of high-grade oats, Rootana contains a lot of fibre in its recipe. Fibre is crucial for a healthy gut and immune system, and it can also help you to maintain a healthy weight. Fibre, like protein, is highly satiating, helping to prevent cravings between meals. A high-fibre meal such as Rootana is digested at a slower rate, helping your body to absorb more nutrients, whilst also preventing digestive problems.

What does Rootana taste like?

Unlike other brands, Rootana does not use artificial sweeteners, stevia or sucralose. Sweeteners are used by other brands to keep calories low and provide a sweet taste. However, many people dislike the artificial taste and find it too sweet. These ingredients can also cause bloating and digestive issues in some people.

Every Rootana flavour has a natural oaty flavour. Original flavour tastes just like lightly sweetened oatmeal. Cacao combines the taste of natural dark chocolate with a lightly sweetened oat flavour.

Hi, I’m Robert, the founder of Rootana.

I’m in my late 30’s and I’ve got a passion for healthy eating and being out in nature.

After a hectic and stressful 13 year career running a business in the city, it all got too much for me at aged 34, I burnt out and I had to take time off. During that time, I started to re-assess my whole life and work out what was truly important to me.

To get things back on track, I reduced my work responsibilities, moved out of the city to spend more time in nature and focused on nutrition and healthy eating, preparing 3 fresh meals a day.

Within a short time, I was feeling great, I felt free and so much healthier than before. I learnt the importance of nature and living a balanced life.

Overtime, I realised that preparing 3 fresh meals a day wasn’t practical and preparing food before a hiking trip was reducing my time on the trail.

That’s when I discovered complete meal shakes. On the surface they offered everything that I was looking for; a quick, healthy, lightweight meal that I could take anywhere.

When I tried a few brands, I couldn’t get used to the artificial taste of the sucralose or the stevia, and they were upsetting my guts. I didn’t like the idea of consuming sweeteners anyway.

I looked into the possibilities of making a truly healthy complete meal shake that is flavoured by nature, tastes like real food and has the right balance of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats to fuel any outdoor pursuit.

After testing recipes in my kitchen, giving them to my friends to try and then working closely with a nutritionist and food producer, Rootana was created.

I’m really proud to have created the worlds healthiest complete meal shake.

  • Tastes like food. No sucralose or stevia

Frequently asked questions

Rootana is different to other complete meal shakes as it provides a perfectly balanced meal and our recipe avoids any unwanted ingredients.

Many meal shakes don’t provide a balanced nutritional profile which can lead to energy crashes and snacking between meals. Rootana keeps you feeling full for longer by providing the right amount of slow-release energy from complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. It’s also high in protein, contains fiber to help digestion and contains all 27 vitamins and minerals.

 

Rootana is made in FDA/BRC accredited facilities in the USA and UK.

Sucralose (Splenda) is an artificial sweetener that has been linked to various health risks, from heart disease to increasing weight gain. You can find detailed information and the studies about Sucralose here: https://usrtk.org/sweeteners/sucralose-emerging-science-reveals-health-risks/ As well as the long-term health concerns. Many people report digestion, gut and excess gas problems after consuming Sucralose.

Stevia (Steviol Glycosides) has been shown to effect gut health in studies. Many people report having a headache after consuming Stevia. It has an unpleasant after taste, manufacturers try to disguise this taste by mixing it with other sweeteners or sugar.

Overall, the long-term health effects of sweeteners are unknown. Which is why we have chosen not to use them in Rootana.

No, when consumed in low amounts, coconut sugar can be part of a healthy balanced diet. Each serving of Rootana contains a low amount of coconut sugar. Unlike regular white sugar, coconut sugar is unrefined, it has a lower glycemic index, but doesn’t spike blood sugar levels to the same extent. It also contains extra nutrients that are beneficial for you.

The coconut sugar in Rootana helps provide an immediate energy boost in advance of slower release energy from complex carbohydrates being released. Coconut sugar has also been shown to improve the athletic performance of young men: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2352364621000080

Rootana is classed as being high in protein because 20% of the calories in Rootana come from protein. This is the right level of protein relative to the other macro nutrients for the vast majority of active people. A standard serving (4 scoops) of Rootana will provide 20g of protein, a large serving (6 scoops) will provide 30g of protein.

Rootana is a high protein, high fibre, meal replacement shake that contains 400 calories. It can make dieting easier, and can be an effective component of a calorie deficit diet. However, Rootana is not solely designed for weight loss, and it can also be used for healthy weight management or even building muscle.

Yes, Rootana can fit into a healthy diet very easily, and has no side effects or controversial ingredients. Consuming it daily is perfectly safe, as well as being cost-effective and efficient.

No, Rootana isn't a meal replacement. It doesn't contain any of the unhealthy ingredients that are found in meal replacements and weight loss shakes. Rootana is real, healthy food ingredients that have been ground up and made into a shake.
