Rootana Ingredients and Nutritional Information Explained

Rootana is the perfect food shake: A balanced blend of wholesome ingredients, designed to work with all lifestyles and help you achieve all health and fitness goals. Here’s how Rootana works.

Who is Rootana For?

Macros refers to macronutrients: the classes of dietary nutrition that comprise energy (calories) in foods. Macros include:

  • Carbohydrate
  • Protein
  • Fats
  • Fibre

The practice of counting and calibrating macros can help with fitness, weight loss and many other aspects of health. However, macro tracking can also be inconvenient and imprecise.

Rootana helps make macro counting easy and effective with a balanced split of 40-45% carb, 20-25% protein, 30-35% fat, and 3-5% fibre.

This design meets general guidelines for overall wellness, serving as a healthy, balanced, easy-to-track macro source for daily use.

Rootana supplies macros from functional food sources that nourish with wholesome nutrition while optimizing and enhancing health in many ways.

Rootana also supplies 20% Reference Intake of 25 vitamins and minerals, helping to restore essentials that are required for peak health, but that many may be missing.

Fat: 30-35%
Protein: 20-25%
Fibre: 3-5%
 
 
 
 
 
Carbohydrate picture

Carbs: 43-44%

Rootana’s carbohydrate is primarily from oat flour. Due to its fibre content and lower glycemic index, oat flour creates less of a blood sugar spike after eating, which in turn promotes stronger appetite control and steadier energy release.

Rootana’s carb stack is also includes a small amount of coconut sugar to provide a quick energy boost before slower release oat energy is released over an extended time.

Protein picture

Protein: 20-21%

Rootana supplies clean plant protein, primarily from yellow peas, supported with additional protein from oat flour and flaxseed. Rootana’s 3X protein blend provides all 9 essential amino acids from healthy, high-quality plant sources.

Additionally, Rootana plant proteins bring research-backed functional food benefits for muscle growth & recovery, appetite control, cardiovascular wellness and more.

Fats picture

Fat: 14-16%

Rootana supplies healthy fats from sunflower seed oil and golden milled flaxseed, forming a powerhouse plant-based stack of Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids.

Beyond serving as a “good fat” macro energy source, sunflower seed oil and golden milled flaxseed deliver extended research-backed support for weight loss, cardiovascular health, digestive health, immune function and more. 

Fibre picture

Fibre: 7-9%

Rootana includes a small amount of soluble fibre to nourish the microbiome, promote digestive health, and help encourage complete nutrient digestion.

Fibre also slows food transit time while blunting blood sugar spikes, assisting appetite control in concert Rootana’s other weight loss-supporting ingredients.

Rootana and ingredients

Naturally Sweetened. No Bad Stuff.

Artificial sweeteners like sucralose, aspartame and maltodextrin are present in many food shakes. However, some artificial sweeteners have been suggested in research to disrupt the gut microbiome, act as neurotoxins, skew blood sugar and promote weight gain, among other side effects.

Stevia emerged as a natural alternative but has since been linked with kidney and cardiovascular concerns.

No Artificial Sweeteners.

Rootana avoids all artificial sweeteners and stevia.

Instead, Rootana features natural coconut sugar: A clean, safe, and delicious sweetener that supplies trace vitamins & minerals and has a lower glycemic index than table sugar.

A little coconut sugar goes a long way.

Rootana Ingredients

Oat Flour Powder: The world’s healthiest functional carbohydrate.

Whole oat flour is made by steaming and grinding whole groats, which best preserves active nutrients including Beta-glucan (β-glucan) soluble fibre. Oat flour serves as Rootana’s primary complex carbohydrate source, providing a sustained, slow-release “afterburner” energy supply that complements the formula’s faster-acting coconut sugar carbohydrate.

Oat flour’s mild nutty flavor and creamy texture satisfy the senses as well as the appetite. A leading functional carbohydrate for general health, oat flour has also been shown in research to support:

Appetite & Weight

Appetite control & weight loss: It blunts blood sugar spikes and slows food transit time.

Gut Health

Via a prebiotic effect that nourishes beneficial probiotics in the microbiome

Heart Health

Multiple aspects of heart health and overall cardiovascular wellness

Immunity

Healthy and balanced immune responses

Pea Protein Isolate

Premium plant protein for fitness, appetite control, heart health & more.

Extracted from yellow peas (Pisum sativum), this high biological value, easy-to-digest plant protein source works for vegans, athletes and anyone following a healthy plant-based lifestyle. Pea protein is a complete protein source, loaded with amino acids including athletic performance-enhancing, muscle-building branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs). Pea Protein is a clean, functional and formidable alternative to whey protein, as well as a leading choice for vegan fitness and athletics: It supplies 3x more circulation-boosting arginine than whey. Researchers have suggested pea protein may support the body in the following ways:

Golden Flaxseed graph

Golden Milled Flaxseed

Raises Omega-3 levels naturally, without consuming fish oil.

Golden milled flaxseed supplies alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential fatty acid (EFA) that serves as a building block to the Omega-3 acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Flaxseed naturally raises EPA and DHA levels without the need for fish oil, krill oil, algal oil or other standard EPA and DHA sources. Flaxseed also supplies soluble and insoluble fibre, high quality protein, potassium and health-promoting lignans. Researchers have suggested that flaxseed shows promise for assisting with a wide range of metabolic concerns, including:

Sugar

Blood sugar and insulin resistance.

Weight

Healthy weight management.

Cholesterol

Issues related to unbalanced blood cholesterol levels.

Oil

Sunflower seed oil

Omega-6/9

Prized plant source of Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids

Sunflower Seed Oil

Rootana features sunflower seed oil as a rich source of health-promoting essential fatty acids. Sunflower seeds contain roughly 40% oil which, when extracted, is naturally rich in Omega-6 (Linoleic) acid and Omega-9 (oleic acid).

Researchers have suggested that replacing dietary saturated fats with linoleic acid appears to promote overall cardiovascular health.

Oleic acid, on the other hand, has been shown to assist with healthy weight management. Sunflower oil is also notably high in antioxidants -- including plant phenols and vitamin E – that may help to neutralize the cell-damaging, age-accelerating effects of free radicals.

Coconut Sugar

Rootana features coconut sugar as its primary sweetener. In formulation, Rootana consciously avoided the use of artificial sweeteners and stevia. Coconut sugar emerged as the ideal choice: A small amount delivers plenty of natural sweetness. It also supplies a small amount of inulin, a type of fibre that helps slow its absorption to limit blood sugar spikes. And, unlike plain table sugar, coconut sugar supplies some nutrients, including potassium, calcium, zinc and antioxidants.

  • Sunflower Lecithin
  • Per 100g: Protein 0g, Fat 91g, Carb 6.3g, Fibre 0g

Sunflower Lecithin

Even Rootana’s emulsifier is a functional ingredient. Sunflower lecithin assists with Rootana powder’s stability and mixability while contributing bonus nutrition to the formula as a whole. Lecithin is a phospholipid, a type of healthy fat that supplies phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine: Compounds that help to form and maintain healthy cell membranes while supporting brain chemical production. Lecithin is associated with brain health support, including mood balance.
