What is Rootana?

Man sat down on rock with Rootana pouch

Rootana is the result of a 2-year-long development process by nutritionists and food scientists. Their objective was to develop a new kind of complete nutrition meal shake.

One that avoids using unnatural ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, refined carbs such as maltodextrin, and that unpleasant saccharine taste that so many meal shakes have.

Rootana provides you with a natural taste from real-food ingredients. The recipe was created to give you a scientifically-balanced macronutrient split. Rootana is high in plant protein, contains enough complex carbohydrates to fuel your activities, and is rich in healthy plant-based fats.

It is easy to digest, thanks to the numerous sources of natural fibre, and it is an excellent source of all the nutrients you need to thrive.

Each shake has a delicious, natural taste that comes from oats combined with a small amount of coconut sugar. Thanks to complex carbohydrates, fibre, protein, and healthy fats, Rootana ensures that you feel satisfied after every meal, making it perfect for people with busy lives who want to eat nutritious, healthy meals even when time is tight.

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 43-46 grams of carbohydrates, 20 grams of protein, 14 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 ingredients are in Rootana?

Oats Ingredient

Oats

Provide complex carbohydrates, fibre, protein, and healthy fats. Oats are known for their low GI score and slow release of energy. They prevent blood-sugar spikes, can improve your gut health, and have been shown to protect your heart and immune system.

Pea Protein

Pea Protein

Most of Rootana’s protein comes from yellow split peas, the perfect vegan protein source. Pea protein provides a complete amino acid profile, making it ideal for anyone who wants to build and maintain lean muscle. Pea protein can also increase satiety and prevent blood-sugar spikes. Perfect for appetite management.

Coconut Sugar

Coconut Sugar

A small amount of coconut sugar provides Rootana with its delicious, mildly sweet taste. Unlike artificial sweeteners, coconut sugar is completely natural. It also has a lower glycemic index than white sugar, meaning that it doesn’t spike blood glucose and insulin levels in the same way.​

Golden Milled Flaxseed

Golden Milled Flaxseed

Not only does flaxseed provide you with protein, carbs, and fibre, but it is also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed is popular with vegans as it is a non-fish source of crucial fatty acids. The fibre in flaxseed has been shown to lower cholesterol levels while also helping to curb your appetite. ​

Sunflower Oil

Sunflower Seed Oil

Rich in omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids, sunflower seed oil is very high in antioxidants and has been shown to improve cardiovascular health.

Sunflower Lecithin

Sunflower Lecithin

While the main purpose of sunflower lecithin is to work as an emulsifier, improving the stability and mixability of Rootana, it also contains phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine. Two common nootropics that have been found to improve mood and boost cognition.

Guar Gum/Xanthan Gum

Guar Gum/Xanthan Gum

Both have been added to Rootana to thicken the shakes and to provide additional fibre. They can also help to lower cholesterol, improve digestive health, and better regulate blood sugar.​

Vitamin and Mineral blend

Vitamin & Mineral Blend

Rootana contains all 27 vitamins and minerals required for a healthy lifestyle. Each shake contains 20% of your recommended daily intake for each essential vitamin and mineral.

Naturally flavoured

Rootana and ingredients Rootana and ingredients

Unlike most meal shakes, Rootana has carefully avoided low-quality carbohydrates, including maltodextrin.​

These refined carbohydrates are added to many competitor shakes as they are a low cost way to improve flavour and texture.

Instead, Rootana uses the world’s healthiest carbohydrate source … oats. Which are high in fibre, protein, and healthy fats. A perfect alternative.

Rootana has also avoided artificial sweeteners such as stevia and sucralose. Artificial sweeteners are added to keep calories low and provide a sweet taste. However, many people dislike the artificial taste and find it too sweet. There are also people who suffer from bloating and digestive issues when they consume artificial sweeteners.

Every Rootana flavour has a natural oaty flavour. Original flavour tastes just like lightly sweetened oatmeal. Cacao (Dark Chocolate for US) combines the taste of natural dark chocolate with a lightly sweetened oat flavour. Vanilla (US only) combines a delicious natural vanilla flavour with the taste of lightly sweetened oats.

Rootana is also free from animal products, providing you with a completely plant-based meal shake. Perfect for vegans, or anyone who wants to live more sustainably.

Easy to Digest

Thanks to oat flour, flaxseed, guar gum, and xanthan gum, Rootana is packed full of fibre. This makes it easy to digest whilst also helping to improve your gut microbiome. There are many health benefits related to this.

Free From Artificial Sweeteners 

Rootana does not use artificial sweeteners. It avoids sucralose and stevia (two sweeteners commonly used by other brands). Instead, Rootana uses a small amount of natural coconut sugar to provide sweetness. This is great for anyone who prefers to avoid artificial sweeteners for health, digestion or taste reasons.​

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

I lead a hectic lifestyle and rarely have time to spend preparing healthy meals for myself. This led me to complete meal shakes. Over the years, I’ve tried them all.

I loved the concept of meal shakes, but I wasn’t happy with the shakes themselves. Many of them were too low in calories to adequately replace a meal. Or they were packed full of refined carbohydrates and artificial sweeteners.​

I felt that I could do better and decided to develop a nutritionally optimised shake without compromise.

By working with a dedicated team of nutritionists and food scientists, over a 2-year period, we developed Rootana. A meal shake that is completely free from artificial sweeteners and refined carbohydrates and one that is packed full of healthy real-food ingredients.

Rootana is a perfectly balanced complete meal, vegan-friendly, high in protein, and it can be prepared in a matter of seconds. It provides you with all the vitamins and minerals you need to thrive, and it avoids using the ingredients so many meal shakes include that have no nutritional value.

Frequently asked questions

Rootana has been designed to provide a natural taste rather than an artificial one. For this reason, we use a tiny amount of naturally occurring coconut sugar to provide sweetness instead of using sucralose or stevia. The predominant taste of Rootana comes from the high-quality oat flour used in the formula. Rootana can also be blended with any number of healthy ingredients to create your own tasty shakes.

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.

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.
