Protes Gluten Free Product Review

Now called "Protes"

WHAT ARE PROTES?'s imagine a pea protein joined forces with a triangular crispy potato chip with delicious seasonings. Then imagine the name "pro" as in protein and "ting" as in things and merge them into something fun and catchy. I asked this question to co-founder Ryan at a food show. I liked it. Ryan and co-founder Kirk are based in Brooklyn, NY.  Protings are for healthy peeps and chip lovers who seek an alternative but love food and eating smart. No more empty nutrition while snacking in-between meals. Crunch on Protings at the gym after a workout, at the office, on the bus/train or home wherever you're hungry to avoid binging. 

Protings are jam packed with pea protein, flax seed, sunflower oil, fairly low in sat, low calorie and very low in sugar. You get your crunch fix, it looks certainly like a chip, and it gives you the healthy ingredients and protein that you NEVER get from a chip. Chips usually are a guilty pleasure and it's only recent that some chips have gotten somewhat nutrient dense. I'm stoked about these Protings and excited to see what's next for them. 

On their website, the nutritional information can be reviewed for each product by label. The ingredients are mostly simple. You can pronounce and recognize all of them and not feel alarmed. Start shopping for Protings here. No worries!

Protein is a true asset to healthy living especially for active individuals. Pea protein is one of the most ideal vegetable based proteins for human consumption experts say.  Pea protein possess benefits over both animal and other vegetable proteins including digestion, allergen free and amino acids for sport activity.



Jam packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals, and essential vitamins. Flax is a top vegetable source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which have been linked to maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol in the blood. Studies show that diets rich in fiber, monounsaturated fatty acids, and omega-3 fatty acids help support a healthy cardiovascular system by favoring a healthy blood lipid profile. Flax  seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E.  Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain skin integrity and preserve youthfulness.


Sunflowers are awesome and they're rarely used in our foods. Tisk tisk. Sunflower oil has numerous qualities and studies have shown that it can assist in maintaining a healthy nervous system, good digestion, and it is great for producing energy as a result of the Vitamin B quantity found in sunflower oil among much more properties. Eat more sunflower based foods!
