Frequently Asked Questions
What is plant-based (vegan) protein?
Protein is an essential macro-nutrient, considered a building block for healthy bodies, muscles, and organs by providing sustained energy, vital for overall health and well-being. Many people worry they aren’t reaching their dietary targets of macro and micro-nutrients, which is why we developed a complete solution to support a healthy diet. Good.All Protein contains a unique 'double threat' blend of pea protein and fava bean protein, along with superfoods designed to support essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant requirements.
A well-planned diet is essential regardless of what ethos or diet you employ, inclusive of vegetables, fruit, nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. Good.All Protein is designed to be an additional source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants source for your body's needs.
How does protein work?
Protein is made up of amino acids. When we consume protein, our digestive system breaks the protein molecules down into constituent amino acids, which are then absorbed by our bodies and used to create over 30,000 different proteins. These proteins are used for antibodies, hormones, enzymes to transport molecules, and are essential to our bodies functioning optimally.
Proteins are defined by the amino acids that they contain and the sequence in which the acids occur. There are two categories of proteins; essential amino acids, which are obtained by the food we digest, and non-essential amino acids which are manufactured by our bodies.
Both types of proteins work together to ensure the body is manufacturing all of the proteins we require for daily function and the repair of the body.
Plants naturally contain all nine of the essential amino acids. One of the great components of Good. All Protein is that it contains a variety of nuts, seeds, and superfoods, which add a variety of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, making it optimal compared to a single protein source in isolation.
How much protein do I need?
The Recommended Dietary Intake, or RDI, varies based on a person’s gender, weight, lifestyle, age and energy requirements.
As a guide, government regulations state for:
- Men is 0.84 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day
- Women is 0.75 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day.
This equates to approximately 56 grams of protein per day for an average male and 46 grams of protein daily for an average female.
What are the health benefits of vegan protein?
Dietary patterns across the globe have evolved over the years, with many people sourcing plant-based alternatives, with evidence suggesting a reduced risk of metabolic syndrome, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancers.
One of the major drivers for plant protein alternatives such as Good.All Protein is that it contains no cholesterols found in animal protein and no lactose which can be an allergen for many individuals.

Whey Vs Plant-Based?
Both whey and vegan protein supplements offer nutritional benefits to boost energy, and aid in muscle repair and overall health management. Plant-based protein is a good option for people that may suffer digestive discomfort when consuming whey, which is why plant-based protein is a great option for many people, vegan or not.
Good.All Protein contains all nine essential amino acids, giving it a comparative protein profile to whey varieties. Another benefit seen in our blends is that as it doesn’t rely on a single protein source, we can harness the nutritional profile of two plant proteins, and blend them with nuts, seeds, and superfoods to reach not only protein, but other RDI’s (such as vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids) essential for health and wellbeing.
What should I look for in a vegan protein powder?
Our philosophy at Good.All Protein is to meet overall RDI nutritional requirements, allowing you to harness your health and fitness goals, not only your protein intake.
You should consume something that appeals to your personal taste preference, blends easily, and is palatable. Traditional protein powders are often laden with artificial colours, flavours, fillers, and sweeteners, which should be avoided. We recommend that the nutritional profile of proteins should contain biodiversity, which Good.All Protein achieves by blending multiple protein sources with other nutritional ingredients, to add a variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Good.All Protein advocates for products that are organic where possible, and made in Australia using the highest quality and sustainable ingredients.
We want to provide our Good.All Protein customers with happy tastebuds, healthy bodies, and a healthier planet.
Can I use Good.All protein when pregnant or lactating?
The ingredients in Good.All Protein are safe for pregnant and lactating women, and are packed with all-natural vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants to help you along your journey.
However, as with any supplements, please seek advice and guidance from your healthcare provider.
Nutrition guidelines state that while breastfeeding women should consume a minimum of 25 grams of additional protein per day, therefore supplementation may help busy mums achieve their dietary recommendations.
How do I use GOOD.ALL PROTEIN?
Our powders have been formulated by specialists that dissolve easily in water, taste delicious, and are 100% natural. We recommend using 30g protein powder to 300ml of chilled filtered water. Our protein powders are suitable for everyday use as a pre or post-workout supplement or to add to a healthy balanced diet to support adequate nutritional needs.
The team behind Good.All Protein are big fans of blending straight up, adding to a smoothie with your choice of fruit, acai bowls, or even baking!
