SISTERS, Ore., Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Laird Superfood (NYSE American: LSF) is continuing its focus on plant-based superfood products with the introduction of its RENEW Plant-Based Protein powder. Laird Superfood's RENEW Plant-Based Protein features 19 grams of plant-based protein plus 9 naturally occurring essential amino acids. It has no rice or pea protein, or preservatives.
"We set out to create an effective plant-based protein powder that is easier on the digestive system than the ones currently in the market," said Paul Hodge, CEO and co-founder of Laird Superfood. "At the same time, we wanted to develop a plant-based protein powder that has all nine essential aminos that our bodies don't produce, so we got to work on a product that we believe is the ultimate plant-based protein - made from a blend of seed proteins and functional mushrooms. It's a perfect, complementary addition to Laird Superfood's line-up of plant-based coffee creamers, hydration products, beverage enhancing supplements, roasted and instant coffees, teas and hot chocolate, and harvest snacks."
