I am so glad that Perfect Supplements started making this plant protein powder. All of their ingredients are certified USDA organic. In addition, they test for the presence of heavy metals (which are known contaminants of protein powders). Refreshingly, Perfect Supplements discloses its 3rd party test report on the website, meaning we do not even need to ask for it.
It is important to note that they tested their organic plant protein powder by sending a sample to an independent lab as opposed to relying on their manufacturer’s tests. Also, the heavy metal levels are the lowest I have seen so far among the tests done by an independent party.
According to the test report, the heavy metal levels are as follows:
Mercury: <0.001 ppm
Lead: 0.018 ppm
Arsenic: 0.036 ppm
Cadmium: 0.077 ppm
Let’s discuss what this means, taking lead as an example. Per the California Prop. 65, lead intake should not exceed 0.5 mcg per day. According to Perfect Supplements, the daily intake of the powder should be 1 scoop (27 g). 0.018 ppm translates into 0.486 mcg of lead, which is under the California limit. The other heavy metals are the same.
In addition, the protein powder is certified organic, vegan, nut-free, gluten-free, and free of any additives. Also, it offers 9 essential amino acids and a high level of magnesium.
In sum, I am thrilled to be able to tell you about this wonderful product.
