Have you heard of ProTings yet? I recently received 4 bags of ProTings to sample and review and I was pleasantly surprised by the yummy flavors and the simple ingredients. These are a perfect snack for when you crave something crunchy with flavor but still want something healthy. They have four different flavors: Spicy Chili Lime, Tangy Southern BBQ, Toasted Sea Salt, & Zestyy Nacho.
ProTings are packed full of protein using pea protein. I pulled this information directly from their website, which I love that they describe their ingredients and why they use them and how they are good for us.
“Protein is essential to good health. Pea protein is said to be one of the most perfect proteins for human consumption. Its benefits over both animal and other vegetable proteins include:
•Ease of digestion
•Lack of allergens
•Ideal amino acids for sports
Perhaps most importantly for sports enthusiasts, pea protein contains an ideal combination of essential amino acids for sports performance:
•Lysine, for balanced nitrogen levels in muscles
•Arginine promotes muscle metabolism and a healthy heart
•Glutamine helps restore nitrogen balance after a heavy workout
•Leucine, isoleucine and valine (branched-chain amino acids) help maintain tissues during exercise
Studies have recently shown that pea protein may be an effective way to maintain healthy blood pressure and kidney levels.”
I think my favorite flavor was the Spicy Chili Lime flavor. I like the Toasted Sea Salt just because it has minimal ingredients, but the Chili Lime flavor is so unique and flavorful!
I also love that these “chips” contain flax seeds…you can even see the whole flax seeds in each chip! I use flax seeds every day in my smoothies, breakfast bars and protein bars. They are a great way to get some omega’s!
If you are looking for a healthy protein packed snack then these ProTings are a great choice! They are GMO-free, gluten-Free, & vegan. Oh, and did I mention they have 15 grams of protein?! I also love their story of how they started ProTings!
Which flavor would you prefer?
