When it comes to plant-based nutrition for sports, I’ve always been a “whole food first” kind of guy.

I’d rather eat dates than energy gels, and prefer to drink smoothies over sports drinks. But what about protein?

Same here. I look to food first, but if I’m going to take a supplement — or give one to my kids, two young plant-based athletes themselves — I want it to be as close to real food as possible.

But... what I found when I looked around at the plant-based protein options was appalling.

Matt Frazier, Founder and Author of No Meat Athlete

For one, they didn’t taste anything like real food — always either sweetened with pure sugar or a “natural” sweetener like stevia or monkfruit that, to me, tastes anything but natural.

As I dug deeper, it got worse. There are no requirements for clarity on supplement labels, and I heard whispers of brands that advertise “complete protein blends” while actually using 99% of the cheapest protein and only “blend” the others into the remaining 1%.

Then, I learned that the heavy metal content — arsenic, cadmium, and lead — in many of the popular brands is downright scary.

The last thing I’d want is to think I’m doing something to help my kids perform at their best, while actually exposing them to dangerous carcinogens, every single day.

Why, I wondered, is it so hard to find a clean plant-based protein?

It’s not like we’re looking for a mega-dose of protein here. Just a moderate amount to give me the peace of mind that their plant-based diet is actually an advantage in sports, not the opposite.

There had to be a better way.

And this, as you might have guessed, is what led me to do what I’ve done with Complement and Complement Plus before this — to work with the No Meat Athlete audience to create a better product than what existed before.

That’s how Complement Protein — a cleaner, safer, simpler plant-based protein, and one I can feel good about giving to my family — was born.

Questions? We Got Answers!

What's the serving size and how much protein does it contain?

One serving of Complement Protein is 22 grams (3 tbsp), and contains 15 grams of complete plant protein.

What is the full nutritional profile? How much Carbs or Fat?

Below is the confirmed Nutrition Facts panel for Complement Protein, V1.

How should I use Complement Protein?

We designed Complement Protein to be versatile - meaning you can add it to a smoothie, mix it with plant milk or other drink, or even use it for baking! (Please share whatever you create with it by tagging us on IG @LoveComplement :)

Does it contain any allergens? 

Complement Protein is soy-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free! (And obviously, free of any other animal-based ingredients.) It does contain peas and almonds , which some people may be sensitive to.

Is it certified organic? 

YES! All the individual ingredients are fully organic and we're happy to announce that we were able to complete the organic certification for the Complement Protein in time for the first batch as well!

Is Complement Protein made from whole foods?

Complement Protein is made from USDA certified 100% organic ingredients, which are ground into a fine powder. Some of these are “protein isolates”. While we always prefer “whole foods”, it is necessary for us to include isolates to ensure that we deliver the ideal texture and protein quantity in a small serving (less than two tablespoons).

How does it taste?

Complement Protein does NOT contain any flavors, natural or artificial, nor any sweeteners — it is a neutral blend of complete plant protein. We believe that makes it the cleanest, most versatile option — and allows you to mix it with whatever whole food ingredient tastes best to you.

I heard that organic plant protein powders have the highest levels of heavy metals. Is this true? 

Heavy Metals are a natural part of our environment and, unfortunately, because they exist in the Earth’s soil, they end up in organic fruits and vegetables. Some recent research seems to indicate that many vegan protein powders contain high levels of heavy metals, like lead, cadmium, and arsenic. That’s one of the reasons we created Complement Protein -- so we could be absolutely sure that it exceeds the stringent California Prop 65 standards, which are up to 1,000 times lower than levels still deemed safe by the FDA. We only create products that we are comfortable giving our young children, so we go beyond even what government entities suggest to ensure safety.

Does Complement Protein ship internationally?

Yes! Complement Protein is available to order in Canada, the EU, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Let us know if your country is missing from the list, so we can check the shipping costs for you. (And please keep in mind that international orders may incur extra import fees at delivery. This is country-specific, and out of our control. There's very little we can do to assist with packages lost or detained by customs.)

If you are an international customer with an existing Complement Plus subscription and would like to combine shipping going forward, please let us know after ordering so we can adjust your delivery schedule accordingly.

What if I change my mind?

You are 100% covered by our money-back guarantee if you feel like you don't want to wait for the first batch anymore (just remember that the presale price WILL be going away after this week).

How does a subscription work? And can I change it?

By choosing to subscribe to Complement Protein, you're locking in a price that's 10% lower than the regular presale offer - for life! You can choose your delivery frequency when you order (for example, if you get a single bag, you'll probably want it delivered every month, but if you get three, you might want to get your order every three months instead), and adjust it at any time through your dashboard, or by contacting us - we're always happy to help.

There are no minimums or cancellation penalties - you can skip, change or cancel your standing order at any time. Just keep in mind that cancelling it means you'll lose access to presale pricing, while skipping an upcoming order means your price stays the same even though you skip a delivery (or two). Again, this can be done through your dashboard, or by sending us an email.

The Complement™ Guarantee

We want you to love Complementing as much as we do. If within 30 days of receiving your order, you're not absolutely thrilled with Complement Protein just send us back the bag and we'll refund 100% of your purchase price, no questions asked. And of course, if you decide you don't want to wait anymore while the first batch is being produced and want your money back, you're covered as well.
 
We're here to strengthen this movement that we so strongly believe in — so we're not happy until you are.

Easy!

I used to make frothy shakes in the morning with frozen fruit, flax, chia, etc. It was time consuming to make my shake have nutrition on top of all the extra added ingredients. Now I just mix complement protein with room temp water and drink it. It's easy to drink and not harsh on my stomach. Thank you so much for making this!

Solid choice in vegan protein powder! 4.5 Stars!

PROS: LOVE the fact that there are no sweeteners of any kind, and the ingredient list is clean, as I have significant dietary restrictions. I can feel good about using Complement, and since it doesn't have any added flavor, it works well with any food. Today, I tried it shaken in my blender bottle with a little water and oat milk, (how I'll likely use it while traveling) and it was delicious!! Blends up beautifully in smoothies with frozen fruit, greens, whatever you fancy. AND, I appreciate the compostable/biodegradable packaging immensely!!

CONS (and why I deducted a 1/2 star): In thinner, non-frozen mixes, there is a slightly noticeable grittiness to it, but not so much that it's unpleasant, or a deterrent. When I mix it with a frother with just H2O (another travel method), there were a few clumps that didn't mix in, and it caked up in my frother whisk. As some other reviewers mentioned, I had 1 of the 3 bags arrive with a small hole in it, which allowed a surprising amount of product to leak out, and the ziplock style closure gets filled with product and won't actually zip closed. But, I transferred it to a perfect-fitting glass canister, which works quite well.
I don't mind the missing scoop in the least; I seem to have dozens of them around the house left over from all the other products I've purchased, and I don't always use the manufacturer's "serving size" of protein powder, anyway. With Complement Protein, I just use a measuring spoon or a coffee scoop - easy!

Awesome

I purchased this protein powder after hearing Matt talk about wanting a little extra protein for his kids. I’ve added it to nice cream and smoothies and I love it. It doesn’t add a chalky texture or a funky taste. My 6 year old didn’t complain about this protein powder like she has other ones, so I call this powder a win!

Great!

I love Complement. All the protein I need to help my body recover from challenging runs with none of the fillers and sweeteners I don’t need. Complement mixes well in smoothies without any chalkiness.

Tastes bad. Very dissatisfied. I ruined my smoothie.
