How To Take ProBiotein
Eating Fiber Daily
The American Dietetic Association (ADA) recommends that adults eat a minimum of 20 to 35 grams (0.70 to 1.23 oz) of fiber per day. But American adults are only getting roughly 50% of the fiber they need – about 12 to 18 grams (0.42 to 0.63 oz) per day. ProBiotein adds about 3 grams of additional dietary fiber daily for adults.
Kids should eat an amount of fiber equal to their age plus 5, so a 4 year old should eat 9 grams (0.31 oz) daily. Yet American kids often get only 20% of the fiber they should. ProBiotein adds about 1.5 grams of additional dietary fiber daily for kids.
Ancient humans ate 50 to 75 and even up to 100 grams (3.5 oz) of fiber per day. So getting too much fiber's not a big worry. All of us can, and should, eat more fiber. It's been a natural part of our human history.
It Tastes . . . Healthy
ProBiotein is a granular non-GMO powder. It has the taste of whole grains. Because it's a granular powder, we recommend you add it into food or beverages. You can take it any time of day, with or without meals. The daily amount can be taken all at one time, or in portions throughout the day. There are no sweeteners, artificial flavors or anything artificial added. Just whole, natural goodness, which tends to taste, well, natural. And healthy.
Adults should start with 1 level teaspoon (1 tsp) per day, for a week. Then take 2 tsp per day, for a week. Finally, in the third week and ongoing, take 3 tsp (3 teaspoons = 1 Tablespoon) per day. Children 3 to 12 should take half the daily amount. If you experience any trouble in taking the daily amount, take half the recommended amount and increase slowly over time.
A tasty and convenient way to get your ProBiotein® on the go, is to grab one of our 4 delicious flavors of MicroBiome Bars and pop them in your pocket, purse or pack. Choco-Cherry Walnut, P-Nutty Cranberry, Razz-Apple Almond or Sunny-Saskatoon Berry. Each 40g bar has half the daily recommended amount of ProBiotein®. Have one mid-morning and mid-afternoon to stay microbiome strong.
Mix Into Foods, Drinks
Add ProBiotein to cold or warm foods, smoothies or juices. Use as a topping on cereal or oatmeal. It goes especially great in applesauce. See Recipes for more suggestions. Easiest and fastest? Add to orange juice and whip with a little portable latte frothing mixer. No blender to clean.
Cooking With ProBiotein
You can also cook with ProBiotein (breads, pizza crusts, sauces, baked goods). The enzymes won't be as effective, but you'll still get the healthy benefits of ProBiotein's prebiotic and dietary fibers, plus omega-3 and amino acids.
One nationally recognized bread expert tested ProBiotein by adding it to his bread mix and commented, "This is the best tasting bread I have ever eaten." That was exciting news. Great taste and healthy too. So try experimenting. Substitute 3 Tablespoons (3 Tbsp) for an equal amount of flour in bread mixes, or do the same with 1/4 cup in muffin mixes. Enjoy.
