Smoothie King Gladiator
Kenner, LA – Providing the latest in original nutritional products, today Smoothie King made available its private-label Gladiator™ Low Carb Meal Replacement – a low carbohydrate alternative for fueling muscle growth and increasing energy production. The Gladiator™ Low Carb Meal Replacement adds to the array of nutritional smoothies, supplements and snacks that Smoothie King offers.
“Our Gladiator Low Carb Meal Replacement is specifically designed for maximum protein absorption and digestibility, which is essential for muscle gain or maintenance,” said Steve Kuhnau, founder of Smoothie King. “Our product ensures that an individual receives high intake of quality protein without having to consume an exorbitant amount of carbohydrates and fats, leading to lean muscle gain.”
With one gram of carbohydrates and 45 grams of protein per serving, the Gladiator Low Carb Meal Replacement is made with the highest quality protein -- whey isolate -- typically found in meats, poultry, eggs and fish. The whey isolate is processed using a cross-flow micro filtration (CFM) method, a gentler method of processing protein that does not dramatically alter the protein from its natural state. The CFM method enables the whey isolate to maintain ease of digestion and absorption of the protein, a critical component for building and repairing muscle tissue.
The Gladiator Low Carb Meal Replacement, which can be mixed with water or milk, contains the following:
- Cross-Flow Micro Filtered whey isolate, processed to prevent damage to the protein to maintain ease of digestion and efficiency of absorption;
- Egg white protein, absorbed slowly and continuously by the body, ensuring maximum absorption when combined with the faster absorbing whey protein;
- Aminogen® Protein Digestive Enzyme, increases amino acids in the blood by as much as 55 percent to fuel muscles’ needs;
- Vitamin and Mineral Complex, contains additional amounts of vitamin C, B-vitamins and vitamin E for enhanced immune protection and energy production.
Developed by the Smoothie King Research and Development Team, the Gladiator Low Carb Meal Replacement is the second product under Smoothie King’s Gladiator™ line. Last year, the company launched its Gladiator™ Smoothie – a protein-rich smoothie made with the same unique CFM whey isolate and egg white protein blend found in the Gladiator Low Carb Meal Replacement product.
The Gladiator formula is available in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry and will be available at Smoothie King stores nationwide.About Smoothie King Franchises, Inc.
