P-nuff Crunch contains proteins from 3 plant-derived sources: peanuts, navy beans, and brown Rice. It is the first puff snack with 5g of “complete” plant-based protein (per 1oz serving). “Complete” protein, also described as high quality protein, provides all 9 essential amino acids necessary for building and repairing muscle tissue, providing energy, and performing other essential body functions. Complete proteins are necessary for proper growth in children.
The peanut protein in P-nuff Crunch contain high levels of BCAA (Branched Chain Amino Acids) similar to those found in high quality proteins such as chicken breast, steak and tuna. BCAAs are important because they are metabolized in the muscle and therefore provide quick energy to the working muscles and reduces muscle breakdown. Additionally, P-nuff Crunch contains a high quality brown rice protein which has been shown to be as effective as whey for muscle building and repair after exercise, due to the high digestibility of the amino acid, Leucine. Leucine is the single most important amino acid that initiates protein synthesis for muscle repair and muscle building before, during and after light activity or exercise.
