Who we are
When our founders saw firsthand the toll overstressed lives and bad eating habits had on people, they wanted to create products that enabled people to live healthier lives . We quickly discovered that Koia’s mission of “powering people through plants” was closely aligned with a concept called “blue zones”.
Blue Zone: Region of the world where people live much longer than average.
There are five blue zones in the world, and they share common characteristics:
- Fueled by plant based diets
- Thrive on daily exercise
- Build strong social connections
- Have a “plan de vida” or reason for getting up every day.
Our name is inspired by one of these blue zones, the lush Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Plant-powered Koia brings these values to life and sustains you through your day.
What is Koia?
Koia is the delicious way to power your day by providing the ideal balance of protein, fiber, and healthy fats to give you stable, long-lasting energy.
Koia is also:
Protein requires more energy to digest and metabolize than carbohydrates and fats, and plant protein digests slowly which means it keeps you satisfied. Koia’s blend of plant proteins provides a high-quality source of protein with the benefits of additional vitamins and minerals like calcium and iron from whole food ingredients.
Koia contains a complete essential amino acid blend which supports increased lean muscle mass, recovery, growth and maintenance. Our blend of brown rice, pea and hemp protein contains all 9 essential amino acids in one bottle, providing a great source of high-quality protein.
At 4 grams of sugar per serving, Koia is the perfect low sugar option to prevent energy crashes from high sugar consumption, with additional benefits from the plant-based proteins to stabilize blood sugars for optimal fuel for our bodies
Delicious option for those who have lactose intolerances or dairy allergies. Protein with no growth hormones or antibiotics!
Koia is non-GMO Project verified, which means we use ingredients that are never genetically modified.
We use alternative sources of protein, brown rice, pea and hemp, to avoid phytoestrogens in our products.
A delicious option for those with gluten sensitivities.
A great source of protein for everyone, but perfect for those following a plant-based diet! Plant proteins are easier to digest and are low in saturated fats and cholesterol.
Koia also contains 7g fiber (that’s 28% of your daily needs!) per bottle.
High fiber slows digestion which means longer lasting energy and our fiber is from chicory root fiber: a prebiotic ingredient that promotes the healthy gut bacteria (probiotics) in your system!
The combination of a high protein and fiber profile also makes it a satisfying snack choice to provide sustainable energy that supports all nutrition and health goals.
