Who we are
When our founders saw firsthand the toll over-stressed lives and bad eating habits had on people, they wanted to create products that enabled people to live healthier lives . In researching what it meant to live a healthy life, they learned about regions in the world where people lived much longer than others due to healthy behaviors, such as eating a predominantly plant based diet, making movement part of every day, and being socially active.
Our name is inspired by one of these places, 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.
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.
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.
At 4-6 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
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.
