I’m always intrigued and immensely interested in trying new, organic supplements. I learned of this brand, “OMG”, after searching on Twitter for new, high quality options. I was immediately impressed with all of the literature I had found on these products. Here is a bit of information about this company and what their mission:
“Who We Are:

I was lucky enough to sample two of OMG’s superfood powders and even their newly created quinoa based protein based powder.
“The first ever quinoa based protein powder. Our formula is organic, vegan, delicious and practical to use. It’s for people who want a protein boost with superfoods like quinoa, hemp, coconut and sacha inchi. It boasts no sugar added, non-GMO, vegan, 100% organic, gluten free, allergen free and with a delicious taste. We do our best to bring the raw materials directly from the source; we import the quinoa and sacha inchi directly from the producers in Peru. There’s simply never been a product quite like this one so help us bring it to the marketplace and be among the first to try it!
The new product will have 10.5 grams of organic protein per 30g serving. It will be available both as a stand-up pouch with 15 servings per package and a box with 12 single serve pouches. It the convenient way to superfood your day with added protein at home or on-the-go.
The combination of ingredients makes it easy to digest. It is the perfect complement to the diet of vegans and vegetarians or people with intolerance to other sources of protein. The powder can be mixed into cereals, smoothies, shakes, bars, and more. But we can’t do it without you so donate and pick your pre-order today!”
My Description & Thoughts:
I feel lucky to have sampled a serving of this protein that is still being tweaked and formulated. It is excellent; it tastes earthy, delicious and satisfying. I mixed it with almond milk in a blender bottle and it was delicious. I am a huge fan of plant based proteins and am excited for OMG to generate more of this power protein concoction!

“Add the Antioxidant Powder to a smoothie, dressing, or your daily granola and superfood your day! Maqui Berry has one of the highest amount of antioxidants of any fruit known. Antioxidants may help to remove free radicals from the body, that could lead to a decrease in cell damage, and ultimately assist in the anti-aging process. In addition to the antioxidants from Maqui Berries, our Antioxidant Maqui Berry superblend contains several other amazing ingredients like acai powder and a green tea extract, both of which have beneficial compounds. The green tea extract scored more than 10,000 ORAC units per gram! Together, these ingredients give you powerful and tasty boost for your daily intake of antioxidants.”
My Description & Thoughts:
I’d never heard of this berry before, but it sounds nutritionally dense and full of antioxidants that help keep our cells in tip top shape. It tastes rich and reminds me a lot of a blueberry mixed with a blackberry. I added this Maqui berry powder to my smoothie (with vanilla protein powder) and it was a nice, fruity compliment & antioxidant punch with the protein.
I loved trying this product and I love how easy it is to consume–simply mixed into my daily smoothie/drink. Berry yummy!
“Pomegranate has been consumed for centuries for its magnificent properties. With its high quantity of vitamins, it may help strengthen our bodies’ immune systems.* Our pomegranate superblend combines ingredients like Camu Camu powder, maqui berry powder, and a booster that contains Curry, Guava, Lemon, Sesbania, Amla, Holy Basil and Annato extracts, providing substantial amounts of beneficial nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, iron, and potassium, just to name a few. Just add the Vitamin powder to a yogurt, shake or any other food in need of vitamins and tasty boost! You won’t be disappointed.
My Description & Thoughts:
This product is similar in texture to the Maqui berry powder and has a sweet, fruit flavor. I am slightly biased to the pomegranate flavor because I am familiar with it and find it delectable.
Like the Maqui powder, this Pomegranate powder goes well in a smoothie or simply with almond/coconut milk. I see it as adding a healthy vitamin boost to my drink. Both of these products have been in the rotation when making my smoothies and I’ve been very happy with both of them.
These OMG products are a dream to individuals who are on the constant search for plant based foods to supplement the current diet.
