AUSSIELENT LOW-CARB/KETO

Thank you so much to everybody who completed our keto survey.  Some of the top comments:

Fantastic idea especially for hikers or time/space travellers
• Please be mindful of the taste. I like the vanilla and chocolate aussielent but Body tastes like Satan’s armpit.
• Please make it cheap for Canadians

On the basis of this feedback we have developed two new low-carb products suitable for a keto diet – a powder and a ready-to-drink.  You can see some sneak peeks of the betas of these products over on our instagram.

We will be providing two complementary products with differing carbohydrate levels – so they can be mixed and matched according to each user’s requirements.  At least one of the products will be vegan and gluten free. Coming very soon! If the stars align, we may even have something for you before Xmas :). PS Flavouring is chocolate (we decided not to go with Satan’s armpit).

A SHORT STROLL (ACROSS AUSTRALIA)

Human: Hey boy, wanna go for a walk?

Dog: YES!! READY! WHERE WE GO?

Human: Oh, just from the bottom of Tasmania to the top of Queensland. We will live out of my backpack and sleep in a tent. Should be home in about 6 months.

Yes, intrepid aussielent customer Patrick and his canine companion Bear (above) are about to set off to walk the length of Australia. Powered partially by aussielent, their journey is expected to take 6 months and cover around 4500km. We are looking forward to following Patrick and Bear’s journey and hope to bring you updates on the way.  Good luck Patrick and Bear!

aussielent was recently featured on The Urban List, where editor Clare Acheson gave our products a spin. 

And in case you missed it, Lifehacker Australia, recently did a blog series reporting on their experience of an all-aussielent diet.  Two brave souls ate nothing but aussielent’s RTD for a week and  live- blogged the results. You can read about their experiences here.

AUSSIELENT LOW-CARB/KETO

Over the last year we’ve received loads of requests for a low-carb aussielent option, potentially a ketogenic version. A ketogenic diet (keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis which enables you to become very efficient at burning fat for energy. For some people, eating this way causes a reduction in blood sugar and insulin levels, enabling weight loss with stable blood sugar and a range of other health benefits. One drawback is that a keto diet can be a hassle to prepare and the ingredients can be pricy.

We plan to offer a selection of keto products to fill the gaps for people on a keto diet who can’t or don’t want to prepare food, or aren’t at home at meal times. Or if you’re not on a keto diet, maybe you just want the occasional low-carb meal.

Over the past few months we’ve been in development for two new products – a keto powder along with a keto ready to drink bottle. If you’re on a keto diet, or interested in a keto soylent, we would love your feedback before we go ahead and put these babies into full production.

Check out the sample product details below and please click through below to take our survey. The survey takes <1 minute and you’ll get a code at the end to use with your first keto order :). Feel free to let us know if you have any other suggestions.

New website – new packaging!

Well, you may have noticed that our site has had a bit of a facelift! Our new site coincides with our lovely new packaging for our products which we are rolling out from today to introduce a fresh new look for our products. We hope you find our new site easy to navigate, and a bit easier on the eye than our old site! It should be faster and much more user friendly – however if you do have any issues with navigation or functionality please do let us know.

available from today – a brand new aussielent blend

Our new yummy vanilla offers a lovely smooth consistency with low GI properties and no added sugar! This brand spanking new blend is very similar in mouthfeel to our new smoother chocolate blend, but with a delicious vanilla taste instead. This blend offers:

– a smooth consistency
– a further refined vitamin and mineral balance
– and, best of all, no added sugar!

Like the new choc blend, this blend utilises a low GI tapioca maltodextrin.  This maltodextrin is a modified tapioca starch and is quite different to the standard corn maltodextrin commonly used in bodybuilding and sports products. This results in a smoother mouthfeel while retaining low GI properties.   Sample packs are available. Give it a go – we think it’s our best blend ever :).

Ingredients List:
Oat Flour, Tapioca Maltodextrin, Whey Protein (16%), Soy Flour, Rice Flour, Soy Lecithin, Vanilla Flavour, Salt, Vitamin & Mineral Mix (Calcium, Potassium, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Niacin, Zinc, Vitamin B-5, Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, Riboflavin, Iodine, Folate, Molybdenum, Chromium, Biotin, Vitamin D, Vitamin B-12)
