Refined with precision, powered by nature

Setting new standards for protein ingredients

Understory’s marine protein peptides mark a change in how we approach nutrition. Our ingredient purity is confirmed through extensive heavy metal analysis and maintained by our superior quality standards. Targeted studies scientifically validate its quality and efficacy, highlighting our dedication to excellence.

Single-source complete protein

Understory Gamut, our first ingredient, is a marine protein peptide derived from Antarctic Krill (Euphasia Superba), refined through our innovative and patented process. Our ingredient features a high-quality protein composition, including a PDCAAS score of 1.0 and a DIAAS score of 125.

Our ingredient is characterized by its purity. It features a low amount of carbohydrates, no fat and a protein content above 90%. Additionally, it contains 8% leucine and more than 40% essential amino acids (EAAs).

Rich in naturally occurring minerals

With naturally occurring minerals such as calcium, selenium, and magnesium, Understory provides benefits beyond the protein profile. Minerals that are ingested together with peptides, or bound to peptides, have been shown to have increased bioavailability. Calcium is proven to be an essential mineral for maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Selenium has been shown to protect cells from oxidative stress, while magnesium has been shown to contribute to metabolic function.

Small peptides, big impact

At the cutting edge of nutritional science, Understory introduces a protein ingredient that raises the bar for bioavailability and digestibility. Utilizing a patented hydrolysis process on our raw material, we can bring forward an ingredient whit over 85% of the peptides having a molecular weight below 1000 Da. As a result, this enables exceptional solubility, improved digestibility, and consistent stability under varied temperatures and pH levels.
