Q&A: The top 20 questions about F-Factor 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders Answered

1) WHAT IS 20/20 FIBER/PROTEIN POWDER? 

F-Factor 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powder is completely unlike anything else available today. Designed to make living on F-Factor even easier and more delicious than it already is, it is technically a protein powder with far more fiber than any other protein powder available to date (whey protein typically has only 1g per serving whereas F-Factor has 20g!). It has endless applications (skip ahead to #8 to read what those are) and has quickly become a valuable solution for the general population to meet their daily fiber needs. It’s really a hero ingredient for anyone looking to manage their weight or improve their health.

2) WHY 20/20? 

Because THAT’S how much fiber and protein we managed to get into each serving! The 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders pack in 20 grams of fat-fighting fiber to boost metabolism along with 20 grams of organic muscle-building protein. With macros like these, the 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders satisfy hunger longer than your standard protein-only based powders—you can meet more than half your daily fiber needs with just ONE serving!*  

3) TELL ME MORE ABOUT ITS NUTRITION CONTENT… 

In addition to the 20g of fiber, and 20g of protein, one serving of 20/20 Fiber/Protein powder (2 scoops, or a 1/2 cup) contains 150 calories, 1.5g fat (.5g sat fat), 23g carb and 1g sugar. Each serving, therefore, contains just 3g net carbs.

4) WHAT’S IN THIS PRODUCT? 

Like the name suggests, the F-Factor 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders are made with fiber and protein. The protein is an organic whey protein concentrate, and the fiber is a partially hydrolyzed guar gum, which is a prebiotic fiber. The 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders also contain natural flavors and are sweetened with natural sweeteners: stevia (steviol glycosides) and monk fruit extract. All ingredients are non-GMO and free of artificial sweeteners.

5) IS IT NATURAL? 

You know it! The 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders are made with all natural ingredients.

6) ARE THERE FLAVORS? 

YES! The 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders are currently available in two delicious “shake” flavors: chocolate and vanilla. Both versatile in their own ways, these two distinct flavor profiles can be used as a basis to create endless delicious tastes. For recipes using the chocolate flavor click here, and for recipes using the vanilla flavor, click here.

8) WHAT DO I USE IT FOR? 

SO MANY THINGS! While the powder was originally intended for making smoothies, it has quickly become a staple ingredient in people’s kitchens. It can be used to enhance the nutrient density of countless dishes—everything from waffles to pancakes, cakes and cookies, ice cream, and of course, muffins. For a list of unique ways to use the powders, click here. To use for smoothies/ shakes: just mix with the liquid of your choice (12 oz for every 2 scoops), shake, mix or blend and go! It can be used works alone with dairy and non-dairy milks to create a shake, and blended with ice and desired ingredients to create smoothies.

New recipes using the 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders are added to the site regularly, so stay tuned for updates. For a complete list of recipes that use the powder, click here.

 

9) ARE THEY GLUTEN-FREE? 

Yes, the 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders are gluten-free and therefore suitable for those who are gluten intolerant. This is hugely advantageous for those who cannot tolerate gluten because many gluten-free products lack fiber, which makes meeting their daily fiber needs more difficult. Using the 20/20 Fiber/Protein powder for baking puts traditionally gluten-containing confections such as cookies, pancakes and waffles back on the menu for such people.

10) IS IT KOSHER? 

Yes, the 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders are certified Kosher.

11) IS THIS PRODUCT DAIRY-FREE? 

Because the 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders are made with whey protein, they technically contain dairy and therefore cannot be classified as dairy-free. However, whey protein has a low lactose content, so many people who have trouble digesting dairy find they are better able to tolerate the product.

12) DO THE 20/20 FIBER/PROTEIN POWDERS CONTAIN SOY? NUTS? 

The 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders are both soy-free and nut-free. However, they are manufactured in a facility that also processes products containing Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree nuts (such as almonds, cashews, and walnuts), fish shellfish (such as crab, lobster, shrimp), soy and wheat.

13) IS IT SUITABLE FOR VEGANS? 

The 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders are made with whey protein, which is not a vegan protein, but actually a derivative of dairy (milk). Therefore, it is technically not vegan.

14) IS IT SAFE FOR CONSUMPTION DURING PREGNANCY? 

F-Factor 20/20 Fiber/Protein Powders are safe to consume during pregnancy. As always, it’s important to speak to your OBGYN before making any dietary changes during your pregnancy.

15) HOW DO I JOURNAL THE POWDERS ON F-FACTOR? 

One serving (2 scoops) of F-Factor 20/2o Fiber/Protein Powder contains 3 net carbs. It is recorded as 23g carb, 20g fiber in your F-Factor Journal.

16) I FOLLOW F-FACTOR STRICTLY, YOU’RE SAYING IT’S BETTER FOR BREAKFAST THAN OTHER TYPICAL F-FACTOR BREAKFASTS? 

For weight loss, yes. This is simply because the net carb is far lower than other high-fiber breakfasts, and the lower net carb means puts your body in a better position to burn fat for fuel. One serving of the 20/20 Fiber/Protein powders is just 3g net carb. Compare that to other typical high-fiber breakfast items enjoyed on F-Factor: 1 cup of raspberries contains 7g net carbs, 4 GG Bran Crispbreads are 8g net carb, and a half cup of a high-fiber cereal like Fiber One has 11g net carb. These foods are still great breakfast options for anyone, the 20/20 powder just has less net carbs overall. For more on how carbohydrates play into the weight loss equation, click here.

17) HOW DO I COUNT 20/20 POWDERS ON WEIGHT WATCHERS? 

One serving (2 scoops) of F-Factor 20/2o Fiber/Protein Powder is equal to 3 WW Points.

18) IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW MANY SMOOTHIES/SHAKES I CAN HAVE A DAY?

Nope! Technically you can have a 20/20 smoothie or shake for every meal of the day if you have worked your way up to eating that much fiber and are drinking the recommended 3 liters of water daily. However, we recommend having a smoothie or shake no more than twice a day, for breakfast and/or snack, and having lean protein and veggies for lunch and dinner. This way you get the proper variety of foods in your diet to meet all your nutritional needs and stave off any feelings of boredom or deprivation that could otherwise trip you up. F-Factor is all about eating a variety of delicious and nutritious meals, after all.
