When you make a purchase, you want to be certain your product choices are good for you, good for your

At Sunwarrior, we start with 100% clean, plant-based ingredients that are always non-GMO. Our products
are soy-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and we never use fillers in our protein powders. And we are always
100% vegan. Our ingredients and final products regularly undergo micros testing to comply with
regulatory requirements and ensure Sunwarrior's high standards are upheld. Our products provide
essential nutrition and building blocks to fuel your body for optimal performance and longevity. And we
practice lean methods in our manufacturing to ensure the best possible freshness.
In 2019, we transitioned to in-house manufacturing and fulfillment because of our commitment to
continually improve and better serve our customers. The Sun Manufacturing and Fulfillment facility is
located just 10 miles from our corporate office in Southern Utah, and is Certified Organic by CCOF. With
growing customer demand, bringing these services in-house allows us to expedite new product launch
initiatives, guarantee faster shipping speeds, and provide enhanced quality control. Most Sunwarrior
products, made in this facility, are Certified Organic by CCOF. To learn more about those certifications,
please visit their website.
Sourcing: Our pea, rice, fava bean, and hemp proteins are made using enzymes to separate the natural
starch from the protein, enabling us to use a concentrated protein powder that delivers nutrition with far
less bulk. The entire process is free of solvents, GMOs, radiation, artificial colors, preservatives, and
assures a protein that is an easy-to-digest, nutrient-dense superfood.
Sunwarrior products are grown globally and manufactured in the USA.
We bring you the most potent plants on earth:

Over the years, we have transitioned to a container made with 100% post-consumer
recycled resin that can be recycled-again! Our container designs have also reduced our energy
consumption during storage and transportation. They are BPA free, phthalate free, and we use plastic #2
(HDPE), which is the safest form of plastic in the World. CLICK HERE for tubtastic ideas to reuse our
We sometimes receive questions regarding our packaging from those who feel we would better serve
the environment by using bags and boxes. We want to assure you that we have tried bags and boxes and
have found that they created MORE environmental waste due to extra packing material required,
damaged product, and complications during the manufacturing process. Though we were cleaner than
many companies, we knew we could do better. So, we did better. The tubs we use are our current
best-available option. We pioneered the square tub, which saves space, packs more tightly for less
damage and waste, saves energy in transport, and even allows us to have a smaller manufacturing plant
and warehouse than the bag-in-a-box style of packaging or the round tubs. Stocking only three sizes of
tubs also creates an efficiency that limits environmental waste. But that doesn’t mean we’re stopping
there! We’re always on the look-out for new and innovative ways to package using plant-based materials.
Every day, we are searching for greater sustainability and minimizing our carbon footprint. Our goal is to
have entirely plant-based packaging by 2023!.
In Fact, using the EPA Recycled Content Tool we were able to estimate our life-cycle greenhouse
emissions impact savings.
The energy benefit in terms of gallons of gasoline not consumed: 204,075 Gallons
The greenhouse gas benefit in terms of passenger cars not driven for one year: 177.1 Cars
We sometimes receive questions regarding why the tubs are not full to the top when you receive them. All
of our products are filled and sold by weight. When we fill the tubs, we do fill nearly to the top, but since
some of our powders are so fine, there can be a significant amount of settling that occurs during shipping
and storage; this is represented by the fill icon shown on the back of most of our labels. It is suggested to
shake the product a few times after opening the seal (and then putting the lid back on) as this lets some
air in and loosens the packed powder.

What About Our Labels?
Sunwarrior has partnered with a label supplier that offers:
A carbon neutral printing platform that produces beautiful digitally printed labels.
An average scrap rate of 2% vs 10% industry standard.
Order only whats needed. This reduces waste of obsolete labels and packaging.
No Polymer plates are required. This reduces energy and materials.
We’ve already talked about the sustainability with our packaging and our plans for the future, but let’s
talk about our products. Our entire product lineup is 100% plant-based and the farming methods of
which we source our ingredients from, are sustainable. We don’t harm the oceans and we have no use
for factory farming. While we respond to market trends to create and introduce new products, we only do
so if it is sustainable and we can find sources that meet our high standards of quality. Sunwarrior is
good for your body, animal friendly, and good for the planet. All of our amazing products are created with
our mission in mind, to nourish & transform the planet, one individual at a time.
What About Heavy Metals?
Our products are tested to provide you with superior, safe nutrition. Heavy metals are found in everything
grown in soil. These metals naturally exist in our earth’s crust, in our air, and in our water. They frequently
appear in food that requires more water, such as brown rice, root vegetables, and greens. They are
unavoidable for people who eat whole foods from the earth.
Sunwarrior and other leading health advocates seek higher standards from farmers and suppliers to
reduce heavy metals through methods of watering and air quality management. You can support the
cause and advocate for cleaner farming methods by buying Certified Organic products and eating more
plant-based foods. Together, we can create change in the way food is grown, improving ingredients from
With the majority of our manufacturing and fulfillment done in-house, we purchase from reputable
suppliers and require our vendors to deliver higher quality goods. Most of our products are both organic
and Kosher certified, which means there are other objective parties inspecting the producers of our
ingredients and our production facilities at every step.
How We Test for Heavy Metals
We want to assure you that our products are safe choices for you and your family, but we don’t expect
you to take our word for it. We utilize an ISO-Certified, third-party lab to conduct all our heavy metals and
ARL Bio Pharma testing lab ensures our product meets the necessary standards (see below graphic).
The results are delivered as a Certificate of Analysis giving us the confidence that we are delivering you
the cleanest possible nutrition.
Statement from ARL Bio Pharma Testing Lab:
Foods such as fruits and vegetables grown in the ground naturally contain trace amounts of heavy metals.
Sunwarrior products use whole food sources for their protein; however, they have taken the necessary steps
to ensure their products contain the cleanest and highest quality plant-based proteins. One of those steps is
testing for heavy metals. Their proteins are Certified Organic, non-GMO, and consistently meet EU, WHO, and
FDA safety standards in every way. As we have tested their products, we have found them to be compliant,
clean, and well within safety requirements. They more than meet the standards and regulations necessary
to bring their customers the cleanest and most nutritive proteins.
When comparing the heavy metals found in Sunwarrior protein powders to real, whole vegetables and
fruits, on average, our proteins contain 76% less cadmium than a cup of spinach, 68% less lead than an
average-sized avocado, and 47% less arsenic than an average-sized peach.
Sunwarrior protein powders contain
The more processing a food undergoes, the less heavy metals it contains. These are removed along with
the nutrients, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and enzymes that make living foods great. Processed
foods—like sodas, candies, refined carbs, and even bacon—appear healthier when looking at heavy metal
content alone, but appearances can be deceiving. Whole foods will always naturally contain some heavy
