(NaturalNews) Responding to urgent requests from our readers to let them know which vegan proteins we've tested so far are showing the better results, we've begun posting protein product results at Many readers were overjoyed when we posted our very positive lab results for One World Whey protein last week, but a large number of readers understandably wanted a purely vegan protein alternative.

See the results now at:

So far, we've posted results for:

Sprout Living Sproutein

Vega Protein Smoothie

Nutiva Hemp Protein

Ruth's Hemp Protein

All of the numbers you see for these products are considered quite clean by industry standards.

Hemp and sprout proteins testing very clean

Hemp protein consistently tests clean in our lab, regardless of the manufacturer. From what we can tell so far, all hemp protein is very clean in terms of heavy metals composition.

The really impressive result here is the Sproutein product from Sprout Living. To achieve an average lead composition of only 59 ppb is truly extraordinary for any kind of sprout product because sprout seeds themselves can contain lead. This is proof that the Sproutein manufacturing process is remarkably clean.

If you want to acquire some of this ultra-clean plant-based protein for yourself, we currently offer it at the Natural News Store. (We only carry products we have tested to be very clean of heavy metals, and we are the only online retailer in the world conducting such tests on every product we sell.)

Relatively high MCC numbers for capturing toxic metals during digestion

What else is really fascinating about these vegan proteins is that most of them have fairly strong MCC numbers (Metals Capturing Capacity), meaning they are able to capture and bind with a quantity of toxic metals during digestion.

The hemp proteins seem to perform the best in this regard, showing good capturing potential for arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead. This means that consuming these proteins together with a meal containing those toxic heavy metals will result in less absorption into your body of those metals than would be expected.

Most food products don't have such impressive MCC numbers. For example, check out the ho-hum performance of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, which only shows an impressive MCC profile for Mercury.

Compare that to the MCC performance of, say, Ruth's Hemp Protein Powder and you'll see a huge difference.

If you're wondering what MCC means, I am the inventor of the MCC methodology and testing protocol, and I explain it in the MCC video you'll find at the Forensic Food Lab Videos page.

From here forward, we will be posting products in groups

We've also made a decision to only post products in groups from here forward. For example, instead of posting just one cacao product, we will post up to 10 at a time. Instead of posting just one wheat grass powder, we will post several.

We've decided to do this to allow people to make relative comparisons across a specific category. We've learned that individuals need this relative comparison to make better sense of what the raw numbers actually mean. We also plan to roll out a new row in the heavy metals results chart that reads, "Average results for this category" so that a person can see whether the current product being viewed is higher or lower than others in the same category.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
