Frequently Asked Questions
You've got questions. We have answers.
Why do you use a blend of collagen and whey protein in Epic Grounds Protein Creamers?
Collagen is high in a few key amino acids that are not found in a typical western diet, while our gently processed organic grass-fed whey protein concentrate provides a complete amino acid profile and several beneficial whey protein subfractions that are destroyed in more heavily processed whey isolates. We created our specialized blend of collagen and organic grass-fed whey protein to deliver a uniquely beneficial protein profile while keeping taste at the forefront. Each 30g serving of our Protein Creamer delivers 7g of collagen and a complete protein profile while allowing you to indulge in the rich and creamy flavor of your favorite specialty coffee beverages without any of the guilt.
Do Epic Grounds Protein Creamers have a bitter or chemical aftertaste?
Never! We're obsessive about taste and quality, and our Protein Creamers went through hundreds of iterations to get them just right, so any off-putting aftertaste was out of the question. Our mission was to create good-for-you creamers that could truly stand up against coffeehouse-quality beverages. We went to great lengths to source the purest and highest quality organic monk fruit and organic erythritol available to ensure that you never experience the bitter aftertaste often associated with lower quality sweeteners. While many sugar-free creamers leave an off-putting chemical aftertaste that tastes anything but natural, Epic Grounds Protein Creamers are naturally delicious and naturally sweet with absolutely no bitter aftertaste.
Do Epic Grounds Protein Creamers have a strong coconut flavor?
No, our Protein Creamers went through hundreds of iterations to get their flavors just right. Our specialized blend of organic coconut milk, organic grass-fed ghee, and organic grass-fed whey protein ensures that our Protein Creamers deliver a rich and creamy experience that tastes and behaves similarly to fresh milk and doesn't mask the flavor of your coffee with an overwhelming coconut flavor.
Is the fat from grass-fed ghee and coconut good for me?
Yes! Our ghee and coconut blend is high in a special group of saturated fats known as short and medium-chain triglycerides, which are metabolized quickly by the liver to produce instant energy (unlike long-chain saturated fats that are digested slowly and must eventually pass through the lymphatic system, making them more likely to be stored as fat). In addition, our Protein Creamers provide healthy monounsaturated fat, CLA, omega-3s, vitamin A, Vitamin E, and antioxidants. Research has shown that saturated fats such as those found in coconut oil and ghee offer health benefits when consumed as part of a balanced diet and do not increase the risk of heart disease. We recommend talking with your doctor before making significant changes to your diet, as nutritional needs can vary.
Is Epic Grounds Protein Creamer keto-friendly?
Yes! Our Protein Creamers are keto-friendly and have been tested to ensure that they won't disrupt ketosis. Each 30g serving contains healthy fats like MCTs, 1g of net carbs, no added sugar, natural sweeteners that won't raise blood sugar, and good-for-you collagen and whey protein that have a low glycemic impact and nourish your body. Epic Grounds Protein Creamers are an excellent choice if you are following a ketogenic diet.
Are there MCTs in Epic Grounds Protein Creamers?
Yes! Each 30g serving of our Protein Creamers deliver at least 4g of MCTs from organic coconut and organic grass-fed ghee.
Are Epic Grounds Protein Creamers a good choice for breaking my fast?
Our Protein Creamers are excellent for breaking your fast, providing your body with good-for-you fats, collagen, and whey protein that will ease your body back into a fed-state without inducing the nausea or headaches that can occur when you eat too much too soon after fasting.
When is the best time to use Epic Grounds Protein Creamers?
Any time! Our Protein Creamers are great for hectic mornings, breaking your fast, as an afternoon dessert, on outdoor adventures, or before and after your workout.
How long should I consume collagen? Should I stop using Epic Grounds Protein Creamers after a certain length of time?
We recommend including collagen and our Protein Creamers continuously for best results.
Can I consume multiple servings of Epic Grounds Protein Creamer in a single day?
Yes, you can safely enjoy multiple servings of our Protein Creamers as part of a well-balanced diet. Since nutritional needs vary from individual to individual, we recommend consulting with your physician before making any significant changes to your diet.
What is organic erythritol? Will it cause digestive discomfort?
You can enjoy Epic Grounds Protein Creamers without the fear of digestive discomfort that some other sugar substitutes can create. Erythritol is a natural sweetener that is found in fruits and plants and has zero calories, zero carbs, zero glycemic impact, and is easy to digest.
Are Epic Grounds Protein Creamers growth hormone free?
Yes! We carefully sourced every ingredient in our Protein Creamers and only use premium, organic dairy ingredients made from healthy grass-fed cows that are rBGH/rBST hormone free.
Do Epic Grounds Protein Creamers contain lactose?

Is it safe for pregnant women or breastfeeding moms to consume Epic Grounds Protein Creamers?
