When it comes to choosing the right nutritional supplements, it’s hard to figure out which ones will offer optimal health benefits without fillers and added sugars. Luckily, SoTru offers solutions made using fermented natural ingredients - a process that captures their full nutritional potency and makes them more easily digestible. Among other products, SoTru offers a variety of nutritional mixes - from those used to make protein shakes to those containing medicinal mushrooms for stress and immune system strengthening.
The History of SoTru
With a combined 55 years of experience in the organic health foods and nutritional supplements industry, Jade Beutler, Stuart Hutchinson, and Rick Hayes founded SoTru in 2015 with the goal of creating products using naturally-occurring components in certain superfoods. Using the process of fermentation, naturally occurring (yet great-tasting) nutrients are procured from these sources such as vitamins, minerals, plant-based proteins, and phytochemicals.
The trio states that all of their efforts through the years (including in-house fermentation, production, packaging, and distribution) were carried out with “pure and absolute intention,” even the unique package designs that helped to attract initial customers.
SoTru Company Mission
SoTru’s mission grew from its founders’ desire to offer clean and healthy whole-food supplements filled with vitamins, proteins and phytonutrients, along with added organic and fermented ingredients. Today, the company vows to be “true” to its customers by growing products organically and nurturing the entire process - handling seeding, farming and field selection. SoTru states that it hopes to promote “clean, green healthful living,” even going so far as to limit the number of raw materials they procure to match (and not exceed) customer demand).
Benefits of SoTru
When it comes to “clean, green healthful living,” there are, of course, many benefits to be realized:
- SoTru supports sustainable farming, including small independent organic enterprises
- The company’s internal quality assurance department and 3rd party testing ensure top-level product purity, potency, and safety
- Products are not targeted to mass-market consumers and outlets.
