  • Sperri was developed by Dr. Mary Lynch, a physician and pain specialist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Many of Dr. Lynch's patients require meal replacements to get adequate nutrition, but many of her patients struggled to tolerate current options as they contain high amounts of processed sugars, milk and soy proteins. Dr. Lynch could not find anything on the market in Canada that would meet her patient's needs. She then approached Gregg Curwin, an experienced entrepreneur, and together they began to develop Sperri.

  • Sperri was developed in Halifax, Nova Scotia and is manufactured in Ontario.

What's Inside Sperri?

  • Yes, Sperri contains all plant ingredients and is 100% vegan.

    Sperri uses often hard to find plant-based forms of Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) and Omega-3 (Algal Oil) to provide all essential nutrients.

  • No, Sperri is free of all common allergens including Eggs, Milk, Mustard, Peanuts, Crustaceans, Fish, Sesame seeds, Soy, Sulphites, Tree Nuts and Wheat.

  • Yes, Sperri is completely free of gluten and gluten containing products.

  • Yes, Sperri has been approved Organic Certified by PRO-CERT

  • Yes, Sperri is verified by the Non-GMO Project to be certified to not contain any genetically modified ingredients.

  • We use the combination of pea and hemp protein as they are both complete proteins, meaning they both contain all nine essential amino acids.

    Additionally, the nutrition profile of hemp protein is extremely beneficial to human health and the sensory qualities of pea protein provide Sperri with an excellent blend of health and taste.

  • We use a combination of Maple Syrup and Tapioca Syrup to sweeten our products. Many meal replacements currently available use highly processed sugars or artificial sweeteners and we feel strongly about using natural products in Sperri

  • Sperri products are Certified Organic and are therefore held to a higher standard and do not contain any MSG, BHA, propylene glycol or GMOs. We carefully source our natural flavours based on quality and flavour. They are all vetted through an approval process that allows them to be used in organic products.

  • DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid, an essential omega 3 fatty acid, and can be found primarily in fatty fish and algae. The DHA in Sperri is sourced from algae off the coast of Nova Scotia, is 100% vegan and is more sustainable than DHA derived from fish. Studies have shown DHA supplementation can improve memory and reaction time, protect brain functions during times of stress, and protect against age-related loss of brain cells.

  • There is no caffeine in Sperri products.

  • Sperri's ingredient list and nutrition facts table can be found here.

Who is Sperri For?
