Jake Compared

What is Jake?

Jake is complete food. Complete food provides your body with every nutrient it needs. We introduced our first complete food in 2015, the shake. Since then we’ve been working on developing our complete food products. Ingredients have been replaced and flavours have been improved. We created a new complete food product, the Vitaminbar and later the limited-edition shakes were added. Today we keep on creating and testing new products, so you can stay healthy.

Jake gets you all of the good, and none of the bad. By selecting ingredients that contribute to the nutritional profile of the shake and the bar. The use of plant-based ingredients makes Jake 100% vegan. Jake is also lactose-free. 26 vitamins and minerals are added according to the recommendations by the European Food Safety Authority. This makes Jake complete food.

Complete food companies.

The concept of complete food isn’t new. It has been around for decades, meant for places where more care for nutrition is needed. A good example is infant formula, which is nothing less than complete food for newborn babies. Other examples are space food and complete foods used for medical purposes. It has only been a couple of years since complete foods have started to become a thing for everyone. Nowadays companies are adopting the concept of complete food.

Several companies have embraced the concept of complete food. Each company gives the concept its own twist. We understand that it can be difficult to choose between multiple companies. That’s why we’ve compared Jake with some of the leading providers in the complete food market so you can decide who you like best. Let’s start by looking at what complete food products there are.
