Protein, Calcium and B12:
While curating our boxes, we chose a higher protein option for each of the products that went inside the box. This was done to ensure that you get sufficient protein for a ‘moderate’ activity day. In addition, there’s an option to add 44g of yummy protein powder, for those of you who’re on a higher protein diet.
We’ve fortified all of our plant based substitutes (milk and protein powder) with Calcium, therefore the name PlantCa = Plant + Calcium. In addition, we’ve added essential vitamins and minerals in our PlantCa Protein powder like Vitamin B12 (85% RDA) and D2 (75% RDA), so you don’t have to worry about developing any nutritional deficiencies. But in case you already have a particular deficiency, we recommend you consult your doctor before changing your diet.
All of our products are free from lactose (60% Indians suffer from varying levels of lactose intolerance) and animal hormones (that often results in thyroid issues, PCOS and acne). Some of our products contain Gluten (approximately 1% of world’s population is estimated to have celiac disease). Some products contain soy or nuts. Please check our ingredients list for more details.
Over the last few years, top athletes have discovered that plant based diets can really boost their performance. Irrespective of the type of sport they’ve championed (soccer, tennis, weight-lifting, formula 1 racing, surfing, marathons etc.), they’ve observed massive improvement in their abilities. We recommend you watch the documentary called ‘Game Changers’ or ‘What the Health’ for more insights on this topic.
We’ve kept-out preservatives, cholesterol, adulterants, lactose, antibiotics, animal hormones, refined sugar, and refined flour (maida) from our products. And we’ve kept-in plant based, protein dense and fiber rich ingredients that work well with the Indian palate.
While creating each dairy-substitute product (milk, protein powder, cookies etc.), we did extensive research to achieve high taste overlap with its dairy-based counterpart. For e.g., our milk-substitute went through 100+ trials to ensure that it doesn’t interfere with your teas and coffees.
Our each product is designed to be more than enough for two adults for one serving, be it for breakfast, lunch or snacking. In case you’re ordering for just one person, you can consume it across multiple days.
Yes. All our products are vegan as well as Jain friendly. No root vegetables and no figs.

Upon agreeing that any form of avoidable cruelty should be minimised, we think half the battle is already won. To gradually ease into removing more animal products from your diet, you can try being vegan on specific days of the week or month (e.g. at least one day a week or 5 days in a month). To make it easier for you, we’ve added the weekly, fortnightly and monthly subscription options.
Most of your friends and family may agree on avoiding animal cruelty, but will worry about taste, nutrition and price when considering veganism. Firstly, you should share all the info on why Veganism is good for animals, environment and their own health.
In case they’re still hesitant, you can consider gifting them a “Vegan Day” experience-box, to overcome their fear of commitment to a new lifestyle. Once they have a positive experience, the likelihood of them becoming vegan in the future would increase.
Veganday is a journey from trying vegan for one day, to becoming vegan everyday. We believe that sudden change is hard for most people, especially for decade old habits. Since each person has a different journey based on his or her constraints, VeganDay is a concept designed to make their first step easier.
With every liter of PlantCa’s doodh, that substitutes your regular milk, you help the bovines (cows & buffaloes) with ~2hrs of freedom. On top of that, this milk substitute saves 15km+ of car emissions as well as 10+ buckets of water. Please check out our Instagram, or PlantCa tetrapak, for detailed explanation of these numbers.
Though the word ‘vegan’ was coined in 1940s in the west, but its roots lie in the word ‘Ahimsa’, which is very much Indian. This principle is not just limited to not hurting others, but extends to respecting each life form. And this principe is behind India having the biggest percentage of vegetarians in the world today, behind many Indians worshipping various animals seated beside the Gods, and a key factor behind India’s successful struggle for independence.
We’ve started with dairy substitutes since it cuts across ages, regions and cultures. It also puts tremendous pressure on the bovines (India is the largest producer of milk and in the top 5 largest exporters of beef). And since the founders were born and brought up as vegetarians, they have little understanding of the meat-alternatives today.
