CEO & Founder

Andrew Abraham, MD may be the founder and CEO of Orgain, but the best part about him is that he’s just your average guy that happens to have an incredible passion for nutrition, health and wellness, along with a fresh perspective on life that he wants to share with the world. At only 17 years old Andrew was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma and underwent over a year of grueling treatments. It was during this time that Andrew realized that the nutritional odds were stacked against him, and he was forced to forge his own nutritional path to ensure his survival. Thankfully, with the love and support of family and friends, he survived and went on to complete medical school and to eventually become the founder of Orgain. Flash forward to today, Andrew has added husband and father of two young boys to his already impressive resume. While life has become increasingly busy he continues to strive each day to live a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle not only to stay well, but also to set a good example for his boys and everyone around him.

Sr. Director of Healthcare & Sports
Keith Hine, MS, RD is our Sr. Director of Healthcare and leads our efforts to educate and inspire healthcare professionals on the unique benefits Orgain products deliver compared to conventional nutrition brands.

Keith started with Orgain in 2016 after discussions with Dr. Andrew Abraham, Orgain’s Founder and CEO, about his goal to raise awareness of Orgain among dietitians and other healthcare professionals. Andrew was looking for someone with Keith’s profile to help pioneer that work for the company. He joined Orgain and has never looked back.

Keith’s career to date prepared him well for this role, as he has over 20 years of experience in various positions, including a generalist dietitian in hospitals, a nutrition support dietitian, and a clinical nutrition manager at a large health system. After those years in clinical dietetics, Keith transitioned to the commercial nutrition industry and progressively held more responsible roles in a variety of functional areas.

Keith lives in the western Chicago suburbs with his wife Stephanie and their two sons. He loves that his role at Orgain allows him to tap into all his professional experiences, but that he’s not alone in the mission of raising awareness of Orgain in the medical community.

"My colleagues and I are very happy to be able to tell our patients about Orgain products. It’s wonderful to have such a high quality product to recommend—one I use myself! I’m very happy you have such great vegan products!"
Clarisa
Oncology Dietitian
"I have had great experiences with the portal. Simple, easy, and quick. I love Orgain products and having access to them to offer to my patients is great."
Vivianne
Oncology Dietitian
"I think the direct-to-patient sampling program is one of the best, most convenient ways for patients to receive samples delivered to their homes during the pandemic that I've seen so far. The option for patients to also see the tracking information is an added bonus! My patients have been appreciative they don't have to go out shopping during the pandemic, & that they have the option to still try before buying."
Elizabeth
Oncology Dietitian
"Orgain hits all the elements important to my patients, such as affordability and taste, and also gives me confidence as a Gastroenterologist that I’m providing patients a clean, hypo-allergenic product that is well-tolerated. I use the nutritional shakes on those who need supplemental calories, even via feeding tubes, and the protein shakes for my post-bariatric patients on modified diets as well as those on weight loss programs. Orgain is the go-to in my GI practice.” "
Seper
Gastroenterologist
"Working with the oncology population, I know just how detrimental it can be to not consume adequate calories and protein. Unfortunately, many of my patients and clients are at risk of becoming malnourished because their caloric demand is increased. Orgain allows these individuals the chance to add more nutrition in a clean, wholesome, and delicious way! I feel confident using Orgain as a tool in my toolbox to help optimize my patient and clients’ nutritional status. Orgain wants to help individuals as much as I do – and I really appreciate that!"
Rayna
Oncology Dietitian
"I’m a Registered Dietitian and would first like to start by sharing how much your Orgain product has helped my medical condition, Crohn’s Disease. I was on the Specific Carbohydrate diet for almost 2 years in clinical and biochemical remission, however I had a flare up and was unable to get control until I started Exclusive Enteral Nutrition (EEN), by mouth, with your Orgain All-in-One Nutrition Shakes, for one month straight. I went into clinical remission for about 6 months, then figured out if I do Partial Enteral Nutrition (drinking 2 shakes for breakfast everyday) I’m back into remission. Your product has literally been my medicine!"
Sarah
Clinical Dietitian
"I've never found a plant based protein powder specifically that is so loved by so many athletes, and I'd love to be able to recommend it to other people."
Diane
Sports Dietitian
"I really like the Orgain ambassador program as it makes it very easy to reorder samples, coupons, etc. I also like that you offer webinars and educational info as well. Really, I think your program is very well organized compared to many of the other supplement companies."
Liz
Oncology Dietitian
"I like that the product is available to our patients over the counter and even online. I've gotten back good feedback from a Crohn's patient who previously refused to take any supplements that we've offered."
Audra
Sports Medicine Dietitian
"I am very much enjoying being an ambassador. Ordering sample kits is a breeze, and my patients appreciate that they get to try a sample of your product before going out and buying a box for themselves."
Nicole
Sports Medicine Dietitian
"Being a registered dietitian, I feel confident promoting your product. I feel good telling my allergy clients the standards you uphold with manufacturing. It is difficult to find nut free protein shakes that are healthy. Your products are clean and non modified."
Christine
Clinical Dietitian
"I wanted to write you because I want you to know that Orgain really has great products. I have type 1 diabetes, which has been my primary motivator to become a dietitian and a diabetes educator and I have always had to be careful with processed foods, with an emphasis on protein powders and shakes. However, though I nearly always have a poor blood sugar reaction to protein products, this has not been the case with Orgain products! This just goes to show the quality of Orgain products. So thank you. I had samples sent to my house at first as a test run to see how it affected my diabetes, but Orgain has been wonderful and wonderful to work with the Ambassador program. I couldn't be happier. I now plan to work with the Endo and PA to start giving out Orgain samples and coupons to all the patients."
Ariel
Certified Diabetes Educator
"I am so happy I found Orgain! I have been looking for clean, plant-based protein and bars, and Orgain is perfect. My patients are constantly asking me what protein to use for shakes, and I will be happy to recommend Orgain!"
Sara
Oncology Dietitian
"I have been enjoying talking to patients about the product as an alternative for nutritional support. I've had several patients tell me this is one of the only nutritional drinks they are able to tolerate with gastroparesis (our patient population). It is nice to have samples to provide to patients if they need extra nutritional intake (or better options than Boost and Ensure, which many of our patients cannot tolerate).
We appreciate the program and the opportunity to provide patients with samples."
Natalie
Gastroenterology Nurse
"My first choice for patients that need an oral supplement is almost always Orgain. As an RD I am much more comfortable recommending Orgain over conventional brands like Ensure and BOOST because it’s certified organic, has a much cleaner and less controversial ingredient list and it’s lower in sugar. Yet most importantly, my cancer patients don’t complain about it being too sweet or having a chemical taste so they are much more likely to drink it and get the important nutrition they need during treatment. It’s a premium product yet doesn’t come with the premium price tag that puts it out of reach for patients. I also love that its so widely available now at retailers and can be purchased online too like on Amazon at a really good price."
Janet
Oncology Dietitian
"As an oncology dietitian, many of my patients and families have expressed a desire to use more natural nutrition supplements during their treatments. Many patients are interested in reducing their overall intake of added sugars and processed ingredients. I recommend Orgain supplements to many of my patients given the use of real fruits and vegetables, non-GMO ingredients, and lower amounts of sugar compared to conventional brands. Including Orgain products on our formulary has been a great option for patients and families who are looking for nutrition supplement options outside of the conventional brands."
Lindsey
Oncology Dietitian
"In pediatrics, many of the parents and teenagers I counsel on nutrition complain about artificial ingredients and sugar in the standard pediatric drinks like PediaSure. We recently started to recommend Orgain and us (the RDs), the parents and most importantly the kids love it! It tastes like a real milkshake but not too sweet and no vitamin after taste or tongue coating like traditional products! The monkey graphic is a big selling point over some of the other drinks in my mind. Kids call it the “Monkey Milk” and it puts a smile on their face when I bring it in for them to try! Thank you Orgain for making such a wonderful product!"
Monika
Pediatric Dietitan
"I recommend Orgain products to my patients because they have such a large variety of high quality options. The products are well balanced and responsibly sourced. I love having both plant and grass-fed whey based ready-to-drink and powder options that are not only good for them but also taste great."
Carla
Bariatric Dietitian
"I have been using the Orgain beverages for over 2 years in my GI practice. These products are the perfect fit for my GI compromised patients as well as anyone looking for a high quality, clean protein, calorie dense liquid beverage. The flavors are wonderful and these products are tolerated very well by all my clients. I have used the high protein beverage for my diabetic clients, as well as my athletes - these are the perfect fit due to the low sugar content! I highly recommend the Orgain line of nutritional products to both the compromised and healthy individual."
Lori
Gastroenterolgy Dietitian
"Being an RD in gastroenterology, I need to view products very closely when I recommend them to patients. Orgain is a great option for patients looking for an organic, high quality protein shake that does not cause GI distress."
Laura
Gastroenterolgy Dietitian
"I have Chrohn's Disease, a host of food allergies and problems just getting in enough nutrition. I have little to no appetite most of the time, and have to eat very small portions. I struggle to get enough calories and vitamins in. Orgain's vegan shakes and protein bars are a literal life saver. I often have no appetite, and can keep either a shake or bar nearby and eat very slowly on it--which gets the calories in, but I don't feel rushed to eat a whole meal. And the ingredients are completely safe for me to eat--I don't have to worry about if what I'm putting in my body is going to make me sicker. Oh--and they taste great as well which makes the task of eating less stressful and I'm starting to enjoy it again. Thank you, Orgain for what you do!"
