Meet Orgain’s Dietitian Director – Healthcare Professional Newsletter, October, 2017

October 18, 2017

Meet Orgain’s Dietitian Leading our Outreach to Healthcare Professionals!

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

Keith started with Orgain in 2016 after discussions with Dr. Andrew Abraham, Orgain’s Founder and CEO, regarding his mission to raise awareness of Orgain among dietitians and other healthcare professionals and was looking for someone with Keith’s profile to help pioneer that work for the company.

Keith’s career experiences have prepared him well for this role, as he has over 20 years of learnings from various positions, that started in hospitals as a generalist dietitian, nutrition support dietitian and then 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 sales, training, business development, marketing and leadership positions with large multinational nutrition companies and a specialty ingredient manufacturer.

Keith lives in the western Chicago suburbs with his wife Stephanie and their 4 year old son, William. Illinois is the sixth state that Keith has resided in during his career, although that doesn’t come compare to the 26 moves that Keith’s parents made during his dad’s Navy career. When not working or engaged in family activities, Keith plays league soccer, a game he has loved since childhood.

Keith loves his role as it allows him to tap into all his experiences but he’s not alone in this mission of raising awareness of Orgain among the medical community. He’ll be the first to acknowledge the many talented folks working alongside him such as Casey Rovetti, MS, RD – Consumer & Healthcare Support Manager, Brian Meares – Healthcare Marketing Leader and many others at Orgain.

Where it All Started: The Organic Nutrition Shake

After surviving cancer at a young age, Orgain’s founder, Dr. Andrew Abraham, set out to make an organic, cleaner label alternative to conventional nutrition shakes. It had to be made from the best organic ingredients, be low in sugar yet high in organic protein, and free of anything artificial. It took many hours in the kitchen to create Orgain’s first product, the Organic Nutrition Shake, but Dr. Abraham really knocked it out of the park.

These shakes are packed with Organic goodness and boast 250 calories,16g of protein, 21 vitamins & minerals, and an organic fruit & vegetable blend in each shake. While the nutrition label is certainly impressive, what stands out even more is the amazing taste and smooth mouthfeel.

Organic Nutrition shakes are available in 4 delicious flavors that even picky patients are sure to enjoy: Creamy Chocolate Fudge, Sweet Vanilla Bean, Iced Café Mocha, and Strawberries & Cream. Of course, because they’re organic, they do not contain GMOs, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives. Organic Nutrition Shakes are perfect for patients on a medical journey, they can be incorporated into a program for weight loss/weight management, and they’re a convenient choice for nutrition on the go.

Grey HR 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 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

    Wondering about this product you (Orgain)created. Where is it made and who grows the raw ingredients used in the product come from? Also, is there any research done on this product?

      Hi there Elena & thanks for your question regarding the origin of our ingredients. Our organic, plant based protein blend is sourced from the USA, Canada, and Cambodia – all areas carefully chosen for purity and superior quality. A vast majority of the protein is from Canada. It is then blended in a GMP certified, organic certified, kosher certified state of the art facility in California. Our grass fed whey and organic milk protein come exclusively from New Zealand. Hope this helps, but if you’d like to get more details or have a more specific question(s), please feel free to email where we can better assist you.

    I have been making a daily Orgain protein drink for my wife since she received a cancer diagnosis 3 years ago.
    Today I read in Consumer reports that your product is one of the worst protein powders for harmfull rates of Arsenic/Mercury, Cadmium/lead, Mycotoxins/Melamine, BPA/BPS and antibiotics.
    Worst of all, you have known about this since Consumer Reports first released a similar study in 2012.
    They also produced a list of protein powders that have little or no trace elements. So it clearly can be done.
    The levels of these toxins in your product compared is disgusting.
