Top Considerations when Choosing a Plant Based Protein Powder
If you’re looking to buy plant protein powder that will give you the results that you want, there are many considerations to take into account, with two of the most important being:
Taste/Texture – This is where the specific type of protein plant that’s used will have the biggest impact. Certain plant sources such as hemp and soy are better suited to different textures so, in most cases, they tend to taste better.
Additives – Protein powder manufacturers add different artificial sweeteners, bulking agents and/or preservatives so it’s important to always check the label to ensure that you’re getting the best plant based protein with the ingredients that you want/need.
Which plant-based protein is best for you?
Soy protein is described as a ‘complete’ protein and is considered the most effective plant based source for building and maintaining muscle. And because it contains arginine and glutamine, soy protein supports digestive health, brain function and it promotes a strong immune system too.
Tip: Choose soy if you’re looking for a vegan protein powder that will support muscle building, decrease cravings, and give you your recommended daily allowance of protein.
Pea protein, such as Passion Projects raw organic pea protein, is the easiest plant based protein to digest. It’s low in two amino acids so it’s best to take it in conjunction with another plant protein such as rice or hemp to make it ‘complete.’
Tip: Recommended for those who wish to avoid animal-based products, but don’t want to eat soy. It’s perfect for people who suffer with digestive issues.
Rice protein contains all essential amino acids, that is all amino acids that cannot be produced by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of body tissue, of muscle, the immune system and hormones so having them all contained in one protein source is very convenient.
Tip: Rice protein is perfect for vegetarians and those that follow restricted diets. It’s also suited to individuals with gluten, dairy and/or soy allergies.
