Whats the deal with plant based protein?
According to the International Food Information Council
88 Million Vegans in the World with a high majority of others saying they’ve been eating more food from whole-plant sources.
There’s no shortage of novel
plant-forward protein sources to choose from, with new powders, milks, and meat substitutes emerging every month. And, of course, old standbys like beans, quinoa, and tofu are always available to add animal-free protein to your diet too.
Considering leaning more on plants to fill you up, build your muscles, and even help you lose weight?
Is it as good as animal protein for health?
Complete proteins are those that provide all nine essential amino acids the body can’t produce on its own and must get from food.
Many vegan proteins don’t contain all the essential amino acids, leading some people to believe that they must mix and match their menu to create the right balance. A common example is combining rice and beans.
However, many experts now say that pairing specific vegetarian foods for their amino acids probably
isn’t necessary. A well-balanced diet is likely to supply sufficient amounts of all 20 amino acids, both essential and non-essential.

For many people, a vegan protein powder fits their diet because, well, they are actually vegan or because they want to increase protein intake and fortify their diet. For others, a plant-based protein is free from allergens or sensitive ingredients. Some might want a vegan protein simply because it’s full of healthy plant proteins and sweetened naturally. Plant-based protein is also more valuable because it contains more usable protein than whey and from many different sources. For example pea, hemp and brown rice to name a few.
