PLANT-BASED VEGAN PROTEIN POWDER

For vegans, one of the biggest challenges has always been getting the right protein sources for their diet. There are very few complete plant proteins, and even these should not be relied upon sorely as a kind of silver bullet. 

 

The key, then, is a blend of organic vegan protein powder containing all the necessary protein in the right amounts. Studies and research have now proved that vegans who rely on plant protein have more than enough essential proteins for a healthy body. Plant vegan protein powder will give you all the protein you need to live a healthy vegan life.

WHAT ARE PLANT PROTEINS?

Plant proteins are plants, plant products, or plant derivatives that are rich in protein. As such, they are viable as meat substitutes to a large extent and capable of supplying the necessary dietary protein.

Plant proteins come in many forms, including legumes, cereals, vegetables, pulses, fruits, and seeds. However, unlike animal protein, they tend to have more specific protein content in varying amounts. 

For vegetarians and vegans, plant proteins are crucial because they hardly have any other natural protein sources. Even non-vegans are encouraged to adopt this diet because of how healthy it is. Plant proteins are rich in other essential nutrients with much fewer carbohydrates, and fats.

Why Are Plant Proteins Better?

Plant proteins are ‘leaner’ and come with very few potential side effects and associated risks. That is because plant protein has less fat, less cholesterol, and fewer carbohydrates. By substituting some or all of your animal protein with plant protein, you can significantly reduce your chances of getting heart disease.

Red meat is linked to unpleasant side effects such as increased high-density lipoproteins (LDL), hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. This does not imply that red meat is bad, but a comparison shows that plant proteins are significantly healthier.

Are Plant Proteins As Good As Dairy Protein at Building Muscle?

Like dairy protein, plant proteins are ideal for building muscle if they are taken in the right way. The main challenge to plant proteins is poor digestibility, which can sometimes lead to a waste of protein. Highly digestible plant proteins will offer increased amino acid absorption, which in turn helps lean muscle growth.

A study whose results were published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition proved that the type of protein taken doesn’t seem to matter when it comes to building muscle mass. Instead, the amount of that protein is what is important in this case. 

Taking more protein, regardless of whether it is an animal or plant protein, increases the amount of building blocks that the body has to repair muscles. It also stimulates new muscle growth,

Are Plant Proteins Lactose-Free?

Plant proteins are derived from plants with no animal or dairy ingredients. Unlike most other protein isolates such as whey isolate, no dairy or lactose is present in plant proteins. As such, they are the ideal protein supplement alternative for people who are very sensitive to lactose.

For assurance of 100% lactose-free plant protein, it is essential to buy products from reputable manufacturers. That is because some of them process whey isolate and plant proteins on the same factory line, increasing the risk of contaminations.

One trusted producer of completely vegan protein powder in Australia is VPA. With a product guarantee ensuring both quality and purity, you can always be sure of getting truly lactose-free premium plant protein powder.

Do Plant Proteins Contain Fat?

Unlike animal proteins which usually contain saturated fats, plant nutrients do not contain high amounts of fat and cholesterol. There is usually some fat in whole plant proteins, plant protein isolate has no saturated fat at all.

This makes plant proteins very friendly for cardiovascular health. Taken in the long term, plant proteins will reduce health problems in seniors and other susceptible groups.

Do Plant Proteins Contain Cholesterol?

Plant protein powder does not contain cholesterol. Whole plants and plant parts do have healthy, low-density cholesterol, but none of the ‘bad’ low-density lipoprotein (LDL). These two lipoproteins are how cholesterol travels through the blood.

However, plant protein derived from peas does not contain any cholesterol, which makes it one of the best and healthiest protein supplement options.

What’s the Difference Between Plant Protein and Animal Protein?

The main difference between plant and animal proteins is in the number of amino acids they both contain. The body needs 20 amino acids, 11 of which it can synthesis if it does not get them from the diet.

The remaining nine must be supplied by the food you eat. Animal protein has all nine, making them complete proteins. Plant proteins can lack one or two of these, or have them in very low amounts.

However, by eating a wide variety of plant protein, you will fill up any gaps in your body’s protein needs. Athletes know this, which is why they trust plant-based vegan protein powders to supply complete protein. The VPA blog has more about this. 

Vegetarians and vegans are at high risk of malnutrition simply by lacking one or two of these essential amino acids. There is a dedicated range of vegan products including the Premium Plant Protein Powder.

How Do Plant-Based Protein Blends Compare in Taste?/What Flavours are Available?

Plant protein powder blends can taste bitter or earthy unless they are counterbalanced. VPA Premium Plant Protein Powder is comparably delicious so that you can even take it as-is even when dissolved in warm water.

There are various customer-based flavour options, designed by an in-house food technician with over 15 years of experience. That way, you always have a guarantee of good flavour.

Other Reasons to Make the Switch to Plant Protein Blend

Plant protein is amazing at stimulating and maintaining weight loss. If you need to lose a few inches at the waist, firm up your tummy, and lower the reading at the scales, plant-based protein blends can help you do that.

For one, you will be eating less because they make you feel fuller. Second, it stimulates muscle growth and burning of fat for energy when combined with other measures such as exercise.
