How much Pea Protein Powder should I use?

If you have a healthy balanced diet and seek to build muscle strength, you can take up to 1 gram of pea protein powder per pound of body weight a day. However 0.75 grams per pound should be sufficient for a rigorous training program. For best results however, we recommend mixing equal parts of pea and rice protein to ensure a well balanced amino acid profile.

For weight loss, protein shakes can be used to replace up to 2 meals a day. If you are using protein to replace more than one meal you should also supplement with additional fiber and a good multivitamin.

Long term excessive use of more than 1 gram of protein per pound per pound of body weight is not advisable, as it has been associated with an increased health risks.
