Is Protein Powder vegan?
Not all protein powder is vegan, but there are plenty of options for those on a vegan diet. Protein is found in high concentration in many plants. Some notable examples of protein sources include soy, rice, pea and hemp. Soy is notable as it is the only complete protein source containing a balance of all 9 essential amino acids. Rice and pea are also exceptional when taken together. The combination of these also provides a complete protein. Hemp is unique in that it also contains additional nutrition such as omega 3 fatty acid.
If you’re on a vegan diet you need to avoid whey, casein and of course egg and beef protein powder.
