Is Vegan Protein Powder easy to digest?
While plant-based protein powder is a little slower to digest than whey, it is easier to digest as it presents less digestive problems. The most common cause of digestive problems with protein powder is an intolerance to a particular source. Lactose intolerance is the most common and effects up to 60% of people on some level. Common symptoms of lactose intolerance include gas, bloating and diarrhea or constipation.
Vegan protein powders such as rice protein powder are hypoallergenic and rarely present digestive problems.
