What is a Plant Based Protein Powder?
The most commonly used protein powders are usually animal based sources such as whey and egg, but some plants are also very high in protein content. Plant based protein powders are manufactured from plant based sources that are naturally high in protein content such as rice, pea, soy and hemp. Plant based protein powder can be used to increase your protein intake, particularly after a workout to help aid muscle protein synthesis to repair and build muscle strength. Plant based protein can also be used as a meal replacement to aid with weight loss.
