Which Plant Based Protein Powder is best?
Each plant based protein has its own unique characteristics and benefits, but we prefer a blend of pea and rice protein powder, or soy protein powder. Pea and rice protein powder together form a complete protein, as the unique amino acid profiles of each compliment one another perfectly. This is an easily digested protein and has a high biological value. Soy protein powder is also an excellent source as it is the only plant based protein to offer a complete amino acid profile on its own. However, soy protein has a lower biological value and less of its amino acids can be absorbed by the body. This is why we generally prefer a pea and rice protein powder blend.
