Living a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle can be trying at times, especially when confronted with the daily protein requirements that are needed to complete a rounded wholefoods diet. The most common sources of added protein in the vegan and vegetarian diet had come from soy, legumes, and nuts for many years, but recent developments in technology have allowed for many vegetables and grains to be refined into nutritious protein powders that offer users a variety of healthy applications in their daily intake, including the new pea protein isolate!
True Nutrition was one of the first companies on the scene to develop one such material, the Pea Protein Isolate, for wide release to the individual user. Pea Protein Isolate is derived from yellow peas that have been processed using a cold-water filtration method to reduce or remove much of the added starch and fiber content that is naturally-occurring within the pea. The resulting powder retains a nutritional profile consisting of over 80% protein by volume, which is comparable to a standard whey protein concentrate. Pea Protein Isolate is rich in Leucine, Arginine, Glutamine, and all remaining branch chain and essential amino acids. This protein offers a digestibility of approximately 90% in humans, and in addition to being a non-GMO protein powder, the Pea Protein Isolate is also gluten-free, soy-free, and hypoallergenic.
“I’ve tried other expensive pea proteins on the market, and found that yours is just as good (and only a fraction of the cost!). Keep up the good work, I couldn’t meet my current goals without you.”
The Pea Protein Isolate retains the natural, earthy taste of the pea, itself, which is best complimented by Chocolate or Vanilla flavor types, or when used in either baking or smoothies. Pea Protein Isolate can be used to help enrich many dishes, including pancakes, breads, or muffins. It is also great simply by itself, especially when mixed with one of our natural flavor systems!
In addition to the Pea Protein Isolate, True Nutrition offers many other healthy alternatives that meet the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle, which include:
It is always important to alternate protein sources and to eat a varied diet in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. True Nutrition’s wide variety of plant-based protein powders are your key towards vegan and vegetarian success!
