Plant based protein powders are quite simply proteins that originate from plants. These proteins can include hemp protein, pea protein, rice protein, soy protein and more. These proteins can be complete and incomplete which refers to their amino acid profile. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and can be essential and non-essential. To get all benefits you need to consume a complete protein with both essential and non essential amino acids. When it comes to buying a vegan shake, the good news is these protein powders contain essential amino acids and some of these powders even offer a complete source of protein.
In our vegan protein blends, plant proteins like pea and rice are combined together to deliver all 9 essential amino acids.
