Vegan Protein Vs. Whey
by Peter Bua on August 26, 2020
Two popular protein choices amongst consumers are vegan protein and whey protein. Vegan protein powder is a popular choice, even for those who do not follow a vegan or vegetarian diet. The benefits of vegan protein are endless. As you continue to see vegan protein powder grow in popularity, you may find yourself thinking, ‘Why vegan?’. We’re here to share some of the benefits of vegan protein powder. Keep reading to learn more about vegan protein and determining which protein powder is best for you.
The Benefits of Vegan Protein Powder
One of the reasons why many people choose vegan protein is because it doesn’t cause bloating. There is nothing worse than trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle only to feel constantly bloated by your protein powder. FitFormula’s Pro Vegan Creamy Chocolate Protein Blend will not cause the bloating that you may get when consuming whey protein. This is a big reason why many people who don’t follow a vegan diet still choose a vegan protein. Vegan protein powder is easy to digest. Unless you have a specific sensitivity, most people don’t experience gas or stomach pain when using a vegan protein powder. It’s much easier for your body to break down vegan protein as opposed to whey.
A Vegan Protein That Tastes Good?! No Whey!
See what we did there? That’s our one and done Dad joke for the day! But seriously, one of the reasons why FitFormula customers continue to choose our Creamy Chocolate Protein Blend is because it’s a vegan protein that tastes great! Vegan protein gets a bad reputation for having a gritty texture and chalky aftertaste. If you’ve tried a vegan protein only to be disappointed by the taste and texture, we encourage you to try FitFormula’s Pro Vegan Creamy Chocolate Protein Blend. The taste and texture will not disappoint!
Another reason why vegan protein powder is a bit superior to its whey counterpart is because of plant-based ingredients. All of the ingredients are plant-based, so you can take comfort in knowing exactly what you are consuming. FitFormula’s vegan protein combines the high bioavailability of pea protein powder, hemp, and flax with the added goodness of probiotics. Bacillus coagulans, a powerful probiotic, is considered particularly effective at alleviating stomach distress and other ailments of the gut, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and helps to support healthy digestion and colonic activity. Current research indicates that B. coagulans may also help prevent respiratory infections and assist the immune system in fighting illness. Pea protein is considered an emerging “superfood” by both the food and health industries. Pea protein isolate is an easily digested, allergen-free, and highly nutritious protein. It supplies not only all nine essential amino acids but also several branched-chain amino acids that promote healthy blood flow, glucose uptake, heart health, and muscle growth. It’s also an excellent source of iron. Flax seed is rich in the polyphenols responsible for antioxidant activity. Flax also promotes a healthy balance of lipids in the body, specifically LDL and triglycerides. Hemp is considered by many to be the ‘perfect’ protein source. Hemp is rich in fiber, minerals, and free-radical fighting polyphenols, and the protein edestin, which helps drive antibody production and contributes to an optimized immune system.
