Is Vegan Protein Better For You? #QoW

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Is Vegan Protein Better For You?

It’s not a case of better or worse, it’s more about lifestyle and choice. Vegan and Whey proteins each have their benefits and it’s more about what suits you and your body. Lets break down the headline pros of both:

Vegan:

  • Hypoallergenic: Great for people that are lactose intolerant or suffer from allergies.
  • Can be easier to digest because it’s plant based.

Whey: 

  • Whey is higher in all the essential amino acids – those your body doesn’t make itself and need from your diet.
  • Whey protein is higher in BCAAs than vegan protein.

So the protein that’s better is really the protein that’s better for you!
