Your Guide To Vegan Protein
Vegan proteins aren’t just for those who follow a plant-based diet. They’re also great suffer from food intolerances as they’re hypoallergenic and can be easier to digest. Lactose intolerance or an avoidance of dairy is seen more and more and the market for vegan proteins is growing massively.
A lot of vegan proteins will consist of one core protein source: hemp, pea, soy and brown rice are common ones. At Neat Nutrition, we mix pea and hemp together for our vegan protein blend. Hemp is often considered a complete protein as it has a comprehensive blend of the essential amino acids your body needs, however it is low in lysine (an amino acid you will struggle to get in your diet if you’re vegan. Lysine helps with building muscle, injury recovery, production of hormones, enzymes and antibodies). Meanwhile, pea protein is closest to a whole food source and is high in lysine, so blending the two makes a good supplement covering every amino acid you need in good quantities.
Sourced from home grown crops in the British countryside, you're guaranteed a premium quality product, and we’re confident it’ll give you a great tasting shake too!
