Pea protein - protein powder, valued for its high digestibility

PEA PROTEIN BENEFITS

Pea protein is a form of protein valued for its high digestibility (90-95%) and low potential for allergic responses. Pea protein has a light texture and slightly sweet taste, which mixes well in a solution. It is less allergenic than soy and has no negative health controversies associated with it.

What is pea protein?

Pea protein is a supplement made by extracting protein from yellow peas. It’s naturally rich in iron and is a great fit for almost any diet as it’s vegan and also has no negative allergy problems. 

Why is yellow pea protein good for you?

As a protein, it supports muscle growth, weight loss and heart health. Pea protein is naturally low in calories, and a 20-gram serving contains around 80 calories and 15 grams of protein.

To thrive, our bodies require the full range of nine essential amino acids (AKA BCAAs).  Pea protein is an excellent source of all nine key essential amino acids making it the perfect health and fitness food and one that is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. It’s perfect either for pre-workout rocket fuel or to use for post-workout muscle recovery since it has a complete array of amino acids, including those crucial BCAAs.

In fact, pea protein has a similar amino acid profile to whey, without any of the side effects, such as bloating or cramping.

Which protein should you choose?

There are several proteins that you can choose from. By far, the most common is whey protein from dairy food. However, not everybody will respond in the same way to proteins. As well as having different amino acid profiles, we may have a different tolerance according to the type of protein. Many people are intolerant to lactose or choose not to eat dairy, meaning that whey or casein is a no-go option.

Pea protein is a great dairy-free alternative to protein powders and is easy to digest since it contains no lactose or gluten. It can also keep us fuller for longer because it forms a greater number of peptides within the body. It naturally stimulates a hormone called peptide YY. This peptide tells our brain when we have eaten and that we are full. It also reduces the level of lowering ghrelin levels (AKA the hunger hormone) and sustains satiety for hours on end. As a result, pea protein is fantastic for weight loss or for when we have a busy day ahead of us.
