For our shakes…
For our vegan protein shakes we use Pea Protein
This is carefully selected. It’s unflavoured. It’s an isolate. It’s 100% pea protein. Sourced from the brand Myprotein
What is Pea Protein Isolate
Pea protein is not made from sweet green peas but from their higher protein cousins, yellow split peas. It’s sourced 100% from pea protein isolate with nothing added and nothing is taken away. Isolate proteins are highly-refined, resulting in more protein and less fat and carbs in every scoop. Perfect for dieting and allows you to enjoy your fats and carbs in other meals.
Pea protein scores higher than plant-based alternatives; Soy, hemp and bean proteins. Whilst the bioavailability is not as good as animal-based protein alternatives (whey, casein and egg)
32 grams of pea protein provides 25g of protein.
60 grams of hemp protein is required to deliver the same 25g of protein.
No Allergens and Gluten Free.
- Our pea protein contains no dairy, no gluten, no soy, no sucralose, no artificial flavourings making this a very gut-friendly option for anyone with food allergies, sensitivities or intolerances
- Fibre and starch are removed during processing, this reduces the chance of any sort of bloating
- 94% rate of digestibility meaning nearly all of it will breakdown during digestion and not stress your gut.
Is Unflavoured Pea Protein Isolate a good protein option to support weight loss?
‘Isolate’ varieties are more expensive but have fewer carbs and fats per 25g protein serving sparring those fats and carbs for other foods and meals.
Unflavoured means no additional calories on artificial flavourings and sweeteners
Pea protein In a study among plant-based proteins Pea was ranked 1st for lowering your satiety and promoting a feeling of fullness.
Is Pea Protein technically a complete protein and does this matter?
Pea protein is especially rich in the important essential (BCAA’s) leucine, isoleucine and valine which help fuel working muscles and stimulate protein synthesis.
Pea protein contains all 9 of the Essentially Amino Acids. However, when it comes to methionine it only contains 11 mg/g instead of at least 25mg/g required to make it a “complete protein”. So technically Pea protein is not a complete protein.
This does not matter for 98% of people because Methionine is found in adequate amounts in many other foods; eggs cheese chicken, beef, fish, wheat germ, soybeans, oats, rice, quinoa, spirulina. So pea proteins small lack of this amino acid is only an issue if not eating any other sources of this amino
Plant protein blends can overcome the lack of methionine eg by adding inexpensive rice protein which is high in Methionine but this comes with other trade-offs. If your eating real foods containing Methionine there is no need to search for additional sources of methionine.
If 100% Unflavoured Pea protein isolate is overall a superior option to other plant protein sources why doesn’t everyone use it?
- Marketing tactics can mislead people
- Pea protein can be difficult to blend smoothly into shakes
- Unflavoured obviously doesn’t taste as sweet
Overall, who is Pea Protein Isolate a great option for?
Perfect for vegetarians, vegans and anybody with gut intolerance or sensitivities.
Also a great option for any calorie conscious people on a diet who find it hard to stick to their calorie goals.
