Plant Proteins

It is no secret that protein powders are useful supplements for much needed nutrients that are required for muscle building and staying fit. Plant-based protein powders are good alternatives for vegans and people with lactose intolerance as they are made using plants. The most challenging and logistically impractical task for people consuming a plant based diet is to meet the protein requirement. Even if they do, plant protein meals are packed with carbs. This is where plant protein isolates come into play.

History of Plant Protein

Plant protein supplements first introduced in the 1950s, immediately following egg and whey protein. Many others were drawn to soy protein since it offered a plant-based alternative for those looking to gain muscle, lose weight, or use it as a quick meal replacement. However, because at least 80% of soy crops are genetically engineered, it has lost some of its appeal. Many people also name soy high on their list of food sensitivities because it includes antinutrients such as lectins and protease inhibitors that may interfere with gut absorption.

❝ With the advancement in science based Nutrition, it is now easier for people with different lifestyles to consume better quality protein which is also low in carbohydrates ❞

Pea protein Isolate Vs Pea protein Concentrate

Pea protein Isolate: It is typically produced from peas. The creation of pea protein isolate happens through a basic food production process that involves removing the pea’s outer shell and milling it into a flour. From there, the pea’s other ingredients like fiber and starch are separated through a filtration process. The pea protein is then distilled into a white precipitate, known as "Protein Powder".

Pea protein Concentrate: Pea protein concentrate contains less protein but contains either additional carbs and proteins or carbs and fats.

Which one to choose: In Protein Concentrate, the result is a powder that’s roughly 70% to 85% of pure protein with the remaining 15% to 30% (or sometimes more) consisting mostly of carbs and fats. Protein isolate takes this process a step further with isolation. It removes much more of the non-protein content.In short, the additional filtering process removes more carbs and fat, further isolating the protein.This process results in a higher percentage of protein of up to 95%.
