Check out our blog to discover our vegan food review, where we give you the lowdown on what’s great (or not) about popular vegan diets. Alternatively, you can try out our vegan recipes, like these delicious homemade vegan protein falafels.
Vegan protein is ideal for anyone looking to build and maintain muscle mass, or simply meet their protein needs, while on a vegan diet. Vegan protein supplements can give your body the essential amino acids it needs to support protein synthesis — a process needed to grow and maintain muscles.
Vegan protein and whey protein are both effective supplements to help support the growth and maintenance of muscle. Many non-vegans use a vegan protein powder as it is dairy-free and some may find that it is easier to digest than dairy proteins like whey.
Vegan protein powders are a complete protein source when two or more plant proteins with complementary amino acid profiles are combined. Our Vegan Perfection Special Series, for example, contains pea and rice protein, which together form a complete protein. Soy protein is a complete vegan protein source by itself and does not need to be combined. You can find a high-quality form in our Soy Protein Isolate.
As with any food, vegan protein powders contain calories. If taking them contributes to you being in a calorie surplus (eating more calories than you burn), then you will naturally gain weight. Vegan protein supplements can be used as part of a bulking or weight gain programme. If you're losing weight and want to support the maintenance of muscle, (vegan) protein is a great way to do that.
