Some vegan and vegetarian diets can be low in protein, and the protein can be of a low biological value. 90+ Vegan allows you to get pure protein with a high biological value, without the need for animal products.
Nutrisport 90+ Vegan is a low fat, low sugar powder isolated from peas, contains No Animal Products and No Cholestrerol.
Pea Protein contains all of the essential, non-essential and branched chain amino acids. Vegetables can be very high in protein but tend to be limited in certain essential amino acids.
Vegetable proteins tend to be limiting in certain amino acids so it is good to mix different vegetable sources. Grains are low in sulphur containing amino acids whilst pulses tend to be low in lysine.
Mixing grains and pulses produces high quality proteins comparable to animal protein without the associated fat and cholesterol.
Rice protein compared favourably with whey protein in the Nutrition Journal trials shown below.
Pea protein is not associated with fat or cholesterol, as is the case with many animal based proteins. Pea protein has one of the highest Lysine contents of all vegetable protein – this amino acid is important in maintaining lean muscle mass. It also has the highest content of Arginine of all commercially available proteins.
