Plant-based proteins are more than just a trend. The rising demand for these types of products is a reflection, among other things, of an increasingly health-conscious consumer.
While soy may be the king of plant-based proteins, it certainly isn’t the only option in the market. Here are a few popular soy alternatives:
Pea protein supplies adequate amounts of 8 of the 9 essential amino acids that a healthy body requires. Like other proteins, it is also very effective for helping you feel satiated, thus helping to curb cravings. Pea protein is easily digested and has a lower allergy risk than common protein sources, such as soy and dairy
Quinoa has a higher protein content than other grains such as corn or barley. Is a highly nutritious and richer in protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals than other grains. Plus, it’s gluten-free!
Organic Flax Seed
Traditionally used to relieve abdominal discomfort, flax seed has hidden superpowers: it’s high in alpha linolenic acids (one of the heart-friendly omega 3 fatty acids) and rich in protein, fiber and minerals like phosphorus, which works with calcium to build bone strength.
These plant proteins do not contain dairy or lactose, making them a viable option for people with some of the most common allergies.
