White Wolf Nutrition Vegan Protein: How does it stack up?
With the emergence of numerous vegan supplements on the Australian market, it's hard to determine which ones the right one for you especially when it comes to your source of protein, you want to know which one will give you your best value for money, which one uses high quality ingredients and overall is going to work for you and compliment your current food options. This review is of White Wolf Nutrition's Vegan Protein and brought to you by Pinnacle Performance & Nutrition.
Why Is Pea Protein Powder A Good Option?
First, pea protein is plant-based, which automatically means it is an excellent option for vegans. But, even if you are not vegan, you can find plant-based proteins beneficial, and especially pea protein, which we will explain below.
Good For Lactose-Intolerant People
Yes, whey protein has high bioavailability, and will support muscle growth like no other, but only if you can tolerate it. Many people find dairy products irritating, no matter how clean the protein isolate is. Gastrointestinal discomfort is common if you are lactose intolerant, and if that is true, you will be better off avoiding whey and casein protein powders.
Pea protein is plant-based, which means it won't cause gastrointestinal discomfort. In fact, the pea is hypoallergenic, and will rarely cause issues. It is also gluten-free, which means that most people can consume it without any discomfort.
An Excellent Protein Source
Pea protein is an excellent protein source, as it contains all nine amino acids that are needed to support muscle growth. However, it is lacking in methionine, which would be a problem if you consume it alone. But, White Wolf is a blend, and because of this, you will get methionine from other sources.
Pea protein is abundant in BCAAs, which are very important for muscle growth, and a popular supplement on their own, lowed by gym bros around the globe. Branch chain amino acids are essential for building muscles, and pea protein is stacked with arginine, leucine, and valine, all of which promote growth and recovery.
All in all, for plant-based proteins, the pea is an excellent choice, as it is easily digested and absorbed, and will support muscle growth.
Besides protein, this supplement is rich in iron and considering that many people are iron-deficient, this is a big plus.
Has A Pleasant Taste And Is Easily Soluble
Not many plant-based protein powders can brag about having good taste, as most are quite earthy. Also, many are not easily soluble, which can create problems if you want to use the powder as a food ingredient.
Well, the pea protein is not like that. The taste is much better than in most other plant-based proteins, and it doesn't clump as much, which makes it a good ingredient.
That's probably because peas have a naturally high protein count, which means they need to get treated less before they end up as powder, making pea protein much less processed if we can say that for a powder supplement.
Because it is easy to make, pea protein is also quite affordable, which matters if you are looking for protein powder on a tight budget.
