Pea protein contains legumin which has some similar properties to casein, and pea protein products are promoted as an alternative to whey protein. Pea protein is allergen-friendly for those suffering from common food allergens such as dairy, wheat, soy, and egg. Pea protein is also suitable for vegans and those following a plant-based or vegetarian diet. Even better, pea protein is a highly sustainable protein choice, especially compared to animal proteins, which have a large carbon and water footprint.
Unlike some plant-based protein powders, Pea protein is well digested and highly available.
Some believe Pea protein is almost as good as whey protein for building muscle and recovering from workouts. Pea protein is unique in that it is rich in essential amino acids and in branched-chain amino acids.
