Why Vegan Protein Powder is not just for the cool kids of LA
Now, we know that many of you have been hovering over our vegan range. Heck, some of you have even placed it into your basket only to ghost it and we don’t blame you. Choosing a new protein powder is a serious commitment. Your protein shake is not only your most important gym partner but also that delicious treat at the end of your exercise rainbow.
If you have been considering adding vegan protein into your supplements repertoire, here are a few things to consider. Because sometimes the choice comes down to necessity while other times it may be an ethical choice. Whatever your choice may be, here are 5 reasons to consider trying the happy way vegan protein range.
Not all proteins are made equal
When it comes to choosing which protein is best for us, there are many factors to take into consideration. Between dietary requirements, allergies, intolerances, food preferences and even ethics, ensuring we receive an adequate daily intake can be a complex task. While animal sources of protein such as chicken, beef, fish, eggs and dairy provide a complete amino acids profile, making them a ‘complete protein’, plant-based sources do not.
For many vegans and vegetarians, this often means having to strategically combine different sources of plant-based protein to help ensure a ‘complete protein’ profile. The Happy Way Vegan protein range, however, combines both pea and brown rice protein to ensure a complete amino acids profile making it a suitable supplement for vegans, vegetarians, fussy eaters and those who simply do not consume enough protein in their diets.
It will keep your stomach happy
Whether you are lactose intolerances or allergic to milk, drinking whey protein powders may cause digestive discomfort such as stomach cramps, bloating and in more severe cases diarrhoea. Even though some lactose is filtered and removed during the process of packaging whey and casein powders, even a small amount may cause discomfort for individuals who have food allergies or experience digestive issues.
Plant-based protein powders offer a suitable alternative as they are hypoallergenic meaning they are unlikely to cause your body to respond to them in a negative way. For anyone with digestive issues, vegan protein powders are easier to digest and don’t cause inflammation in the stomach.
It’s not just dairy free, it’s also squeaky clean
