Plant-based vs Whey protein

Organic protein powder is the top choice for those suffering from allergies or intolerances or bloating from dairy products. In contrast to whey protein powders, the organic ones have alkalizing properties, contain a good amount of fats, vitamins and minerals, while some of them, such as pea and pumpkin protein, are rich in iron. They are also hypoallergenic (unless there is an allergy to a specific ingredient) and easily digestible, compared to purified animal proteins. In addition, they retain the benefits of the plant foods from which they come, having undergone minimal processing, so that they can be recognized by the body as high quality foods, especially when in contact with water.

Common sources of organic protein are legumes, such as peas, beans (yellow peas) or soybeans, seeds, such as sunflower, pumpkin, chia or hemp seeds, nuts, such as almonds or walnuts, and even rice. Each organic protein has its own characteristics, but when mixed, the final product combines the benefits of both proteins and contains even bigger amounts of amino acids.
