Why more and more people choose plant protein, not whey?
One of the most common questions we hear is, “Why do plant protein exceed whey?” Let us talk about the pros and cons of whey and plant protein and why we chose to make our new Brown Rice Protein Powder 100% plant-based.
What are the differences between traditional whey protein and plant-based protein?
Whey protein is derived from cow’s milk. Whey protein is a by-product of the cheese manufacturing process and is the liquid that is left behind after milk is curdled and strained. Since whey protein is an animal-based protein, it is a complete protein meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids. Plant protein, or plant-based protein, is protein derived from plants. Wuhu Deli’s plant protein includes brown rice protein, pea protein, hemp protein.
Whey protein is a common allergen that affects the immune system of people who are allergic to it. Plant protein is a source of proteins that are more easily digested by the human body without any side effects associated with whey proteins.
Another disadvantage of whey and plant protein is that whey comes from dairy cows and contains no other nutrients except protein. Plant proteins are usually rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fibers, which are key components of brain and body health.
Now the health benefits of a plant-based, nutritious diet have been widely recognized by nutritionists. Therefore, vegetarians and non-vegetarians can try to absorb most or all of the protein from plants, rather than red meat.
Deli Brand plant protein is organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-free, and rich in phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fibers. It’s a good source of protein supplements.
