All bodybuilders need protein to enhance muscle growth, hit their macros and recovery properly no matter what dietary restrictions they may have. As the rise in Vegan nutrition continues to become more commonplace, the need for better supplement alternatives has become more important than ever. In this article, we will look at the protein types that are available for Vegan athletes and what makes each a great option to add to your supplement line.
Soy protein is perhaps the most common protein type that people associate with Vegan athletes. This perception is rooted in the fact that many people believe that Vegan diets include soy as a staple product in the form of tofu or tempeh. However, soy products, including protein powders, provide a range of minerals, vitamins and essential amino acids.
Although hemp has become well known for its involvement in CBD products since the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, it has long been a sustainable and environmentally friendly protein type for Vegan athletes. Hemp protein can be absorbed quickly and easily by the body and is more anabolic than traditional whey protein. This makes it a great option for anyone looking to pack on muscle.
Among actual Vegan Athletes, pea protein has become one of the favorite options available. With large quantities of BCAAs and minimal side-effects or allergy risks, pea protein is a great natural alternative to existing protein types. Even better, it typically isn’t as gritty as other Vegan protein products and maintains a great flavor profile when formulated properly.
Brown Rice Protein
As a hypoallergenic option, brown rice protein has transcended just the Vegan section at health stores. This feature makes it a popular protein type for not only Vegan athletes, but also anyone that has allergies to soy, gluten or dairy. Like other proteins, brown rice contains a variety of amino acids to enhance recovery and continue building muscle.
