Premier Plant Protein liberates the nutritive power of high quality, living seeds, grains and legumes (pea) as a high quality, vegan protein powder. This product features premier types of plant-based protein, including premier quality pea protein, rice protein, pumpkin seed protein, quinoa seed protein and pomegranate seed protein. Premier Plant Protein is an excellent source of complete protein, providing 18 grams, or 36% of the Daily Value, plus it has all of the essential amino acids naturally present in plant-based sources.
In recent years, as the popularity of vegan diets (and food sensitivities) has increased, plant-based protein powders have been gaining the edge as an excellent, natural protein source over animal-based sources. Among protein sources, pea protein stands out for its excellent nutritional profile, as well as the versatility and protein attributes of the humble pea.
Plant-based protein, including pea protein, is a great option for individuals or families who have food sensitivities. Plantbased protein is naturally free of common allergens such as gluten, dairy, wheat and egg, so it may be one of the safer protein options available.
Pea protein is also ideal for weight maintenance support. Research has shown that pea protein can subdue ghrelin, a substance produced in the stomach that sends hunger signals to the brain. So that scoop of pea protein that you add to your breakfast smoothie may help keep your hands away from those snack bars until lunchtime!
An extra bonus! Pea protein does not typically cause bloating the way that whey protein sometimes can, so it may help you look and feel your best.
