Common Myths About Plant Based Protein Powders

Published : Jun 27, 2020 3 mins read Updated On : Oct 31, 2023


Proteins are considered building blocks of life. Every cell in the body requires protein for smooth and efficient functioning. Proteins basically consist of chains of amino acids. While it is of paramount importance to consume protein on a regular basis, there is a mountain of disinformation. In this article, we will try and clear all myths about plant-based protein.

Common Myths About Plant Based Protein Powders

Once you start plant-based protein, you will always face questions like Where do you get protein? Is your protein complete so on and so forth? What people know about a protein-based diet is a mixture of fiction and fact. Most of the information we have is half correct and most importantly we are taught that only complete protein that is complete and best is animal sourced.

So over here we will help to clear out some facts and bust outdated myths about plant-based proteins.

MYTH 1: ALL PLANT PROTEINS ARE INCOMPLETE PROTEINS – ONLY ANIMAL PROTEINS ARE COMPLETE.

To start with, the notion that all plant protein powders are incomplete or have limited essential amino acids is completely false. While there are sources of proteins that are incomplete. With Fast&Up Plant Protein Isolate intelligent combination of Pea and Brown Rice protein is used as the source of protein, which is considered a complete protein.

Brown Rice protein completely complements Pea protein. PDCAAS score for Pea + Brown Rice protein is 1.0 i.e. highest score which is equivalent to animal-sourced protein. Let us see an example of the same Pea protein is low in amino acids cysteine and methionine, but rich in lysine it goes perfectly with Brown Rice protein which is low in lysine but a rich source of cysteine and methionine.

MYTH 2: ANIMAL-SOURCED PROTEINS ARE THE BEST PROTEINS AVAILABLE

Ask anyone which is the best protein source 7 out of 10 people would say animal sources are best or plant protein ranks second best to the animal. Although animal-based proteins have a complete 9 essential amino acids. But there are flip sides as well it comes with unhealthy levels of Saturated Fats, Cholesterol, and Sodium.

Fast&Up Plant Protein Isolate also contains all essential 9 amino acids that are completely vegan and do not have excess Carbohydrates, Fats, and Salts.

MYTH 3: THE NUTRIENT PROFILE OF ANIMAL-SOURCED IS BETTER THAN PLANT-SOURCED PROTEIN

When it comes to amino acids, yes animal sources are considered to be complete sources, Plant based can be combined to provide all essential amino acids. Other than that Animal sources have high Sodium, Fats, and Carbohydrates, but lack essential fibers, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Pea protein used in Plant protein isolate is a rich source of protein along with Iron and Vitamins. Brown Rice proteins are hypoallergic and naturally loaded with all essential amino acids, fiber, and Vitamins.

MYTH 4: MUSCLE BUILDING CAN BE DONE ONLY BY USING ANIMAL PROTEINS

This myth is most prevalent and endorsed by most people almost exclusively. There is much scientific research that backs the that Plant protein is equally potent and helpful in muscle building when compared to animal protein with the added advantage that they do not cause any GI distress or Bloating.

Plant proteins also help in increasing muscle thickness, promoting a lean body, and helping in muscle repair and development and muscle recovery.
