Pea protein is an excellent vegetable protein source made from extracting the soluble pea protein from yellow peas and is rich in essential amino acids. Cultivated for food since 6,000 B.C., they have provided people with a low-cost, nutrient-rich form of plant protein, necessary for good health. Pea protein is entirely plant-based. It is low in fat and carbohydrates and free of soy, gluten and lactose. These attributes deem pea protein suitable for those who suffer from food allergies and food sensitivities. Pea protein has a high biological value, meaning your body absorbs it easily. Pea protein delivers large amounts of the essential branched-chain amino acids; isoleucine, valine, arginine and lysine. It is satiety inducing and slowly digested for extended energy. Pea protein is often combined with rice protein to achieve a superior amino acid profile than either protein alone.
Brown Rice Protein
Brown rice protein is an excellent source of good quality protein made from the whole brown rice grain. Brown rice protein is a complete protein with a balanced amino acid profile and consumption of it ensures a vital role in a healthy nutrition. Even though there are several kinds of protein sources like soy and whey, brown rice protein excels above all of them for more than one reason. While whey protein comes from milk, it doesn’t suit some people because they do not wish to use animal-based protein. On the other hand, soy protein often is difficult for people to digest and may pose allergy risks. And sometimes consumers simply don’t like the taste of these organic proteins. In contrast to all these, brown rice protein is a vegan, hypo-allergenic protein that is easy to digest and good in taste. Apart from its individual inherent benefits, the presence and significance of brown rice protein in certain food ingredients enhances the nutritional quality of the product immensely. For this reason, nowadays, brown rice protein is part of the dietary staple for more than the half of the population of the world and is gradually catching up with the rest.
Stevia, the amazing plant originally from Paraguay, South America, has sweet leaves that contain about 30-45 times the sweetness of sugar with no calories! Used for hundreds of years by the natives of this region to sweeten their food, it has now become the most important sweetener, in its purified form, for use in foods as a healthy alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose.
For best taste and texture start with adding one scoop of PCN Organic Complete Plant Protein powder to 4 oz of water and 3 oz of unsweetened non-dairy milks (almond, rice, cashew, etc). Make sure you add liquid first and powder second, to prevent powder lumping and sticking to the bottom of a shaker. Add more fluids to your liking, and you can always be creative with adding the protein powder to your favorite shake or smoothie. Place all ingredients into shaker cup or blender and mix well until smooth. Please visit our Nutrition page for delicious smoothie ideas and recipes.
*Please note: For consumers not familiar with plant proteins, we strongly suggest you mix the plant protein powder with UNSWEETENED almond milk, or any other UNSWEETENED non-dairy milk, and of course adding it to your smoothie will integrate even better. This will provide smoother texture and overall better taste. It will be an acquired taste for those making a switch from dairy based proteins, but once the switch is made your body will thank you for it in many different ways!
