When to use proteins?

  1. Choose vegetable protein

When choosing a protein, there is often the option of choosing either a dairy-based protein (whey protein or casein) or a plant-based protein. What can be decisive for the choice is that both casein and whey protein are a by-product of cheese production and are therefore cheap and readily available. Also, casein and whey protein contain milk sugar called 'lactose'. This can cause poor digestion, headaches, pimples and low energy.

With vegetable protein there is a much lower chance of these intolerances, so that all good nutritional values ​​can also be absorbed much better. A combination of brown rice protein and pea protein isolate ensure a high protein content in, for example, the Vegan proteins from Green Harvey (19 grams per portion). Many superfoods have been processed in this and the proteins are also gluten, dairy and soy free.
